Hey guys, I'm a bit if a long-time lurker on SF but I just found this thread through a google search. There's a definite niche for pointing out the "emperor's new clothes" aspects of menswear blogging.
Hope this isn't resurrecting a dead thread, but these are too good to pass up on, even if TSB is shooting fish in a barrel.http://tsbmen.com/34230/how-to-pull-off-movember-the-gentlemo/
Mustaches don’t have to be silly or ironic. There was a day when a gentleman wore a mustache proudly. It was a symbol of masculinity and integrity.
As Zach from AmongMen wrote after our interview last week:
“There’s two ways you can think about Movember. 1) A lark. A chance to leave your face unshaven and make beard/lumberjack/manly man/bear arms jokes for a month. 2) A serious moment to engage in serious conversation about what it means to be a man, and an attempt to raise awareness about the risks and requisite negotiations of manhood, both physical and cultural. Think of the moustache part of Movember as the outlet, the button, on a much larger opportunity to shape and consider one’s self as a man, a care-taking and consideration of manhood itself.
