Face it, you’re going to want to do it at some point. And sure, people will try and discourage you, but people doubting you just drives you on. Listening to naysayers is for lesser men. Go ahead, rock the ‘stache, if you wanna. Don’t let your mom, your girlfriend, your boss, basic standards of decency stand in the way of rocking a proper nose-neighbor like (honorable mention) Ned Flanders.
Here’s our tribute to men so goddamn manly, they can pull off the riskiest of facial hair tricks. With panache.
10. Alex Trebek
This mustache assures the ladies he knows all the answers.
9. Ryan Gosling
He just makes it work. No, that doesn’t make us gay. Shut up.
Niiiice! Yeah, we know the actor’s name.
7. Charlie Chaplin
No one ever wears this mustache anymore. Chaplin rocked this look so hard, it was retired, forever. Pretty sure that’s what happened.
6. Frank Zappa
No you cannot pull off this look unless your name is Zappa. And it isn’t, so don’t try.
5. Michael Cera
And as counter-point, this is also a look you can’t pull off. He really can’t either.
4. Lawrence Olivier
What? Merely the greatest actor of all time. Seriously, history didn’t begin when you were born.
3. Sean Connery
Connery. The man is, like, a 140 years old and everything he does is still cool.
2. Tom Selleck
1. Sam Elliott
As if there was ever any doubt. The Dude most definitely abides. Bow down, fellas.
