When did you grow your first mustache?

When did you grow your first mustache?

It was probably as recently as '04 or '05. It was a full goatee. My hair is jet black, my mustache is brown and then the bottom of the beard is blond and red. And that was starting to go gray.

I'm like, "You know, this is really strange." In the shower one day, I just decided to take the chin off and stick with that. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing.

Have you ever shaved it?

Nope. If it ain't broke, why fix it?

Why wear a mustache?

I don't know. There's no real reason. I'm content with the way it looks, and it makes me easily recognizable, that's for sure. I don't easily get confused with other people.

Not everybody can pull one off. You can manipulate a beard in a lot of ways to make it suit you, but with the upper-lip hair, you can either pull it off or you just can't.

Have you ever rocked other styles?

No. I never tried just the lip. That's tough. You run the real risk of looking like either a French waiter or a '70s porn star - which could be good in either circumstance but can be really terrible in either circumstance, too.

How do you maintain it?

It's low maintenance. I just trim it periodically. I shave my head in the shower, so it's easy to do it all in one fell swoop.

And, for the record, I'm a big proponent of the ladies' Venus five-blade. It's the ultimate razor for men. No doubt about it. You could circumcise a cricket with one of those things.

Do you have a name for your 'stache ?

No, I don't. I never even thought about it.
