When did you grow your first mustache?

When did you grow your first mustache?

I've had it since college. I looked like I was 14 when I was 20, and I thought, "Well, if I grow this mustache, it will make up for the fact that I don't have any pectoral muscles." It didn't work. Then it blended right in with the '70s, so I was in style for a while.

Have you ever shaved it?

I've never shaved it off. It's like a virgin mustache - the original hairs are still there.

My wife has always wanted me to keep it. My daughter, who just turned 20, has been bugging me to get rid of it since she was, like, five.

I get pulled in both directions. If I shave it off now, and I don't like the way I look, it's gonna come in all gray. I'm going to look like Captain Kangaroo.

Why wear a mustache?

It's kind of like a third eyebrow now. I don't feel like I could shave it off. It's like my brand.

Have you ever rocked other styles?

Initially, it was whatever would grow there. I had hardly begun to shave at 20. It gradually filled in. I just kind of let it go the way it wanted to go. I learned over the years how to trim it so it wasn't hanging over my lip excessively.

How do you maintain it?

I used to have this mustache comb, a real tiny thing with a little handle. I have a little pair of scissors. Then I got an electric razor, and it's a lot easier. You just do it with that.

Do you have a name for it?

The Don Corleone.
