We’re five days into Movember 2012, the charity campaign that sees blokes growing a moustache to raise awareness of the dangers of prostate cancer. If you’re taking part, but have ended up with a tache more like Basil Brush’s tail than a finely groomed Errol Flynn number, you’ll be pleased to hear that Gillette are opening up a unique pop-up …
Moustache Season is upon us as Movember kicks off tomorrow. So its time to man up and grow that cookie duster. Every November, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim is simply to help raise money and awareness of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and …

Moustache gloves. You heard me, moustache gloves. Just in case this hasn’t sunk in: MOUSTACHE GLOVES! In a week of strange pairings Jack Spade has knocked up these eccentric hand socks for the Colette x Gap pop up store in New York. Other than they are available in three colours there’s not a great deal I can say about these because lets face it the pictures speak for themselves, more of which are available over at highsnobiety.com.
And before I start I should probably apologise for that awful Daily Mail-used pun.
