Not to be all about moustaches, but did you know that the World Beard and Moustache Championships were recently held in in Leogang, Austria? Results will be published here. And just yesterday, the 2015 Just for Men® National Beard and Moustache Championships® presented by Hanes X-Temp® took place in Brooklyn, New York. Details here.
Also, the British Army required every soldier to have a mustache from in 1860-1916.
That’s all I can manage to say, really. Via.

While some are tired of the push for Anchorman 2, some of us are only too delighted to spot Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy “everywhere”. Tomorrow’s premier is still too long to wait, so I’ve gone looking for Ron and Anchorman goodies. You’ve probably heard of the Ron Burgundy underwear from Jockey (also available at Amazon), the scotch (not just any scotch, the Great Odin’s Raven Special Reserve), and Ben & Jerry’s Ron Burgundy’s Scotchy Scotch Scotch ice cream too; but here are some of my favorites.
The Ron Burgundy Wallet and Mustache Set is prefect for those of who love money and mustaches. (Who does that leave out? No one.)
This 13 inch talking doll action figure of Ron Burgundy says 10 phrases from the first Anchorman, The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
Then there’s the Battle Ready Ron Burgundy
doll action figure — don’t worry, additional Anchorman “Battle Ready” action figures, including Brick, Brian, and Champ are due from Beeline Creative in the coming months.
Unfortunately, no on seems to have made any Veronica Corningstone merch. That’s a damn shame. Some merch guys & toy makers must have gone on vacation with Tits McGee. I have at least a dozen ideas; so ping me.

And by “we” I mean Kitschy Kitschy Coo and the Smithsonian — and the Smithsonian really wants to know, “Who has your favorite historic facial hair?”
While there are tons of old photographs to choose from (including at the Smithsonian’s Pinterest Board), I’m going to vote for Dwight Blocker Bowers. Not for his own mustache (I’m not even sure he has one!) but because he’s a curator in the Division of Culture and the Arts and, as such, is in charge of these fake mustaches.
These beauties were once worn by actor James Whitmore in his titular role in Bully: An Adventure with Teddy Roosevelt (the one-man stage drama by playwright Jerome Alden).
I won’t point any fingers, but someone we know (*cough* hubby) collects old wigs; I find the old facial-hair wigs much more interesting.

Take a side, shave a side (burn), and maybe make it in the movie.
It seems you can 3D print anything these days, from a bikini to a gum-chewer’s face to a gun — but some people in Colorado are putting the technology to an even better use: manufacturing fake mustaches in fancy colors! If you live in Denver you can get one of your own this weekend, by attending the “Intro to 3D Printing” class at The Concoctory on Saturday.
For girls and boys who like pink, mustache lip balm. Raspberry Fizz moustache wax, anyone?
You know we love our facial hair here at Kitschy Kitschy Coo, so we greatly enjoyed viewing these mustache styles from The Art and Craft of Hairdressing (1958). Via The Worker-Dandyist International.
