There have been times in sporting history when moustaches were as crucial to success as actual playing ability, if not more so. Those times were the 80s. For those of us who grew up in that decade, surviving despite the malnutrition caused by a diet Smash and tinned peaches, the moustache was an emblem of impressive manliness with a devilish flourish, the choice of the rogues and the renegade on the fields of play. We were young kids, we didn’t know shit. But the impression was made, and we cannot be alone in therefore being deeply impressed by the new shoot by Movember. As the charity kicks off its activity from 1st November, they have gathered some famous faces to recreate the classic looks of sporting legends, to inspire men up and down the country to grow a mo and help save men’s lives.
