Greatest Moustaches in History


#1

There are a number of us who are follically inclined, and those of us who sport fantastic upper lip accoutrements, such as @Spartacus

That begs the question - Who rocked the best moustache in known history? The Sultan of 'Stashe, the Colonel of Chops?

I begin by nominating Ambrose E. Burnside (1824 - 1881) American Solider, Industrialist and Politician.

The late, great, WW2 ace Robin Olds sported such a great mustache while in Vietnam that members of the USAF emulate it to this day as a “good natured protest” every March. Though for Olds, it wasn’t just an epic accessory, but a “… middle finger I couldn’t raise in the PR photographs. The mustache became my silent last word in the verbal battles…with higher headquarters on rules, targets, and fighting the war.”

Happy Mustache March!

…though I can’t seem to get his clean-shaven look out of my head.

For facial hair, I don’t think the Victorians can be beaten. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the Empire started to go into decline as beards began to diminish.
