Mustaches, long relegated to the likes of William Howard Taft and your over-enthusiastic uncle (the guy who only visited once a year and always brought age-inappropriate gifts) are making a re-appearance on upper lips everywhere.

  • Assertion of virility
  • Distinct advantage when chopping wood
  • Association with Jay Dockendorf
  • Although he can’t touch Taft’s tremendous facial hair, James Franco pulls one off in a way that most under-30s could never imagine.
