Shaving News 6.19.09: It Seems to be All About Moustaches
This week in Shaving the Web:
Guys, please, stash the artless 'stache:
" Have you seen Michael Phelps lately? When I saw a picture of him earlier this week looking like member of the Village People, I just about lost it.
Cheese-stache, porn-stache, it doesn't matter what you call it. Ironic facial hair needs to go away."
Proctor & Gamble (Gillette) Purchases Art Of Shaving:
"Procter & Gamble Co., which recently made the phrase "win with men" an incessant company mantra, is now fully armed to target the premium male shopper with its Monday purchase of the prestige grooming firm The Art of Shaving."
Men with moustaches comprise exclusive group with an eclectic metro membership:
"It's an iconic look historically grown here by the blue-collar set. The 'stache is part of the uniform for ranchers, laborers, roughnecks and cowboys of all manner of industry -- men with skin as tough as their boots and whiskers as stiff as a grill brush.
The mustache has seen a recent renaissance, however, this time from the follicles of young men whose working toils are decidedly less rugged."
Time Magazine's Justin Fox on Economics and Mustaches:
"Fox, a clean shaven mortal who suffers from Bare Upper Lip Disorder (BULD), is a friend to people of mustached American descent, and writes Time's very fine Curious Capitalist blog. He also has a new book out which made the St. Louis Post-Dispatch list of 15 nonfiction books to read this summer. It's called "The Myth of the Rational Market: A History of Risk, Reward & Delusion on Wall Street" and we urge you to purchase here despite the fact that Fox promised to hook us up with Tom Friedman of the New York Times and it never came to fruition (he did buy us a few beers once, however)."
The world's most famous moustaches - shaved:
"The moustache is back. After years of tragic disuse and abuse, this commanding symbol of manly authority (and its current backdrop, Bob Ainsworth) has made a celebrated return to Cabinet in the reshuffle.
Bob's moustache is the first proper version to enter the cabinet on the face of a Labour minister in around 40 years, so it seems somehow serendipitous that Russian bloggers have just compiled a list of the top moustachioed celebrities of all time - and shaved them of their facial hair. Here's the five best, dedicated to you, Bob."
