Best Culture Moustaches

Happy Movember! Throughout the month of November, the annual event is designed to raise awareness about issues around men’s health. Organisers encourage men to grow out their moustaches to “change the face of men’s health” and get involved in programs that help early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers that hit men the hardest. So to celebrate Movember and the glorious art of growing a magnificent mo’, we decided to share some of our favourites from the lands of games, television, and movies. We’ve got some classic moustaches, so take a look and let us know which one you think is the best.

Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV (Magnum, P.I.)

Magnum P.I.’s signature mo is the mustache against which all others are measured. Period. Tom Selleck‘s glorious display of facial hair not only defined a TV character, it defined an entire generation of American men. Just try to go back and find a picture of a group of men from the ’80s where at least one isn’t proudly wearing a “Magnum.” It isn’t possible.

Much like the character himself, the Magnum P.I. mustache is unruly and unorthodox, yet soft-spoken and refined. It is just as easily at home strolling the beach in a Hawaiian-print shirt, flip flops, short shorts, and Detroit Tigers baseball cap as it is dressed up for a night on the town in a tuxedo, behind the wheel of a red Ferrari. Coupled with a generous helping of chest hair and a charming, partially-obscured smile, there is no greater indicator of raw masculinity. [Matthew Allen]

John Watson (Sherlock)

Hands down, the best moustache for Movember is John Watson at the beginning of . Trying to move on from his life with Sherlock, Watson settles down with a loving girlfriend and is ready to propose and move in with her. He also has a fully grown moustache.

Given a two minute talk by Sherlock, the harsh truth comes out — nobody actually likes the moustache. For all the hard work John has put in, it is all swiftly erased by one of Sherlock’s trademark deductions. As Movember moustaches go, however, this little guy did it absolutely perfectly. [Graham Host]

Toshiro Mifune (Rashomon)


One of Japan’s greatest actors sported an iconic yet evolving moustache throughout many of his film roles. Toshiro Mifune played the bandit Tajomaru in director Akira Kurosawa’s 1950 film, Rashomon. Rashomon was the fifth in Mifune’s legendary partnership with Kurosawa, which spanned 16 films and nearly two decades. It wasn’t the first time that Mifune sported a moustache on-screen, but it fit perfectly with his character. (It’s a shame that Mifune turned down the parts of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader after George Lucas reportedly offered them to him.)

For the part of Tajomaru, Mifune merged his body language with his research on the movements of lions. And his moustache certainly added emphasis to his character’s manic unkempt attitude. Mifune is proof that yes, some Asian men can grow moustaches. Too bad I’m not one of them. [James Akinaka]

John Ruth (The Hateful Eight)

Amid all the blood, mistrust, and despicable behaviour in Quentin Tarantino’s eighth feature film, The Hateful Eight, there is one ray of sunshine. That is John Ruth’s amazing moustache. Actor Kurt Russell actually grew out this beauty, and it’s one of the few things in the film that makes you smile. When Ruth looks down at former Confederate Chris Mannix and defiantly tugs his moustache, it is one of the greatest things in all of the history of cinema.

It’s a moustache that no other actor could ever pull off. We were lucky to see its glory, even if it was so short-lived. And anyone else trying to emulate this wonder of nature makes me want to horselaugh! [Drew Dietsch]
