|Dave and woodsy moustache|
I've heard that growing a moustache is harder on the the wives and partners, whose patience with the bristles is to be praised, than it is on the men. That's what I've heard from wives and partners.
What I suspect is that if moustaches didn't speak so eloquently of the 70s, more men would be doing this year round.
What I personally feel is that a moustache (on a man) is almost always flattering, but that's just me.
