in Lists, The 80s

These days, mustaches are a trend. Nothing more than an internet meme and an extension of hipster branding. In the 1980s though, mustaches were legit.

They weren’t there to capitalize on some internet popularity contest or to make a fashion statement. Back then, mustaches were hairy extensions of virile ass kickers. Only the manliest men or downright coolest cats in the land could wear a ‘stache. The 80s brought us a ton of different mustaches, from the fancy ladies men, to the brawlin’ bruisers with big bushy upper lips.

Today we pay tribute to the 20 ‘staches that made children of the 80s realize mustaches were cool in every month, not just “Movember”.
