It's long been known that wearing a mustache is not fashionable, but what I was wondering is, when did this become the case? When I had my old job, I was forced to shave off the goatee portion of my facial hair, which was devastating to me. I left the 'stache only, apparently only to be ridiculed by friends and called "Magnum". Well, Thomas Magnum was one of my earliest TV heroes... So what then, biznatch? Still, I admittedly felt like it was a neutered goatee. Eventually I shaved it all off, only to lose that crappy job later and grow back the full deal. Going back to the mustache, though, why has it been decided that the average male, i.e. not Tom Selleck or Peter Cullen, cannot have a mustache? I saw this on "Undateable" on VH1 as well. Having one makes you undateable in the eyes of pretentious fashion people! I mean, is it really that bad? How did this happen?
