How it's Spelled and What it is
That's Fu Manchu. A mustache that grows down along the sides of the mouth to the chin or below. Originated with a character in novels created by Sax Rohmer. Wanna see what was cool back then? Check it out (along with many other mustache styles) at http://www.americanmustacheinstitute.org/MustacheStyles.aspx . Famous Fu Manchu 'staches include Joe Namath (note, he also wore panty hose in 1970s commercials) and Hulk Hogan. Yeah, this bad boy is not ever going to make it onto the faces of one of my romantic heroes! Yuck!
