I know how it is. You go through phases. Sometimes you feel like a mustache, sometimes you don’t! When you get an itch to grow a ‘stache, you may as well take the opportunity to expand your fashion sense and sport a manly hat, too. Not sure which cap is right for you? It might not be able to talk, but your mustache may indeed have a lot to say about your hat style! Let us take a look and a lesson from the stars.
The Chevron — The Safari
When I think of celebs with mustaches, Tom Selleck is at the top of the list! A ‘stache veteran, Tom is known for sporting the chevron. So which hat is a match? The safari hat, also known as the Indiana Jones hat, suits the chevron well. Whether you’re heading to the cigar bar with pals or taming lions in the wild, these two are a perfect match. [Editor’s Note: Not many folks know it but…Mr Selleck did audition for Raiders of the Lost Ark but in the end turned down the part. This above photo is from his screen test. Silly Magnum.]
The Horseshoe — The Cowboy
He may be a pilot, but I think John Travolta should trade in his Boeing 707 for a bucking bronco! After all, what would make a better match for the horseshoe mustache than a cowboy hat? Whether you live on a farm or just enjoy the country lifestyle, these two are a match made in heaven. (Err…Texas?)
The Pencil — The Newsboy
Doesn’t Brad look just dapper with a pencil mustache? For those stately gents with a vintage vibe, the pencil is a perfect way to ease into the mustache. Looking for a cap to match? The newsboy adds a boyish yet classy charm to match your best one yet — your mustache, of course.
The Handlebar — The Fedora
An edgier take on the mustache, the handlebar adds a slick, cool-cat image to Mel Gibson’s look, don’t you think? The perfect mate for a goatee, this facial hair is also ideal for the fedora-loving man. Dress it up or dress it down — the choice is yours!
