It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Beard: A November Series on Facial Hair

beards.jpg
The second week of November is upon us! And thus the fine gentlemen participating in Movember have developed their creepy facial hair even further. Moustaches that were once wisps reminiscent of an untweezed female upper lip are now patchy, pubescent and stubbly. We checked in with the guys at Practical Law's Midtown offices to see how their mo's were holding up.

The office got involved after they received an email about their London branch joining the cause. This lead to a drunken evening during which the decision was made to get hairy. Now, the Practical Law team stands a dozen members strong, all of whom are quite proud of their moustaches. We interviewed a few of them to see how things were going.

Jonathan Kramer:

In a word, describe how your moustache is feeling?
Itchy.

Do people think you're a sexual predator?
Absolutely. I hear it a lot on my commute from Long Island.

What has the response been from your significant other?
Quite positive.

Are you modeling your moustache after any particular style or celebrity?
No, but I go by Kramer, so I'm going to name it "The Kramer Stache."

Do you plan on making practical use of your moustache, such as using it for storage?
I am a big fan of storage auctions. I like "Storage Wars." But most importantly, I think this is going to help me with my storage barometer of finding the better units, because of the magic that is the moustache.

How's your razor burn doing?
It's holding up well. It's all about Kiehl's skin balm.


Steve Weiner:

In a word, describe how your moustache is feeling?
Adolescent.

Do people think you're a sexual predator?
Yes. I'm not allowed within four feet of a school. I had my windowless van revoked, and I'm not allowed to carry candy.

What has the response been from your significant other?
They can't look at me directly.

Are you modeling your moustache after any particular style or celebrity?
I'd like to grow a Magnum P.I. moustache. But I'm not that good, so it's more like a Minimum P.I. moustache.

Inspirational Mo's

Do you plan on making practical use of your moustache, such as using it for storage?
Hopefully not.

How's your razor burn doing?
I have very sensitive skin, and I have to shave every day now, so Kiehl's is my friend.


James Busso:

In a word, describe how your moustache is feeling?
Invigorating.

Do people think you're a sexual predator?
Not yet. I think they think I'm an extra for the Zorro cast.

What has the response been from your significant other?
My wife's not crazy about it, but my mother-in-law thinks it makes me look more dashing.

Are you modeling your moustache after any particular style or celebrity?
Well Zorro, and I think Ricky Ricardo grew one like this, so they're my inspiration.

Do you plan on making practical use of your moustache, such as using it for storage?
No. I use it to help me with critical thinking.

How's your razor burn doing?
It's ok. I actually use Neutrogena.


Brendon O'Brien:

In a word, describe how your moustache is feeling?
Unsure of itself. Schizophrenic!

Do people think you're a sexual predator?
I hope not.

What has the response been from your significant other?
My fianceƩ looks at it and shakes her head. And with other people, I constantly feel the need to explain the reason why I'm growing it, almost as if I need the excuse.

Are you modeling your moustache after any particular style or celebrity?
No, but I plan on people modeling their moustache after mine.

Do you plan on making practical use of your moustache, such as using it for storage?
Not particularly, but you never know what'll get stuck in there.

How's your razor burn doing?
It's fine. I'm used to shaving everyday, so this is a shortcut.
