Upturned Mustache

This is a facial hair style that certainly can fallen in popularity and is very unusual to see these days. This is the upturned mustache, where the ends are combed/trained to point upwards. I would imagine this would require quiet a bit of grooming work to keep it styled like this, and hence possibly the reason the the fall in popularity over the last 100 years.


  1. A young Salvador Dali, perhaps?

  2. It would take a lot of vanity, not to say ego, for a man to wear a mustache like this. Probably even a servant to keep it in good trim! This fellow's suit looks expensive, as does his hair style, silk tie, and his facial expression. He's handsome indeed, and pleased with that fact. From the shirt collar, I'm guessing around 1900 to 1920, the time period you've pegged it, PJM. I think the whole style is one very few men can afford these days, one way or another.
