Did you know that those slivers of fur on men’s upper lips, those fuzzy-wuzzies called mustaches, actually have names? Like pets. I recently came across this Voila display of the little demons and was interested to learn that Hitler’s sliver of a stash was somewhere between the Mouche and Chaplin. Then there is the Dandy in two styles and the Flynn, which looks suspiciously like two mating mice.
