Movember: Polaris Apparel

by singletrackjon 8

The guys from Polaris Apparel have sent us an update on the state of their beard growth for their Movember appeal. They’ve helpfully made a chart of their ‘tache growing heroes and their current hirsute progress…

They’re a scary looking bunch eh?

  1. The following is not meant to antagonise or anything like that but I have one simple question about this whole ‘Movember’ thing: How exactly does growing a moustache promote awareness in men’s health?

    Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache

    – surely changing men’s attitude to food and exercise would be a much more direct way of changing the face of men’s health!

    I’m a man and I’m fully aware of the state of my health without resorting to growing a moustache or beard. I just don’t get it.

  2. @swoosh nobody asks you about your attitudes to food and exercise. A moustache is at least a conversation starter if people aren’t used to seeing a furry growth on your face. If people ask why, you can tell them that prostate cancer is a serious problem.

  3. fair point it is a conversation starter but why not just start a conversation rather than wait for people to ask you about a moustache you’re growing for 1 month of the year?

  4. why do women wear a pink ribbon pinned to their clothes for supporting breast cancer? Same thing. So get down off your pedestal, grow a moustache and harden the fook up

  5. like i said at the start i didnt mean to antagonise it was just a question about something I don’t understand.

    And i promise not to shave between now and the end of November – promise!

  6. @swoosh, have you not heard of Decembeard? It’s no shaving till the end of December now!!! (again this it is an assuie prostate cancer awareness event).

    Well there are at least three Aussies pictured above!

  8. Have you ever tried growing a ‘tache round your prostate gland? Not only would it be uncomfortable, but no-one would be able to see it (under normal circumstances), so the awareness effect would be lost.

    Unless a load of blokes walking bow-legged and scratching their arses could be used to raise awareness…

    I suppose you could do it in August and call it ‘Anugust’. Doesn’t have quite the same ring as ‘Movember’though…
