gregorovitch / the parking lot outside the ministry of transportation / toronto, canada
i followed this guy halfway across the parking lot, ALL THE WAY INTO HIS CAR.
if that’s not dedication, then i don’t know what is.
haha you can tell i am standing in the frame of the driver’s side door. such a moustache creep.
anyway, i asked him how long it took to grow that thing, but i could barely understand a word that came out of his mouth.
type: a sick handlebar. good for gregorovitch.
tall, dark, and non-fat / starbucks on duddell street / hong kong
it’s hard to say what it was about him that caught my attention first, his fantastic neon ensemble or his moustache.
type: M…for moustache?
confused customer / G.O.D. / hong kong
since spotting this guy at the G.O.D. store in central, i have passed by him numerous times in the area.
on one occasion, he was wearing purple seersucker shorts.
oh, and i actually had to take TWO photos of him because he looked so terrified in the first one. sometimes that happens when i approach strange men and ask them if i can take their photo. haha you can tell he is trying to back away from me…
type: it’s a prickly pyramid!
alex / grappa’s cellar / hong kong
so i was at the andrew bird concert earlier tonight, after which my friend adam told me about “this guy with an amazing moustache” not knowing that i’d already spotted him from across the room hours earlier.
a true moustache hunter’s modar never shuts off.
type: it’s like something out of a jude law/matt damon film…the talented mr. ripley, anyone?
mr. denim cool / cyberport / hong kong
was standing in line at the bus terminus (i love that word) in cyberport (don’t ask) and saw this guy waiting with his friends about eight people away from me.
naturally, i pushed my way to the back of the line where he was, and asked the shy guy if i could snap a picture of him…
…AND HIS MOUSTACHE.
type: hold the ice cream
aseem / volar / hong kong
you know, there i was, standing in the middle of a club, minding my own business, when i spotted him from afar: a vision in neon green, light-up plastic devil ears.
the guy was SO down for being my second 2010 moustache. made my night.
type: it really brings out the green in his horns
nervous honky / causeway bay / hong kong
he’s the first moustached man i’ve approached in 2010 after a weeks-long hiatus.
i was convinced this guy was a tourist because he looked SO lost standing outside this bonjour store and was wearing this heavy-duty knapsack…but nope. local guy.
and i think i made him extremely uncomfortable by asking him if i could photograph his moustache because when i did, his mouth started twitching.
those girls in their bras and panties really complete the picture, no?
type: prickly broom
friendly american / stanley market / hong kong, hong kong
"excuse me, can i take a picture of your moustache?"
"my MOUSTACHE? okay."
it’s a bird…
it’s a plane…
type: it’s a moustache
danny / professor thoms’ bar / new york, new york
well look what i found on my computer! a disposable camera oldie, but a goodie for sure.
so many varieties of crumb catchers on this blog and yet, i’ve neglected the classic finger ‘stache.
type: danny’s finger
glen / the royal garden hotel / kowloon, hong kong
glen works security at the royal garden.
type: middle part
