In the Mo-ment: Made + Remade Kicks Off Movember

Made + Remade Movember team member Rich Lee prepares for a shave by master barber Marcus Blair at Roosters Men’s Grooming in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Made + Remade celebrates MovemberIt’s happened to you. You’re in the produce department, or dining out, or standing in line for movie tickets and you see … it. Or him, rather. A gentleman sporting a mustache and not even a fully-grown one at that without a shred of hipster irony.

Sure, you might be able to rattle off 10 guys who could pull off a mustache, but there are only two in recent history for me: Burt and Tom, whose mustaches were so cool I don’t even have to say their last names.

Me?

Yes, I’ve looked like this before, and I love my movies, music and beer well-crafted, but I’ve never tried to express myself through facial hair.

Until today. A magnificent seven of us from Made + Remade and Scripps Networks have assembled a Movember team to raise awareness for men’s health concerns. Here’s the skinny: All of us start today, November 1, clean-shaven and then grow a mustache through the entire month. Our goals? Conspicuous and ubiquitous mustaches that start conversations about men’s health issues including prostate and testicular cancer.

Rich Lee and I got a head start on Movember Eve at our local Roosters Men’s Grooming, where master barber Marcus Blair generously donated his time and compensation on behalf of Movember. Take a look.

Here I am, all lathered up and ready for my close shave, and my close-up.

Come back to Made + Remade during the month of Movember for fun updates on our team’s progress and to learn about the fine art of shaving, homemade grooming products and much more. You can also follow us at #maderemade.

    Hey! I would kill to grow handlebars, but I can't grow any hair on the sides of my mouth, but my 'stache is finally starting to come around almost 20 days in – final pics forthcoming …

    Is one month long enough to grow some serious facial hair? I want to see some handlebars so can you go for 3 months?
