Having reached the mid-point of Movember—the month during which men all over the world grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for important men’s health issues—we thought we’d offer some ‘stache-strengthening inspiration from a pro-grower, comedian Nick Offerman, above. So hang in there, gentlemen—and keep on cultivating, even in the face of humble stubble patterns.
Read on to see how some of our colleagues here at Nordstrom HQ are doing their part this Movember.
Eric Yanez, Rail Buyer // ‘Stache Style: “The Caterpillar”
Brian Ottesen, Project Lead // ‘Stache Style: “Good ol’ Handlebar”
Kellen Harris, Product Coordination // ‘Stache Style: “The Ghost”
Ryan Sharp, Tailored Clothing Buyer // ‘Stache Style: “The Sharpstache”
Galen Driver, Product Coordination // ‘Stache Style: “The Intellectual”

David Bishop, Tailored & Designer Buyer // ‘Stache Style: “Jr.”
Yaro Levkiv, Site Merchandising // ‘Stache Style: “East Bloc”
AND THE WINNER SO FAR IS: Brian. Not that there are winners and losers here—but take a closer look at that epic handlebar. The truth, if you’re jealous, is that he started his Mo’ a month early. “Some would call that cheating,” he says, “but I call it dedication to a great cause and a sweet ‘stache.” This marks Brian’s second year participating in Movember. “Last year, I turned it into a competition: If I raised $1,000, I would keep my moustache through December, and the person with the largest donation got to pick the style. I ended up raising over $1,200. This year, my goal is $2,500.”
Kudos to Brian, his stiff upper lip, our other brave Mo’ growers, and all
of you cultivating facial hair for a good cause at home.
…And support the movement even further with Movember-themed merch.

PRO TIP: To keep your ‘stache looking sharp, you’ll need to keep the area around it clean-shaven. Get the right razor for the job here, and when it comes to lathering up, we can help—with our FREE SHAVE SWAP program. Through 11/27, bring an empty shaving-cream container to any Nordstrom store, and we’ll hook you up with a new sample-size shave product from Lab Series, Jack Black, The Art of Shaving, or Kiehl’s—FREE.
