Each November countless of my friends sacrifice their faces for the wonders of a finely honed ‘tache. As we all know by now it’s not just a sartorial statement but a great way to raise much needed funds for some excellent Men’s health charities. This year I won’t be joining in the fun. For two reasons, having run a marathon in April I believe I have made my self-sacrifice target for the year. That and as any of my twitter followers will attest the hyperbolic reaction I had to accidentally removing my beard does not stand me in good stead for this challenge.
As Movember continues to grow more and more brands and companies are getting on board. One of these is the very lovely Penhaligons, who have pitched a tent (so to speak) in central London and are offering the very fine MoBros a complimentary ‘tache trim. Penhaligons are perfumers to the royalty so should you darken the doors you’ll be in very fine company indeed. The pop up will take place in their Covent Garden Store (41 Wellington St) and you need to book in advance by either click through here or contacting them directly on 0203 0406120.
So this doesn’t help much if you’re in London, but I will certainly be cheering on your very valiant efforts. I’m looking forward to the now annual mo’ invasion on profile pics of friends and randoms across facebook and twitter. As well as the ever recurring question..is he doing this for charity or as personal style.
Whatever mo you end up rocking from the Tom or the Burt, to the wilder Fu Man Choo, Einstein or not so ethical Adolf, they will all at some point need some loving. So if you are in London and you can make it to the store I would definitely recommend it. And whilst you are there check out their great range of scents for men and women. Guaranteed Christmas wins for almost all the family are to be found amongst their more refined perfumes. Hey the Queen and family cant be wrong.
If you aren’t rocking the Mo this Movember the least you can do is support the great guys that are. A selection of whom are to be found below!Click through and raise some cash for some inspiring charities!
Oh and while you’re at it…actually no not literally while you’re at it as you may be at work or in public and that could be indecent/illegal. Educate yourself and have a place appropriate feel to make sure everything downstairs is as it should be.
