November’s here! And so is the time to celebrate facial hair in all its glory for ‘No-Shave November’ and ‘Movember’! A witty portmanteau of “moustache” and “November”, the term was coined from the idea of growing one’s moustache and beard, beginning November 1st to raise awareness for men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer. The goal – to donate the money you would ideally spend on grooming to cancer research activities.
For those participating in this tradition to truly support the cause, we salute you! And while we are at it, why not support those beards with stylish collars to really pull the look together. Go ahead and sport the coolest combos of the season!
The Goatee with the Club collar
The goatee is a style of beard formed by the hair on the chin, and the Club collar looks super cool with it! The rounded collar tips work well with the smallish beard without pulling too much focus to themselves.
The Extended Goatee with the Madmen collar
Connecting the moustache to the goatee beard became so popular that the style warranted its own name. When paired with the Madmen collar, the width of the cutaway collar allows for the beard to be highlighted, giving the whole look a youthful, fresh vibe.
The Long Stubble with the Polo collar
This classic beard style looks best when paired with a classic button-down collar, whether you dress the look up or down…
The Friendly Mutton Chops with the Ozwald Boateng collar
A beard choice for the brave! Since this style requires some amount of grooming, choose a classy collar like the Ozwald Boateng to suit it.
The Bandholz with the Prince Charlie collar
All you need for this beard style is to flaunt it with confidence – and a classic point collar to go with it. Made famous by British Royalty, the Prince Charlie collar lets the Bandholz shine while holding its own ground against the fullness of the beard.
Movember was started in Melbourne, Australia, in 2003 with two friends who decided to grow and sport moustaches as a way to bring attention to men’s mental health, prostate cancer, and other men related diseases. Through the years, the foundation has grown to include more than 5 million people around the world who grow a moustache through the month of November to support their fellow men.
