The Rules

It's that time again! Time to get your moustaches growing to raise money to end male depression and other health issues. There's a lot of pressure this year to top 2012's record breaking $33987 raised worldwide! So be sure to sign up and help us do some good.

Since we started in 2009, the Art Of Manliness community has raised over $122,000. This money has been put to good use towards a plethora of wonderful charities (check them out!). 


To participate, just go to movember.com, sign up and join one of our AoM teams, and start collecting donations as you grow that fantastic Mo:

Once you're signed up, you'll just need to follow a few ground rules, and then you're good to mo!

1. Once registered, each Mo Bro must start November 1st with a clean-shaven face
2. For the entire month of November, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache according to these rules:
- There is to be no joining of the Mo at the sideburns - that's a beard
- There is to be no joining of the handlebars at the chin - that's a goatee
- A small complimentary growth under the chin is allowed (aka the Tickler)


If you don't want to grow a mo, but want to do something to help, feel free to donate to the AoM Movember Team!

Watch this space for great giveaways and Mo-gress updates as the facial hair mounts up!

Don't forget, you can now follow our Mo-bros on Twitter at http://twitter.com/artofmanliness/aom-movember-team

Not seeing a lot of action in here but the AoM USA group seems to be doing well. We could do with a serious boost in the UK http://uk.movember.com/team/1068865

Comment by Shaun Daws on November 10, 2013 at 3:14pm

It ebbs and flows...if history's any indication, the UK team will surge near the end of the month...keep at it!

Comment by Samuel Chapman on November 10, 2013 at 2:55pm

The UK group hasn't set the world alight yet. It's hard trying to find sponsorship.

Comment by Shaun Daws on November 7, 2013 at 6:05pm

Team US, with 345 members, has earned $6051 and is placed 60 for their region


Team Australia, with 10 members, has earned $497 and is placed 1679 for their region
Team Canada, with 31 members, has earned $1271 and is placed 797 for their region


Team UK, with 8 members, has earned £95 and is placed 5046 for their region

Our top 3 Mo-Bros are:

SCOTT WEGENER from the USA team with $675

BEERLY AWAKE from the USA team with $350

DAN ROY from the Canadian team with $270

We've raised $7914 ($130685 since 2009)! Woohoo!

Gentlemen, start your moustaches! http://www.artofmanliness.com/2013/10/25/movember-2013-fighting-pro...

I've added a Mogress forum again for this year (above), so let's see those clean-shaven faces!

Best of luck, everyone, let's destroy last year's record!

Comment by Shaun Daws on October 15, 2013 at 5:31am

Hey guys, guess what? We're doing it all again this year! 

The official announcement is just around the corner, but because you guys are extra awesome, you get a chance to get a leg up and get started right away!

I've posted links to the new team pages in the Rules section (above). Feel free to join up and get mo-ing!

Comment by Shaun Daws on November 5, 2012 at 4:01pm

Of course you can join, but only because your last name is Barber ;)

Comment by Philip Barber on November 5, 2012 at 12:44pm
Hey there chaps,

I'm a bit late to the game, but I hope you'll still accept me into this masculine cadre of tufted upper lips. I just shaved yesterday: we'll just call it an extra challenge to grow that mo' just as robust as the rest.

Man Crushes and the Difference between being Homo

Yeah. I was wondering about this. I shall freely admit on this forum that I have had some let's say unusual feelings occasionally towards other men. I know for a fact that I am a 100% bona fide, straight as a heterosexual arrow kind of guy. And yet...sometimes I get these feelings. I would almost describe them as…See More
