You will notice in coming weeks a groundswell of moustaches developing this month – be it you co-worker, neighbour, partner or strangers walking down the street – of varying degrees of style and tastefulness.
But it’s all for a good cause, with the Movember Foundation celebrating its 11th anniversary this year, raising awareness for prostate cancer and depression in men.

James Edwards, a three-time NBA champion with the Pistons and Bulls, got a start for his handlebar, as did bespectacled Lakers stalwart Kurt Rambis for his slug.

Long-serving NBA commissioner David Stern and Celtics legend Larry Bird received mentions for their solid 1980s efforts, and David Robinson’s ever-present thin moustache got a worthy call-up.
