Teddy Roosevelt

One of only four US presidents with standalone moustaches (you’ll meet another further on in this list), Roosevelt’s bristle was prodigious, the perfect size and shape for riding a bull moose through the water. Just our opinion, of course.

Kaiser Wilhelm I

While we admit that the muttonchops on the first German emperor don’t hurt the picture, we can’t help but be amazed by the sheer horizontal power of his moustache. Especially in contrast to that shiny head of his. Additional points go to him for having Otto Von Bismarck, another well-mustachioed fellow, as his right hand man.

Genghis Khan

Of course, we don’t have any actual pictures of the Mongol leader, but if this one is anything close to accurate, his moustache was pretty hardcore.

Pancho Villa

That thick ‘stache with the subtle, expertly twirled ends could only belong to Pancho VIlla. There’s nothing all that, er, revolutionary about it, but it does sort of make us want to follow him.

Joshua Chamberlain

The Civil War had a formidable collection of excellent facial hair, but we love Josh Chamberlain’s sloppy-yet-dignified mop. It just screams post-battle tea time.

Walter Cronkite

The man who proved that moustaches are indeed trustworthy.

Wyatt Earp

Everyone’s favorite Old West lawman also sports everyone’s favorite Old West moustache, which impresses with both length and thickness. After all, you can’t take down outlaws at the O.K. Corral (and come out totally unscathed) with a baby face. No sir.

William Taft

If this picture can be believed, Taft’s moustache went grey well before his head, which is impressive enough on its own, but the President also managed to maintain an excellent shape not equalled by any other president. At least, not yet.

Salvador Dali

Okay, okay, so he’s not exactly the same kind of historical figure as the rest of the gents on this list — but making a list of great moustaches sans Dali? Now that would be surreal.

hahaha!  one of the best reads i've had in months.  so, so, so witty.

with or without a mustache, if the author is male (or female, and so what if she has a mustache; there's always a circus in town), i'd go to great lengths to pin a mustache on his/her face to show my appreciation for his/her great writing.

hey, lorenz, time to grow one! :)
