Classic FM Drive with Sam Pittis 5pm - 7pm
It's Movember and thousands are growing facial hair for men's health charities. But what style to go for? We say forget handlebars or pencils: there is only one 'tache that suits one and all, and it's Edward Elgar's.
Handsome, timeless style, popular the world over - a true national treasure. Yes, it's Elgar's moustache - modelled here by actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
We believe that once the Barcelona forward and footballing superstar heard that Elgar wrote a football chant, he could not rest until he recreated the Edwardian's classic pastoral pose.
This is one that will drive the Directioner's wild. The Mo and hat, that's what makes you beautiful.
It seems the irrevent pop star heard about the English composer's 'Bangerz' tour of 1908. A very good one that.
That mo, that quiff. Effortlessly elegant.
The actor has recently turned 40 and has really grown into the waistcoat tweed and cookie duster.
The American astrophysicist has a mind-blowing new look.
Number 10's resident feline shows us that it's a moustache that gives you true authority in a house of power.
Another great football figure, with a touch of Edwardian distinction. Come on Arsene, give us a cello concerto.
The US President definitely pulls off this mo off with a beaming smile. He just needs to work on that British stiff upper lip.
