These Guys Are Winning Movember With Their Incredibly Debonair Handlebar Moustaches

If you've ever considered spicing up your look with a handlebar mustache, head to the U.K. and join The Handlebar Club.

Founded in 1947, the British club's only qualification is having a "hirsute appendage of the upper lip, with graspable extremities," according to its website. In addition to having some really cool and well-groomed facial hair, club members raise money for charities, mostly ones devoted to ex-servicemen and children.

Technically there are no beards allowed in The Handlebar Club, but club Secretary Steve Parsons told The Huffington Post that they are very fond of their bearded friends.

"We are not anti-beard, just pro-moustache," he said. "We are a moustache club and proud of it, the oldest in the world in fact. But we do have a lot of bearded friends and have a category of membership called Friend of the Handlebar Club, which is open to both our bearded and clean-shaven pals."

The Handlebar Club was recently photographed in London, England, just in time for Movember. If you're unfamiliar with it, Movember takes place in the month of November and asks men to grow out their moustaches for 30 days to raise awareness of men's health issues.
