I've noticed a lot of cars with them at my college and other mustache accessories too. Usually the hipster kids have them.

I feel like it started before he was in the limelight. I have so many 'freinds' that are now carbon copies of each other. Mustache, slicked back hair, plaid shirt buttoned up to the top. They all try to perpetuate the idea that they are somehow different. It's pretty funny.

Mustache's have been around since men have had facial hair.

How is something that's been around for centuries considered a fad?

It seemed to start with movember. It's like breast cancer month, but for prostate cancer. And instead of wearing pink, you grow a stash.

I'm rockin a stash right now. Makes me look like the love child of Freddy Mercury and Ron Jeremy. Ladies appreciate that it's a power move...of the carnal variety

Finger mustache tattoos are the worst hipster fad yet.

It comes in and out of popularity and it is on its way back in.

I prefer a full beard, but I like a mustache to creep out my wife a bit.

I'm talking about this style I guess, not particularly actual mustaches, but decals, shirts, wallets, ect. with this on them. Nothing wrong with the facial hair thing

The answer is hipsters. Hipsters start stupid things, then claim they are too cool for them later.

ironic mustache
generally adorned by a hipster
an ugly mustache grown initially as a joke and to impress one's friends with the level of commitment necessary to maintain it. these mustaches often remain with the wearer far longer than they are funny and become a part of the person's "look"
