Movember is the new November. To signal our support for the Movember mission, we hereby present our gallery of top ten classical moustaches from The Strad archives. With over a hundred years of magazines to choose from there were rich pickings to be had – at least enough for the next decade of Movembers to come.

Movember is a registered charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness of men’s health issues. To find out more about the Movember Foundation visit
