The Makool Moustache Comb: tidy those loose whiskers

swl-moustache-comb.jpg

Now here’s a sight we don’t see much these days. It’s a bloke combing his moustache…with a comb!

In fact, have moustaches ever really taken off for young people? I suppose there’s the Justin Timberlake beard/tache combo, and Jonny Depps fine example of a whiskered man but that’s about it for popular influences.

If, however you decide to go the way of the furred lip then you could do worse than the Makool moustache comb, priced at $120.

If the sight of a man combing his beard with a comb is not one of true manliness, then I just don’t know what is. I just don’t.

Now it looks like another may come true thanks to the U.S military because they are developing an exoskeleton that will give the wearer superhuman strength.
