Mustaches have been around in America since the Pilgrims landed here hundreds of years ago.

It is common knowledge that many of the earliest settlers that were considered the best fishermen, were also the best at growing a mustache.

Regardless of how awesome and popular a young man becomes when he is first able to muster up a manly mustache these days, mustaches have not always been as hip and cool as they are today.

In fact, there were many phases in American history where men wearing mustaches were shunned, mocked, and even fired from their job.

Which is exactly why we are presenting the Top 5 Jobs that embrace Mustaches (for men or women), so that you can excel, win friends and influence people, and become a legend with your stache.

But first…

  • Burt Reynolds in the 1970’s
  • Tom Selleck in the 1980’s
