An Alliance is formed…
Thoughts of November normally consist of anticipation and excitement of annual festive celebrations, which are then usually squandered by the dreaded thought of your granny presenting you with the tradition winter jumper, which she has spent the last year knitting.
If the above sounds a familiar thought process then fear not Chino fans, November just got cool. ChinoTuesdays have joined allegiance with Movember to support their great cause of raising awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers affecting men.
Like the chino the moustache is often a misjudged and underestimated iconic statement of the men’s fashion world, therefore we are recruiting chino lovers everywhere to join forces with ChinoTuesdays and support a moustache for Movember.
So how does it work I hear you ask,
On the 1st of Movember, with a clean shaven face register at Movember where you need to join the ChinoTuesday society. Once you have completed this step you are now an official MoChino Bro; a prestigious title when teamed with a voluptuous moustache and classic chino – some may say heroic. Then for the rest of Movember groom your moustache to a style which represents you, and seek sponsorship for your ‘Mo-growing efforts.’
Not forgetting the females become a MoChino Sista (I’m not suggesting you skip a month of upper lip bleaching) instead support your MoChino Bro by encouraging them to try and grow a Mo or aiding when they have trimmed to short to produce an obscure angle (not a good look). There is however many other ideas which you can raise money, MoChinoCupCake bake sale, or wear a fake moustache for a period of time.
As usual we want to see your photos, and instead of supporting the humble chino we want to see the moustache! Each week upload your photos to our twitter (@ChinoTuesdays) page or Facebook group, where at the end of the month fans will be able to vote their favourite picture (the picture with the highest number of likes on Facebook). The winner will receive special Chino Tuesday donation to the sponsorship fund, and be crowned MoChino Extraordinaire 2011.
Please do not take this light heartedly as competition is going to be fierce; if you chose to accept the MoChino challenge, it comes with great power and responsibility. You are becoming a walking talking advertisement for Movember and raising money to support cancer research. So this November team your Chino with a spectacular grown and honed moustache and wear both with pride.
Finally remember, a Chino is for Tuesday and a Moustache is for Movember.
