Oh my.  I've bookmarked this to show to my fiance later, I'm sure he'll love you for it, he's been talking about waxing his 'stache for a while now.

LOL! My boyfriend was just threatening to grow one of those, but was deterred by the getting it to stick issue. I am definitely NOT telling him about this clever solution.

Oh God! I'll have to make sure my bf doesn't see this. He bought a bunch of mustache wax off of ebay. It contains musk, whatever the heck that is. Good luck with the 'stache!

Yay for Butch (Moustache) Wax!  I can almost never find it in the stores anymore.
My Mom taught me how to tame eyebrows with it so they keep a nice neat arch, and when she had super-short hair in the 90's (Susan Powder-esque!) she used it for stiffening her bangs.  She used to steal it from my Dad while he was in the Marines in the 50's.  It kept his "high and tight" tidy.  We found actual 'Butch-wax' brand like 10 years ago at Wal-mart of all places, and she guards that stash like gold!  Now I can make my own.
It's great stuff, especially when you're going for a 20's or 30's eyebrow look.

I have an unrivalled (at least locally) 'gentleman's moustache' and though I see you are running along the right lines here, believe me, you want to adjust your consistency! I would reccomend - 4 parts beeswax, 2 parts vaseline and 2 parts black and white hair wax (of the Jamaican order). I find the latter gives a firmer curve and a most satisfying tropical fragrance. These, of course, must be blended under heat and here I must bow to the modern 'hairdryer'. Although it is certainly most uneddifying, I do find it helpful to cool and firm my facial hirsuteness by sitting in an armchair with my legs akimbo over the back and my head pointing groundwards until my glory has achieved the correct degree of stiffness. This is something I reccomend you practice in private! Long live the Great British Moustache and Long Live The Queen! (Victoria, of course!) Yours in facial hirsuteness,

I fear I have replied presumptuously, without viewing your facial adornment. Obviously you require some time to achieve the splendour of a true 'Bracket Moustache' (please do not refer to it as anything 'handlebar' as this is a proletarian injunction!). You do, however seem to have the makings of a true 'Gentlemans moustache' and would certainly not snub you in polite society. Good luck with your puruit of the hirsuite!

                                Yours with, indeed, respect,
