Introducing the highly sought after accolade and great honor for a Mo Bro…drum roll please.

International Man of Movember 2014
As the newly crowned Men of Movember from Gala Partés held around the world begin to soak in their newly found fame, we would like to take a moment to praise the man of all men, our 2014 International Man of Movember, James Forsythe.
"I feel immensely proud and humbled to be awarded this accolade. I have taken part in Movember for the past three years and thankfully over those years, donations have grown as well as Mo's. Family and friends rarely see my baby face, this has been a massive conversation starter and has been my way of promoting men's health."
Although we crown a group of admirable costumed, moustachioed men at our annual Gala Partés, the Handlebar Moustache Club UK, an international association of Mo aficionados, must make the tough decision of choosing the one Mo that tops them all. The competition is steep, and extremely varied, with eligible candidates hailing from Europe to Hong Kong and New Zealand to Ireland and countries in between, and alas James was the victor.

James’ facial follicles shared Movember’s message loudly and proudly through the streets of his hometown Cardiff, Wales in the United Kingdom. He led his team, Boys to Mann, with the experience and class you’d expect of a third year Mo Bro; a captain hell-bent on raising awareness throughout our favourite month of the year. Just take a look at James’ motivation for participating:
“The one thing I know I can do well is grow amazing facial hair. The fact that I can eventually bring my stunning Bronsonesque Mo to the party for charity, and bring attention to the wonderful causes that Movember provides and supports makes it even better.”
Good on ya, James. You’re a gentleman, a truly Mo-riffic ambassador who embodies the spirit of our cause.

To show our appreciation for his efforts and to be reminded of good times, James will proudly wear a customised Movember 2014 Pontos S Diver from elite watchmaker Maurice Lacroix.
A hearty congratulations again and we hope to see James back in the running in 2015.
