City Movember efforts – just 10 days to grow

WELL DONE to all the brave Movemberers who’ve battled through those awkward early days of growing a moustache (“do you think he’s doing Movember?” “Is that just a shadow?”) and made it into the third week of sporting career-limiting upper lip fuzz.

To celebrate the fact that there’s just 10 days to go – and remind you that there’s light at the end of the tunnel (e.g. prizes) – today The Capitalist is celebrating your efforts so far, complete with embarrassing pictures.

Special mention goes to the huge team of Investec staff – dubbed the MoZebras – who have been putting their best lip forward in the name of healthy competition to raise more than £10,000 so far. But today’s golden moustache goes to Majedie Asset Management’s Rob De La Mare, as much for his harrowing tale of growing a moustache as for the results.

“I’ve already started getting dodgy looks, and no one will sit next to me on the train,” Rob says – though hopefully all that will change when he achieves the “Tom Selleck look” he’s been aiming for.

Fingers crossed Rob – and let us know how it’s g-rowing.
