What Are America’s Most Mustache-Friendly Cities?

You know a question that doesn’t get asked often enough today: What are the best cities for young people who want to grow mustaches? No, seriously. Some urban environments are decidedly more facial hair-friendly than others, so if that’s something that’s important to you, then you’ve got to educate yourself. To help you out, we’ve got the findings from the American Mustache Institute’s most recent study after the jump, along with some inspiring images of the gents who already call these mustache-friendly cities home. Let us know in the comments if you’re surprised where your hometown landed in the top 10 — or, if you can’t believe that it didn’t even make the list (we’re looking at you Seattle and San Francisco).
