It’s that time of year again, leaves are falling from the trees, it is definitely colder, and the entire country is amazed by how dark it is after 4 PM.

It’s also the time of year where you’ll spot a lot of men sporting moustaches that range from a coffee stain on their top lip to a Merv Hughes lookalike competition winner 1988. Look him up. It’s worth it. You didn’t look him up, did you? Well, here he is:

What is Movember?

The Movember Foundation was founded in 2003. Since then, it’s become an innovative leader in Men’s health awareness and fundraising. The key event is in November when the aptly named Movember event urges men to grow moustaches and demand money from friends, family, colleagues, customers *ahem* and suppliers for looking ridiculous for a month.

What are we doing? 

Well, as life goes on and things change, it’s important to take the time to check in with colleagues, their wellbeing, and listen to what is going on in the background of their lives. We are raising funds and awareness for all the dads, brothers, sons, colleagues and mates in our lives.

This year, for the first time, Fabric has their very own moustache growing team: Phil, Josh, Max, Greg, Will and Tom!

And don’t follow just because we look magnificent (you mean ridiculous- editor), but because of what it stands for:

Prostate Cancer

Testicular Cancer

Mental Health and Suicide Prevention


It’s not just about men; everyone can get involved, Mo-bros, Mo-sistas, the lot of you. Grow yourself, host an event, go for a run. And if you are fundraising yourself, let us know – we’d love to compare tache’s! Head over to their page and learn all about it.
