Mo Vines

Look what our friends at Vineyard Vines — one of the honchos there is a Baltimore boy Will Lanahan — are selling to raise awareness for men’s health and Movember!

Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of mustaches during November to raise awareness of men‘s health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event.

A group of guys at Vineyard Vines have organized Team Mo Vines and the company has designed a tie to honor the mustachioed men’s efforts.  One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the ties will go to team Mo Vines in support of men’s health. Go Team Mo Vies!

After

Sporting a solo mustache is a fairly passé fashion statement, at least in this part of the world. But right now, you may see more mustachioed men than usual—especially if you walk the halls of Gilman’s Upper School. But you’ll need to look fast, because in a few days the clean-shaven norm will again dominate among faculty members at the school.

So, what’s up with the mustaches? It’s Movember, an initiative started in Australia back in 2003 with just a few dozen men who wanted to raise awareness about and funds for men’s health, particularly prostate and testicular cancer. Now it’s a global effort taking place in several countries; in 2011 it raised $126.3 million for the cause—and an untold number of eyebrows.

Hampden made the list of the 20 Hippest Neighborhoods in America, along with places like Silver Lake in Los Angeles (which took the number one spot), East Austin, Texas and Williamsburg in Brooklyn.  The criteria? Walkability, coffee shops per capita, the assortment of local food trucks (The Gathering happened in Hampden just last night!), the number of locally owned bars and restaurants and the percentage of residents working in the arts.

Here’s what the editors at Forbes had to say about Hampden:

15. Hampden, Baltimore, MD

Home to the annual “Hon Fest,” where women tease their hair in 1960s-style beehives, Hampden embodies retro cool. Bars, restaurants and independent coffee houses co-mingle with two-story rowhouses harking back to the neighborhood’s days of mills and factories. Every year the neighborhood celebrates Christmas with a “Miracle on 34th Street” decoration spectacle in which residents adorn their abodes with thousands of lights.
