There is no end to the list of geometric, architectural and sculptural possibilities when you’ve got some facial hair and a tin of Brooklyn Grooming Mustache Wax.
There’s the classic handlebar, worn by men of distinction throughout history from President William H.Taft to Panama Jack. The Dali, the Fu Manchu, the Chin Puff, the list goes on.
The point is, if you can dream it, it’s possible.
Castor oil and kukui nut oil condition your sub-nasal caterpillar while beeswax gives it supple hold and pliability. If you’re new to mustache wax—and this is the best place to start—you may be surprised by its firm, thick, gummy texture. It’s basically mustache glue.
But hey, as you know, the hair of the ‘stache is probably the hardest, most bristly hair on the face—maybe the whole body. So even with the stiffened hold of the mustache wax, you may have to spend time “training” the hair to bend and curl and defy gravity. Don’t hesitate to apply heat from a blow dryer to encourage uniform shaping.

What Does Commando Smell Like?
Commando is the name given to our fragrance-free line of high-quality grooming products. The only smell will be those of the natural oils, waxes and butters with no added essences.
Why name a scent Commando?
Many people desire products that are purely functional without the addition of fragrances. Some simply do not want their "product" competing aromatically with their favorite colognes and perfumes. Ever conscious of the needs, wants and desires of our customers, we decided to create fragrance-free versions of all our grooming products.
"To Go Commando" (aka free-balling) is an idiomatic phrase signifying the act of not wearing underwear. We were having trouble coming up with a name for our unscented line since our core fragrances are all based on and named for historic Brooklyn neighborhoods. No neighborhood would have been flattered to be the namesake of the blank scent, so we challenged friend-to-the-brand Jim Chu with the task of naming the unscented line. In only seconds he exclaimed "I've got it! Go commando!" And thus our Commando line was born.
The name was perfect because going without underwear is what you do when you want to be unencumbered and free from restraint, but you still have to cover up your body with clothes to step out into the world. So in these products expect everything necessary to perform their specific respective functions, but with nothing extra getting in the way or cramping your style.
