If you thought that we were going overboard on this whole Movember thing, and we are because we take men’s health that seriously, then take a skip across the pond to where the American Mustache Institute have conducted a study into moustached men’s money matters compared to their bearded and clean-shaven brethren.

The study was taken during the first six months of 2009, polling 2,000 men with moustaches, 2,000 men with beards and 2,000 shaven men.

From this came a report titled: “Saving and Spending Patterns of Mustached Americans,” which showed moustached men make 8.2 percent more than guy’s with beards and 4.3 percent more than those who are clean-shaven.

On the downside the study found that men with moustaches spend 11 percent more and save 3 percent less than their facial hair-less peers. But that’s probably got to do with being awesome and all the dates a moustachiod man goes on, right?

So before you reach for the clippers come December 1 remember this, as well as the fact that men with moustaches are more likely to get hired at job interviews, Reuters reported.
