GQ magazine editor Dylan Jones sparked controversy this week by announcing that moustaches are 'the must-have fashion accessory of the year'.

Explaining the editor's somewhat surprising assertions, GQ deputy editor Bill Prince said that most men fantasise about facial hair, claiming "all of us secretly toy with the idea of growing a moustache- what it would look like and how it would feel." (Telegraph).

"It would help if an icon like David Beckham grew one."
