Earlier this month we announced our Show Your Mo’ contest: Take a picture of your Movember stache, upload it to Twitter or Instagram with hashtag #Zennimo and get entered to win Amazon gift cards. The grand prize winner gets a $300 Amazon card while three other lucky winners get a $100 card.
Just in time for the holidays, too!
We’ve got some excellent entries so far, and we wanted to show them to you:
These Zenni frames are rocking that stache. Who knew that Ron Burgundy wore glasses when not on camera?
I dare you to walk up to this lady and say “That’s nacho mustache!”
Or maybe not.
This may be my favorite of the bunch. A perfectly executed tiny stache!
This fellow appears to be wearing a hoodie, but it is so easy to imagine him in a red velvet smoking jacket. Carry on.
While Show Your Mo’ is all in good fun, Movember is about men’s health and that is a very serious issue indeed. Movember is all about getting men to change their appearance for one month so that everyone can change the way they think about men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Learn more about Movember and men’s health at the Movember Foundation website and send us a picture of you rocking your mustache and glasses!

November is Movember, a time to raise awareness of men’s health! Here at Zenni, we want to celebrate Movember with two promotions:
- Show us your ‘stache on Instagram and Twitter with hashtag #zennimo and you can win the grand prize of a $300 Amazon card or one of three $100 Amazon gift cards.
- Every time you use the hashtag, we donate $5 to The Movember Foundation. We have a goal of donating $10,000, and we hope you’ll help us reach it!
Need some inspiration? Check out these iconic staches:
Tom Selleck as Magnum P.I.
Magnum P.I. not only needed to look cool, he also had to protect his eyes from the sun. These aviators in brown alloy with an amber tint give you plenty of sun protection while going just so with your Hawaiian shirt.
Anthony Edwards as “Goose” in Top Gun
While Goose came to a sad end in Top Gun, we can take comfort in the fact that his alter ego went on to an illustrious career in emergency medicine. His sunglasses were aviators, naturally, and these silver frames blue lenses will take you from aircraft carrier to medical center (and everywhere else) in style.
Nobody had pipes like Freddy and nobody has ever captured his incredible style. Here we have a pair of titanium aviators (it seems to be a thing with mustachioed men), but with an extra bar over the nose. Add some blue tinted lenses for a serious rock and roll look.
Burt Reynolds was mega, mega man in the 70s and nobody wore a stache like him: On the rare occasions when he appeared clean-shaven, something always seemed off. To capture his look, try these black aviators with a yellow tint.

Hopefully you are getting settled into fall and appreciating some cooler weather and colorful foliage. We’re doing the same here at Zenni, at least when we aren’t planning fun stuff like our Halloween costume contest! We’re also getting raves about our fall frames, so we decided to share a few more with you:
Here’s a pair for the men: Half-frame Clubmaster-style rectangles combine gold wire and tortoiseshell for a professional look that’ll still get you noticed at happy hour.
Here’s a pair of cat-eye frames with a wee twist: Instead of smooth, swooping curves, these frames incorporate some straight lines and subtle angles. Perfect for making an impression at work or in the classroom. The black/silver combo also signals that you mean business.
Here’s a very different sort of cat-eye frame: Blue with tortoise markings. While I don’t think there are any cat breeds that actually match this description, the frames themselves are beautiful. Try pairing these with gray or navy clothing for a stunning look.
This fall appears to be the season of the cat-eye: Here’s a classic, elegant pair of cat-eyes with thinner rims that frame your eyes beautifully. Notice the dark, dark blue of these frames: I’d pair these with black clothing for a subtle, elegant contrast.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at Zenni want to do our part to help find a cure. That’s why we’re promoting Zenni Pink, incredibly cute pink and pink-and-black frames that’ll turn heads wherever you go. Even better, we’ll donate $1 for every pair we sell through October to either the Susan G. Komen or $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation!
Have a look at these awesome Zenni frames:
First up is this pair of pink wayfarers: Classic styling with silver ornamentation, but the color is decidedly pink. Pair with black or gray clothing for maximum impact.
This is basically the same pair, except with a larger frame that offers a wee bit more coverage. Try these as sunglasses…and yes, you do need sunglasses in fall and winter. Remember the glare from the snow? Also, these pink glasses frames will look HOT when you’re sporting your summer tan.
I confess that these remind me of the new wave fashion so popular back in the 80s: From the front, these look like typical black wayfarers, but they contain a special surprise: They’re pink on the inside! Awesome to wear anytime, but will look particularly great for a night of clubbing.
As with the pink frames above, we also offer this pink-and-black look in a larger size. These offer a bit more coverage, which some people prefer. These also look incredibly cool as sunglasses.
Looking for other styles? Zenni offers a full range of frames in many different colors, including pink! Check out our site to see all that we have to offer and show your concern for breast cancer research by going pink this October.
