Lip service

Tulkinghorn extends a hirsute hello to Linklaters corporate partners Charlie Jacobs, Richard Youle and Owen Clay. Normally clean-shaven, you may notice something growing on their top lips in the coming weeks.

The ‘tached trio is raising money to battle prostate cancer for global charity Movember, which encourages men to “grow a mo” during the month of November.

Jacobs is harnessing his inner Tom Selleck, he told Tulkinghorn, while it is still unclear which hairy heroes Youle and Clay are trying to emulate. Might Tulkinghorn suggest either the bold and blond handlebar style as personified by Hulk Hogan, or a more subtle top-lip trimming à la Freddie Mercury?
