His distinct style was pretty unique as far as I can tell. Other than Charlie Chaplin, (who seemed to have adopted it before Hitler), I haven’t seen too many other examples of this style.
Was it a popular look at the time of Hitler’s reign? (I guess I’m asking about Germany… I’m theorizing outside of Germany it wasn’t popular for obvious reasons) Or was it considered bad taste to copy his “look”? I seem to remember from one picture in a book I read a long time ago that one of his inner circle had a similar style, but not nearly as distinct as Hitler’s. (sorry, no cite)
And a follow-up of sorts. Was it common when Chaplin was popular, or did it never catch on? And has anyone ever seen someone sporting the Hitler mustache in his/her lifetime? I mean, as far as styles go, I guess losing this one wasn’t much of a loss, but can anyone sport one now without automatically receiving strange stares?
