Been growing my mustache since February (about 4 months of growth). It can cover my whole mouth.

Here is what it looks like combed down

Here it is parted to the side (no mustache wax)

This was my mustache when it was trimmed to the lip line

It’s getting harder and harder to eat - esp sandwiches and eggs.

Is it time for a trim?
I’m thinking either a maintenance trim or to trim it where my top lip meets the bottom lip. This way it is more manageable to eat.

What do you guys think?

I am going to move this post to the Mustache-related topics and general questions forum. The Mustaches forum is for guys sporting primarily solo moustaches.

Only you can really answer your question of to trim or not to trim, but I will say that I enjoy wearing my own moustache both longer and shorter. And the best part is that it always grows back...

As to eating and drinking, check this thread:tips-and-techniques-for-eating-and-drinking-t34303.html
Stop trimming your moustache; greater glory awaits...
but if you are going to trim, do it right, go pencil...
then, of course, a nice copstache can be cool too...

It is totally up to you, but I like the look of your longer mustache to the sides.  Your trimmed mustache is narrow, and the the longer style makes it look much fuller.

I wouldn't trim it, if you havent. It looks good trained to the side. I would maybe try a very small round brush to curl it under and to the sides.
