Chris Manley has been grooming his moustache for the past year and a half.

I met him on the E train to Manhattan. I asked if I could take his picture and we had an interesting conversation about all the different people who try to take "sneaky" candid shots of him daily.

He also told me about the New York Beard and Moustache Championships, which took place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at the weekend.
