With the release of Evil Urges, My Morning Jacket's Jim James made the switch from a full beard to a mustache, inducting him into an exclusive club that features members like John Oates, Freddie Mercury, the Killers' Brandon Flowers and the Sgt. Pepper's-era Beatles. So it was only natural that the American Mustache Institute would want to interview James to discuss his new facial hair look. "I have always been a fan of the wisdom and power of the mustache," James said. "Having only a mustache is a feeling unlike any other. A feeling of deep pride and sophistication." James said his father (who "will always rock the 'stache till his dying day"), James Brown and his desire to look like "a top rate T-ball coach" were all inspirations for his new look. James even offers some grooming advice: "I feel every man looks best with his god-given facial hair, as long as it's not a beard with no mustache. The 'stache must be present at all times."
