LEE Pavlov hasn't shaved off his moustache for two decades.

So although he isn't starting from scratch growing a mo this month, Mr Pavlov is joining millions of other men across Australia who will grow out their whiskers for Movember.

Wife Tracey said her husband absolutely loved his facial hair.

"We got married four weeks ago and Lee wouldn't shave it off," she laughed.

"It pokes me in the face when I kiss him."

The couple admitted Lee hated shaving.

"I started growing it when I was 18. I don't know if it's dedication or laziness," he said.

"My 21-year-old daughter has never seen me without a beard."

He has had a lot of practice keeping his mo under control.

"It gets in your lips and in your feed so the mo has to be trimmed," he said.

Are you growing a mo for Movember? We want to hear from you.
