Where it started...
Jan van Riebeeck (aka The Hairy Lip from Holland) tried to draw attention away from his terrible hair by growing a moustache that made a comeback amongst traffic cops in the 1970s.
Bank robber Andre Stander probably grew a moustache to blend into 70s South Africa (or maybe to pass as Magnum PI?). He was without the upper lip fuzz when he finally got caught. Coincidence? We think not.
