We've never seen this guy before, but we want to be friends with him now. A local named Handlebar Henry was seen outside of the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood last night—and his mustache-and-beard combo was mighty powerful.

His voluminous brown and gray beard perfectly curled up along the sides of his face, where it was shaped to look like a larger, curly mustache. Handlebar Henry (whose real name is Henry Blanton and hails from Long Beach, Mississippi) donned a trucker hat with his mustache logo as well as a green button-down shirt with leather suspenders (where do you find leather suspenders?).

Pacific Coast News, which snapped the photos, said that Handlebar Henry has made TV appearances in the past showing off his five-foot mustache. We did some digging and couldn't find much more info on him, but have concluded that his beard is impressive.
