    Typical of a man who was born & lived in south-Bavaria/north Austria at the turn of the 20th C., Hitler wore a large, showy moustache.  As WWI began, his was trimmed in a "W", or "Kaiser Wilhelm" variant of the "Imperial" style.  As use of poison gas began in 1915, his battalion commander ordered troops to trim their  moustaches: A bushy moustache wouldn't allow a tight fit of a gas mask.  So Hitler adopted the "toothbrush" style that 1st became popular in the U.S. in the late 19th C.  The style reached maximum popularity between WWI & WWII, & was worn by such people as Oliver Hardy & one Fred Trump Sr.  

    Hitler kept the style post WWI to identify himself as a veteran.

    Check his WWI pictures.  He had quite the moustache then!  He actually toned it down a lot for his famous one.

    It was real and he was quite proud of it.

    During WWI, Hitler had a bushy mustache, however, it interfered with his gas mask in the trenches, so he scaled it back to the one we all became familiar with.

    Adolf Hitler's moustache was a real moustache, he did not glue it on.
