Jack's back with his 12th yeard journey update, and he's finally going to talk about his mustache gap. Yes - the gap in the middle of his mustache that everyone comments about on Youtube.

Becoming comfortable with yourself is totally important - be it beard patches, a mustache gap, a curly beard, a straight beard, your body size - the things that are out of your control are important to own and accept so you can be confident in who you are.
