When you think of Jess Mariano, you probably picture this dreamboat, circa 2004.

Since then, the man behind Jess, Milo Ventimiglia, has grown — if you can believe it — into an even bigger dreamboat.

Last month, he was spotted with a full beard and much longer hair, and we were like YES, SIGN US UP.

And then earlier today he was spotted…kinda looking like he just got off a steam train in the 1800s after coming out West in search of gold.

It’s that mustache. It is 100% that mustache. THAT MUSTACHE. Honestly, he kinda looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character, Robert Todd Lincoln (you know, Abraham Lincoln’s son), from the movie, Lincoln.

This resemblance is something we can never un-see. But let’s be real for a sec: He still looks pretty perfect, especially sitting next to Disney Princess Mandy Moore (the two star together in the upcoming NBC fall show, This Is Us).

Raise your hand if this ~New Jess~ is a little bit shocking, but you’re into it at the same time.

The Gilmore Girls revival is already done shooting, so no, don’t fret, Jess will NOT have this mustache during A Year in the Life. There’s a very high chance that he could have it for This Is Us, which is in the middle of production right now.

Old-timey mustache or no old-timey mustache, we still love Ventimiglia no matter what. Always and forever.
