    Golden Era Things You've Revived Or Repaired For Use

    What methods do you find work best for rust removal? I've tended to use steel wool, but it's laborious and leaves me wondering how deep it reaches into the texture if the cast iron.

    What do you use to shave?

    Pretty regularly. I actually started shaving my head with my straights, but when I was in a stage show, I didn't want to risk getting a nick, so I switched to using my 67 Gillette and found I could get a much smoother shave in about half the time. At the current moment, I'm letting my sparse...

    I remember when I got my first panama, I was self conscious because I almost never saw anyone wearing them. Right after I got it, we took a trip to Disneyland and all of a sudden I saw them everywhere! Now I pretty much wear my panamas constantly throughout the summer months without a care in...

    Super cool! Start looking through hat photos from the teens! You're one step closer to being able to time travel!

    Hey everybody! I'm not actually new here, but I've been gone a long time and decided to change my handle upon returning to the forum. If anyone remembers me, I went by Shadomega before. I had created that name back in my 20's as an anime inspired handle, but I haven't really watched anime in...

    Post New Hats Here!

    I'm in a local stage show where I get to feature two of my vintage hats. First is my Stetson Sovereign, which has been my main lid for years, but at the end of the show, from seemingly nowhere, I produce this beauty of a Young's opera topper which I just picked up. Overall it's in very nice...

    Actually, during the summer, Portland can get rather humid. But I will add that New York humidity is certainly worse. Portland is a very damp area of the state, so when it warms up it can be difficult to get comfortable short of air conditioning. Even at 80-90 degrees, it can be stifling...

    Portland Oregon in June could still have rain, although we've been having drier weather statewide the last couple years. I would go with the felt for there if you can only take one hat with you.

    Great to hear!

    What do you use to shave?

    That's more like it, although I would have my reservations about the Nivea shave cream. It is extremely difficult if not impossible to get a decent lather without a brush, even from top quality shave soaps or creams in a tube. Don't try to use anything from an aerosol can with any form of wet...

    What do you use to shave?

    Just to toss this out there. If you're just trying to get started and don't want to make a huge investment, you can get a decent but nothing special safety razor from WalMart for about $20, or online from WhippedDog.com for about $16. They aren't a Merkur, but a Honda aint a Maserati- both...
