    Jame Dean Double Bash Fedora?

    I shot this pic of a pic at the Monterrey Aquarium. There is a display that that is an old 50's cafe with vintage photos on the wall. The reason I took it was the rear bash on James Dean's fedora. Anyone seen this double bashing before? [/IMG]

They had a website with a ton of photos, but I lost...

    So what's in a correct shaving kit

    I think "toothpowder" was common. My grandfather had some in a red oval can (maybe Pepsident?) and I used it as I preferred the taste over tooth pastes of today. I now use baking soda. Either a straight razor or double edged razor should be in the kit. I've seen travel kits with nail...

    Cleaning Tips for your Vintage Clothes

    Just found this site while looking for some leather care info. I have to disagree with their recommendation of mink oil for leather jackets, however. I would never use mink oil on any leather. Several websites recommend bee oil and say mink oil is a no-no. But lots of good info on general...

    Vintage clothes in "Barb Wire" with Pamela Anderson
