MATCHBOX Restoration No 14c Bedford L.C.C. Ambulance 1962

This little number was cheap, as it had parts broken and missing. It wasn't going to be cheap to get it back on the road again but me being me, I figured if I don't fix it up then no one will! - I paid my money and took it home. This insignificant little Matchbox car took me the best part of 10 hours of my free time, and $40 of my hard earned cash, to make it look half decent again. Sometimes I think I must be crazy to take these projects on! - PS: Don't tell the wife!

We discuss what it is, what it is not, the history, what to look for when you buy one and how to wear it so you look your best. What makes a fedora? Basically, a fedora hat is a snap brim hat. it's called that way because you can actually snap the brim down. A fedora is typically pinched in the middle and then again in the front. One of the big hallmarks and probably the reason it's so popular is that the Fedora is shapeable in many different forms. Next up is the brim of the fedora. First of all, you can have different sizes. You can have very short brims, medium brims, and wide brims. Again, if you want to stay timeless, something around in the middle length is probably your best bet. Of course, it all comes down to what your face shape is and so larger brims work better for some persons and shorter for others. The brim of the fedora can be snapped down in the front or snapped down all the way around or snaps up in the front and down in the back. In terms of material, most fedoras these days are made from wolf felt which is basically hair from sheep that is felted which is not woven but the hair is taken together, rubbed together until they intertwine and they don't come apart anymore. The next step up would be a rabbit or hare felt which is finer and softer and it usually makes for a great hat. The very best qualities are beaver felt hats and they usually use hair from the belly of the beaver. In terms of hat decoration, most hats will feature a band on the outside and there can be a bow, there can be you can have different kind of ribbons, sometimes you have little things that dangle on them, other times you can have a really wide band or a slim band maybe a leather band and sometimes you can even see people that add feathers to their hat just to highlight the individual character. So how did the fedora get its name? In the 1890s, there was a play titled Fedora and at the time, all men wore hats on the street. The everyday man didn't have much money and could only afford one hat that had to serve multiple purposes. The fedora was great because it could be shaped in any form needed. At that time, no gentleman would have ever worn a fedora hat. The Homburg hat is their go to choice. A gentleman would maybe only wear a fedora hat in the countryside for very casual outings. Just like many other things in menswear, the Prince of Wales wore a fedora in 1924 and it became hugely popular that way because he liked softer things. So how should you wear a fedora hat in this day and age? Basically, you want to wear it with a classically inspired outfit which means a jacket or a suit. If you want you could wear it with a chalk stripe or pinstripe suit that's rather bold. As the fedora is a classic piece of headwear that's not worn a lot anymore, I suggest you go with like double-breasted suits, peak lapels, maybe single breasted suits with a vest like a three-piece suit or with a contrasting vest. You can also have accessories such as cufflinks or rings maybe a tie bar or a collar bar because it just underlines the entire classic look of the fedora. Wear the fedora the right season. A felt hat is great in the winter and it's cold outside maybe in the fall and also in spring but not during the summer. FEDORA HAT ETIQUETTE The golden rule is whenever you're inside, take the hat off. Also, if you wear a fedora hat, try to avoid sunglasses because it simply looks odd and over-the-top. #fedorahats #menshats #notsponsored -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

How to Make Cheap Boots Look Expensive

I get it. I show a lot of expensive things on this channel and it may be discouraging to a student or young man looking to begin curating a wardrobe. This is a technique I first saw on Dappered and have always wanted to try; it essentially makes cheap leather look more expensive. How? Well you'll need a few things: a horsehair brush, a dauber, and black shoe polish. I went with the Saphir black because it's so pigmented but you can try your favorite brand too. All you do is give the boots a shine using the same steps you would with a normal shoe, but the black polish darkens the leather and brings out the edges nicely. They may not be hand painted and distressed but this is a budget build after all! Yes, over time the polish will wear off. Its probably best to stick with medium to dark trousers until they've really dried out and any loose polish has been removed - keep your white denim away!

Barbour Vs. Filson Waxed Jackets

Barbour and Filson: two heritage companies with over 100 years of history, one English and one American, but which makes the superior waxed jacket? Truthfully, it's hard to go wrong with either, the Barbour has a "wetter" wax finish and hand warmer pockets, the Filson has a moleskin collar and comes with a free can of wax treatment. Both make an excellent product and Barbour or Filson are superb choices.
