History: The Gillette $1.95 Adjustable has been dubbed the "Fatboy" in relation to its successor, the Slim Adjustable. It was Gillette's first good attempt at an adjustable razor and has been met with favorable reviews both in the 50's and today.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Fatboys. In these video we feature 3 distinct types of Fatboy Adjustables made by Gillette in the late 50s and early 60s: the regular mass produced Fatboy (of millions), the early model "red dot" which is fairly rare, and the even earlier "bottom dial 195 adjustable" which is incredibly rare. While "Fatboy" is a common name for these types of Gillette razors, this name was never used by Gillette in their branding and advertising of the razor. Gillette called this razor the 195 Adjustable because it cost $1.95.
