You're the cautious, traditional type; you're not going to trust your face to just any old shaving brush. You want something with history on its side, something that's proven itself against the test of time and many trials along the way. You want a brush that's got a stiff upper lip, for your upper lip. What you're looking for is Simpsons, the company that worked its way up from a modest operation in the East End of London, survived being bombed out during the Blitz, and remains today an unruffled, stalwart representation of the proper British shave. There's nothing fancy or frou-frou about Simpsons; they're sticking to traditional badger brushes the way a man sticks to his neighborhood pub. This is shaving, simply done properly, the way they've done it since 1919.
