Rumour has it in far flung places that T&H are dropping Rooney from their supply chain?

Anyone heard similar or approached T&H to confirm if this is correct or internet shennanigans?

Staggering if true given the popularity & quality of the product?

I can only think of delivery issues as s possible reason.

Me too Teiste, I really would like to know a little bit of the FACTS surrouding TF&H brushes, their supposedly relationship with Rooney and who makes what for whom Huh

I'm a brush fan, and as such I'm interested in this subject - or just call me curious and nosy Tongue

I still am not sure Lee Sabini makes Rooney or if he sold it to someone else - I just know that several vendors in Europe have skipped selling Rooney brushes during 2012 - and when asked, they said they had too much hazzle with communication and delivery.

Maybe T&H had difficulty contacting Rooney Wink

It would be nice if Mark wasn't under that non-disclosure agreement and we didn't have to do detective work to figure out the truth. Cool But, T&H & DRH wants to keep things secret or maybe Vulfix does. Regardless, their prerogative.

The real secret is that Mark is Lee. Rooney and M&F are his way of making money off the books. Shhh....don't tell anyone.

I've actually had similar thoughts, but upon further thinking quickly dismissed them as being silly based on the evidence.

Vulfix making Rooney/M&F brushes just made too much sense to ignore the possibility. But alas, I don't think it is so. I'm 99.95% sure about that.

Why not - please comment, or PM me Smile

I have never thought that Mark could be Lee Sabini - also a member in here have personally met Lee Sabini...... so that idea is pretty crazy and far out.

But again, you never know Confused

There's a discussion about this on B&B started 2/1/13 by tezza under Shaving Brushes and titled "Anyone know who's going to be supplying the new T&H brushes?" One of the guys posting says he got an email from T&H confirming they are changing brush suppliers. Speculation is rampant, with some suggesting Simpson is taking over.

I think Vulfix/Mark could very well be the new supplier of brushes for TF&H Wink

I'm only guessing - have ZERO knowledge about this, but a bird or two whistled in my direction Wink

GFT dumped Simpson , and some of their brushes now are made by Muhle , and other , for what I understand , are made in China.

Some of the T&H brushes look to me like they could be made by Vulfix and they have had some Simpson brushes that were made specially for them. The Silvertips are the ones made by Rooney. I suspect they could shift to a supplier in China.

I had a phone conversation with Mr Todd Fisher (T&H USA) this morning , and he told me that T&H USA still carries Rooney products and he hopes to continue carrying them in the future , but they have suffer from some kind of inconsistency receiving supplies for them , so he doesn't know what is going to happen in the future since they haven't received some items they have back ordered for months now.
Also he doesnt knows if T&H UK have decided to stop working with Rooney and look for another supplier. Maybe Mark knows more about this matter.

D. R. Harris at St. James St. is perhaps the best place in London to buy a Simpsons brush... Rolleyes Am I right, Mark? Cool
