That's a gorgeous brush.

What I find bizarre is that the brushes are made in England, I live in England, no-one in the UK or Europe appears to stock them and the only option I have in getting one is to import one from the US. Huh

I am not normally attracted to the resin handles that have swirls. I could not stomach the 2011 Semogue LE and sold it. But the cobalt blue, and the shape of the handle, is very attractive. I see why you bought it!

Lee must be very busy. I have sent emails about options, without much success. Maybe if everyone post what they have gotten I can see what his options are and go ahead and just tell him what to make instead of emails every few days.

I have seen this beautiful blue and a swirled jade that is beautiful!!

Would you guys be pleased if we offered a limited run of the M7 in the Cobalt material?

It would certainly be a nice addition to the GYLE and Ivory M7. I only wish I could afford one.

@melyus - gorgeous brush! I really appreciate all the brush porn too!

@Mark - an M7 in that cobalt material, in 2-band sounds pretty good to me Smile

i'd love to see more colors added to Simpsons lineup, preferably at the same price as the current cream/ivory ones.

What he said.
In particular, the faux horn, like the Vulfix faux horn brushes.

there is a reason the L7 threads are popping up everywhere, they are fantastic brushes and affordable for everyday people and look and feel amazing and perform wonderfully.

back to the L7, let's not turn this into another Simpson thread Angry

i used my L7 today for the 3rd day in a row and again, WOW.

1 hair lost in 3 days, great backbone, soft and i do not find it to be a lather hog.

Lee has done a fine job with this one, and hopefully the OP is as happy with his as i am with mine.

love the colors he offers as well. great variety and choice for anyone's taste.

Very nice looking brush, lovely shape, plus i'm liking the handle colour, but I draw the line with Simpson brushes comming out with colourful handles, lets just keep the classic appeal of less is more, tasteful and the typical UK reserved nature of these very british brushes, you dont need change for change sake.

It's a beautiful brush Bruce. I used mine again to remind myself how good this brush and knot in particular feels. I started thinking about placing an order for L7, maybe in different colour though. They all look so nice and different.

Adding the bits of history as I said I would on the forum.....

Simpson made brushes with blue, green, red, silver, gold, chequered, striped handles from the 1930s right through to the 1980s.

You made a good point about the history Garry. Speaking of history, I guess Lee's making history now with his different handles and colours. They'll be considered history in future and their uniqueness will add value from collectable point of vew.

would that make it a "copy of a copy or a copy"?

i'm looking at a Psychadelic M&F for my next brush...maybe a nice big fat knot, 28-32mm in the T&H Woodstock material. i just haven't decided on a handle shape yet.

gotta mix it up every once in a while.
