For those of you that have multiple Simpson's brushes in different colors...calling Ben, which is your favorite. I see that now on their site they have a couple of the LE Manchurian brushes up for sale. Now I just have to decide cobalt, jade, or Ivory. What's yall's opinions?

While I don't have any of those from Simpson I will say that the Jade is my personal favorite.

Make like a tree and... branch? Oh well, you get the idea. I like having different materials but then again if there was one that really stood out, it might be the Jade. Smile

I'm a purist, and would only purchase the traditional handle color for the stock brushes, but I agree, the jade is pretty nice looking.

I prefer real vintage Simpson butterscotch, but in currently available materials make mine the original faux ivory please.

If you can't decide, you could always choose multi-colour...

Or if you are like me, purchase one in each colour...

Or perhaps black...

Ben, maybe I should just wait until you sell off your black Rover. It is currently the brush I am looking at in Manchrian on their site, but currently all they have listed in LE section is jade, cobalt, and the ivory stripe.Angry On a more serious note, I want to thank all the vendors. I know they have a tough job trying to satisfy all of us.
