I recently ordered a Simpsons LE Synthetic but have not received it yet. I was reading the reviews here and obviously I'm a little concerned now. Are there any folks out there that are enjoying this brush?

Thanks in advance.

It took a week to get to me here in Ireland. I'm using Tapatalk and it doesn't tell me where you're from, but if it's the US then it's going to take a while longer.

First, welcome to TSN!

Brush preference is very personal, and what is good (or bad) for others may not apply to you. Also, keep in mind that far more people have (or will) order the brush than post on TSN. You'll receive your brush soon enough and judge for yourself. Worrying while it's in transit is nerve wracking and self-defeating.

Nevertheless, if you don't like the brush, you should be able to sell or trade it with little difficulty.

In the event you do not like the brush, you need not suffer in silence or "make the best of it." Promptly sell (or trade) it while the demand is still high, and use the funds to purchase a brush that will suit your preferences and taste.

In any event, good luck!

Welcome to TSN. You'll find many opinions here on brushes and can learn a great deal from our knowledgeable members. However, brushes are a highly subjective matter, so ultimately find what you like. I'm waiting on a CH2 synthetic myself and will be posting my review of it. So far, some feel the loft is too low for optimal performance, and others have posted positive remarks. One thing to keep in mind is that the opinions of us in the shave forums, while certainly well informed, may not be representative of the rest of traditional shaving world.

I definitely understand the subjective nature of these forums and I don't take negative feelings about products personally. I was wondering if the Synthetic Chubby had any fans as I haven't encountered a lot of themSmile Either way I'll be using my brush with an open mind when it arrives.

I'd be interested to hear that too having a Muhle XL synthetic that I do enjoy.
