Paladin brushes! They are the real deal.  Workmanship is as good as it comes.  If you can work it into your budget you'll have a brush that'll last you a long time. And something you'll enjoy everytime you shave! Just do it!

Having used both Shavemac & Paladin I would recommend Shavemac 2 Band.

Shopping for brushes keeps me off the streets at night.

All the above are excellent suggestions - both brushes and places to to look.  Most of the large brush makers (Simpson, Thater, etc) sell via shaving stores/sites.  Most of the artisans (Paladin, Brad Sears, etc.) sell via their website.  B/S/T can have some good deals - also some overpriced items.  Shave of the Day (SOTD) will have some examples of brushes/shapes/sizes.

I am not sure if this will be brush #2 or brush #12.  If brush #2, think about the handle shape (stubby, 55mm tall, etc) and start looking at websites.  Decide do I want it yesterday or can I wait.  Pick a handle color(s).  Since newer shaver, get a really nice knot but do not over-think.  There are some guides for bowl vs face lathering and etc., but everyone is different and different ideas.  Most good brush makers have good knowledge of what most shavers will like.
