Gents,

I see plenty of Vie-long brushes around, but can't find their website anywhere. I'm trying to get in touch with them specifically to see if I can have a 'modified' brush made. The E16510 in two band looks wonderful, but I wanted to see if I could have them make it with a fan knot instead of a bulb knot, and shorten the loft a little bit. I know they offer the 16510 in silvertip with the fan knot (which I have on order!), but I'd like to try it in 2-band as well.

Anyone know if this possible, or how to get in touch with them? Thanks!

Vie-long is easy enough to get in touch with but 1) they are not a retailer and 2) they would not likely be interested in making a single one off brush.

Well, I've sent a message to Juan. If they won't do a one-off brush, then I guess I'll just have to *suffer* with the 2-band in the bulb shaped knot...Biggrin

Not that I'm a picky guy, I just wanted two brushes of identical dimensions but differing hair type, to get a more objective impression on which I like better.

Thanks Phil, and Merry Christmas!

Thread can be closed, I've gotten what I was looking for. Thanks!

Juan emailed me back, and had no problem accommodating my request. He even offered to ship the brush without the heavy orange box (which I don't need) to save on shipping! Great service, IMO. So hopefully with the next next couple of weeks I'll have two of the 'flat loft', as they call it, brushes in differing badger to compare side by side!

Juan and the rest of the GiftsandCare.com group are great to work with. They have always been responsive to my needs or problems and they almost ship as fast as Phil. That US Customs thing seems to slow the delivery down just a bit.
