I paid another visit to Jermyn Street yesterday. I had a browse in Taylors, Trumpers and DR Harris. Each has a huge variety of shaving temptations. I bought just two travel shaving brushes. Both bore the shop logo although one was made by Edwin Jagger and one by Vulfix. It would of course have been cheaper to buy the brushes as Jagger or Vulfix brands but I wanted the shop logo - and these shops are in prime locations!
I was struck by how many soft floppy brushes were on display. And the almost complete absence of two band brushes. There really are significant differences between the preferences of the shaving aficionados who dominate the internet forums and the general shaver and shopper looking for gifts.
