I do see a cashmere brush on the Kent site, so it might be a good idea to have two brushes. One with the two levels on it like the double-sided Kent brush and something for more delicate fabrics.

May I ask whether you bought from the eBay store or the official website?  I'm not sure they have the cashmere brush available on eBay though.  Thank you!

Sorry for not linking to the site but you found it anyway.  Hope you get one before they run out again.

 

Good luck and Happy New Year!

Thank you kcox68!  Unfortunately, I didn't find the link for the CC20 model you mentioned.  

 

Would this double-sided clothes brush by Kent on eBay also work?  I plan to use it on my coats and suits.  Would the bristle on this brush too harsh on them?  Many thanks!

I purchased the dual clothing brush from the retail store associated with the Kent factory on ebay. [  http://stores.ebay.com/kentbrushes  ]

 

I found the cashmere brush marketed on the Kent site, but not for sale in their ebay store. There seem to be a couple on ebay, but I don't think the sellers are associated with Kent.

It's a gift from the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; it says Cereal Art Project, other than that I think it's just an ashtray.

what they do not tell you is that prolonged use of lint rollers will leave a residue on your suits and such that make them difficult to dry clean when the time comes. stick with the traditional brush, you will be better off in the long run.

I'm looking to get a suit brush and found these Kent double-sided seconds on eBay that everyone talks about: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DOUBLE-SIDED-CLOTHES-BRUSH-Kentbrushes-/141016956923?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item20d543fffb

Question is, are these the same brushes as the CC20? The pics of the CC20 show it to have all black bristles on both sides, while the image in the listing for the factory second brush shows white outer bristles on one side.

I don't have a complete answer, but I'd guess "no", and not just because of the bristle color difference. I bought the brush you linked to on ebay, and its handle is a different shape than the cc20 (I'm looking at the amazon picture). But maybe the handle shapes for the same model vary; I really have no idea. In any case, the brush you linked to works fine for me. Also: I have no idea why the brush that was delivered to me is a "second". It looks perfect.

Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and bought one of the seconded brushes in the eBay link. Figure it's a pretty good deal regardless, and I'd rather not spend close to $100 (or more) on a first quality brush. As long as it works the same, I'm good with it. smile.gif And most reviews I've read of the Kent factory second brushes say the same thing you did: no clue what the blemish is that caused them to be deemed seconds.

Quick question, what do you mainly use the brush for? The description was rather lacking in terms of specifically what uses each side is for. I'm just looking to use mine on suits...

I threw out the box (which you'll receive), but I think it said something like both sides can be used for wool but only one side should be used for cashmere. But I don't recall exactly, and I'm fairly sure I decided not to remember because I don't own any cashmere. Whatever the case, I use it to dust off my jackets/pants to further justify my dry cleaning procrastination.

Cool, thanks for the info. I don't own any cashmere either so I should be good to go. wink.gif

Hi All -

 

I have am hunting for a travel size cashmere brush. I have the standard size Kent cashmere brush, but am wondering if anyone knows of a travel size brush suitable for cashmere? I have the travel size brush for wool and suits from Kent, but am concerned it may be too stiff for the delicate cashmere. Any thoughts?
