Clothes Brush Alternative

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

As I build the basics of my wardrobe, I am realizing  that I should focus more on upkeep. I'm in the market for a brush with which to care for my suits, sport coats, trousers, and sweaters. Unfortunately, the only affordable, quality option I have found is the Kent CC2. However, I personally don't like boar bristles. Can anyone recommend any alternatives?

 

I've heard a lot of good things about the softness of goat hair. It's unclear if it would work, but I'm tempted to use the Hanger Project's Deluxe Goat Hair Finishing Brush.

 

But, in short, I'm looking for a good quality clothes brush that is affordable and not made of boar bristle.

Why dont you like boar bristle/ why are you looking for an alternative to what is generally considered the best option for garment care?

I don't think there is anything wrong with them per say. I just don't like the texture/feel of the bristles. It's really just a pet peeve. I imagine there must be other options.

 

I found this goat hair brush from BB, but it's quite expensive.

Goat hair is very soft and is usually only for cashmere and other delicate fabrics. For typical suits and sportcoats, boar bristle is the way to go. Any alternative will not be as good, so far as I am aware.

Personally, I use one made of horsehair for my clothing.

Is your brush designed for shoes?

No, it is a clothing brush, but I realize that a lot of shoe brushes are also made of horsehair (have those too).

I bought it in Japan, at Mitsukoshi, if memory serves.
