    Hi,

    Just after thoughts on which suit brush to get. I definitely don't want two - that's overkill in my book.

    http://www.kentbrushes.com/shopdispl...lothes+brushes

    Trying to decide between the:
    - CC20 - double sided; or
    - CP6 - chasmere brush.

    I'd rather not destroy my suits by brushing them, so the CP6 sounds better...but I'd actually want there to be some point in my brushing of the suit, so if the CP6 is too soft, then that's obviously a valid consideration.

    Cheers

    cp6
    Small enough to pack for travel and it works fine for all fabrics....

    Don't forget the seconds store on eBay. I bought the two sided brush from them and I can't see any blemishes.

    Me too.

    Years ago I got a cp6 from there and didn't notice any blemishes either. It's nice and still as good as new after use almost every morning.

    Thankyouthankyouthankyou for the conversation and the link to the Kent seconds store. I've been looking for a decent clothes brush (now that I understand their value, thanks once more SF) but didn't want to break the bank. [​IMG] I just ordered a pair of the double-sided brushes they have available there. Very reasonable.

    I've got a CC20 that I bought through the Kent seconds store on eBay. (I also can't find the flaw.) A very versatile brush at an unbeatable price.

    I would go with the 20 for home use and get a smaller, one sided for travel. I've got a one sided larger and one of the one-way bruches. Also would recommend getting one of those roller things w/ the roll of sticky tape on it. Easyist way to get off lint and the cat hair, you would spend half the day trying to brush off.
