Remember those sitcoms where the gift is a box within a box within a box etc.............................................................................

@58RW did warn me I would have a laugh at the packaging.

I think there's a brush in there somewhere

Today was an extremely exciting day! I actually struggled to fall asleep knowing these were arriving in the morning because I was so excited. Almost like a kid on Christmas Eve wanting to fall asleep so the day comes sooner but not able to haha.

I had not one but TWO custom brushes arriving in the mail from @TroyTools. One of them being a TF Custom and the other made by Troy himself.

First things first...look at how beautiful this brush is. I'm in love.


Troy really did a fantastic job looking after me and making sure that I was confident in all my decisions. He took heaps of pictures of his brushes and then many more of the ones that I wanted to look at further. It was a really good experience because he gave me lots of time to make the decision, I didn't feel pressured at all and he even showed me what each knot combination would look like once I picked the handle.

The brushes arrived really well bubble wrapped and in a nice gift box.


They were then also bubble wrapped on the inside of the box and wrapped in a protective cloth and the knots secured.



TroyTools Pearl Honey - 2 Band Finest Badger 24mm

If you catch it in the right light it's also got a beautiful shine to it 😍

TF Customs Aurora - 2 Band Finest Badger 24mm

Also beautiful and the keyhole shape is growing on me!

I'm so stoked with these brushes, it's really hard to capture their beauty through the camera but I've tried my best to show off the craftsmanship! I think the Pearl Honey will be my main driver because I'm so captured by it.

Huge thank you @TroyTools

St Johns' Bay Rum Virgin Island the perfect complementary aftershave to pair with The Gentlemen's Quarter Bay Rum w/ Sweet Orange

Both very strong natural scents

St Johns is a great Bay Rum!

Hmmm, those 50ml postshave gel bottles are BIG and HEAVY - they will need to be decanted!



Hopefully 'lime' enough for my son

IB stands for imitation badger.

IT stands for imitation tuxego (badger in Portuguese I believe).

Specifically, its the designation Semogue now applies to it's tinged boar bristle
(y)(y) Thank Gents, dyed boar to imitate badger then. When I read imitation had me worried I had bought a synthetic. :eek:
