Scotsman Alexander Simpson started production of shaving brushes and male grooming ancillaries in 1919 and is widely regarded as a pioneer in the industry. Manufacturing was originally based in the East end of London but later in Clapham. In 1941, following the loss of his factory during the World War II German Luftwaffe blitz, production was moved to the West Country at the famous Nimmer Mill.

Today Simpson shaving brushes and associated products are manufactured by Progress Shaving Brush (Vulfix) Limited on the historic Isle of Man. They continue to be produced in the traditional way using hand tied knots by time served skilled workers.  

The famous military derived Colonel X2L shaving brush is celebrated here in a classic faux Ivory handle and filled with our uniquely sourced Sovereign grade synthetic fibre.  
Described by many as the perfect introduction to the Simpson stable of brushes.

The Colonel X2L represents amazing value for money and is a very versatile performer, equally adept with both shaving soaps & creams.

Colonel X2L approximate brush specifications:
Overall brush height - 98mm
Handle height - 53mm
Knot loft - 45mm
Knot diameter - 21mm
Weight - 63g

The ultimate face lathering experience.

To achieve that perfect rich lather we recommend using back & forth or paint brush strokes with all our synthetic bristle offerings.

My wife bought this brush for me. I have a small collection of shaving brushes , badger, boar, and synthetic. This has become my go to brush With this brush and my Captains Choice copper (heavyweight) lather bowl I have a thick creamy lather in a matter of seconds. If you are on the fence about this brush just get it you won’t regret it.


Simpson Colonel x2 synthetic fiber shaving brush

I have a small collection of shave brushes both badger and synthetic and so far this is my favorite. I have been using the Captains Choice copper lather bowl (heavyweight) and in a matter of seconds I have a rich creamy lather. I highly recommend this brush. Maggard razors is great to deal with and they ship very quickly.
