Maguire's Barbershop.... ?????

#68
Browsing on ebay and I came across this, the address and product list looks awful familiar. Maguire's under a new name? http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/the.original.shaving.company?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

Potential warning for future buyers


Yes, you're quite right. It's not new though. They are showing on Ebay as having registered in Jan. 2015 using the name Original Shaving Company. They've been on Amazon (under the same name) for a good while too.

The North Jesmond Avenue address (in a pleasant, leafy residential road) as well as the Newton Road shop address all link in together. And the Ebay advert you point out has a scrolling banner advertising Maquire's Barber Shop. They give a different business address for Amazon customers... similar area though. And it has to be said the feedback on both sites isn't generally too bad.

All perfectly OK but blokes here have numerous instances of being ripped off and subsequently ignored when they make enquiries to see where their orders are.... and finish up having to claim from PayPal.

That really gives me the 'ump.

I ordered one from them a short time back with no problems whatsoever.
The brush arrived in good time and I was happy with my first experience with this company. P.
Oh, good to hear.

It's the only boar brush with a 24mm knot set at 50mm which I can find.

These dimensions are my favourite combination for
boar, and so far this Omega is the only one I came across apart from my own vintage Semogue Creda limited edition from few years back which is 23mm by 50mm.

It's a lovely little brush.....I got mine a few years ago from Connaughts ....I think. It didn't get much use at the time as I was really enjoying my Semogue 1470. Things have changed and it is now one of my favourites. I would certainly go for it.
I have also bought from Maguires and have never had a problem.
