Re: Need avice on lathering Trumpers soap.

Gordon, The persistent rumor I read on shave forums is that Harris continues to make their own soaps at a facility they own in one of the London boroughs. Who knows if its true. A poster at B&B claimed to have talked to someone from Harris within the past year and claims the Harris people said they ...

Any chance that you might ever stock the Atkinson's bath soaps from Il Coloniali? The soaps are top notch and I'd prefer to buy them from you Phil.

Re: Need avice on lathering Trumpers soap.

Craig, I see. Well, that's just jolly...sigh. That Standard Soap Co. used to make the old T&H soaps which,as you know, were quite good. Still, surely Trumper et al. have other options in Britain, Bronnley for example? They MUST know by now that these soaps are unuseable...how long do they think the...

Re: Is Coate's still on the horizon?

Red Lion Foods? color me particularly non-encouraged by this news. I'd bet dollars to donuts that *if* the brand returns, it will consist of rebranded brushes & razors made by another company (ie Vulfix, Muhle), shave soaps manufactured by the likes of Soapworks (the producers of the loathsome shave...

Re: Vintage Coates Almond Shave Cream

Thanks for clarifying the cap issue Andy, we do not want to see wild internet rumors get loose on a great stash of shave cream. :wink: Definitely. I didn't mean to imply anything about the creams that Andy is so generously offering. I was just going my past experience with the caps on Coates tunes,...

I just ordered a stash of Coates as well. I can't wait to revisit this old favorite. Just remember: be careful with those caps Gents, they break easily.

Re: Need avice on lathering Trumpers soap.

Gordon, This one firm is singlehadedly nearly ruining the British shave soap industry. I'm not kidding about that. It's posted in more detail on the 2nd page of this thread: http://forum.shavemyface.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=52294&start=20 This firm, Soapworks, purchased the business of the firm that ...

Re: Need avice on lathering Trumpers soap.

As Gary wrote, the Trumper soaps being made today are awfulm they are being made by a firm in Glasgow called Soapworks, who also make equally awful soaps for Penhaligon's, Truefitt and Crabtree. They are as bad as anything that's on the market, simply unlatherable. The scents are wonderful, you migh...

Re: Huge News:Re-Reformulated Penhaligon's Soaps

One last note. I found this article yesterday. It turns out that Broad Oak Toiletries, the firm that produces shave soaps for Floris, is actually the "sister company" of Floris: http://www.packagingnews.co.uk/equipment/adelphi-filling-kit-solves-a-very-sticky-issue-project-profile/?goback=%2Egde_257...

Gary,

Mike's is the best artisan shave soap that I've tried. YMMV and all.
