Three Emperors and a Rooney

with 2 comments

The photo is a little misleading: the two smaller Emperors are roughly as white on the tips of the bristles and the largest. These are the Simpsons Emperor family in Super: Emperor 3 (the largest), Emperor 2, and Emperor 1 (the smallest). The tape measure is for scale, and on the other side of it is the Rooney Style 2 Finest for comparison.

I like all the Emperors. Em’s Place (scroll down) has the Emperor 3, but I don’t think that she carries the Emperor 2 and 1, which I bought from the Gentleman’s Shop. (If the brush is shipped out of the UK, you don’t pay the VAT.)

I like all three of the Emperors and use all three, but if you were to buy just one, I think it probably should be the Emperor 3. And I do like the Super.

  1. Michael,
    Thanks for posting the pictures and for the commentary on each brush. After seeing them all together and reading your opinion of each, I, too, would be inclined to go with the Emperor 3. Perhaps, in the not too distant future I will take the plunge.

  2. I really like the “look” of the Emperor 3.
