Hi there - new to this forum, but have been wet shaving for 7 years consistently.

Have you tried West Coast Shaving for ordering products? I find they have the widest range of wet shaving products, a huge (and helpful) community, and the customer service is great. I actually binge watch on their 'daily shave of the day videos' on youtube.

I usually order at my family in the states and then next person into Singapore brings it in for me. But I am sure they ship to Singapore. Also, do ask them to put a few samples in.

If u doing that Italian barber also not bad. Spend like usd$60 get free shipping, those clearance items can be pretty cheap. I have seen Proraso white going for usd$4.99

If u like razorock razor can order from them.

I have to agree west coast is a great place shipping to sg better than Italian barber.

Hi im sorta new to DE Shaving, have tried it before a few years back with mustafa omega brushes and cheap pasar malam china made DE Razors. trying to get back into it since i can afford proper shaving tools/soaps etc now and to treat myself. Couple of questions.

1) Other than Maggards, connought, west coast shaving etc, are there any other online sites that provides cheap or free shipping, and has a wide range to choose from? im trying to loook at UK sites where the pound is just weaker now.

2) Are there decent priced local shaving supplies other than mustafa / haniffa? places where i can buy soaps, creams, aftershaves or blades etc

3) just to confirm, we cant ship over alcohol based products, but we can bring in bulk blades and soaps and creams/lotions right?

i noticed that on Edwin Jagger online site, it is actually way cheaper than the local or other online shops. Has anyone tried buying and shipping it from there? any thoughts on their brushes/ soaps? i will probably buy my first proper set from there (everything except the blades)

thanks in advance for any replies!

Responses to your questions above:

1. Can try The English Shaving Company

2. It's pretty much around Little India. Some bros buy from Apollo around there. There are some shops elsewhere selling specific DE blades (e.g. Feathers). But for me, if want to get a wide spread of shaving items it is Little India.

3. Yes, no alcohol, others are ok.

I have bought from The English Shaving Company; getting Edwin Jaggers there is the same as getting from EJ site. Proper set could be had from them; they are having Summer Sale now. Else, I would get from Connaught. Just have to do some comparisons.

Hi guys, I am looking for a synthetic brush without breaking a bank while at the same time, strong and firm backbone. West Coast Shavings sent me multiple emails about their synthetic brush.

I hope you can give tips on "what to look out for", or recommend me other worthy brushes that are reasonably priced and yet competes with almost TOTL synthetic brushes.

Is this worth it for a starter set?

It depends on your budget, brand/country preference, etc.

Beside your mentioned starter set, there are several others, like those from Maggard etc. Just have to make some comparisons before buying.

You need a brush and shaving soap/cream too. One can source from different places, mix and match to form a starter set too.
