Did your shipping confirmation email come from Deutsche Post/DHL? And did it say it was an order from 3PL Limited? I just got an email from them with shipping confirmation information and that’s what it said. I would have ordered off of Amazon as well but unfortunately I was wanting a handle color option other than the standard faux ivoryI placed my order from SimpsonShavingBrushes (don't know if that's the manufacturer's website) on October 20th. I'm still waiting for mine. Tracking status still shows "Pre-Shipment: Original Post is Preparing Shipment". Now this is AFTER it had gone through a week travelling out of Germany. I thought the manufacturer is in the UK, but apparently my shipment originates from Germany and may be stops by the Simpson's office in UK first before it gets to the US. Man.....if I knew it takes this long...I would have spent a few more bucks and get it from Amazon instead.
It’s possible that Simpson’s has changed from a previous shipping partner to Deutsche Post DHL and DHL might automatically show orders as originating in Frankfurt am Main regardless of the actual shipping origin location. I’m not sure why they would do that thoughWhy would it come from Germany?? Simpson is on the Isle of Man, a part of the UK (crown dependency). Whenever I bought from them, it came from there.
