I picked up one of the Gitman for Kafka masks, worked out less than £10 with my account. Sold out now but could restock. https://www.kafkamercantile.com/uk/item/38101/GitmanVintage/Chambray-Face-Mask—Blue.html

Looks like Trunk have some but in packs of two for £30 https://www.trunkclothiers.com/products/gitman-vintage-cotton-oxford-face-masks-2-pack-blue?variant=32209099194403

These look decent but more expensive https://profoundco.com/collections/masks

Ordered a couple of those sunspel ones just now.

David Haye has launched some Laughing out loud https://www.theblackmaskcompany.com/

Went for the plain black Paisie ones: https://www.paisie.com/collections/face-masks

Can't fault it for that price. Good shape/size, nosebridge seal, space for a filter and the adjustable straps are nice.

If you want something with patterns, these look decent: https://masachuka.com/shop/

Why are you all buying cloth ones from clothing brands! You need to get to tool station, screw fix etc and get yourself a ffp3 mask.

These look decent for the price. Shame they don’t do a grey colour.

Lol, one; most ffp3 masks at these type of places are sold out or only shit massive ones that no one else wants.

Two; you don’t need that level of protection to get your coco pops down Sainsbury’s local. Completely unnecessary imo.

This^^^ reason is to stop YOU from exhaling all your germs over everything. Valved FFP3 masks just act like a jet stream when you exhale.

Isn't it only a problem if you are asymptomatic or positive, otherwise they provide the wearer with better protection.

I thought it was all bollocks anyway seeing as they think it's now aerosolized and the eyeball can soak up the virus

This isn't new information Laughing out loud This has been known since forever about viruses (especially respiratory).

Edit: Masks are ultimately about limiting the spread of the virus. The preventative measure is not in place so you don't breathe in the virus, it's there so it's not as actively spread for it to go into your eyeball in the first place.

It's not 100 effective but it's better than no mask.

Nope not new, thats why I've said it from the off Laughing out loud they seem to be only coming around to the idea that its aerosilized over here even though in Asia they've been spraying the shit out of places since it broke out.

Some of these masks are only effective against spreading if you have the sodding thing and expelling shite all over the place. They're useless if you are entering an area where this shit is in the air unless you have a decent one and its fitted correctly and have protective eye covering, hence the PPE in high risk areas in the NHS. Whole thing is a joke in the UK.
