There is only one name for professional painters when it comes to paint brushes: Purdy. It’s LATEX. See why it is important to use the best painting brushes.
For a paint job, I recommend that you use the best paint brushes from Purdy. I have to report that the majority of self-taught, cutting-corner painters will buy 5 dollar brushes, use them once and then throw them away. I find this to be sort of crazy. I buy a 25 dollar brush (more than you need as a homeowner) and I use it day in and day out for months…And my 3-month old brushes cut a better line than any new 5-dollar brush!
There is only one name for professional painters when it comes to paint brushes–I rarely am this blunt but please buy the good paint brushes from this brand: Purdy (here their website). They are high-quality brushes. That is true for exterior and interior painting. This link is the one for you if you are a do-it-yourself-er. It’s 2-inches wide. I use a 3.5 inch or ever 4 if I can get them and I won’t hire a painter who uses less than 2. But most of all it’s LATEX-ONLY.
Nylox, the Purdy line of synthetic bristle I recommend, is high-quality latex only, so don’t use with oil-based paints. I no longer buy combination oil/latex brushes: there is little call for oil brushes anymore and even if I used an oil brush, I would not clean it as cleaning oil-based paint out of a brush is an exercise in futility. It is hard, smelly, toxic work, and still, the brush is not right after only one use.
But here is the main reason why this is one of the best paint brushes: the high-quality bristle. The Nylox bristles hold a great amount of paint without dripping and the texture is designed to find the corner of a room or corner next to a window frame very easily: like magic really. It is a quality brush.

Recently, Sherwin Williams (one of the two ‘good’ paint brands left, the other being Benjamin Moore) purchased Purdy Brushes. Sherwin Williams is in an expansion phase with investors and so on, and good luck to them. They do offer VOC-free paints, but Ben Moore is ahead of them in that race. Anyway, I find Purdy to still be the same good old quality it always was. Let’s just hope that S.W. does not do to them what big companies often do: cut quality to make more money. We hope they keep making those excellent paint brushes.
Last bit: when a Purdy brush becomes just too old for painting walls, I still don’t retire them. I cut the handle off and keep in my pouch as a dust brush. It comes in handy to paint in tight spots too! Did I mention that I love my Purdys?
