I have three umbrellas from them and I think they are the best out of the Big Three (the others being Brigg and Fox). Given the prices of the high-end stick umbrellas (they sell cheaper Fox frame ones for everyday use), you'll probably only want to use them for special occasions but with their repair service it means that they would last a lifetime and they are far sturdier than the cheap disposable folding brollies that you usually find abandoned and strewn on the street everyday. The frames are strong and hold the canopy taught and this eliminates them turning out on itself like the flimsy leaf-like ones.


Simply a brilliant shop! Canes, walking sticks and umbrellas. Get a bit of style into your life but be prepared to pay a bit more. It's worth it.
