The most noticeable impact of climate change so far in Northern California is that rainy season began this week, a month early for the second or third year in a row. And complementing our SWIMS overshoes for wet conditions I am happy to introduce for your consideration three gentleman's umbrellas hand made by Milan's Maglia Francesco, supplier of umbrellas to the likes of Hermes, Chanel and more than one of the best English names.
The two most renowned handles in the classic umbrella repertoire are Malacca, a species of rattan, and Whangee, a type of bamboo. John Steed carried the latter. So did Bertie Wooster. I offer both.
In stock in solidly constructed regular and travel sizes (the latter rather cleverly unscrews into three pieces for packing), with navy blue twill canopies because the well dressed man looks better in blue than he does in black.
And if you do not yet have the aforementioned SWIMS overshoes, they are also in stock, in no fewer than five colors,
