Escape the rain with a Swaine Adeney Brigg umbrella
Like socks and underwear, the umbrella serves a practical purpose – a vital necessity when the weather turns damp. But this does not mean that an umbrella’s aesthetics – and, similarly, socks and underwear – should fall to the wayside.
Rather than investing in several cheap, prone-to-breaking numbers each year, head straight to the creme de la creme of rain shields – Swaine Adeney Brigg. The sole supplier of umbrellas to the British Royal Family for almost 120 years, Swaine Adeney Brigg expertly craft handsome, luxury umbrellas for the discerning gent.
Solid wooden shafts of striped cherry, bark or polished chestnut, whangee and hickory top a canopy of fine English silk or nylon. Gold-plated or silver collars can be engraved with your initials to avoid awkward umbrella thieving. Frequent flyers will enjoy the two-piece travel models, which unscrew to fit into a suitcase. Or perhaps the Malacca cane umbrella with a concealed drinking flask is more your style? Purchase online before the next week-long Brisbane downpour.
