How many crappy, cheap umbrellas have you lost in your life or left abandoned on a street corner, inside out and mangled? Gents, the neglect for umbrellas must stop. Stylish men throughout the ages have carried umbrellas as both accessories and functional tools. You should invest in a well-made men’s umbrella in the same way you would invest in a wallet – look for quality, style, construction that’s built to last and versatility.
Of course, while all umbrellas serve the same purpose, not all are made equal. Yes, you could opt for a boring all-black number, but where’s the fun in that? Umbrellas are brought out on dark and dreary days, so it’s your chance to inject a bit of fun and character into your look, and one that could well turn heads.
As with virtually any other fashion accessory, umbrellas come in various sizes too, whether it be a small pocketable number, or a large and in charge golf umbrella that could shield an entire family. It may be you need multiple umbrellas for different situations, and that’s something we certainly encourage. Just like white t-shirts, you can never have enough.
