London Undercover Umbrellas – So Long Summer Quintessential Gent 13 August, 2013 Established in 2008 and having already collaborated with the likes of A Bathing Ape and YMC, premium umbrella designer London Undercover have quickly established a name for themselves as makers of quintessentially British quality umbrellas. And with our brief summer looking like it’s on its last legs what better time to pick out an umbrella for the inevitably rainy months ahead. London Undercover produce a variety of fun and creative prints, as well as more traditional designs for their umbrellas, which all feature gorgeously molded and varnished wooden handles. With the Classic, City Gent, Premium and Animal Head ranges, there is something at London Undercover to suit every taste. with some of favourites including the rather dapper Sherlock Monogram Umbrella featuring a bamboo handle, and the classic Black & Grey Houndstooth with maple shaft and handle. The umbrella remains one of the few truly year round essential accessories for the discerning city gent, and let’s face it, with our climate you’ll never be short of an occasion to bust out your brolly.
