Living in London one must invest in a good umbrella. Gone are the days of being at the mercy of the wind and rain once you stop by James Smith & Sons. It is a family run business that has been in operation for the past 175 years and happens to still reside in their original Victorian store. They stock a wide range of products and various umbrella prints ranging from classic black to stripes, checks and plaid. For the more dapper look they have a variety of animal umbrella handles as well. If an umbrella purchased through them happens to need repair (though not likely) they are happy to do so, and good news for those overseas as they ship internationally too!
