UK Umbrella-Shop Quality Umbrellas



Although London has gotten rid of the term “Foggy Capital,” it often rains and is still the objective truth today. Even if the annual rainfall is not as high as in some tropical cities, the weather in Britain’s oceanic and climatic conditions is still quite different from the monsoon.

The nature of Rain alongside the wind pattern is almost synonymous with the bad weather conditions in this part of the country. Unlike countries with four different clear seasons, such as Britain, which has nearly a year of drizzle or torrential storms, the wind, which is into the night of rain, and the common domestic summer thunderstorms are also part.


London is in southeast England, and its highlands are in the North and have a much harsher climate. However, the southeast coast, which seems well suited to holidays, is cold and un-swimmable for most of the year. The wind pattern mixed with the rain is always bitter and unfavorable during bad weather.

Besides, variability is also a cause of Britain’s miserable climate during the rainy season. When you come to the UK, it is essential to be conversant with the weather condition as there are no tangible reasons why people talk about the weather. White clouds over the horizon would soon be overcast, temperatures would drop, and rain would fall.

When the weather is so rainy, there is a considerable possibility that umbrellas would have a place in the traditional image of the English gentleman. The London newspaper Evening Standard said of the five gentlemen selected for 2012 by country life magazine: ‘The perfect British Gentleman It used to be “sporting a beard, proudly wearing a white tie, eating risotto for breakfast and always showing off with a cigarette in-between.”

This image, coupled with the top hat and leather carrying bags with a long handle umbrella, should constitute the classic image of the old-school Gentleman.

The Chinese invented the umbrella in ancient times, but the British made the connection between the umbrella and the way of life. It was not until the 17th century that European women began to use umbrellas, mainly to protect themselves from the Sun; by the 18th century, umbrellas were being used to keep out the rain.

The First British Gentleman who used an umbrella

In 1750, a British gentleman, Jonah Hanway by name, started to use an umbrella, which caused him a lot of ridicule. The ridicule is because, at that time, only women used umbrellas, but at least Hanway didn’t get caught in the rain. Hanway held on to an umbrella for 30 years, and by the late 18th century, it was becoming socially acceptable for men to use it.

The world’s first umbrella shop was opened in 1830 by Mr. James Smith at 53 Bond Street, London. The umbrellas he sells are works of art: shelves made of wood or whale bones, umbrellas of Alpaca skin or felt; he even pays artisans to decorate them.

For example, carved patterns on Precious Blackwood umbrella handles. Of course, these umbrellas were expensive and were a luxury item at the time, as a result of elaborate carving through rare materials.

And the umbrella, usually made of wood and Linoleum, is heavy and difficult to handle. 1852’s steel-framed umbrella evolved into the umbrella we see today, and its inventor, Samuel Fox, a British and the founder of the British Steel Company.

Victorian women’s love of parasols was related to their values. A pale complexion is a symbol of beauty but also a sign of social class and an elegant lady who does not need to work outdoors.

Parasols became essential accessories such as gloves, shoes, hats, fans, and stockings and were incorporated into the pattern in which women look every day. Every outfit had a parasol to go with it. This made parasols and fans famous, along with lace handkerchiefs, until the Edward era of the 20th century.

But the way of life changed dramatically in the 20th century due to changes in time and technology. Because of the evolution of democracy and social class and the development of science and technology, the details of human life have changed.

As more people choose the fastest plane, the loading, and unloading are done mainly by the conveyor belt so that the Heavy leather suitcases are gradually replaced by light and sturdy bags, even if the latter seems more imposing.

In the same way, when the heavy head in the luggage becomes a heavy computer with information rather than a few pieces of clothing and a few books, there will be less market for a heavy suitcase without wheels and most especially when there are fewer baggage handlers at transportation hubs.

However, in the olden days, ladies and gentlemen were constantly being taken out by servants. Nowadays, more families are no longer employing people or sorting out the tasks that need to be done manually by professional servants such as Nannies, gardeners, and drivers.

It is hard to imagine that a trip with a mountain of suitcases and a hat in a box could have been so successful. So does the briefcase, and so does the umbrella.

Reproduction and functionality are characteristic of Industrial Society, and even so, aesthetic schools emerged during this period. The overall aesthetic of human beings is moving in the direction of popularization.

The 20th century saw two world wars, significant economic growth, and the Great Depression accompanied by a cultural revolution. However, if not the greatest in human history, with the emancipation of the mind brought about by the eventual collapse of a millennia-old feudal system which is enough to be at the top of the list.

Parasols returned to fashion consciousness in 1990, largely because of a new understanding of skin cancer. The return has led to the popularity of parasols in many countries, but the designs are the familiar folding umbrellas that block ultraviolet light.

But London is London, and Europe is Europe. Even though the young people in the streets are as casual as those in other parts of the world, there are still old-fashioned people or people who are not too old but stick to the retro look, wearing full suits. Moreover, Casual Modernity and archaic insistence can live in harmony, and both can accept and appreciate the other.

Presently in London, there are no shops that specialize in selling umbrellas.  In a highly commercialized society where accessories are more profitable than fashion, the umbrella is not certainly the best-selling accessory.

A good gentleman’s modeling would want to match the long handle umbrella that suits his outfit but not easy. Burberry’s men’s collection is sold with umbrella accessories with the price tag of # 400 and such a relatively high pop. But in my experience, a good style, quality, and a long umbrella enhance sharp modeling.

Would you believe me if I said that another famous Trench coat in England could be regarded as an essential tool to shelter from the wind and rain? Nowadays, even if it rains in the sky, neither people do use umbrellas to shelter from the rain or raincoats to shelter from the rain.

What do you do when it rains? The answer is simple. If it’s not too big, get wet. If it’s too big, find shelter. Like the Evening Standard Pundit put it, today’s English gentleman, switching from a nicotine obsession to a boyfriend, eats healthy cereal with blueberries, has a clean-shaven beard, and never wears a tie.

Undoubtedly, everyone has an umbrella in the UK, which is why many of the world’s best umbrella brands were born in the UK. For Britain, a good umbrella can not only shelter from the wind and rain, but also with a good symbol of identity and status.
