I have mentioned before that the stick Smiths look like they are from Talarico but the Smiths versions are more refined whereas the Talarico are more rustic. Eg the shaft of the Smiths is polished while Talarico was nubby with the bark still on.

The umbrellas are made by Francesco Maglia, not Talarico. When I ordered mine last year they received some packages with Maglia stickers on them. He ist one of the last an probably the largest supplier of these kinds of umbrellas, their sticks and other pieces.

I think Maglia supplies the frame and metal parts but Talarico provides the sticks.

I don't believe Talarico makes their own sticks. They didn't seem to have the capacity to when I visited both of their workshops. Plus, Mario Jr. told me that they get them delivered, but I don't know from who. I have my guesses, since there aren't many people who do this type of work, but conjecturing here seems like the kind of thing that leads to crazy internet rumors (e.g. all Marinellas are made by Drake's).

When I visited in 2008, they had whangee-handled sticks sitting around that were bound up to shape their curves. But, that was 2008. And then, they would not speak about a custom order or cutting a stick to length. So, who knows.

Hi all,

 

I've just joined StyleForum and am going to London the week after next. I am a slim, short person, which makes finding clothes difficult. I buy a lot of clothes at Uniqlo because their XS shirts / jackets and 29 waist chinos fit well, are of good quality for the price, and are simply & fairly elegantly styled (unlike what I've seen in other mass market chains such as H & M, C & A, Zara, etc.)

 

I'm wondering if anyone knows of shops in London that sell small sizes (I'm looking in particular for shirts and jackets). I wear a 44 jacket in France (34 UK/US?). I'm looking for off-the-rack clothes, not bespoke, in natural fibres (synthetic linings are OK) and don't want to break the bank...

 

Thanks for any tips and advice you may have!

The English John Lobb isn't a great place for browsing. And John Lobb Paris on Jermyn Street isn't really anything special - it's a fairly small store and looks like all their other stores.

On the food side, may be worth to add Dinner by Heston Blumenthal at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge and depending on when you will be here, Apsleys at The Lanesborough (currently closed for renovation until the 4th quarter of this year), one of my favourite

The pubs round that area are nothing to write home about either tbh.
