About to pull the trigger, I just wish they had a midnight blue or dark navy.

I contacted the store to see if they can.

If you are in the States, you might try Sterling & Burke as well. If you live near DC, they have a new showroom in Georgetown. I had a fine time going through the umbrellas a few weeks ago, and they can do special orders.

They are a little more expensive but they are close to me as I live in Phialadelphia so I may try them.

Cane? Damn, I almost had one.

I recently purchased a Ede & Ravenscroft master's gown on eBay ... advertised as Master's Gown & Cane. I had no idea of this thread or I wouldn't have directed the seller to keep the cane ... which I did even after he assured me it was of more value than the gown.

Oh, I think you mean another kind of cane. Never mind.

Anyone here try a Brigg handle in croc? Would that be too loud?

In the B&S section somone was selling a navy croc wallet and I thought that may make an intereting handle color with a midnight blue canopy. Either that or tan croc would be interesting but possibly even louder.

Any thoughts or does anyone have pictures of such a setup?

Anyone with thoughts on the above setup?

Nothing is louder than PoW or sterling handle. I presume you've checked the extra costs involved, usually deal breaking. Also leather won't last long when exposed to repeated wet-dry cycles which is the case of brollies.

I had not really thought about the longivity issues as I was thinking more about the nasty cold PA rainy season when you can't feel your fingers. I figured that leather would be warmer and provide better grip.

Whangee might fit the bill, provided if it's your cup of tea.

I sent my SAB to a cuemaker who wrapped the handle with ostrich leather. The pros can treat the leather to be 90% water resistant.
