VERY beautiful. How much did that cost? Was it a 'bespoke' item or an existing model?

it is existing model i believe, or a batch order brigg made for a specific store. the red lining is another layer.

i think you can let bespoke it will cost about 50 more.

Did you get that from Sterling & Burke, or in London?

Had to give up on my solid shaft Fox umbrella last night as I was walking home from the station in Brighton. I started off walking through the torrential rain with the brolly up, but as I got down towards the seafront the howling wind really started battering it, and even with it in front of me like a shield, it felt as though it was going to buckle under the force of the gusts. There was a guy with a golf umbrella on the other side of the road, and when I saw his umbrella get torn inside out, I thought I really needed to close the Fox. About 10 seconds later I got hit by a huge gust which blew me backwards, and Im sure it would have damaged my umbrella so I guess I closed it just in time.... Calm today but more storm force winds and rain forecast for the weekend.....

Heavy driving rain and gale to severe gale force gusts here in Brighton today were a real test for my new 10-rib Longchamp umbrella. Although it felt as though it might blow out on a few occassions, I kept it up and just about managed to keep control of it, despite seeing lots of other brollies which coudltn cope with the conditions..... Im pretty sure either of my Briggs would have handled today's weather fairly comfortably, but not so sure about my Fox (which I had to close in similar conditions two or three weeks ago)

The weather has been absolutely dreadful here in Brighton the last few days - endless rain ranging from drizzle to tropical intensity. I feel as though i have had one or other of my umbrellas permanently tied to my wrist. If anything the rain has been at its worst this morning so i had to walk to the office under my Brigg golf umbrella (biggest umbrella available), weairng my long raincape, trilby and long boots. At least the wind is only blustery today (15-20mph) rather than the umbrella-breaking storms we can get, so i was able to keep the Brigg under pretty good control (although its forecast to get wilder later so it might be a battle on the way home.....)

...and still the rain continues - almost constant since my last post a week ago, and I haven't dared leave the house without one of my sturdy umbrellas. The soundtrack of the last few days has been the noise of the rain on my umbrella - sometimes pattering, but mostly battering against the fabric. Thankfully not too windy, apart from Christmas Eve afternoon when I had to walk home from the office without risking my Brigg against the winds gusting to over 40mph - fortunately i was wearing my long raincape that day, and was able to tie the hood tightly around my face and keep my hair dry that way. Back in the office today and the walk in was through torrential rain, so I wore my brown trilby, Burberry trench and long brown boots, and carried my 10-rib brown Longchamp umbrella. Quite blustery, so the brolly needed some careful control with both hands but it didnt feel as though it was going to be blown out of control. Dry at the moment but I will certainly take the longchamp umbrella with me when I go out to get some lunch!!

Does the red interior lining show along the edges when it is furled?
post #509 of 643
any other great brollies?

My wooden shafted Brigg has come in really useful with the snow recently. I was out one day and found it really useful as a walking stick (which Ive never really used it for before). The snow had stopped and I was slipping everywhere in my boots so the brolly was a real help. I'm about 5ft 9, so that takes me to about 6ft in boots, and the 27inch Brigg was just the right size....
