    Another horrendous forecast for tomorrow. Up to 50mm (2 inches) of rain, and gusts to over 70 mph later in the day. Looking like another day when an umbrella will not be an option. If I can get up to London, I'm hoping to drop my Brigg golfer in for repairs..... will wear my hooded Drizabone and battle the elements in that as a raincoat and hat would be no better than a brolly, and the hat would probably be blown off!!

    Still stormy here on the south coast as it has been pretty much for the last fortnight - the weather has been beyond what I could expect any umbrella to handle with frequent gusts of between 60 and 80 mph, normally accompanied by torrential rain. Day after day ive been relying on my hooded raincape.....

    I am actually wondering if any one has insight on this? on the kent wang site it says made in italy. I know its hard to find Talarico umbrellas even online, so im curious if these are the same, or at least good quality?

    I can confirm with 100% confidence (directly from Maglia themselves) that they are NOT Maglia.

    Side note, just purchased 42 new Talarico umbrellas that should be up on the site by Feb 1 or soon thereafter.

    I'm sure Kent's umbrellas a great, and I have no doubt that they are Made in Italy. They're just not made by Maglia or Talarico. (P.S. Kent's a good friend - so in now way am I disparaging his products).

    Picture I found while touring the company that makes all of the solid-stick canes in Italy:

    Anyone know if/how I can source a full size Davek umbrella in the UK, or do I have to get one sent over from the States? Plus does anyone have experience of how wind-resistant they are??

    Gosh this thread has gone quiet.... Expecting our first real storm of the autumn tomorrow (ex-hurricane Gonzalo) although its a modest 50mph predicted rather than some of the violent storms we had last winter. I had to get my cherry wood solid stick Brigg repaired after it was torn inside out one evening last December, and then my beautiful Longchamp brolly and my 10-rib James Smith also had to be put back together after the winds blew them to bits in January and February respectively......

    In a blower like this its best to go out in a beaver fur felt hat, you can still keep your bits in one hand and the other on your lid no matter the gusts. Not worth risking a decent brolly in a real wind.

    Managed to avoid the rain on Tuesday so my 10-rib James Smith gents umbrella was spared, but I LOVE hats and wear them almost every day in winter. Was wearing my red fedora yesterday and had to keep a really tight grip on that as the gusts were ferocious. I have about as many hats as I have umbrellas....

    Well if its made in Italy its most likely to be Maglia http://www.ombrellimaglia.it/, though there could be other volume umbrella makers left in Italy that aren't online.
