    What's up Aus thread used to lurk SF a few years ago deciding to jump in now that I'm getting back into clothing. I dress more casually than most here; the most formal I'll get in everydag life is chukkas and more traditional chinos or dress trousers with a cardigan and chukkas, mostly I'm in bombers or casual jackets with jeans and sneakers (I like upthere in melbourne for example).

    Anyone go down to see D'Angelo on the weekend?

    My umbrella from Muji is pretty solid.

    I had a nice Muji one given to me - its a decent one collapse-able to two lengths and cover to match.

    I see Clifton has clear birdcage umbrellas - that's my next purchase.

    TM Lewin sells some Fox umbrellas for $70, in various shapes and sizes. States they are made in England. Pretty solid, a definite step up in construction from the typical stuff peddled around in shops. I have bought 2.

    Have to disagree with fxh, I've had the same umbrella for 8 years and counting. It's an automatic-opening one, a Clifton, and cost me $40 from Strand Hatters 8 years ago. 10/10 would buy again.

    I'll buy one too - we could stop in the street and have a conversation...
