Lost my Brooks Brothers umbrella. Suitable replacement?

I lost my Brooks Brothers umbrella last night, the $60 tattersall umbrella. It has been very sturdy over many years. Broke once, and I returned it without a receipt and Brooks handed me a brand new one. I'm leaning toward just buying the same one again, but stylistically I could switch it up. Anyone have a recommendation at the same price point?

Buy an SAB from Jamison.

The Brooks Tattersal is the best umbrella for the money IMO.

J doesn't carry SAB anymore in favor of the Italian-made umbrellas. That blackwatch one is super-tempting too, but buying it is just tempting fate because umbrellas often get lost, etc..

It appears the OP and I have met similar fates - I, too, just lost my Brooks Bros. tattersall umbrella. Should I just go ahead and get the BB umbrella, or should I just go ahead and place an order with Jamison.

I feel like purchasing expensive accessories is to ask yourself to tempt fate and not lose them every time you step outside the house with them.
