    How old must one be to use a cane? Im a spry and athletic 22 year old.... but canes look like such a great thing, convenient, stylish, and definatly set you apart. Is it considered complete social faux pas or insulting to use one and not need it? Or just to pimp-like....

    If I were to purchase a high quality umbrella, I'd get a bark ash one like this. It just seems so practical with its texture; and I could only imagine the way the oil from your hands would make it age. Very understated elegance.

    I like it, too. If I get another, then it'll likely be one like it.

    Would any of the umbrella connoisseurs here have an opinion on Twill nylon versus Plain nylon?

    I'm going to order an umbrella from Fox and they only offer twill nylon canopies in Black. All the rest are plain nylon and I want a dark green canopy for the days when I wear brown shoes. Is it a remarkable difference in quality though?

    The staff at James Smith (for a nominal fee) packaged the umbrella securely so I could check it with my baggage. Although British Airways did a number on the package, the umbrella came out of the box with nary a scratch.

    I just received my order from JS and the packaging materials and time that must have gone into protecting the umbrella are already worth the GBP 26 postage fee I was charged...

    Sweet umbrella too [​IMG]

    You guys might be disappointed - I didn't order a wood shaft, simple steel one.

    I like those too. Sometimes you need slim and elegant.
