    Ive never seen an umbrella with a grey canopy. Sounds interesting.

    It sounds fantastic, actually. If it were gray silk, it would be even more fanastic.

    Bah, silk's overrated. Nice in theory, less enthralling in execution.

    That's exactly why it is wonderful, impractical like good lingerie.

    Let's just say I find the resulting wetness associated with a silk canopy less appealing.

    Good God...you don't actually unfurl an umbrella.

    What's wrong with you?

    Maybe you pull a small sword out of it, but that's it.

    My sword isn't small at all. Full length.

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

    I actually prefer them to the all wood ones. The all wood ones make the umbrella very thick and look kind of arcane on a younger person. How much do James umbrellas tend to cost if they have a metal shaft? I've been buying lots of grey clothing lately and my bright yellow briggs doesn't look very good with it and I can't think of any umbrella makers besides James that do either a dark green or grey umbrella.

    I have several suits that are gray and chacoal. My gray flannel umbrella looks great with them.

    Between my photography skills and the lack of light in the room... hopefully you'll discern the umbrella

    Ive never understood the appeal of whangee handles. Great colour canopy and shine on the hardware though.
