    Hi guys, I'm looking for my first umbrella and i need some advice, I'm looking in 200$ range, good quality and international shipping is very important. I wanted to get aquascutum or this one from Howard Yount but the shipping price is too high, what suggestions do you have?

    I believe Talarico makes for HY. Where are you located that shipping is too high?

    I don't know about Aquascutum, since it went belly up and then sold to some Chinese investors.

    Howard Yount carries awesome umbrella, rebadged Italian made ones that are quite nice.

    Just suck it up with the shipping. Don't be a cheap ass whining about the price for luxury. It's the price you pay for not living in the great country

    Armenia. Oh i'm sorry i've mistaken HY for another site which costed around 90$ to ship.


    Well if i'd see something that i'd really like the shipping price won't be a matter. :)



    So what about aquascutum quality? or should i go with HY?
