A forgettable-looking umbrella is often treated accordingly, leaving you completely unprepared the next time it rains, as that's when it's easiest to sneak up on and machine-gun Michael Keaton. Blow him away with your dapper style instead, with London Undercover.
From a Brit designer who presumably knows a lot about crap weather, LU treats the umbrella as a "canvas for expression", creating smartly patterned, functional rain-retarders using recycled materials in keeping with "British ecological ideology", meaning they'll be super apologetic if opening yours up accidentally destroys an entire gulf ecosystem. Styles include the single layer "Premium One" series with beech wood shafts and a variety of red/green/beige tartans, "Premium Two" double layer joints including one with a vintage London map on the underside, and the denim "Tenue De Nimes" with an internal cotton flower drawn by a famed Japanese illustrator, as well as one rocking an underside print of tessellated squawkers called the "London Pigeon", also the name for an NFL expansion team where everyone does the Dirty Bird. Non-"premium" series numbers include the double-layered "DPM Bamdazzle" with a natural bamboo/whangee handle and erratic, zebra-like stripes, "The Commuter" with a maple handle, navy pinstripe suit fabric exterior, and underside pattern pulled from the seats of '70s London buses, and one adorned with pages from the city's Daily Mirror from a series called the "Slim Walker", also a role played by famed bulimic actor Up-Chuck Norris.
For remaining jaunty even on dry days, they've also got a few handsome duffel/commuter bags and cashmere "gentleman's" scarves, and're planning to drop swanky hatting like a "Pigeon Bowler", which unlike a Penguin bowler, won't be adequately prepared to strike.
