Umbrellas- Yes or No?
At home I have a big black umbrella in the car. And at least one in the house. Last Christmas I received the gift of one with a yarn/knitting theme. I’ve sat under a golf one at a lacrosse game, but when I think about it, I use them rarely. I’m not sure why but I’m thinking about it. This trip I’ve relied on a hooded rain jacket when I’m out and about in the rain.
I learned in the History of umbrellas – umbrellas have been around for 4000 years! Who knew?

If you are looking into having a Bespoke Suit tailor made on Saville Row in London it takes six to eight weeks according to this GQ article note: “With a bespoke suit, a pattern is designed and made from scratch based on the client’s measurements, often from 20+ measurements involving multiple fittings, and takes considerably longer to produce than a made-to-measure garment. This ensures a precise fit, particularly in the shoulders as well as the posture areas” just no “cheap shoes”
