Who to trust but the English when it comes to keeping dry. This handsome, slim umbrella features a strong, lightweight metal shaft connected to a sturdy 8-rib frame. As with all Fox umbrellas, this durable frame creates a drum-tight canopy. What makes this umbrella special, though, is the details: an immaculate Malacca handle featuring solid Sterling silver nose and collar fixtures. This is an umbrella of the utmost refinement. Fox Umbrellas was founded in 1868, when Mr Thomas Fox began selling umbrellas out of a small shop front in central London. While Fox disappeared completely in 1880, his namesake, Samuel Fox (no relation) was the first to develop a satisfactory steel rib structure for umbrellas. Samuel Fox worked closely with the new owners of Fox Umbrellas, the Dixon family, to create a standardised, reliable umbrella. Having manufactured parachutes for the British Army during World War II, Fox Umbrellas incorporated nylon technology into umbrella making, replacing the more expensive and fragile silk canopies. Having revolutionised umbrella making, Fox Umbrellas are now famous for their frames and canopies that are so tight that they rumble like drums when it rains.
