I thought I would tell you about my Francesco Maglia umbrella as its been pissing down the last couple of days. This umbrella is a thing of beauty, not just to look at, but to hold & use also. So sturdy...... whilst other umbrellas are being turned inside out this one is like a force-field & you can literally hear the wind & rain howl & spit in frustration as you nonchalantly deflect them away.
Francesco Maglia is an Italian company that has been making umbrellas since 1856, not cheap, but something you will have for a very long time & will take pride in every time you use. I felt pretty self concious the first few times I used this brolley as its that posh, infact its so posh that I have to dress down whenever I take it out.
