5 Umbrellas That Sing In The Rain

Five Umbrellas Worth Hanging Onto

There’s been so much talk about this year’s endless winter that it almost seems cruel to discuss the weather at this point, and yet as we finally begin to thaw out from this infinite freeze, we also enter into Spring’s inevitable rainy season. Without the escape brought by a car, life in the city during the rainy months requires preparation and advance planning not accustom to most men. It also offers the opportunity to a stylish and useful tool like the umbrella. We’ll leave it to The Wirecutter to obsess over price and function, and we’ll focus our efforts on style.

The Anglo Aristocrat by Barbour - Well, it would be gauche to have the pattern on the outside, but c’mon you still want people to know that you’ve been fox-hunting since you were in diapers.
The Lazy-man by Maglia Francesco - For those times when you really need to take a seat.
The Classic by Filson - Because, it only makes sense that the Pacific Northwest’s masters of wet-weather gear make one damn fine oil cloth umbrella.
The Wooster by London Undercover – To match your camo trench, boots, suit, shirt, tie, and pocket square. Bonus: The ACL x London Undercover collab umbrella.
The Royalty by Swaine Adeney Brigg - Well, you might not be Prince Charles, but at least you can buy his umbrella.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
