Let it Rain

It’s usually a mile away from home that you remember the umbrella left behind at the restaurant. Well, Brigg ladies’ umbrellas are good enough to pull a U-ey for. Legendary British luxury goods maker Swaine Adeney Brigg has outfitted real royalty—the brand first received the Royal Warrants in 1893—as well as the movie sort—they made James Bond’s briefcase. Here, the solid, polished hickory handle sits under a 20-inch canopy of nylon or silk, all of which is handmade in Cambridge. Still worried about leaving it behind? Have a plated gold or silver collar on the handle engraved so the finder knows who to call (he probably won’t though). Starting at $525, swaineadeneybrigg.com.
