We have just unpacked our latest delivery of Umbrellas from Fox.

Hand made in Great Britain since 1868 the company was responsible for the invention of the Umbrella during Queen Victoria’s reign (rain).

Still made in the same traditional way they are wonderful things and the perfect accompaniment to a new suit.

I particularly like the “Whangee Handle” which is shown here being made. This was the brolly of choice for “Steed” in the Avengers.

Prices start at $159.00 and we are also offering a Custom Made service on these products.

CAMPBELL LIVE

I love John Campbell. He is a great guy with a potty mouth and a penchant for nice suits, he’s always good to stop and have a chat with and he’s a talented broadcaster 

I hardly ever watch Campbell Live though. There are a few reasons for this; very few have anything to do with him. I have never watched Seven Sharp.

In our family a seated dinner with the kids and mild conversation followed by something pre-recorded on My Sky or (if the kids get their way) Shortland Street rules supreme. It is interesting watching the debate …
