When it rains, your umbrella can have as much impact on your style as your jacket. Think of those gents across the pond. You think any self-respecting Londoner buys one of those $5 mini-umbrellas from a guy on the street? No, the Brits take their rain gear seriously and so should you. Whether it's for dodging a mid-winter snow storm or the upcoming spring showers, equip yourself now with proper protection that's as stylish as it is substantial. Roomy enough to share with a lady, tall enough not to forget at a restaurant and, if you're feeling jaunty, bold enough to showcase your taste. Of course, there's no shame in a simple black brolly. Especially when it's under $20.
