The Dandy French Style Umbrella is an essential accessory for a man unduly devoted to elegance and fashion in dress and appearance…

Classic Dandy style elements include items like a trench coat, cuff-links, blazers, scarves, and well-tailor pants. Depending on the occasion, you may also find elegant hats, gloves, vests, wing-tip shoes, and of course umbrellas!

The history of umbrellas umbrella dates from the early 18th century. The first folding umbrella was created in 1705 by Jean Marius, and in 1759 Mr Navarre invented the umbrella-cane. Paradoxically, the English shun this accessory, supposed to mark a lower social class or a behavior contrary to military discipline. In the beginning, the umbrella blades were made from whalebone, a flexible and resistant material – like the reinforcements sewn into women’s corsets. The too fragile parasol silk is quickly replaced by oiled taffeta and then by alpaca, which is light and dries faster. Some people claim that the umbrella, widely used in the 19th century, contributed to prevent many diseases from persons directly exposed to the rain and therefore allowed the lifespan of the working classes to be extended.
In France, the umbrella industry headquarter is mainly located in Aurillac but a family-run manufacture is also located in Burgundy. The first manufacture was founded in 1852 in Autun by a native of Aurillac who had the idea of making a metal frame and ribs… before massive and low-cost production was transferred to China.
