For the Over-Protective

Bringing new meaning to the expression ‘dry on the outside, warm on the inside’, the Malacca Flask umbrella not only keeps the rain off but, by virtue of its screw-in drinking flask, it also helps maintain the inner man in the most miserable London weather.

In business since 1750, and receiving the first of its many Royal Appointments in 1893, the company that started as Thomas Brigg and Sons is synonymous with traditional British style: clubland, Guards officers and the City. In addition to umbrellas, the company is also well-known for traditional, bridle-leather briefcases and luggage.


With its countless small shops and boutiques, London is an ideal venue for Christmas shopping: but where can you find the really special and unusual gifts? Classic Driver is out and about in the Capital, and will be suggesting a new gift idea every day.
