Ladies Fox Umbrella, Handmade British Classic. Gil&hellip by FOX Umbrellas
1 of 2 people found the following review helpful
If you want a 'fashion accessory' then this product might just be for you, if however, you want an actual umbrella I would suggest (from personal experience) to think again before shelling out your hard-earned cash on a Fox umbrella.

If you visit the Fox website in addition to claiming to be 'The World's FInest Umbrellas' - (why hasn't Trading Standards challenged that one?) they will seduce you with iconic images of the 'Best of British' and eras gone by, they will carefully imply, nay suggest, that buying one of their 'handcrafted' products (define terms) made at the bench of one of those faceless grubby-handed artisans they show in the slideshow will serve you long and pay… Read more

Still Much to Offer Contemporary Society

I arrived at Marcuse as a result of reading Terri Murray's 'Black Mirror Reflections' in issue 97 (July/August 2013) of Philosophy Now (pp42-44). Although Murray's introduction was perhaps somewhat interpretive, it nevertheless sparked an interest in the Man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding product, 15 Dec 2013
I owned a version of these in Japan which weren't bad (nothing like as good as these, though!) and I though I would give them a go here. The first thing to say is that these have a much better selection of brushes, fine, medium/bold, wedge. The fine is very fine, the med/bold is surprisingly versatile and the wedge is great for the rest. The amount of water they hold is about right, also the weight distribution and balance is good, and the caps are thankfully wide enough to not trap the brushes every time you replace the cap.

I recommend you use these with the Staedtler 'Noris Club' water-soluble pencil crayons and I can't imagine how you couldn't be impressed.
