By their accessories shall thee know them.

I assume that, somewhere — perhaps nestled in the Square Mile, the serious British City Gent still wears his bowler hat and black umbrella and is well adapted for this weather.

The truth, in Vauxhall and Kings Cross, is more colourful though, with brollies of all shapes, sizes, ears, and colours on view. But by far the most common, and most resourceful, is something I shall dub the "London Umbrella" — a free evening paper clutched over the unhatted head.
