Perfect day for my Moquette Umbrella

It's the middle of June and there's torrential rain in London. Looks like a good day to get out my
London Undercover umbrella.

When I first used it, it turned inside-out in the wind. Wonderful for letting everyone see the moquette design and I wondered whether it had broken. But it is made of really sturdy stuff and quickly turned back into the correct direction

Sadly it's currently out of stock.  But in case anyone thought TfL were about to sue them for using the moquette design the  "Commuter" umbrella was produced in collaboration between fashion brand London Undercover & Transport for London.  (more details from my post here)

Someone not so lucky with their umbrella on the train today was spotted by @Rodwellian

Surprised it's something we don't see more often on the Tube. Thanks Lisa!

Any other London Underground / train / umbrella battles or stories are welcome in the comments. Hope you don't all get too dripped on today and survive the distinct commuter smell of damp/ wet clothing.
