#79 of 419 in Shopping in London
Set in a historic Victorian shop, James Smith & Sons offers a vast selection of sophisticated umbrellas, canes, and seatsticks for women and men. This privately owned company was founded in 1830 by the same family that still runs the business. Notice the interior, featuring original dark wood and glass cabinets, which have remained practically intact since 1865. Some of the products in the store are still handmade in its basement workshop, just like in the old days. The shop also provides repair services.
