Umbrella Magazine Issue 4 - Summer 2011

Published on 04 August 2011

There's a lot to be said for telling a good tale. In these days of hi-resolution press pictures emailed directly to your inbox, it doesn't take much to put together a menswear blog full of nice photos of the latest shawl-neck cardigan.

But Umbrella is about much more than that. We believe in the power of stories, and this issue is full of them. Our standout piece examines the Westway, the stretch of elevated motorway in London that's seen riots, gigs and even a separate state appear from under its shadow.

Staying with the auto theme, we uncover the saga behind one of America's most disastrous car launches, the Chrysler TC by Maserati, while a collection of beautiful city maps of the 16th Century illustrates just how much our great towns have changed.

Of course, there's lots more to read – including an extended fashion section – but that's for you to discover at your leisure. Enjoy it.
