Together with Bloomingdale’s and Apple Corps Ltd, London Undercover celebrates 50+ years of Beatlemania in the USA. As part of a capsule collection with designs from the likes of Burberry, Drake’s, Paul Smith, Turnbull & Asser, we have designed 6 exclusive Beatles Umbrellas. The collection includes 4 Sgt. Pepper umbrellas based on the brightly coloured uniforms worn by John, Paul, George & Ringo on the album sleeve. Each include a Sgt. Pepper’s Drum skin interior.
We have also designed an Apple Umbrella with core interior inspired by the 45 vinyl labels and a Black HELP! umbrella using the original typography.
The Gentleman’s umbrella is hand crafted from a single piece of polished Maple Wood with A Continuous Handle & Shaft and Silver Ferrule Tip. The Industrial heavy-duty framework is built to last with a metal runner with protective ACL Orange fabric. The canopy is made with a waterproof Black Watch poly fabric which accommodates a Bright Orange interior. Complete with a special London Undercover & A Continuous Lean collaboration label.
It’s not often that you come across a new artist as talented as Lianne La Havas. With the release of her first EP, the 21 year old Londoner is starting to turn heads. We caught up with Lianne last month before she flew to LA to complete her album.
London Undercover has teamed up with Michael Williams’ A Continuous Lean to produce this exclusive scarf as part of London Undercover’s new Gentleman’s Scarf collection.
The perfect addition to any men’s winter wardrobe, this traditional Black Watch plaid cashmere scarf with orange coloured reverse, is the first release in a multi-part collaboration between ACL & Co. and London Undercover. The limited-run two ply 100% cashmere scarf is made in England using only the finest quality cashmere.

Any Old Iron is a new men’s boutique in New York’s Lower East Side specialising
in stocking rare and UK-specific menswear. Located at 149 Orchard Street between
Stanton and Rivington, the shop is the brainchild of designer/stylist, Andrew
Clancey and arts-entrepreneur, Christopher Melton.
The shop’s name is rooted in the olden cry of a scrap man collecting metal with his
horse and cart, and also hearkens to Clancey’s family scrap metal business which
was founded in 1872. “Any Old Iron” is also an Old English music hall song which
references a young man’s sartorial dandyism – a quality that is distinctly English
and ever-present in the shop’s design and the legion of British designers featured.
The full London Undercover range can be found in store, so pop in and send our best!
