Yesterday while sourcing at the V&A I picked up a Dazed & Confused Ben Sherman Spring Summer 2012 booklet thingy with this dear man on the cover. His name is Moses Manley and he's an umbrella maker. I tried googling his umbrellas but couldn't find them? INTERWEBS HAS FAILED ME. Anyways, I think I have a small crush!

Edit: OK, so apparently he's an apprentice umbrella maker at James Smith & Sons. That solves EVERYTHING!


  1. Moses is a good friend of Andrew Aitchison. He lives in London. You'll find him on his friend list :)

  2. Oh connections hey! Now I feel like such a stalker :)
