As the old adage goes, April Showers bring…May Bank Holidays! Okay, we know that’s not really it. But we here in the UK know that spring is unreliable at best and basing all your high hopes on weather is risky.

These crushable styles are really handy when the spring weather isn’t all sunshine and flowers. For the ladies, we recommend a Bailey Pork Pie.
