While umbrellas are used and valued by almost everyone who lives in a wet area, they were once thought to be exclusively for women, as they were connected with the stylish parasols ladies would carry on good days to keep the sun off their skin. However, boundaries began to crumble in the mid-eighteenth century, with notable personalities such as benefactor Jonas Hanway using umbrellas at public occasions. Others soon saw the usefulness of the item, and it wasn't long before males were wearing them as frequently as women.
