I have bought a few of these umbrellas, for myself and as gifts.
They are a large umbrella, without being quite as large as a golf umbrella, but you can still use them out shopping without taking over the whole pavement. I also feel that the 16 ribs makes them feel more substantial and luxurious.
This one is a gift also. I am pleased with the colour - a change from the usual navy or black as a dark colour for the gentlemen too.
I'm sure I will purchase this style again.
