Fall Accessory: The Umbrella

Five guys who look great with an umbrella: George Clooney (as in The Good German above), Gene Kelly, David Beckham, Barack Obama, Justin Timberlake.

    You lost me at Barack Obama…
    If you notice on the publicized picture, a U.S. Marine is holding the umbrella.
    Marines do not hold umbrellas!
    President Bush and President Reagan are always pictured holding their own umbrellas.
    Nuff said.
