Synthetically Artificial Collapsibles.  Collapsible umbrellas of a markedly synthetic construction seem to me to be a kind of social democratic extrapolation from the more representatively antichemical kind of straight-handled collapsibles which I would regard as especially sheath-deferential (in antiwatery fashion) and consider to be subordinate to jackets whose fold-in hoods are secured, in typically physical fashion, by a stud, thereby confirming a sort of liberal democratic status.  Thus they suggest, these synthetically artificial collapsibles, a radical proletarian status commensurate, it may be, with rock classical which, despite appearances to the contrary, would be compatible with a kind of state absolutism.
