Not Your Grandfather's Rain Coat

Stutterheim is a Stockholm based brand with a matter-of-fact, problem and solution approach. The problem: melancholic Swedish weather. Their solution: a modern take on your granddad’s raincoat- specifically, the granddad of brand founder, Alexander Stutterheim.

The rubberized-cotton coats pay homage to a 60’s slicker Alexander’s grandfather wore during stormy Arholma fishing expeditions. Disclaimer: those were next level storms. He describes the inspiring piece as, “both stunningly cool and very practical (although as big as a tent).” After a few concise textile updates the current mods are fit for fashion and function.
