Stutterheim raincoats at Aplace. Hand made in Sweden and individually numbered. For anyone who doesn’t want to look like a sad golfer in town, here’s a rain coat for you. Plain, simple and understatedly stylish, it¹s an updated version of the traditional raincoat worn by generations of Swedish fishermen (and the odd grumpy film director) until it fell into oblivion when rain gear became a thing of the sportswear industry.
Now we’re bringing it back into the light, or rather, the water. Based on the original patterns from the 1960’s (founded them in a barn) and manufactured in the city of Borås, long the centre of the Swedish textile industry (until production moved overseas and factories closed down), it¹s the only rain coat you’ll ever need. Whether you’re about town or in the country. Whether it’s a drizzle ora downpour. Whether you’re battling with the forces of nature or just your own demons. Aplace is the only store in Stockholm that stocks Stutterheim.
