If you live in central or northern europe you will be no stranger to the sometimes rather changeable weather. The last couple of days in vienna were quite rainy and cool. And unlike the years before i was totally happy about it. The reason is simple. Some weeks ago i went to Stockholm and finally bought this extremely nice STUTTERHEIM raincoat i had wanted for a long time. Forget everything you know about rainwear. Forget the unnecessarily stupid looking gore-tex, velcro and reflectors that make you look like a misunderstood carnival version of a character from the movie tron. Stutterheim’s classy raincoats finally bring back the joy to rainy weather. Their plain and simple yet phenomenal design is based on the original raincoats worn by generations of swedish fishermen. Handmade in sweden the Stutterheim coats are of outstanding quality and genuine style that will leave you never needing nor wanting another raincoat again. There’s a saying in Austria that there is no bad weather, only bad apparel. No more frustration about wet weather, no more reluctance to go outside into the rain. Once you’re wrapped in your Stutterheim coat it’s time to embrace the melancholy of rainy weather. I could dwell in my fascination for these pieces of brilliance for hours but instead just see for yourself.
