Back In Stock: Stutterheim Raincoats

Completely unfazed by heavy rain, thunderstorms and blustery winds, Swedes certainly know how to brave the worst kinds of weather. So it comes as no surprise they make the best raincoats. We are pleased to report the one and only Stutterheim ‘Stockholm Raincoat’ is back, this season in black, white, grey and burgundy.

Developed after discovering his grandfathers old fishing raincoat in a barn, Alexander Stutterheim set out to create a jacket equally as functional and enduring, with a refined silhouette more befitting of the contemporary Swede. With that, he took his first prototype to the last standing textile factory in Sweden – in the small

town of Borås – where production has since remained. Each jacket is a triumph of traditional manufacturing – handmade with the finest of materials, produced in very limited numbers, and fused together with double-welted seams – not a drop of rain will pass through.

In a classic and minimalist style that mimics raincoats worn by Swedish fishermen for generations, Stutterheim can count Kanye and Jay Z among its fans. The Stockholm Coat is available in sizes for both men and women, while the Öland Cape is one size fits all. Available now at both FABRIC locations! Don’t miss out again.
