You can find some incredible stuff in attics: your grandfather's old army uniform, Alpha Flight comics from 1992, and, if you trust Shel Silverstein, lights. For more incredible stuff that got its start upstairs, check out Stutterheim
Born in an ambitious dude's Stockholm attic, Stutterheim turns out trend-enduring, high-end rain gear modeled after an original coat worn by Swedish fisherman in the 1960s, and then updated to create a simpler straight-cut wearable without any Velcro, reflectors, straps, or Gore-Tex, presumably invented by the guy who came up with the internet... plus Mark Teixeira. Rigorously tested to hold up in a storm (on land, at sea, or in fjords), Stutterheim's signature water-proof Arholma jackets (available in sooty black and dusty white) are handsewn by one of three next-level seamstresses on staff (thus the $500 price tag), who actually sign and date every finished piece, which would've made things a LOT easier for McNulty and Bunk in The Wire's first season. Offering an alternative to the the waist-length Arholma, Stutterheim will launch a new, lighter, thinner, knee-length raincoat in April -- that'll be available for pre-order just-for-Thrillist starting today -- called Kapellgränd, named after a street the founder's grandfather grew up on, which is considerably nicer than Kappellhundred.
They'll start to expand the line after Kapellgränd, with a matching Beppe rain hat set to launch around the same time, plus this summer they'll rerelease 300 slightly altered deadstock rubber boots, which'll help you navigate wet terrain, even Where the Sidewalk Ends.
