The story of Stutterheim
His grandfather was a fisherman often at sea to catch, as he always said, life. Defying the worst weather, loudest of thunderstorms and the heaviest rain. So he had to have the best gear to endure his trips under such conditions. The memories of his grandfather came back to him after finding his old rain coat in a abandoned barn.
"It was just recently that I discovered his old rain coat in an abandoned barn. At that moment, old memories struck me and I instantly wanted to wear his coat. It was both stunningly cool and very practical (although as big as a tent)."
After this discovery, Alexander Stutterheim went out and purchased a piece of oilcloth. Bringing the 60's raincoat back to life, only to fit the modern men and women. Showing it to a couple of friends, responding very excited, he decided to meet up with Johan Käll, the manager of the last standing textile factory of Sweden. Alexander knew then that these were the right people, immediately feeling the click.
To honour his grandfather and to uphold the best quality, the raincoats were made by hand. Each coat was signed and numbered by the seamstress. The first 200 items were made and sold from Alexander's own apartment, just to move to his current location months later.
With a wide range of fits and colours, the Stockholm black is the most popular raincoat available. Hombre offers a broad collection in each store, prices starting from €225,-.
