6 Scandinavian Raincoats You’ll Want to Wear Every Day

Daily Crush: British-Inspired Raincoats by Stutterheim

The raincoat is an indispensable closet staple that can all too easily skew frumpy instead of fashionable—which is all the more reason to invest in a statement piece that can keep you dry year-round.

In our hunt for the perfect rain jacket, we started in a region that’s known for unforgiving weather: Scandinavia.

From the classic, minimalist Stutterheim coat to the street-ready Rains jacket, the options below are designed for performance and look just as chic in the great outdoors as they do in the urban jungle.

Based in Stockholm, Stutterheim brands itself as offering «Swedish melancholy at its driest.»

Far from combatting the rain, Stockholm brand Stutterheim relishes the gloom, selling minimalist coats with the tagline «Swedish melancholy at its driest.

» Founder Alexander Stutterheim found inspiration for the coat’s classic contours in his grandfather’s old fishing jacket, and the accompanying emotional resonance of pensiveness, wistfulness, and creativity.

The company’s offerings are a clean, contemporary take on the traditional rain jacket, made from premium rubberized cotton for a satisfying drape and a silky, smooth texture. We were struck by the heavy-duty, yet elegant, material, and impressed by the coat’s versatility, as the generous cut allows for layering throughout the seasons.

Best raincoats for surviving a British downpour

Daily Crush: British-Inspired Raincoats by Stutterheim

There are a handful of menswear items that are essential tenets of all masculine wardrobes – a hefty selection of high-quality raincoats being one of them, especially if you live in the UK.

Though men's raincoats are a primarily practical piece, that’s not to say that they shouldn’t be stylish too. You need only look to the silver screen for proof.

From Humphrey Bogart’s cinch-waist trench in Casablanca to Christian Bale’s transparent mac in American Psycho to Harrison Ford’s caramel topper in Blade Runner, the raincoat is an unimpeachable lynchpin of superbly masculine style.

Here, to help you pick your own raincoat – and to help you wear it properly – is our edit of the best out there, plus a couple of styling tips to see you through any deluge.

1. Top off a two-piece with a trench

Make Hedi Slimane at Celine and team your classic trench with a super-slim-cut suit. Your trench should be stone or caramel, your suit should be slim-cut and ideally navy and the belt of your trench should be tied – you want to keep your silhouette as slim as possible, after all.

2. A single-breasted raincoat is an easy route in

A single-breasted style is your best bet for an easy-waring waterproof. Though you'd do well to keep the shell of your coat simple, bring a bit of life to the look by opting for a coat lined in a bold, bright print from a brand such as Versace. Team with a patterned shirt, some slim black trousers and an excess of jewellery to help banish the grey.

3. When in doubt, leather’s a shout

Leather trench coats were everywhere last year, and remain a stylish and waterproof option for downpours to come. Opt for something close-cut, black and high-shine for optimum high-fashion effect.

Shop GQ’s pick of the best raincoats for men…

  • Our go-to brand for raincoats? It’s got to be Stutterheim. The Swedish label has been crafting premium rainwear for over a decade now and the designs get better by the year.

    Our current favourite has got to be the Stockholm raincoat; with its rubberised fabric and bright yellow shade, this one will help you battle the miserable weather with serious optimism. £200.


  • A brand hailing from the “Cottonopolis” that is Manchester, Private White VC is a pin-up of “Made In England” menswear.

    Available in three versatile colourways, it's a winning combo when it comes to dressing for unpredictable-looking clouds. £210. Atkits-london.com

  • OK, so a raincoat must be first and foremost practical, but who’s to say it can’t be super stylish too?

The weather won’t know what’s hit it. £1,410.gucci.com
