Our Legacy - Krukmakargatan 24
Forget Acne or Norse, for me this is the Scandinavian menswear brand. They focus on simple wearable silhouettes but keep it fresh by using unusual fabrics and the occasional daring pop of colour. They are currently doing some soft terry cloth sweaters and sexy sleek suede over shirts that are definitely worth checking out.
Nitty Gritty - Krukmakargatan 26
The peeps over at Nitty Gritty have some grade A taste. The shop resembles a modern art gallery, a big space with clean lines and the racks are nicely spaced out. The mix of brands they stock is as good as the interior, I know of no other physical shop that can place WTAPS and Arc'teryx Veilance side by side. Be warned it is not easy on the wallet though.
Grandpa - Södermannagatan 21
This is the Swedish urban outfitters, they stock various different Swedish brands not just in clothes but also in stationary and homewares. Really friendly laid back staff too! A great place if you don’t want to hit up loads of different shops but still want to get a range of Swedish bits and pieces.
Papercut - Krukmakargatan 24
The world's greatest magazine shop bar none. They've got magazines for all interests and the obscurity of some of the titles is mindboggling.
