SLOW FOOD SATURDAY
KRUKMAKARGATAN, 24 NOVEMBER
Four fashion shops and a literature-shop, all located on Krukmakargatan, has invited four restaurants and a coffee shop slash roastery from the region to jointly create a pleasant experience with a focus on well-cooked, slow cooked food (slow food) and tailored and sustainable fashion. Saturday, November 24th is now known as Slow Food Saturday. Between the hours of 12-16 the restaurants Sjögräs, Steam, Södermalms Delikatesser and Tjoget together with Johan and Nyströms Kafferosteri will offer slow food and drinks inside the stores of Nitty Gritty, Nitty Gritty Grit Girl Store, Our Legacy, Papercut and Uniforms for the Dedicated.
Beyond Sofo, Millennium walks and plain chilling at Medis, there is a part of Södermalm that during almost ten years now has grown older, stronger and braver. The area extending from Mariatorget and all the way down to Hornstull is a driving and an entrepreneurial spirit that has during the years given birth to shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, theatres and hotels. Here you will find commitment and core values and a long-term thinking with a focus on sustainability and quality. We believe that more people would like what we do if they only knew that we were doing and have therefore created the Slow Food Saturday.
NITTY GRITTY IN COLLABORATION WITH STEAM
Nitty Gritty in Stockholm was founded in 1991 as a reaction to the increasingly homogenised clothing store chains that dominated trade in Sweden at the time. We value each product as much as we value the strength of its brand. Today we have one women’s store, one men's store and a online shop where we offer men's and women's clothing, shoes, accessories, skin care and fragrances in a unique mix that constantly interpret the signs.
Steam serves dumplings, Asian-inspired soups and salads prepared with their own recipes and flavours as clean as possible. The raw materials are carefully selected and all that is served should be as fresh, locally grown and fairly as it can be.
NITTY GRITTY GRIT GIRL STORE IN COLLABORATION WITH SÖDERMALMS DELIKATESSER
Södermalms Delikatesser / Delikatessen Bistro Bar is housed in what was previously one of Stockholm's oldest fire stations from the late 1800's. The focus is French, and here you can enjoy classic French bistro dishes for both lunch and dinner.

OUR LEGACY IN COLLABORATION WITH SJÖGRÄS
Our Legacy was founded in 2005 by Jockum Hallin and Cristopher Nying. Our Legacy currently operates two stores in Stockholm, a shop in Gothenburg and is found in approximately 230 of the best fashion boutiques around the world. The men’s collection of Our Legacy combines the seriousness of a 90th century business look - confidence in sharp cuts - with the soft likes of artist - aesthetically experimental and emotional.
Sjögräs creates honest, well-prepared food from the classic French cuisine with a spice of Swedish influences. In addition to serving food from both sea and forest they carries Northern Europe's largest rum selection. Over 18 years Sjögräs has housed Södermalm and has become a well known classic among Stockholm's restaurants
PAPERCUT IN COLLABORATION WITH JOHAN & NYSTRÖM
Papercut provides a personalized selection of international magazines, DVDs and books. You'll also find gift items such as Penguin products. A perfect blend of inspiration and pleasure. In short, a deli counter for the popular culture enthusiasts.
Johan & Nyström founded his coffee roastery in November 2004. It all started with a bunch of passionate coffee enthusiasts who wanted to change the Swedish coffee culture and convey a sense of craftsmanship, exclusive roasting techniques, more fun, and just more and organic coffee.
UNIFORMS FOR THE DEDICATED IN COLLABORATION WITH TJOGET
The brand Uniforms for the Dedicated has shaped a name and expression by combining playful design with environmental awareness of products and projects in fashion, furniture, music and film. Creative Processes coloured by a passion for the previously unexplored combined with a focus on contemporary craft and quality, this with the ambition of creating timeless products for the inquisitive gentleman.
Tjoget consists of three parts; the restaurant Linje Tio is one of those. Linje Tio’s goal is to take their guests on a continental trip through southern Europe. Chef Daniel Gustavsson, formerly Gordon Ramsay’s in London and head chef at F12 in Stockholm, interprets Uniforms for the Dedicated by a warm merger between the French Riviera and Stockholm autumn. Slow cooked, of course.

Boho stylish New York gentlemen and Italian candles…
The first time we lay our eyes on Daiki Suzuki’s Engineered Garments we fell for the intelligent design that pervades pretty much through all pieces (and that's quite a few…) in the collection and they can also be mixed and matched together eminently. The potential numbers of unique looks seems endles
Learn from the past, think of the future
We like to tell stories, and listen to stories; we like to engage in small talks with our customers about their everyday life, about music and about style. We like to share our thoughts because we think that they can help people understand why we buy the brands we do and how we experience and interpret the style we convey at Nitty Gritty.

That Summer Feeling
“When the cool of the pond makes you drop down on it When the smell of the lawn makes you flop down on it When the teenage car gots the cop down on it The time is here for one more year And that summer feeling is gonna haunt you One day in your life….” We are about to hit that time in the calendar when you put your raw denims on hold and make some space on that most reachable shelf in your closet for Chinos and shorts. Tropical wool, linen blends, light twill and poplins are all classic favourites of the summer wardrobe, for grit girls as well as for guys.
Nitty Gritty by Oscar Jacobsson
There are people in the fashion industry claiming that there is no future for traditional formal menswear, we think that is a saying with modification. What we do know for sure is that the acceptance for dressing more casual, even in business areas that 10 years ago demanded a daily suit and tie, are higher today.
Bedwin & the Heartbreakers
At our weekly meeting the other day we had a discussion regarding this weeks Nitty News and the story about Japanese brand Bedwin & the Heartbreakers. A brand that all of us in the Nitty Gritty Crew really like and wear but in many different ways
