Travel Report London

Tags: Menswear

We took a day trip to London the other week to visit our friends at the PR and sales agency “A number of names”. Besides being a bunch of good looking, well dressed, proper pint loving men, they are also doing their best to promote such fine brands as Human Made, Bathing Ape, Bedwin and the Heartbreakers, Ebbets Field Flannels and a number of more names. One of these brands will be a part of the Nitty Gritty brand mix from next season. More info about that later on…

After a smashing Shepards pie and a local pale ale for lunch at the Albion we went to the Drake's showroom which is located above their shop at number 3 Clifford Street just off Savile Row. It a lovely little shop where you'll find their London made ties, Irish knits, Italian scarves and a small selection of well tailord coats and sport jackets.

Meetings done and still a few hours before the flight back to Stockholm we went to do some store checks and started at Libertys just to find that the Our Legacy boys managed to grab the best spot at the lower ground floor where the menswear are presented. Well done boys!

Off to Bloomsbury and the super nice little Lambs Conduit Street to say hi to the Universal Works guys, check out the Folk and the two Oliver Spencer shops and the Private v.c White shop. Proper Manchester produced jackets, outerwear and shoes.

London is really getting a lot of energy back and it feels very inspiring to be there, hopefully we'll be back soon for a number of more names…

London Burning!

Among the things that we value most in our daily work are the relations with our highly appreciated suppliers. Without our strong brands there wouldn't be a strong mix of brands, and we often receive comments about how strong our mix of brands is.

Things that can happen on a rainy day at Krukmakargatan: Nitty Gritty is a destination. We are in the city, but not in the city center. Our two stores are located together with the Our Legacy store, the Uniform for the dedicated store, DOM Hairdressing salon and the lovely little book- and magazine store Papercut.

Seasonal Adjustments

Seasonal Adjustments

Bits And Pieces

Scandinavians as we are, we kind of enjoy when the temperature starts to drop a little in September. Especially after such a long and sunny summer like the one we’ve had this year. Autumn is our favourite “clothes season” and this fall we have a great variation in our outerwear offerings. Whether your everyday life requires a sleek and contemporary coat or you prefer to stay warm and comfy on the inside whilst able to keep rain and snow out we feel confident in the selection of such outer layers here at Nitty Gritty.

Stone Island AW '014'015_Raso Hand Painted Tortoise Shell_ Il Video

Bits And Pieces

The hand-crafted process behind Raso Hand Painted Tortoise Shell is revealed. The garment -made in a satin weave cotton fabric of military origin- is dyed and then faded in selected areas with a corrosive paste. The bleached parts have then been hand painted with a tortoiseshell-inspired motif also polluting the Stone Island badge on the left sleeve. This extraordinary manual process makes each piece unique and unrepeatable.
