Stockholm Has Become Cold

National poet Orup to illustrate today’s reflection on a Stockholm where the snow gently lay the occasional rest of the weekend. As the cold will also need warmer clothes and the trend of the winter jacket as a status symbol seems to remain so this year.

A few years ago, the North American Canada Goose over Sweden. First, everyone would have the jackets, then had too many jackets and it became the inflation trend. The result was that many ripped off the mark from the jackets to thus prove that the jacket bought for its heat retention qualities and not for the prize and the brand’s sake.

This year’s Goose trend definitely over. Now comes the jacket instead of the arctic fox. Fjallraven Expedition Down Jacket visible nowadays everywhere in Stockholm and is tipped by many as one of this year’s Christmas gifts in competition with flat-screen TVs and iPods.

As residents of northern Sweden, I have had occasion to test the jacket in connection with its own purchases of the winter jacket last year and can only be amazed at the illogicality of this trend. Fjällrävens jacket is tokvarm and excellent for full days of biting cold. As the inner jacket is, however, utterly useless. At Fjallraven own website presents the jacket in polar segment “of challenges in cold climates.” To work and live in Stockholm may be a challenge in itself, but anyone who has ever visited our capital know that this is hardly any polar climate.

Until someone more than I’ve figured that fills the center of Stockholm with walking, cephalopods (similarity between the teenagers with spindly legs sticking out during dunbolstret and the child’s drawing symbols are indeed striking), and if it were crowded before it is nothing against the Christmas shopping season will be experienced in year. Stockholm’s restaurant owners are already concerned about the development since their closets are filled much faster than is customary.
