It’s time to update your wardrobe for the rainy season. A coat for fall is key. But a woolen coat will get soaking wet on a rainy day, and so will your fancy leather shoes. You don`t want to run around town for meetings looking like a Norwegian fisherman in yellow oilskin and tall rainboots. With SWIMS' Eton Mac coat and galoshes you can greet the fall and any kind of weather with great style. Top it with a SWIMS umbrella, and you are unstoppable.
The ultimate business coat
The mac coat is a quintessential part of any man's formal wardrobe. It’s a water-resistant overcoat with buttons, a collar and a formal cut. The first mac was sold in Scotland in 1824, named after the chemist who invented the waterproof fabric: Charles Macintosh. The original coat is still produced today; using the same principles of production that were used almost 200 years ago. So why would we want to SWIMSify it? To make it better, of course!
The SWIMS Eton overcoat is a modern take on the mac. We have improved the formal raincoat in ways that are both visible and hidden. For natural reasons, ours is made with a zip closing; buttons won't keep you dry in the rain. Instead, functional snap buttons add to the evergreen, formal look. The Eton coat is both windproof and highly water-resistant. And it makes you look pretty damn good.
Crucial business attire
The Scandi-Cool SWIMS galosh is a modern take on the evergreen rubber shoe. A galosh is simply a rubber overshoe that you easily slip over your favorite shoes to keep them dry and protect them from dirt. Slip them off upon arrival at the office, a restaurant or a meeting or keep them on! Not only do they keep your shoes in perfect condition, they can also be the icebreaker in an important meeting. Ever heard of a «conversation shirt»? It's a shirt a crazy print that people just can`t pass by without asking you about it. Well, SWIMS' signature orange galoshes are the perfect conversation accessory. People simply cannot avoid noticing them and the same goes for the fresh yellow ones and the cheeky red ones. But don’t you worry, we also make them in discreet stylish colors like black, brown, navy and olive. Find your pair. No matter what color you choose, you have invested in a little piece of Scandinavian design history.
The different umbrella
You are already late for work and the rain is pouring. You empty every drawer in the hallway to find the umbrella, but you can't find yours because you left it under your seat at the movies last week. You end up borrowing your girlfriend’s pink polka dot umbrella and walk out into the rain feeling like a circus clown. That rainy day just got worse.
This will never happen if you own a SWIMS umbrella. Here are some of the reasons why people love the SWIMS short umbrella: A simple push on the automatic button, and the umbrella opens. One more click, and the umbrella closes. Simple genius. Another feature is the steady rubber handle that makes it easy to hold with one hand, even when wet. A third feature is the discrete reflective detail on the waterproof fabric, for extra safety on those dark fall nights.
Our umbrellas are perfect for an urban lifestyle. The sleek city colors will compliment any outfit, and the short umbrella will easily fit in your bag or even your pocket. Not a fan of short umbrellas and want the real deal? In stores, we have long umbrellas as well. With the same reflective details, good grip and automatic open-close function.
These three pieces from SWIMS will simply save the season.
