I thought that it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to my latest obsession, Norwegian Rain. I'd seen some of the stuff at one of @gdl203's trunk shows - the "single breasted" specifically, and the materials and workmanship had really impressed me. The designs, while truly well executed, were to me, fairly basic shapes.
Going to Paris, seeing the more directional pieces at Tom Greyhound (www.tomgreyhound.com) and seeing how they could be styled, either as a kimono style, or as a poncho'/cape, or the actual "S-Cape", really blew my mind.
When I got back, I nearly immediate bought my wife a raincho from Norwegian Rain directly, and I'm considering a Rive Gauche from NoMan, so I thought I'd start a brand thread
Here are a few pics to show the styling of a few of my favorite pieces, all taken from the Norwegian Rain official site. I've also included a few pictures with details from Japanese sites to show just how well considered the internal designs are, to boot.
And the Rive Gauche:
Moscow men's coat.
Official site: www.norwegianrain.com, which also does e-commerce.
Affiliate vendor www.nomanwalksalone.com carries the brand: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/makers/makersinfo/view/id/174/
Other US vendors:
Seattle's www.babyandco.com, where I always make a stop when I go visit, also carries a fair bit of Norwegian Rain. If you know Seattle, it's not hard to figure out why: http://babyandco.us/collections/norwegian-rain
For the Canadians: http://us.duewest.ca/collections/norwegian-rain
For those in Japan, there are tons of options, but I like Kink-Nagoya and Silver and Gold
