Gamla stan style

Now that you’ve seen the pictures, I’m sure you’ll be packing your suitcase soon for a visit to Stockholm.

Nobody would mistake me for a fashion maven (quite the opposite), but I am capable of recognizing style when I see it. So here’s my two cents on the masculine wardrobe. Gentlemen: when in Stockholm, lose the necktie. Men here wear button-down shirts with suits or with sportcoats and slacks; guys in their 30s and younger might opt for nice jeans instead of slacks. But seriously, if I were in the Swedish necktie business, I’d be looking for a new line of work.

And baggy pants, shirts with words on them, sweatshirts, shorts – strictly for tourists. Just sayin’.
