Grey Market are Finnish, just getting started

by Andy on December 10, 2008


The only time I went to Helsinki when I was walking around I felt as if I was still on the cruise ship rocking from port to starboard, which was very unpleasant, so I don’t really have fond memories of the place. I’m not going to hold it against the Finns behind Grey Market, because from the looks of things, they know a thing or two about making hoodies that are both good-looking and functional.

Apparently the new range is available from their store, Grey Market Supply, but I can’t find it, although I can find lots of other great brands there, such as Sixpack, Upper Playground, & Imaginary Foundation. Hopefully the hoodie above, and the ones in the gallery below, will turn up in the store soon, because they look great.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I like to point it out when I see an interesting hoodie, even if I personally wouldn’t buy it. One of the reasons why I usually wouldn’t buy these items is because they’re made for women, beyond that Volcom hooded blazer that I, shall we say, wasn’t particularly fond of, there just aren’t too many innovative hoodies out there for guys, unless we start getting into the arena of items made for hikers and walkers.

I like this hoodie, the massive hood conjours up images of little red riding hood, and the plaid gives you so many options when layering it with other items. But I would love to know where the hoodie she’s wearing under the plaid one comes from, since the two pieces seem to work well together. It might be this hoodie, but I think that’s grey and has too smaller hood, still, just because I can’t find the picture combo doesn’t stop this from being a great looking piece.

T Bold Plaid Eclair by Triko @ Karmaloop
If I’d seen this tee at the beginning of the HYA ‘journey’ I’d have dismissed it off-hand as a tee for ‘those streetwear people.’ But nowadays I’m pretty open-minded, and even if I don’t have the cajones to wear a tee like this, I do quite like the way that they’ve mixed the traditional side of things (and made it monochromatic too, as if to emphasise just quite how old plaid is) and totally flipped it on its head by laying it onto a pink t-shirt. Its a bit of a pity that they don’t offer this in slightly more… subdued colours for the tee… maybe something in a pastel shade?
