Cool! There's not that many proper menswear stores in Helsinki though. The ones worth visiting are Beam and The Men (on the same street) and Beamhill (streetwear version of Beam). Also the main department store Stockmann has some cool brands and might have some decent discounts in January (-50% and extra 20% off on top). Obviously a few sneaker shops here and there as well but I have absolute zero knowledge of them.

I bought a sunspel zip hoodie just before Christmas. I see the drawstring now has metal end caps and is not just tied in a knot as their hoodies were 3/4 years ago.

Fit looks alright for an overcoat. Like the colour. What is it?

APC wool 'Ville' mac

I think it's cut big. In APC's own pictures the shoulder seams are right off the shoulder, but I'm a bit broad. This is a large and I was considering the medium, but there's no way I'm a medium in APC, especially this week!

might be designed to wear over a suit/blazer, in which case you'd want a bit big. keep imo, looks good as is and could work in more formal situations.

Looks a bit sloppy over the shoulders. I think the it looks OK in the other picture because it's been so heavily styled. I think you'd struggle getting to look like that on a day to day basis.

I think oversized on a skinny frame is very different to oversized on a chunky frame!
