Varusteleka in Konala is the largest milsurp store in Finland. If I didn't have any cold weather shit I'd go there first. Their own line has baselayers and shit from merino wool. Staff is good too, if you address your problem there you're guaranteed good service. I also thrifted a lot of stuff from Toinen Kierros-thrift shop. It's actually in Espoo but it's pretty close to the central Helsinki so it's not bad at all. It's also in the same building as the Tapiola's Stockmann. They usually have a few racks of stuff at steep discounts after the sales are over. Bought an YSL tie there for 20€
>>10893107 this is a really good list, you should at least be able to understand the style and brands sections on there. also don't forget that milsurp mecca Varusteleka is also located in Helsinki. If you have questions I'm pretty sure that you will get answers on ylilauta /fa/ even if you ask them in english.
>>10893176 I think it's because people get introduced to 4chan through Ylilauta and start lurking here too because it's just bigger and more active Remember that we invented shitpost culture and everything after is literally guldural abbrobrieison :DDD
>>10894084 >Thinking about moving to Sweden how big is English there? Don't. Pick Norway or Denmark instead. Sweden is probably not going to be around for much longer. All the Scandi countries have good if not "perfect"(by the rest of Europe's standards) English.
>>10894102 >xD You're a fucking retard. Everyone here in Denmark is both angry and afraid what happened to Sweden would happen to us, which is why we're tightening everything up and the foreign-'hostile' parties are receiving more support. You can take your liberal faggot views back to /r news or wherever the fuck you go and stay there.
Not Nordic, but I'm in Alberta and the temperature gets down to -40 and lower sometimes. It's really not that bad desu, you get used to it pretty quick. Just layer, and get a decent coat and a relatively warm pair of jeans and you're fine.
>>10893076 Oh shit that's from the fucking condom video isn't it
>>10894084 bruh dont listen to these fools. moved to sweden for 6 months (still here) and the english is perfect. you can even work with knowing swedish (though it is slightly harder to find work). gothenburg is friendly
I live in Oslo and most people wear Canada Goose and the wealthy trust fund people have Monclers.
I visit Helsinki and Stockholm every now and then. It is just as cold there as it is in Oslo so you will need a down (feather) jacket when it gets really chilly. Thermal layering is mandatory under -20 celsius.
if you want really high quality items there is a shop called Fere in the center of Helsinki, and Manglani which is ultra expensive. I visited the latter to buy a Loro Piana jumper, because Helsinki is the only place in northern Europe where you can buy the brand.
When March and April approaches you can probably use a light nylon jacket. The temperature is 5 to 10 celsius and starts feeling pleasant.
>>10899205 Yeah leather boots are fine. If you're buying new I recommend combat boots. Get unlined ones and size up. Next step; Woolen socks. Everyone in Finland has atleast one pair because every single finnish grandmother knits. Said grandmothers also sell these in fairs and commonly in thrift shops as well. Get a pair or two. The combination of unlined boots and woolen socks are great since you've got two layers of socks reducing abrasion. Wool also handles your foot sweat wonderfully and since you can take them out of the shoe as soon as you stop wearing the shoes they dry out faster. Pic related, my pair
>>10899471 Wolverine steel toed combat boots. They were issued as work boots I think. Tough to break in and the sole is hard as fuck and has hardly any traction on hard or icy surfaces. Wearing these as I don't have a clue where I might have put my czech m60 boots.
>>10895665 this. A coat that covers your ass is much warmer than waist length coat. Well designed (faux) fur collar is also nice if you have to wait for a bus or something and its windy and snowing at the same time, and. Usually its just one or the other in Funland.
>>10899859 Kaliningrad? Yeah they have plenty of stuff there, gives good coverage of the Baltic sea.
>>10899205 >>10899457 I've walked a few kilometres in sub -30C temps with unlined leather boots and woolen socks, no problem. Most of the winter I just use some beater NB's, warm enough for general city use, and with good leather protector spray they survive the slush and snow well enough. Pay attention to the sole though, some kinda commando style sole is nice for winter.
