We are No Nationality. We walk our own path with open minds and without borders. For us challenges, big ideas and strong personalities are important. To experience life and live without prejudice or limits. We make clothes for people like us. We will never be average because we’re deadly dedicated. We love the perfect fit, a unique craftsmanship and we pay attention to every little detail in our clothes, work and life. We don’t like mindless consumption - using and tossing. For us clothes are just like people. They get better with time, and become part of your own history while you wear them. After years they can tell their own story. That’s why we create clothes that stand the test of time. We’re talking about The originals of tomorrow.

WE MAKE OUTERWEAR

TO WITHSTAND ICELANDIC WEATHER Which you know nothing about, until you’ve experienced it. FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE HERE, ON THE BLACK BEACH.

We’re proud to present our newest jacket collection. Extremely comfortable, warm garments jam-packed with hightech functional materials that’ll make your winter the best ever — regardless of whether you spend your winters on Iceland or other cold, harsh places. We know, we know... they look great, too.


Cod (Gadus morhua) In 1758, Linnaeus, a Swedish scientist, classified cod as Gadus morhua. Atlantic cod live in cold, deep water throughout the north Atlantic. Cod is a great food fish — thanks to its mild flavor and dense, flaky white flesh. Cod livers are processed to make cod liver oil, an important source of vitamins A, D, and E and omega-3 fatty acids. It’s good for you.


Geir Hilmarsson

Works on the fishmarket and was a very tall and strong man, handling tons of fish without a break.


SOMETHING IS FISHY

MIGHT BE A SMELLY BUSINESS Our outerwear go through tough tests. WE ASK OURSELVES: HOW DO OUR JACKETS SURVIVE TWO TONS OF WET COD?

Fish smell like fish, despite the clear, clean water that surrounds Iceland. Naturally, they’re wet and slimy. We passed through Reykjavik’s harbor early one morning when a fishing boat docked. While Geir Hilmarsson unloaded several tons of cod, we tried to convince this dock worker that our jackets would keep him warm and dry. He looked at us with skepticism but seemed to agree. As we prepared to leave, he wouldn’t give back the jacket unless we promised to send him a new one after the collection was produced. Even if you don’t work with fish in the winter, we highly recommend Jon for a comfy, cozy, dry winter.


Did you know that fishing and fish processing is the main economic activity in Iceland. Dried fish was used for money in Iceland in 1413. And even if the fish have been around for ages, Iceland was one of the last places on earth to be inhabited by humans.


Helgi Gudlagsson

On his visit to Reykjavik, Helgi became curious about the fishing industry. He just happened to pass us as we took photos of the morning catch. And with a style like his, we just had to take his picture.


Skógafoss waterfall, Skógar, Iceland The Skógafoss waterfall is in southern Iceland on the former coastline’s cliffs. After the coastline receded (it’s now about 5 km from Skógar), the cliffs now parallel the coast for hundreds of kilometers. Together with some mountains, these cliffs create a clear border between Iceland’s lowlands and highlands. Skógafoss is one of the largest waterfalls on Iceland: 25 meters wide and 60 meters high. Thanks to its thick spray, the waterfall consistently produces a single or double rainbow that’s normally visible on sunny days. According to legend, Thrasi Thórólfsson, the first Viking settler in the area, buried treasure behind the waterfall. Years later, a local boy found the chest, but he could only grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again.


A FEW FACTS ABOUT OUR OUTERWEAR OK. Some of you are just like us: nerds about details and facts. So here are some good things to know about our functional jackets. Read. Enjoy. Then head into the rain and cold with confidence.

Here’s a guide to information in our jacket labels — explanations of terms and technologies that make everything work together for you and your comfort. WATERPROOF/BREATHABLE FABRICS. These fabrics resist liquid, such as water, from passing through BUT enable water vapor to pass through from the inside. In other words: rain won’t get in and body moisture gets out. HOW DO WE KNOW IT’S WATERPROOF? Waterproofing gives garments capabilities to resist moisture and water. These capabilities are tested under lab conditions by very serious men and women in white coats and protective glasses. During testing, a oneinch-diameter water tube is sealed with taut fabric and turned upside down. The setup is observed for 24 hours to learn how many millimeters of water the fabric can withstand before it leaks through. If the fabric begins to seep water, the number of millimeters are noted. This notation is called the hydrostatic head, which means: hydro = water; static = not moving; and head = height. To be called waterproof, jackets must be able to withstand 1500 mm of water column. Our technical jackets Jon, Atle and Magne for example has got a water column of 7000 mm. BREATHABILITY. The moisture vapor transmission rate (very fancy words for breathability) is measured by the rate at which water vapor passes through,

in grams of water vapor per square meter of fabric per 24-hour period (g/m2/d). This measurement is called moisture, vapor, permeable (MVP). The higher the number, the better. Our technical jackets Jon, Atle and Magne has got 5000 (g/m2/d). TAPED SEAMS. All seams are taped to ensure that water cannot go through where needles and thread penetrated the fabric. And we’re not talking about the tape on your desk; sophisticated stuff goes onto our seams. INSULATION. Being waterproof and windproof isn’t enough for our jackets. They must also be warm. We produce our jackets with Primaloft® – a fantastic insulating fabric. Primaloft® was developed for the U.S. Army, and it offers many great functions and features. For example, it’ll keep you warm even if the jacket is soaking wet (yes, we know our jackets are waterproof, but once in a while you might fall into a blue lagoon or something). Primaloft dries much faster than jackets lined in goose down. It’s insulation ability is the same as down, but with much less volume. It’s super lightweight, and it has got great ability to transport moisture. And if that’s not enough, it’s also wind resistant. We tested our jackets on Iceland. The wind and rain didn’t stand a chance against our super-duper jackets. We stayed warm and dry.


THE DUFFLE COAT The British Royal Navy helped popularize the duffle coat that was first issued as a warming, camel-colored garment during WW I. Its design was slightly modified and widely issued during WW II. Navy people called it a convoy coat. These coats became popular, ubiquitous garments in the 1950s and 1960s — thanks to reasonably priced, large stocks of post-war military surplus coats that became available to the public. After WW II, a UK company bought a surplus supply of military coats; in 1954, it started producing its own version of the duffle coat, which it still makes today. That’s when today’s duffle style emerged with its leather fastenings, buffalo horn toggles, and double-faced checkback fabric. Every duffle you see in that configuration is a copy of the original from the 1950s.

North America’s 1st tourist LUCKY LEIF FROM ICELAND

We appreciate that others explore the world like we do. Traveling without knowing what they’ll find. This story is about Lucky Leif, who discovered Vinland (North America). Leifur Eiriksson (we call him Leif) was born on Iceland around 970. His dad was the famous Erik the Red. At 29, Leif and his crew tested the waters and sailed from Greenland to Norway. But things didn’t go well. They were blown off course and ended up on the Hebrides, where they had to stay most of the summer. When he did arrive in Norway, Leif converted to Christianity and became one of the king’s men. Norwegian King Olaf Tryggvason told him to introduce Christianity to Greenland, so Leif took off for this big island. Once there, he heard a story from Bjarni Herjólfsson, a merchant who claimed to have sighted land to the west of Greenland. Fascinated: Leif bought Bjarni’s ship, recruited a tough 35-man crew, and sailed west. Leif followed Bjarni’s route in reverse and first landed at a rocky, desolate

place he called Helluland (flat-rock land); we think it was Baffin island. Leif’s next stop was forested, so he named it Markland (forest land), most likely Labrador. Two days later, he reached Vinland (wine land, so named because grapes grew there). Once at Vinland, Leif and his crew built a settlement; later, visitors from Greenland dubbed it Leifsbúdir (Leif’s booths). After wintering in Vinland, Leif returned to Greenland with grapes and timber. On this return voyage, Leif rescued a shipwrecked Icelander and his crew, which is how he got his nickname: Leif the Lucky. We salute you Leifur Eiriksson. Well done! We’re impressed by people who chart their own courses and dare to be different. People who follow their own paths.


We live in the jeans. With the jeans and for the jeans. When it comes to clothing, we’re just as totally dedicated to our denim collection as to everything else we do. We aim to deliver jeans that you never want to take off. Jeans you wear all the time. At your mom’s birthday party, work, school, and play. Jeans you wear on a date and on the occasion of your brother’s wedding. That’s how we look at denim. It’s something you keep for a very long time. A pair of originals of tomorrow from NN•07.

NIGHTLIFE & REYKJAVIK ROCK’N ROLL WE’RE SURE NOW. ICELANDIC PEOPLE DON’T BELIEVE IN A DAY AFTER TOMORROW. THE REAL CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS

We encountered contrasts during our photo shoots: From the literally drained desert in Africa among nomads, to the bubbling melting pot of food culture in NYC, to Ibiza’s sizzling beaches and clubs with their ice-cold drinks. But nowhere – not even on party-island Ibiza – have we met people who can party like Icelanders. A mild mystery: Either it’s because they live on an isolated island with nothing to do. Or, it’s because beer was banned for 70 years and prohibition wasn’t lifted until 1988. Whatever. Never try to keep up with them. They go out frequently – but late at night and rarely before midnight. Then they just keep going and going – and refuse to go to bed. We honestly do not know how long they stay at it. We simply couldn’t keep up.

MUSIC FROM ICELAND: SO MUCH MORE THAN BJÖRK AND SIGUR ROS LEGENDS ARE PART OF ICELAND’S HISTORY; HERE’S ANOTHER ONE. KRUMMI, OUR MODEL, IS A LEGEND.

Of all the places we visited, Iceland is probably where we met the most artists, writers, musicians, and other creative souls. Just like the boiling hot springs around Reykjavik, this city bubbles over with creativity. You can feel the pulsations, and the beat sucks you in. Take Krummi to the right. When we approached him about being a photo model, he was sitting in peace and quiet – drinking a beer at KEX. Turns out he was the front man of a band legend that we quickly looked up online. You’ll find Krummi and his buddies at: soundcloud.com/legend-band/violence. Naturally we also have a link to our site. All we can say is “Listen, enjoy”.


Krummi Bjรถrgvinsson

Musician. Stage-name: Legend. A great guy to know!


WHAT’S FOR DINNER?

COD FISH, HORSE MEAT, AND LOTS OF LAGER. Food and drinks are important stuff here. AND MY GOD, THEY KNOW HOW TO ENJOY IT!

Fish, fish, and fish. That’s what comes up when you say Iceland and food in the same sentence. But it’s far from the entire truth. Some of the best dishes we’ve eaten were served in Reykjavik and Iceland’s countryside. We began this journey just like we finished our last journey: in an Argentinian steakhouse. For sure, a simple fun fact. And while Argentina wins when it comes to steaks, Icelanders are not far behind when it comes to national fare. Its fish is world class. We found horse meat on the menu at a famous grill restaurant, and we savored gourmet cuisine at Harpa, a restaurant in the opera house. The beer selection ranges from small, deliciously dark micro brews to clean, crystal-clear lagers. All the best. In short, go to Iceland. Eat. Drink. Enjoy.


WHAT AND WHERE TO EAT AND DRINK Reykjavik is home to truly impressive places in which you can hang out for drinks, fantastic fare, atmosphere, or the very, very nice people.

Coffee spot number one. PRIKID CAFÉ An exemplary eatery that retained its original 1950’s interior design. This is the place to be for the perfect hangover brunch — if you tried to keep pace with seasoned Icelanders the night before. A must to visit just for the interior decorations. During summer, you can hang out in the graffitidecorated backyard and sip cocktails on warm (well) summer evenings.

Coolest bar and hotel. KEX HOSTEL The boring, bland outside door gives no indication of delights inside.   Three letters are glued to the middle of the door: KEX. Reykjavik’s finest bar scene is three floors up in this grey municipal-looking building. This combination hostel-restaurantbar attracts all the creative souls from the entire island. Its customer proposition is homemade burgers, dried fish, and other delicious tidbits – all washed down

with great beer from Icelandic microbreweries. Don’t miss it.

seafood is grilled in front you, and the traditional dining room. Enjoy.

Where to eat meat. GRILLMARKET This cellar pub is a lot more than an ordinary tavern in a basement. It’s probably one of Iceland’s best restaurants. As its name implies, you go there for tender, juicy, mouthwatering meat. A high-class restaurant with a great attitude, super-friendly staff, and awesome food. Reserve a table well in advance, because many meat connoisseurs flock there.

Play it again and again. HARPA (IN THE OPERA HOUSE) Is fine food like music to your ears? Then we suggest that you take a trip to the top of the terrific opera house, where the Harpa restaurant serves tasty, beautifully prepared gourmet fare. The view over Reykjavik’s harbor is incredible. We recommend that you start with a dry Martini — one of their offerings of expertise.

Fishing for something else? FISH MARKET (FISKMARKADURINN) If you’re not a meat aficionado, then why not fish? The market is in one of Reykjavik’s oldest buildings. The seafood is anything but oldfashioned. Modern Asian-inspired preparation. Very fresh ingredients and admirable dedication to cooking. The market offers several venues: the Raw bar, the Robata grill where

Deep dive bar. GAMLI GAUKURINN Not a place for sissies. Here we’re talking straight talk. Neat and unadulterated. Eiríkur Rosberg, owner and bartender, rules upstairs at Gamli Gaukurinn. When we were there, a slightly faded Icelandic version of the Six Pistols shrieked from the stage. We lulled ourselves with a little Jack D and head banged until the wee Icelandic hours rolled into morning.


Where to eat and drink even more... For all coffee connoisseurs. CAFÉ HAITI Diehard coffee fans: this small cafe near the harbor is an obvious stop for you. Elda, the owner, buys the beans from Haiti, her homeland. She roasts and grinds them on site. Regulars think that Elda produces the best coffee on Iceland. Live music and Guinness. CELTIC CROSS If you don’t like Icelandic “Viking beer”, then get your body over to the Celtic Cross for a pint of Guinness. It’s decorated like a funeral parlor. Live bands play on weekends in the cellar. Cool. Hip. Nifty. gay = glad. BARBARA In theory, Barbara is a gay bar and club. In practice, it attracts Reykjavik residents who love wild dancing. No boundaries.

Lovely symphonies. SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA IN HARPA HOUSE There’s a lot of great music to absorb in Iceland. So why not visit the fantastic Harpa house in the harbor – home to Iceland’s symphonic orchestra? Open weekdays from 9 AM to 5 PM. On performance nights, the office is open until the concert starts. From porridge to fish stew. HRESSINGARSKALINN Known locally as Hressó, this place sports a large open-plan cafe and bar. Varied menu until 10 PM daily.

Its civilized veneer disappears and focus changes to beer, cocktails, and dancing on weekends. Live music or a DJ on Thursday nights. A garden out back facilitates breaths of fresh air.

Feel the beat from 101 Reykavik. KAFFIBARINN 101 Reykjavík, a cult film and bestselling novel, introduced the western world to crazy party nights at Kaffibarinn. Since then, this classic joint thrived on the myth that Blurs Damon Albarn would be one of the partners. Now, Kaffibarinn is among the coolest bars and a natural watering hole for many tourists. It’s also a heritage site: the building at Bergstaarstaeti 1 is protected — but not the small, legendary outdoor seating area. You must be a celebrity (or close) to get an outdoor seat on weekends. During the rest of the week, many artistic souls usually relax here. Read about our friend Halldor: Kaffibarinn is his favorite haunt, where he celebrates his birthdays on the couch. Ultraposh hangout. THORVALDSEN BAR Everything in this understated modernistic bar is ultraposh — from fusion food to clientele. DJs from Thursday to Saturday. Dress code enforced. If you arrive after midnight, be prepared to stand in line. Small dance floor. Theme nights such as Mojito / Salsa on Thursdays.

Scandinavian swanky. 1919 RESTAURANT - LOUNGE In the SAS Radisson Hotel 1919. You get fabulous food prepared with fresh, local ingredients in the restaurant. You enjoy a chic, soothing setting and creative cocktails in the lounge. Floor-toceiling windows give you a view as you relax and enjoy your drinks.

Music Bar. CAFÉ ROSENBERG Café Rosenberg is a popular music bar down town Reykjavík. But it is also a good cafe & restaurant where you can enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, great food and drinks. Rock ‘n’ roll, beards, and beer. DILLON Beer and beards. The atmosphere at Dillon breathes RRROCK and attracts lively crowds. Dillon hosts frequent concerts on the pub’s tiny corner stage. Large beer garden. Unusual DJ Andrea Jon is part of the scene with his flowing white hair that’s reminiscent of a female Icelandic John Peel. Icelandic gourmet fiesta. TAPAS BARINN Ready to challenge your taste buds? Experience tapas the Icelandic way in this very nice eatery. How about starting with Icelandic vodka, followed by smoked puffin (yes, small birds with very colorful beaks), and then fish, lobster, lamb, and whale? Not for everyone – but for the brave and curious.


And while we’re at it, let’s find some more places.

A taste of Buenos Aires. ARGENTÍNA STEAKHOUSE Dark, rustic restaurant. One of the city’s best. An open fireplace creates the atmosphere. Here you enjoy some of the best meat or fish in Reykjavik. Fare is prepared on a charcoal grill. Relax after dinner in the cognac lounge with a hand-rolled cigar.

For the rich and beautiful. REX This high-class nightclub is on Austurstræti 9. Rex caters to an older, richer, more beautiful crowd than the average nightclub. It’s a place in which business is conducted over perfect cocktails. Here, visiting celebrities can party in peace. Brownish-red wallpaper, soft seating, heavy velvet, and polished crystal chandeliers. Newly styled Nordic flavors. DILL RESTAURANT In the Nordic House in Reykjavík: two of Iceland’s leading Nordic cuisine pioneers partner in this small personal place. A meal is an experience in itself. Open for lunch and dinner. Every week a new seven-course menu is set with matching wines.

Get cleaned up while eating. THE LAUNDROMAT CAFÉ This diner-style café has got homemade food, generous brunch plates and—last but not least — self-serve laundry machines. Enjoy a nice meal and wash up your dirty laundry, surf the web. All at the same time. If you are into reading while you’re eating, you came to the right place too. The walls and shelves are lined with more than 6000 books, and loads of magazines.

Dressed to the nines and live music. HVERFISBARINN A trendy bar and club that attracts neat, young, well-dressed customers. Consequently, queues are long on weekends. Live music on Thursday starting at 10 PM. DJs on Friday and Saturday. We fish for some whale. 3 FRAKKAR Icelandic fish is one of the world’s best ingredients, and the 3 Frakkar specializes in making the best out of it. They offer signature dishes for which they’re famous, e.g., salted cod, grilled catfish, fried fish chins, and the famous Icelandic specialty, hashed fish with black bread. Or, why not try their whale pepper steak? Probably one of the best you can get. Don’t miss out on it!

Blues alternates with jazz. Q BAR This might be one of Reykjavik smallest bars. Smart, sleek, minimalist place that was transformed into a gay bar several years ago. It calls itself ”straight friendly” and welcomes everyone. A piece of America in Reykjavik. GLAUMBAR Classic American joint with huge video screens that display various sporting events. On weekends, the music volume rises to thundering heights. Orders, beer, cocktails, and money move across the bar at a fast, furious pace. This watering hole attracts many thirsty night owls on the run-up to wee-hour closing time at 6 AM. A beer and a sunrise, thank you very much.

Beer with mixed ancestry. KAFFI BRENNSLAN An unpretentious, art deco cafe and bar in which quite ordinary personalities mixed with more avantgarde types. The bar attracts a crowd somewhere between ages 20-30. Beautiful range of beers from more than 20 countries.


Did we mention? Icelandic people are crazy – really crazy – when it comes to partying.


THE DEDICATION TO DETAILS

There are a few truths we can’t deny. Like the fact that details make the man. So let’s talk about them a little bit. IF YOU DON’T SEE THE SMALL DETAILS, THEN HOW CAN YOU GET THE BIG PICTURE?

Some call us nerds. Others think we’re weird; they can’t comprehend how we can spend two hours discussing whether or not fabric makes it when it takes it. For us, it’s as obvious as getting up in the morning. We go by gut feelings to determine how details are integrated into garments. Details that consume our thoughts inside and outside the office. Nothing is insignificant. Nothing is left to chance when we design our collections: Pocket positions. Knitting tension and button finish. Leather quality in bags and gloves. Pocket-flap length. And the perfect shade of blue in our new jeans. We know you appreciate these details and that you see the difference between seams with 2 mm stitches and seams with 1.5 mm stitches. Because you read this page, you’re probably just like us: deadly dedicated to details.
