SKAM – Part 5, William
ARTICLE BY MAR, International Coolhunter.
While Season 2 of Norwegian online TV series SKAM had Noora as its main character, one could argue it was a shared season with her male counterpart: William. William is supposed to be the coolest and hottest guy at the Oslo high school the gang are attending. He is also described as a ‘føkkboy’ -Norwegian for ‘fuckboy’, i.e. one who uses girls just to have sex with them and then discards them-. And the guy drives a Porsche. In addition to that, he is the leader of The Penetrators – that, related to celebrating that high school years are over, as mentioned before.
That being said, and without too many spoilers for those of you who might want to give the series a try, let’s just say that William’s character evolves during Season 2.
His style is a mix of cool, simple, neutral colours, mostly white, grey and black. That, and his particular hairdo, which is definitely half of his look. Going back to William’s style, he is rich and that kind of shows, but he still wears sneakers.

He also wears somewhat skinny pants, a very common look in Scandinavia among men, who are definitely into fashion and design or coolness, however you wish to say it.
We also see William some couple of times wearing the colour-specific ‘uniform’ related to celebrating Norwegian ‘russetiden’, overalls in a specific colour, depending on study specialisation – the most common ones are red overalls.
WILLIAM’S NEUTRAL WHITE KNITS / LONG SLEEVES:
Here I’ll focus on one of the items / style that William wears that I particularly liked: his whiteish knit/non-knit long sleeves. While rather simple, they look really soft, a mix between that casual and well-designed look, and something you would just like to live in. Even as a girl. Apparently, this is a part of a men’s fashion trend called ‘bohemian’ and post-hipster.
I also really liked the fact that the neck on William’s long sleeves is wider than usual for men’s tees/long sleeves -note that I wrote wider, not scoop-.
While white was always predominant in William’s style, on Season 2 we see more of this in off-white / light beige, which gives a very neutral, natural, relaxed but neat, clean and uncluttered look. Among the 3 long sleeves he wears on Season 2, I managed to find two of them, and they clearly show William’s rich side: they are from a Scandinavian -Danish- fashion designer brand called Samsøe & Samsøe, not for everyone’s budget. Design is pretty big in Scandinavia in all fields in general, including clothing, so I don’t wonder we see quite a lot of Scandinavian design -budget friendly or not- in SKAM clothing. A lot of the girls’ clothes I found posted on the previous posts are indeed from Monki, Bik Bok and H&M.
Here, the two earthly white long sleeves William wears that I could find:
