The philosophy of the Garbstore label is richly ensconced in the history of clothing produced after the Second World War and draws influence from what can be coined “Unfamiliar Vintage”, familiar garments that reference the past but with a modern edge.

For example jeans and trousers are tailored with fifties grip tape, all buttons are Tri-hole and sweats and tees follow vintage models. In essence pieces are re-imagined and made “historically new”.

The unfamiliar vintage tone set for the collections will inspire people to imagine that the shoes may have existed or at least been on the drawing board or passing through the sample room in the same company and timeframe as the original.
