Garbstore, which calls their style Unfamiliar Vintage, has been striking us since its inception this Fall/Winter season. By mixing vintage western shirts, technical jackets and smart collaborations, it is probably the only brand out of Europe (we also do not see any by the way in the US), that created something that we usually only see from Japanese brands. Smart adaption of classics.
For Spring/Summer ’08 they give us a little preview, Hawaiian shirts. From most other brands we would not really be feeling the idea, but for Garbstore it just makes sense! Something to look out for!
On a side note, they carry in their online store also Steve Alan and Mountain Research, two great brands, that are pretty hard to come by in Europe.
