Garbstore isn't the first brand to trade in repurposed vintage, and they certainly won’t be the last, but there is a very good reason why the brand stands out in such a crowded field. Garbstore’s garments are set apart by an unparalleled devotion to both the construction and history of their pieces.
The brand calls this blend of vintage materials, historical construction techniques, and contemporary sensibility “unfamiliar vintage.” We think that timeless style and top quality construction make the name a bit beside the point.
The Factory Wear Alpaca socks from Garbstore are a simple masterpiece. Constructed through their long-standing relationship with English knitting factories, the socks were created with Alpaca yarns twisted to create a melange sock sole. It is then finished with a "Factory Wear" hit on the sole in a luxurious cursive for detail.
