Couverture & The Garbstore Review
Strict Rule Number One: Only stock clothing that is independent, original and unique.
Strict Rule Number Two: Strongly believes in good quality clothing focusing on the fit and feel of the garment.
Strict Rule Number Three: Working together with their suppliers to fight against the corporation.
As long as you believe and abide by these strict rules towards men’s fashion then I’m convinced that Couverture &aamp; The Garbstore is the store for you.
The lower ground level of the Notting Hill store is home to Ian Paley’s menswear brand “The Garbstore”. The former Paul Smith designer draws inspiration from the history of clothing after the Second World War, taking items from our heritage and giving them a modern twist. The menswear label has become known as “Unfamiliar Vintage”, due to their restoring and reworking garments with original trimmings and opting for classic Talon and Scovill zippers.
The Garbstore Denim collection offers the finest, high quality denim available – sourcing material from Western Japan. Manufactured to an exceptional standard, it ensures a great fit and a long lasting shadow blue colour.
Following the strict guidelines of stocking unusual, independent clothing, Couverture & The Garbstore sources innovative casual international labels. French label Arpenteur offers a selection of traditional sportswear inspired from the 1920-1950 eras, and high quality, crafted shirts from American brand Gitman Bros and vintage obsessed brand Human Made are just a few labels that make up The Garbstore family.
I think time for you to momentarily travel back in time, be transported to the future and then land firmly on your feet back in The Garbstore; taking home a piece that is historically new – a heritage classic with a glimpse of the future. Remember to follow the strict guidelines, as who knows, you may be quizzed on entry!
