Gents: Were you digging rising men's stylist Manny J's dapper duds last week? If so, here's yet another stellar offering joining the ranks of LA's stylish menswear scene. Jumping over from across the pond is London-based retailer Garbstore, which is bringing its vintage vibes to Neighborhood Case Study's West Hollywood showroom.
Catering to active urban men who enjoy a history lesson with their clothing, the brand offers its own collection of post-WWII-inspired men's merch designed by Ian Paley, who's done stints at Burberry and Levi's. In addition to Garbstore's gear, expect to find apparel, accessories and more from around the globe, like smart shirting from Gitman Bros. Vintage, activewear from NY-based Outdoor Voices, sports goods from Palace Skateboards, footwear by Eastland Shoe Co. and much more.
Garbstore Case Study is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 9pm; Mondays are appointment-only.
