Delve into the fabrics shaping our latest collection in our SS24 Fabric Overview.

100% Recycled PrimaLoft® 100G Insulation

Our Flight Jacket v2 is lined with PrimaLoft® insulation crafted from 100% recycled materials. Renowned for its ability to provide warmth in wet conditions and often referred to as synthetic down, this man-made fabric has its roots in military history. Utilising fine microfiber polyester fibers instead of goose down, PrimaLoft offers superior softness and warmth without adding bulk, resulting in a jacket that is both comfortable and portable.

The jacket's outer layer is crafted from a nepped Weather Cloth, named after the tarpaulin used to shield individuals on watch on the deck or bridge of a ship. This Weather Cloth is cut from Japanese organic cotton and provides wind and rain resistance. The jacket also incorporates several military-spec details, including brass Talon zip fastenings and ribbing at the collar, finishing a garment entirely composed of sustainable and functional fabrics.

Raw Silk Check Shirting

Our Grande Shirt is cut from a blend of a blend of cotton and raw silk check shirting. The silk undergoes a yarn-dying process and is then nepped, giving the shirt its vintage texture and look. The sleeves are stitched using flat-felled machine construction to provide a neat finish. The shirt also features a military-grade brass Talon zip fastening and a chain zip pull at the chest pocket.

Japanese Oxford Heavy Canvas

The Life Vest is crafted from a heavyweight Oxford canvas sourced in Osaka, Japan and features pocket protecting padding and military-grade Talon zips, adhering to the traditional functionality of the silhouette's inspiration: vintage utility wear. It is finished with Air-Tex Lining, a material traditionally used as a technical sportswear fabric, such as for basketball jerseys.

Japanese 'Miracle Wave' Fabric

'Miracle Wave' fabrics are created through a durable wrinkling process, characterised by soft and lightweight textures. This specific textile undergoes wrinkling in Hakusan, Japan, the result of which is a finish similar to seersucker. 'Miracle Wave' can be found across a series of shirts and shorts from this season.

Soft Brushed Twill

The Home Party Shorts from the latest collection are cut from a soft twill sourced in Hakusan, Japan. Coming in a classic gun-club check, the surface of the material is brushed, which give the shorts a soft-hand feel. The single-layer pockets are sewn together using a single felled reconstruction method, ensuring that the shorts retain their exceptionally lightweight design.

Slub Military Cloth

Garbstore's Wide Easy Pant from this season are crafted using a reproduction of USMC uniform slub cloth which has been enzyme-washed for a softer feel than its original military-grade counterpart. The trousers retain several elements of military functionality through a vintage, French, hook and eye fastener and a pop-button adjuster at the hem.
