The English Difference

After the success of our namesake Garbstore label, The English Difference was launched in 2018 with an emphasis on knitwear. It is inspired by vintage sportswear and 1940s military wear. Each piece is constructed using a 1950s loop back weave from fine cotton yarns resulting in a hybrid of sportswear inspired knitwear. Our founder, Ian Paley, thus combines the charm of heritage silhouettes with more casual-leaning athletic styling which translates to high quality, classic clothing.
