The fine folks at Style Salvage have a great interview with the man behind Garbstore, Ian Paley. Talking about everything from Paley’s favourite stores to his favourite fashion moments, the Garbstore owner also expands on the current heritage boom.
How has the menswear landscape changed over the years? What excites you about the future of menswear?
Ian Paley: Menswear is cyclical, I remember the last heritage boom, it will end and will end soon. I expect a swing to advanced technologies, this will really bring the big companies back in as it’s almost impossible for an emerging brand to adopt and afford the technologies that will be required to make the relevant product we expect to see in the next few years, We have had our independent swing, it will travel back the other way soon. Change is always good and by then I hope we are in a place where we can explore the more technical sides of our ideas.
