Garbstore Loopwheels a Comfy Set of Kimonos

The first time I saw the label for The English Difference, I thought I must have happened upon some amazing deadstock vintage. Loopwheeled fabrics and vintage details reinforced my suspicions, but what I’d actually discovered was a sub-brand of Garbstore.

The English Difference lives up to their name by reinterpreting that most classic piece of Japanese fashion, the kimono, in a 100% cotton, loop-wheeled fabric. The lightweight fabric and English-inspired detailing makes the erstwhile kimono into a comfy cozy cardigan, perfect for layering, or wearing on its own while you cosplay Mr. Rogers. Brands are constantly falling over each other to reinterpret the kimono with invariably poor or clumsy results, but T.E.D. does a great job of fusing two disparate garments into one piece that can easily stand on its own.

The kimonos come in the standard navy, olive, and a particularly excellent yellow.

Available for $315CAD (~$240USD) at Lost & Found.
