The Garbstore Spring/Summer 2018 collection draws inspiration from British coalworkers and the National Coal Board of the 80s. The capsule recalls the old coalworkers uniforms through pieces such as the NCB Work Jacket. It is directly based off the uniform with garment-dyed and enzyme-washed fabric materials to alter the garments from a place of vintage revival. The pockets are also reinforced to secure its sturdiness to match its authenticity.

Some other National Coal Board references accent the Garbstore Spring/Summer 2018 collection on pieces such as the chore coats and matching pants. Colorful embellishments that read "Jungles Shirt," "PEOPLE NEED COAL," and "HIGHLY ECCENTRIC ORBITING SATELLITE" is decorated across sweaters. Another notable piece is the Co-op Trench -- it is short in length, has adjustable ties, packable qualities, and is made with high-density Japanese cotton.
