Garb is also used to describe a kind of period clothing that belongs to the pre-seventeenth century. It was worn during the Middle Ages and The Renaissance Period. It is pertaining to the costumes and garments of that era. It includes everything from gloves, gowns, shoes, coats, caveats, hats, caps and bonnets of that period.

It is also the name used for a tied bundle of grain. More often than not it is a reference to a sheaf of wheat. If it indicates any other grain then it is specified. It is a slang used in the area of Cheshire.
