Staying up to date with all the latest fashion brands is no easy task. One day your favorite brand can be the hottest name out there and the next it can fall from the face of the earth (or at least from the internet). Of course, nothing stays in fashion forever, which is why we decided to round up all our favorite menswear brands of 2016. While there are many more brands out there that we love that didn’t quite make it on the list (e.g. adidas, Patta, Tom Ford, etc.), here is our A to Z guide of all the current brands that everyone here at the office can’t stop raving about.

Here we go.

A is for Antisocial Social Club

Known as the new kid on the block, they got “hypebeasts” going crazy for their merch. Did I forget to mention Kanye & Future have been spotted wearing ASSC.

B is for Balmain

Lets face it, Olivier Rousteing is killing it with his designs.

C is for Common Projects

The best shoes on this side of the Milky Way—seriously.

D is for Daniel Wellington

When it comes to investing in a watch, opting for a classic and stylish analog timepiece is always the right decision.

E Is for Ermenegildo Zegna

Let’s do the math: celebs love Zegna suits, and we love celebs, which means we love Zegna, right?

F is for Fear of God

This is, “not a street wear brand…or a Christian clothing line, it’s denim, fabric, nylon, it’s bombers.”

G is for Givenchy

Since 2005, creative director Riccardo Tisci has brought a dark romanticism and sensuality to the house’s codes of luxury.

H is for Hood By Air

You have probably seen every celebrity known to man wearing an oversized t-shirt with the letters ”HBA” printed on the bottom.

I is for I Love Ugly

Don’t let the name fool you, I love Ugly is producing both quality and stylish apparel.

J is for John Elliot

The brand credited (or blamed?) for the sea of side-zip hoodies and tapered sweatpants taking over every street in America.

K is for Kiehls

After a long day, nothing feels better than washing off all that grime with my Kiehls ultra facial cleanser.

L is for Levi’s

Nothing is more American than wearing a pair of Levi denim.

M is for Maison Kitsune


For those wondering, Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox. However, Maison Kitsunê is as French as you get, combining traditional standards of production with a contemporary attitude.

N is for Nike

Fact: the swoosh still makes some of the best shoes of all time. Sorry Kanye.

O is for Off White c/o Virgil Abloh

Conceived as a bridge between the worlds of streetwear and high fashion, designer Virgil Abloh’s Off-White explores the expression of youth culture in the contemporary moment.

P is for Palace

This relatively new London skate brand has made waves for its cheeky attitude and distinctively British wit.

Q is For Quay

Quay Australia’s sunglasses have become a favorite for people with: a fearless style, a carefree attitude and a fresh perspective.

R is for Rag & Bone

If the name doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will. This brand has become synonymous with naturally wearable clothing that innovatively melds classic tailoring with an edgy yet understated New York aesthetic.

S is for Supreme

No other brand can generate the amount of mayhem that Supreme does, but of course I’m still going to stand outside on Fairfax for a chance to cop a box logo hoodie.

T is for The Hundreds

After a new logo entitled “Wildfire”, which stands to represent a new chapter for the California natives, the streetwear mainstay has withheld no expense in producing quality pieces for all ages.

U is for Under Armour

Overtaking adidas to become the 2nd largest sportswear brand is no easy task, unless you got Stephen Curry on your side.

V is for Vans

Let’s face it, we all own a pair.

W is for Wings + Horns

Best name in the game and a footwear quality that is phenemonal.

X is for roleX (no brand starts with an X, seriously)


Every man’s dream watch has a rolex crown logo engraved within.

Y is for (Yves) Saint Laurent



It ain’t Laurent without Yves. Hedi Slimane may have left, but there is no doubting the French maison’s influence in fashion.

Z is for Zanerobe

Contrary to popular belief, Zanerobe doesn’t actually make robes. They make streetwear attire and is a brand that goes beyond being just a youth movement.
