What are the top five streetwear brands every twenty-something should know about?
MR PORTER is the global online retail destination for men's style. They try to their hand at schooling people on the Top 5 streetwear brands. MR PORTER stocks more than 490 designers, so even though they're just talking streetwear, we won’t pretend that narrowing it down to five brands is a cakewalk.

Vetements means clothes in French, which is deceptively straightforward for a brand that markets itself through irony and nuanced nostalgia. No brand has captured the zeitgeist like Vetements in the past few years and its founder, Mr Demna Gvasalia, now heads up Balenciaga. The brand is most known for its DHL merchandise, but you’d also do well to check out its racing-inspired black hoodies and sock sneakers.
Unlike some of the more out-there stuff you’ll find from the brands above, Aries is easy to wear, won’t cost the earth and will give almost anyone, twentysomething or otherwise, a bit of street cred. In other words, it’s gateway streetwear for the man in the know and prides itself on not gendering its products.
