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. 

01.  Off-White

It’s impossible to talk about streetwear with any kind of authority without mentioning Off-White. Now that its founder Mr Virgil Abloh is the head of menswear at Louis Vuitton, his brand has taken on a new relevance that elevates it to a cultural marker of cool in 2018.

Printed Brushed-Cotton Jersey T-Shirt

02.  Fear of God

Founded by Mr Jerry Lorenzo, Los Angeles-based Fear of God sits at the top of the hill when it comes to West Coast street style. Its ripped jeans and tracksuit pants have been seen on everyone from Future to Mr Kanye West.

FEAR OF GOD
Oversized Denim-Trimmed Checked Wool and Cotton-Blend Shirt
FEAR OF GOD
Basketball Panelled Leather High-Top Sneakers

03.  Vetements

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.

VETEMENTS
Oversized Printed Cotton-Piqué Polo Shirt
VETEMENTS
Collapsible-Heel Checkerboard Canvas Slip-On Sneakers

04.  Aries

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.

ARIES
Mr Wolf Embroidered Fleece-Back Jersey Hoodie
ARIES
Temple Tie-Dyed Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt

05.  Flagstuff

Japanese streetwear brand Flagstuff is probably the least well-known brand on this list and landed on MR PORTER only a couple of months ago, but its anime references and edgy prints have captured our attention, and are getting snapped up fast.
