I'll be perfectly honest, I hate 95% of streetwear brands. If you're unfamiliar with the term 'streetwear', think HUF, Supreme, Crooks & Castles, Obey; basically everything you would find inside a Zumiez store. I find most of these brands to be some combination of boring, generic, overly simplistic, and overpriced.

However, there are a few brands considered to be 'streetwear' that I am a huge fan of. If you're anything like me -- you prefer to stand out in a crowd and you love some combination of '80s and '90s fashion -- then you might enjoy the following few brands as well.

1. Staple Pigeon

Staple Pigeon was the first brand I encountered that actually got me interested in any form of streetwear. It also helped me realize that joggers are the most comfortable legware for any occasion.

2. Pink Dolphin

I discovered Pink Dolphin in the 'related items' section on ebay when I was looking for Staple Pigeon stuff. A well-crafted windbreaker is a one-way ticket to my heart.

3. Vandal Collective

Vandal Collective is my most recent discovery. As soon as I saw they had a collection with 'Bel-Air' in the title, I knew they would have clothes for me.
