Streetwear is one of the biggest fashion trends to date. It has changed quite a lot since it first launched. Now, many brands have decided to get on board with Shawn Stussy’s style. It originally started back in the 1980s and is still going strong. 


Carhartt WIP

Carhartt WIP originally began making work clothes for tradesmen. There are many brands that are meant for something else. Carhartt Work In Progress is one of those brands that streetwear wearers have adopted into their style. 

They have made plenty of changes for the fashion industry. Like most streetwear brands, Carhartt makes sure that their logo is easily visible and people know it is their clothing straight away. As mentioned earlier, they weren’t originally made for streetwear fashion. This is similar to another clothing brand called Dickies. Dickies also started making work clothes before entering the world of streetwear. 


Bape (A Bathing Ape)

Streetwear is a style that originally started in America before making its way across the world. Now, Japan is another country that has decided to wear this style and brands have begun making streetwear styled clothes. 

Japanese streetwear is modern-day streetwear. Furthermore, it is printed clothing that is very colourful which is what attracts the audiences that it currently has. It was founded back in 1993 with a DJ and fashion designer called Nigo. 


Stussy had to be on this list seen as they were the first brand to create streetwear. It started with a Californian surfer called Shawn Stussy and soon became a massive fashion trend with surfers in the early 1980s. 

It started with him scribbling his name on surfboards before he started writing his name on t-shirts and other clothing items. This became popular quickly and inspired many streetwear brands to the style. 


Supreme was one of the early brands for streetwear and is the most premium brand on this list. It is seen as the Godfather of mens streetwear. Supreme is one of those brands that release clothes in stages. Meaning there is only a certain amount to buy before they are sold out. 

This created massive hype around the brand that made people want to wait outside stores and buy them as soon as it opened. Supreme collaborated with many premium brands today and, they are still a prominent brand in the world of streetwear and the fashion industry. 

The North Face

The North Face is a popular brand that other brands collaborate with. This brand was originally for those that love hiking and the outdoor weather until streetwear fans began wearing it. It was only until recently that other brands collaborated with them for streetwear fashion. 

Brands that The North Face have collaborated with are Junya Watanabe, Raeburn, MM6 Maison Margiela as well as Supreme. They have recently collaborated with one of the most luxurious brands in the fashion industry which is Gucci. 


Streetwear is becoming more and more popular. There are plenty of other brands that have decided to design their clothes like the typical streetwear style. In the UK, mens full tracksuits have become popular for streetwear fashion as well. One thing for certain is that streetwear does not seem to be slowing down.
