An Assemblage of Labels

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I thought it might be useful to compile a big list of all brands/labels/designers that are of at least relatively-good quality. This could help members discover new labels, and could also assist for searching on ebay - especially good for deals on more obscure brands. I think we should break it down by 'Designer' labels (whose goal is design rather than top quality), 'Quality' brands (whose goal is quality above design), Streetwear labels, shoe brands, leather goods labels (for companies who make primarily leather goods - jackets, brief cases, wallets, etc), and accessories. If this turns out to be a popular/useful thread, maybe we could HOF it. I'll start this off (please correct an mis-spellings): Designers: - Agnes B - Gucci - Prada - Dolce & Gabbana/D&G - Armani (Emporio Armani, Collezioni, Black/Blue Label) - Etro - Comme des Garcons - Costume National - Dior Homme - Dirk Bikkembergs - Versace (Versus, Gianni Versace Couture, Versace Jeans) - Jil Sander - Helmut Lang - John Varvatos - Valentino - Paul Smith - Burberry London/Burberry Prorsum - Polo Ralph Lauren - H by Hilfiger - Donna Karan (DKNY, Signature, and black label [Donna Karan Couture]) - Calvin Klein (new 'White Label', runway 'black label') - Michael Kors (main line and 'Michael') - Hugo Boss (black label, orange label, red label) - Yohji Yamamoto (and Y3) - Ted Baker - YSL Rive Gauche - Steven Alan - Dries van Noten - Marc Jacobs - Ozwald Boateng - Faconnable - Alexander McQueen - Roberto Cavalli - Romeo Gigli - Martin Margiela - Gianfranco Ferre - Moschino - Coast 'Quality': - Kiton - Brioni - Ermenegildo Zegna - Malo - TSE - Luciano Barbera - Barba - Barbour - Robert Talbott - Attolini - Hermes - Borrelli - Canali - Corneliani - Paul Stuart - Belvest - Oxxford - Turnbull & Asser - Hilditch & Key - Lorenzini - Hickey-Freeman - Ike Behar - RL Purple Label - Baldesarini by Boss - Alfred Dunhill - Brunelo Cucinelli - Richard James - Zanella - Incotex - Mabitex Streetwear: - Diesel - Paper Denim & Cloth - Seven for All Mankind - Joie - Allen B - NY Based - True Religion - Blue Cult - Chip & Pepper - Threadless.com T-shirts - G Star - Gsus - J. Lindeberg - Energie - Anthony Caputo - H&M? - Earl - Levi's Premium and Levi's Vintage - Fred Perry - Evisu - Seal Kay - Jean Paul d'Mage - Ben Sherman - DSquared - A.P.C. - Cloak NYC Shoes: - John Lobb - Bruno Magli - Allen Edmonds - Alden - Salvatore Ferragamo - Vass - Lattanzi - Cole Haan (Italy [Bragano?]) - Bally - Grenson - Crockett & Jones - Tods/Hogan Leather Goods: - Seraphin - Louis Vuitton - Botega Veneta Accessories (ties, scarves, socks, etc): - Tino Cosma - Robert Talbott - Pantherella That's about all I could think of off the top of my head. I know I missed some obvious ones, so somebody throw out some more suggestions.

More streetwear and designer (I find it hard to distinguish the two eg. DSquared is a Streetwear "designer", as is Cloak.  Does having a runway show qualify you as a "designer").  I think that better categories are modern and traditional. Built by Wendy Wrangler 47 (by Built by Wendy) Fake London (Genius and otherwise) Great China Wall Unis Costume National (and C'N'C) Age Nice Collective House of Bianca (I only have one piece, but like the stuff) CP Company Alabama Project Yoko Devereaux Two Flowers Mason Weber PPCM Marni Neil Barrett Accessories and footwear: Baltazar Belts Puma Mihara (the only designer sneaker that are actual improvements on the sneaker brand.)
