    Are we redoing this?

    Okay, well, in no particular order (and I am pretty sure that most of this list would hold even if I had unlimited funds.

    1. RRL
    2. Maison Martin Margiela
    3. Dries van Noten
    4. Wings + Horns
    5. Engineered Garments (actually, WWM overtook it for a while, but with Daiki gone, it's definitely back to EG)
    6. Our Legacy (just solid, well wearing basics, like Wings+Horns)
    7. Common Projects (go to kicks - best versions of fancy Chucks at about 10x the price of the original, but there you go.)
    8. Buttero (My favorite kicks right now are Buttero. If they had more models, and used softer leather for SS, they might overtake Common Projects altogether.
    9. Trickers
    10. Carmina
    11. N. Hoolywood
    12. Jean Shop

    Okay, I guess that I cheated a little.

    In order of preference

    1.Ann Demeulemeester

    2.Yohji Yamamoto

    3.Damir Doma
    /
    4.Junya Watanabe

    5.Number (N)ine

    6.Comme Des Garcons H+

    7.Ute Ploier

    8.Sacai

    9. Alexandre Plokhov

    10.White Moutaineering

    1-4 are pretty much the brands I wear daily aside from Uniqlo/AA/Muji basics. After buying heavily into Ann D/YY/DD for the last few years I'm now slightly shifting interest to the more street-wear vibe designers(mainly Junya and WM). Would love to explore more but with limiting time and fund it's probably best to focus on the few designers I absolutely adore.

    What would be better is to start back up the similar thread that was something along the lines of - "Brands you own 3 or more items from" which gives a much better idea of what peoples closets really look like / what people actually wear. I went looking for it the other day but couldn't find it...

    4. Loake (One of the few brands who do some relatively nice shoes in my size)

    6. APC (Jeans)
    7. Uniqlo (black jeans, t shirts)

    I kinda like this idea, even though it burns me up inside that I can't list ToJ (two leathers to date) or Buttero (two pairs, although I briefly owned a third that didn't fit).

    In no order whatsoever:

    Common Projects - I have like 9 pairs at this point. I have no idea how that happened or what the hell is wrong with me.
    Uniqlo - Pretty much everything, especially socks.
    American Apparel - Mostly the thermal henleys and the sheer jersey loose crew necks along with a hoodie and a peppering of other stuff.
    Alternative Apparel - Some u-necks and tanks.
    Silent - Some t-shirts, a beanie, and a pair of sneakers (although I'm planning on selling the sneakers). Wanna get some more stuff, maybe some pants and a hoodie.
    Wings + Horns - My current favorite pair of jeans, a hoodie, and a cardigan, with a henley on the way and probably some more stuff in the future. Retail prices are getting ridiculous, but there's usually at least a little decent stuff kicking around come sales time.
    Zissou - Two belts that get a lot of wear and a couple of double-wrap leather bracelets. Might get another belt soon.
    H&M - Primarily the underwear, although it can also be good for super-cheap stuff like gym shorts and the occasional better-than-expected pair of pants, jacket, &c.
    Gant Rugger - Button-downs are decent quality, relatively easy to find on sale, and a pretty good fit with some minor tailoring.
    MMM line 22 - Two pairs of GATs and a pair of side-zips.
