    Thanks, I like what I've seen of Bless which isn't much, have never handled Braquinho, like everything CdG and Junya do just not my taste, probably some of the best construction around though. Lanvin is nice, I like Schneider too, prefer MMM and Jil though for simple and clean.

    I am surprised no one listed Robert Geller yet, he is definitely my favorite designer at the moment, the rest are in no particular order.
    1. Robert Geller
    2. Wings + Horns-great cotton basics.
    3. MMM-good amount of stuff, also has about the strongest line of accessories that I can think of(from shoes to jewelry and leather goods)
    4. Engineered Garments
    5. Alden(especially custom makeups i.e. Alden of Carmel, Leather Soul, etc.)
    6. Rick Owens-Really one of the most influential American-born designers of the last ten years, I also enjoy his work for Revillon.
    7. Junya Watanabe
    8. Yohji Yamamoto
    9. Quoddy Moccasin
    10.-Edit: Temple of Jawnz, gotta give him a nod as he is offering very cool things for a very cool price.

    in order:


    mmm-consistently wearable and just trashy enough
    jil sander-generally wearable and of high quality
    prada-still my choice for suiting, just fits me right
    rick owens-consistency is king, a clear and cohesive brand vision
    MA+-always solid, well-constructed and generally wearable
    dries-lame basic done right
    H&M-lame basics done as fast fashion
    uniqlo-boring but good ROI
    undercover-king of high-end streetwear
    filippa k-best of the mid-range IMO

    notable drops: Raf, from 1 to 15 or so

    What are some reputable sites to purchase Junya, since I live in the midwest, and it's hard for me to get my hands on Junya pieces.

    buzz rickson
    engineered garments
    apolis activism
    kicking mule workshop
    mil surp/found
    target= merona/mossimo supply co
    shipley and halmos suiting
    junya- the junya i've seen anyhow
    BoO
    j crew

    black fleece and some thom browne,fred perry,paul smith


    I like the workwear type stuff, or atleast the stuff with workwear details and not a crazy fit.
    i enjoy finding treasures too much at thrift stores to give up on found levis/wrangler pieces.
    the junya and BoO slimmish stuff is more how i want to look for church or semi-formal stuff... casual, but still semi dapper.
