Good streetwear is hard to find - and the funky labels that make the best are often stifled by a small and often conservative market. Here are my favorite streetwear designers, including one huge designer who designs great streetwear nonetheless. Please add your picks, and help get some of these labels the recognition they deserve. 1. Paper Denim & Cloth - the best label for jeans, hands down. Throws down on the biggies like Diesel, Energie, Gas, and Helmut Lang with no problems. 2. Frankie B Men - a new discovery of mine - long popular with the ladies, Daniella "˜s new men's line emphasizes great cuts and a boho-rock sensibility that is pure west coast. 3. PS by Paul Smith - no introduction necessary 4. Martin Margiela - king of the deconstructionists. 5. Dirk Schonberger - a relative newcomer to the Antwerp/London/Paris scene, I think that his clothes are perhaps the most wearable of the Belgian designers. His shirts and jackets are terrifically detailed. 6. For great shoes - Premiata.
