Best of 2010 | Brands

For some reason this list seemed a little easier to put together, that said as I’m about to publish, Im still second guessing myself… I guess you’re never going to get these things 100% right. Again, we tried to focus on brands that made a special impact on 2010, not necessarily our favourite brands as a whole, but our favourite of 2010. Again, there were others near the list, Prada I thought were impressive this past year(surprisingly if anything), Rick Owens and Raf Simons as always, Engineered Garments, Nike NSW, and others like, Barbour, Carhartt, APC, Bleu de Paname, Kitsune, Rag & Bone, Trussardi 1911, Mark McNairy and Aitor Throup┬ádid well throughout the year; but here’s what we decided on. No explanations as to why this time around, we’ll let you make up your own mind by voting below, we’d love to hear your comments too.

If you’re interested, my personal picks are Nonnative, The SoloIst and Adam Kimmel.
