The Oldest Streetwear Brands in Business Today

WTaps

Years In Business: 17
Established: 1996

At first glance, WTaps (pronounced Double Taps) is just another Japanese brand with a confusing name. But one thing is for sure: The clothes from the label have always been instacop status and well worth spending your monthly rent on.

One of the leaders in the early Japanese streetwear fashion scene, WTaps emerged in 1996 peddling military influenced duds. Since then, it has expanded to offer items that fall more towards the preppy side. Now you can find the brand selling cardigans, button-downs, hoodies, and more. You can always count on the brand to execute and finish season after season, just like the military term it draws its name from.
