31. Benny Gold
Streetwear is anti-corporate, anti-authority, anti-establishment. In a way, it's very much punk rock. DIY all the way. And that's why Benny Gold is one of the greatest streetwear brands of all time–founder, owner, designer, and salesman Benny Gold is a one-man brand and the flag-bearer for Independents. Formerly the original designer behind HUF, the San Francisco skateboarder continued on to build his own personal label centering on a glider plane logo and particular, well-designed product.
