Best Style Brands 2016

If we had a nickel for every time we heard someone comment that 2016 was a year straight from the bowels of hell, we’d have enough money to buy something from every one of the fashion brands on this list. Alas, we haven’t figured out how to monetize other people’s complaints on our timeline just yet, but we can take comfort in knowing that the 11 labels here (10, plus one for good luck) gave us something to feel good about during the last 12 crazy months. From Gucci’s luxury victory lap to Supreme’s continued reign as streetwear kings and Noah’s social awareness, these are the names in men’s style that can look back on 2016 and say: “Hey, don’t blame us.”
