1. Stussy
You don't invent the genre, survive and thrive through 3 waves of streetwear, and NOT make #1. You don't have 75 of your own stores around the world, maintain and control your signature product, core following, and meticulous distribution over 30 years, and NOT make first place. Stussy is the example and the archetype. It all started in 1980 with a signature, and every streetwear brand since has had Stussy's name written all over it. This list might as well have been entitled, "Top 50 Stussy Brands."
