Easy Street

Streetwear is a word and a style that's been popping up a lot lately in menswear circles. But it's also an ambiguous umbrella term that includes numerous different aesthetics and styles. While you're likely familiar with heavy hitters like Supreme and Stussy, what makes today's burgeoning streetwear brands so unique is that they remain heavily influenced by the cities and streets that raised them. From the bold lines and clever graphics of brands like City of Win and Only to the tongue-in-cheek patterns of Lazy Oaf to Fear of God's lean, mean meditation on grunge. Chances are, there's an up-and-coming line out there making comfortable pieces for your off-duty wardrobe, you just haven't found them yet. Herewith, a few brands that manage to blend form and function with a creative dose of style, all while staying true to the streets and paying homage to their hometown cities.
