Our favorite brands right now are ones that range from smaller retailers to ones we could not live without. Here are ThreadBeast’s favorite brands at the moment.
Clothing with a picture of a dirty bird doesn’t sound that appealing. However, Staple Pigeon with it’s clean and unique pieces make streetwear fans want to wear their logo proudly. In 1997, Jeff Staple went to a clothing store in NYC wearing a shirt he created in his silkscreen print class. The owners loved it so much that they asked Jeff to create some for the store. This started Staple Pigeon and others began noticing. Nike even reached out to Jeff in 2005 to create a Nike Dunk off of his designs. Staple is now synonymous with the hustle and bustle of NYC and is seen all across the country as a top tier streetwear brand. Our favorites from the brand are their bomber jackets and their simple tees with the iconic pigeon.

Their simple tees that usually have a small logo in front and Brixton written on the back in clean, simple letters makes it look like an exclusive club that you wish you were a part of.
