Vallier was launched in Fall 2019, and they’ve already made a name for themselves with apparel like the Brera Light Down Jacket that finds that sweet spot between urban and technical. Reigning Champ appeals to the athleisure crowd that wants comfortable clothing like the Classic Crewneck that can be worn anywhere from the gym to the club. Duer is another brand that combines technical detailing with street-ready style, and the No Sweat Slim Pant has plenty of both.

Arc’teryx has been leading the charge in outerwear innovation since it started in 1989. The Canadian company is known for its high-quality apparel, and the Seyla Coat provides full winter coverage in an urban design that would look great on the trendsetter on your list. The North Face is a heritage brand of technical wear, and the popularity of the super-soft Campshire Pullover 2.0 is a prime example of the brand’s ability to bring the outerwear comfort to the streets. If you want to talk about heritage brands, Levi’s is synonymous with quality denim, and the Wedgie Icon Fit Jeans bring back the old school style that the brand continues to rep.
