Jon Buscemi’s 25 Most Powerful People in Streetwear

Earlier this week Complex released a list ranking the 25 Most Powerful People in Streetwear. Naturally, a list of this stature sparked much frenzy, controversy and backlash in the community. Rather than just sitting back and complaining about inaccuracies, Jon Buscemi (of Gourmet NFN) took to Instagram today to release his own Top 25.

If you’re wondering about names like Shawn Stussy and Rick Klotz – either they no longer own the companies they founded or their brands no longer exist..
