This is the 10th edition of GQ‘s annual “Best New Menswear Designer in America” list, and to mark this landmark occasion the publication has decided to recall its four favorite new designers of the past decade to share this year’s title.

The four faves include Michael Bastian (2007 and 2011’s pick), the trio behind Saturdays NYC (2012), John Elliott (2014) and Steven Alan (2008). GQ also takes the time to talk us through its reasoning and explain what it is exactly that makes these designers so great.

Head over to GQ for an extended read and look for to new collections from each designer to hit Gap stores this fall.
