One of the things that are so exciting about the turn in seasons is the palpable tension of seeing which labels have upped their game and which have flopped. As every brand looks for its new-season aesthetic, there’s always the chance for some to miss the mark. There is a third group of labels, too, though. This group returns season after season with mind-boggling consistency, and its reward is that we know we’ll cop the collection before it’s even come out. Let’s take Stüssy SS21, for example.

Founded in the 1980s, Stüssy actually birthed many of the styles we consider central to today’s fashion world. It’s this strong identity and unwavering trust in it that ensures Stüssy literally never flops. Stüssy SS21 is no exception. The label’s usual offering of graphic shirting, effortless outerwear, and a handful of fan-favorite motifs like the 8-ball design returns for the warmer season and it accounts for a good portion of our wardrobe. From staple caps to the mesh shorts of the season, here are 8 reasons why you should never doubt Stüssy’s consistency.
