First things first: Haal is good. Haal started in photography and video, later on became the first designer at Ann-Sofie Back and in 2013 left Back and started his own label. 

There is not much pretentiousness to Haal's clothing. He is not ripping off Thrasher t-shirts and selling them for big bucks. Haal is very simple with what he does - yet still different. Haal has somehow managed to upgrade simplicity to just the right extent. His clothes are wearable, cool, look well made and are still special enough to give you the feel like you are wearing something more luxurious, regardless to the fact that you are only wearing a simple t-shirt or jeans. And to achieve longevity in fashion you have to find the right balance between design and reality and Haal did just that. He made simple cool, he made simple well designed.
