I like the faber castell ones - mainly because they don't require heat setting but have also used the fastex paints (which from memory are cheaper)
You can also get textile medium to use with acrylic paints like the jo sonja ones, I bought some a while ago but haven't tried it yet.

Dye sticks like the pentel ones are also very cool but you can't get fine detail with them like you can with actual textile paint.

the paebo setacolour fabric paints are good. they have lots of colours, they mix together well and don't need more than one or 2 coats. they also have cool mediums to mix in like shimmers and white stuff that can be mixed with paint and puffs up with heat. and they can be screen printed. they need to be heat set, but heat set ones sit in the fabric nicer and don't sit on the fabric and feel rough.
