Streetwear-websites.com launches

One of my frustrations with internet-based clothes shopping is that there isn’t a big site that rates and ranks stores, and I was going to make one myself until I realised I had no idea what I was doing (no, really, I even made a sub-domain for it), but then along comes Streetwear-websites to beat me to the punch. Here’s some background blurb and a short explanation of the site:

Streetwear-Websites.com is the big brother of Sneaker-websites.com and is out there to collect the best streetwear related websites and resources. If you really want to know what’s up and what’s online check streetwear-websites.com. We constantly add new sites if you have any suggestions just fill out the suggestion form and fire it up.

There’s a fairly sizeable amount of brands (and blogs) on there already, including many that have graced these hallowed pages. Whilst I know peoples’ views on streetwear is largely subjective and highly opinionated, I think that rating stores and blogs is quite a good idea, it lets consumers know what’s ‘good’ out there. Just so we’re clear, I am in no way asking you to go and rank me as a perfect 5, you could, but my ego can handle the truth, we all know this blog is a 4.95 at its very best!

You can also leave comments about each of the stores/blogs which could provide a valuable tool for people researching whether they can trust a brand, and what others think of the style.

You may well notice that Streetwear-websites very much has the look and feel of a blog, this is probably because it is running on WordPress, I do wonder what this will mean for future expansion of the site since WordPress is more blog software than CMS software. Apologies for such a tech-oriented sentence, I know it isn’t really HYAs domain to comment on software.

That small concern aside, I’m really glad that there is a site like SW out there, and I encourage you all to check it out and submit your details if you own a streetwear related site and haven’t got in on the action yet.
