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: is the big brother of 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 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.
