I work at a Zumeiz, and the list of brands is just growing. There is no sense in downing brands for being there anymore, and I am not just saying that because I am an employee. I cried a little when we started carrying Stussy.
no. the appeal of streetwear brands was that they all represented a unique culture. some people can argue each brand represented it's own mottos/ideals/lifestyles etc. i dont consider snapbacks, gay ass tank tops, and nike socks to be streetwear. you of all people should know that's the majority of zumiez's consumers right there. so when a brand goes to your store, it represents more than a brand expanding to more retailers, it represents a brand abandoning it's own ideals.
