All over blogs and forums (yeah, this one too), I see people saying "that's not streetwear", "this is streetwear", "a mix between streetwear and menswear" etc.

So how do you define streetwear? Is it just white/grey/black tees and hoodies with over-sized logo-prints on them? Is it garments affiliated with/rooted in skatewear?

What are the "criteria" for calling something streetwear?

(If there's already a discussion on this somewhere, don't bust my kneecaps, I tried doing a thorough forum search before writing this!)

@clementsand "regular wear" seems way broader than the definitions many are sticking to here..

people should just wear what they want and stop trying to fit into some label

be careful what you pretend to be
