Posting so other people dont get ripped off. a few weeks ago i ordered some shorts and a jacket off an ad for blaroken and two belts from wayrates, ads that appear on swellnet.

Never got a response from wayrates and after some searching found out they are both scam websites.

Clothes look good on the sites but i might not get them...

Sorry to hear mate. We outsource our ads to a third party (who essentially use Google) so I'll report these links.

I also recommend using PayPal or similar as you should be able to get a refund.

Thing is there is a market for the kind of shorts and multipocketed jackets they promise. The clothes are very stylish but they deliver crappy clothes with zippers going nowhere, all show.

Got the belts from wayrates, top shelf belts. Got the two pairs of shorts from blaroken ($56 each) and they are cheap tacky versions of the ones in the pictures. lots of pocket zips that dont work and cargo pockets that dont open but at least they fit.
Still waiting on a $96 jacket.
The stuff comes from china should be selling for $5 each
