PRSTGE Review & Recommendations (2024)

Another men’s streetwear brand to catch my attention on Instagram is called PRSTGEPRSTGE (Prestige) brings European-inspired streetwear here to the United States. In fact, most of their clothes look like they came from European streetwear brands, including brands I already shop at and have written reviews for them. After making a couple of purchases, I do like this brand. In my official PRSTGE review, I will share my experience with them in detail. My wish list is at the end of this review, which displays pieces I recommend checking out.

About PRSTGE

According to their website, PRSTGE is a worldwide supplier of men’s streetwear fashion. Born in 2012 and based in the United States, its mission is to “deliver the world with the latest quality trends at affordable prices for everyone. They strive to bridge the gaps between modern and vintage fashion with alternative and urban styles.

My PRSTGE Experience

PRSTGE has re-branded several times since I first found them on Instagram in 2019. When I first came across them on Instagram, they were called Hoodstore. I came across a pair of jeans in one of their collections. The collection is called HXXD Paris, which did have its own Instagram.

Assuming HXXD Paris was the official brand, further research showed that it is just the name of one of their collections. Other collections Hoodstore had at the time were called Camolteni Milani and Tvtism. Eventually, their brand name became Hood Couture. Now, they go by PRSTGE. Why the name change? I do not know, and they do not explain why. Either way, their clothing remains consistent, which I appreciate.

First Impressions

The first pair of jeans from Hoodstore I came across is their Double Striped Track Jeans in Black and Yellow. I like them because they are unique to the increasingly popular ripped track jeans design. Instead of the popular one-side (or even two-sided) stripe on both legs, Hoodstore’s track jeans have two stripes on the outer side of the legs.

I initially wanted to purchase these jeans because they were a unique alternative to the Lakenzie (now Reputation Studios) track jeans I own. However, they always sold out when I was ready to buy. Personal financial issues also prevented me from buying these jeans when they were available. Now, they are sold out.

Other items that influenced my good first impression of PRSTGE include the Double Stripe Track Jeans V1 in both Blue/White and Gray/White and their Desert Storm Jeans in Blue. To be clear, the V2 jeans are ripped at the knees, while the V1 jeans are not. I did not care for their track pants.

First Purchase

Since I could never purchase the Double Stripe Track Jeans V2 in Black and Yellow, I chose the Light Gray and White pair instead. Despite not being the color scheme I originally wanted, I still love these jeans. Overall, they are perfect for slim men like me. I like how they fit on my calves. Also, they stretch well to conform to my movement, which helps make them feel comfortable overall.

Additional Purchases

After being satisfied with my first PRSTGE purchase, I decided to look into their shirt collection next. Regarding colors and graphic design, just about all their shirts were basic. However, Hoodstore made up for this by getting creative with their shirt’s physical features and material. They sold t-shirts with: 

  • Velour material 
  • Hoods 
  • Longline shirts 
  • Scalloped bottoms 
  • Double-layers 
  • Zippers 
  • Front pockets 

My next order is the Scalloped T-shirt with Side Zipper in Charcoal and the Stripe Track T-Shirt in Red. Overall, I am satisfied with these two shirts. However, I did make a mistake by ordering these shirts in a medium when I should have ordered them in a small. This has nothing to do with Hoodstore; again, I like the shirts. At the time, I thought I was still a size medium, despite actively exercising. One day, when I noticed how much my body toned up and improved, the size mistake could not be more apparent. 

Shipping

So far, I have been OK with PRSTGE’s shipping. All of my items arrived about a week after placing my orders. Yes, I am from the United States, where PRSTGE is based. However, I have shopped online at many U.S.-based stores with bad shipping service. 

Domestic Shipping

PRSTGE shipping within the U.S. usually takes one to two business days to process and 2-12 business days to deliver. The final shipping time varies by location and your chosen shipping method. Also, shipping is free for orders over $200. For orders under $200, here are the prices for each method:

  • Standard shipping costs $5.99.
  • UPS Ground Priority costs $8.99 – $11.99 and takes 3-5 business days to deliver.
  • UPS 3-Day Select costs $12.85 – $18.99 and takes up to three business days to deliver.
  • UPS 2nd Day Air costs $22.00 – $28.00 and takes two business days to deliver.
  • UPS Next Day Air costs $45.00 – $51.00 and takes one business day to deliver.

International Shipping

Regarding international shipping, PRSTGE ships its products to over 225 countries. On their website, they boast about how they can ship in express to all of these countries at the best rates.

PRSTGE uses DHL, UPS, and USPS to ship worldwide. In addition to the one to two days processing time, orders take 2-21 business days to deliver. The final delivery time varies by the chosen shipping method and country.

Returns & Exchanges

PRSTGE allows for returns and exchanges within 20 days of delivery. Unfortunately, they are only offering refunds in the form of store credit. Also, you will be responsible for the shipping costs of your return or exchange.

For your return to be accepted, items must be in the same brand new condition. It cannot show signs of wear, washing, stains, or orders. Also, it must be in the same packaging. Exchanges are only accepted if the replacement product is available. The same rules for returns regarding product condition still apply.

Final Thoughts

PRSTGE continues to evolve as a company while expanding its collection with more items that catch my attention. Now, they no longer sell branded t-shirts, only hoodies and pants. Not only have they re-stocked some of their iconic pants, but they are also selling more cargo pants and jeans. I appreciate them for keeping the skinny fit style with new items they release, as other brands are releasing more baggy-style pants.

Overall, I am grateful to have discovered PRSTGE. I admire this brand’s creativity, plus the time and energy they put into their clothing and shopping experience. The direction this streetwear brand is heading is a positive one.

I look forward to continuing to support them on whatever they release next. Thank you so much for reading my PRSTGE review. Check out my official PRSTGE Wish List below to see all of the products I recommend. Also, leave a comment below on what you think.

  1. I must say I bought my first cargo jeans from this site and was very impressed by the product along with the quality material. At first I was concerned being a cheap Chinese knockoff site but turned out to be a very professional experience all the way. Thank you will come back again.

    1. Appreciate you feedback! I actually shared similar sentiment about PRSTGE being a cheap Chinese knockoff site at first because the design of their pants were becoming common. However, like you, I too was impressed with my first pair of pants, their material, and the overall shopping experience. Thank you!
