You can’t tell us otherwise, this is the best of men’s streetwear in New Haven.
Either you already know… or you need to up your clothing game!
Welcome to the first post of Sillable’s Store Spotlight series, where we showcase the local businesses that make our community vibrant like no other. Today, we’re thrilled to shine the spotlight on the store that we’ve been working with since Day 1. You can find them at 59 Whalley Ave, New Haven or on Sillable here.
From the very beginning of Sillable’s journey, the owners of Da’W.O.R.L.D. inspired and supported us with their daring vision, passion for style, and embodiment of community. And so, whether you’re looking for accessories to spice up your wardrobe, or clean elevated t-shirts to tone it down, we’re very excited to show you Da’W.O.R.L.D.
Fashion-forward Men’s Streetwear
Step into the store, and you’ll immediately feel the expressive energy of every piece. Some designs are louder and catch your eye immediately, while others are subtly creative (see products spotlight below). Innovating with men’s fashion in general is confined to colors and designs when compared with women’s fashion. However, Da’W.O.R.L.D. does a great job at carrying pieces that let any individual express their personality, whether it’s a band tee, a particular color palette, a bold color statement piece, or a cheeky reference to anime.
No matter the design, one thing is for certain: any t-shirt from Da’W.O.R.L.D. is a t-shirt that will get people asking, “where’d you get that?”. As Rihanna would say, no basics here.
Da’W.O.R.L.D. looks for the best material, hand feel, and detailing.
Even though there’s new pieces coming in all the time (sometimes we’d visit on consecutive days and find a completely new section propped up), Da’W.O.R.L.D. is much more than flashy fashion.
There’s a sense of empowerment through the clothes you pick out from Da’W.O.R.L.D., which stems from the very core of the shop’s DNA: its name.
Da’W.O.R.L.D. literally stands for “We Own da Right 2 Live our Dreams”, combining the first letter of every word. So, staying fly is your right!
This is a store that’s built for the community and stands for community ownership. Urban fashion is a means to inspire and liberate individuals to live out their dreams.
Vision-Driven Men’s Streetwear
Rock Bolden is the visionary behind Da’W.O.R.L.D. and he now runs the operation with his sons, Bizzy and Tariq. Fashion is fickle, but with a strong backbone guiding men’s streetwear towards innovation, expression, and again, empowerment, Da’W.O.R.L.D. stands out against trends and fads.
We chose to work with them as our first pilot store because our values aligned perfectly: a shared willingness to try new things, move swiftly, and grow their online business while preserving the store’s unique essence.
During our dozens and dozens of store visits, we witnessed Rock and Bizzy in the store every day. There’s always new stock to put up, reels to post, regulars to catch up with, brands and outlets to chase up on and so much more behind the scenes.
Sillable aims to bring a stream of new audiences and handle delivery logistics, so that they can focus on what they do best: dripping out the city of New Haven.

As I’m writing this post, Bizzy just uploaded these CACUSS “Off Limits” Keswell Reversible Bucket Hats onto Da’W.O.R.L.D.’s Sillable storefront, which contains a featured selection of the most popular items sold in store.
This bucket hat’s business outside, party inside look is perfect for summer, if you ask me! Get yourself the hat or share their Sillable storefront with a friend to show support.
