We at Motivation opened the doors to our retail location in 2007, opened our online store in 2008, and last year launched our full in-house brand and started selling it in select other boutiques. Since we are located right on the University of Michigan's campus, most of our designs, themes, and inspirations come from and revolve around college life.

Tying back to college, the theme of our Spring 2011 collection is glorifying the cheaters of the world (in a cheat to get ahead sense, not on your girl -- although take it how you will!) and those who do whatever it takes to get ahead in life. We just released Delivery 1 of Spring 2011 last week and it consists of crewnecks, pullovers, zip hoodies, and a few snapbacks. It is now available in-store, online, and at a select number of our stockists.

Here is a preview of one of our Cheaters photo tees from our Spring 2 delivery, which drops in 2 weeks. The premise behind it is that Mac & Sosa's Home Run race in 1998 pretty much saved Major League Baseball and really renewed interest in the sport for a lot of fans....but then years later they were both found to be using steroids that year. Whatever It Takes!

Products look great and I respect what you guys are doing. Just don't know if I like the whole "cheaters" theme... maybe one or two items, but the whole collection? If you are representing "Motivation"... I feel like there's other ways to portray that. Just my 2 cents tongueface

Thanks, I appreciate it! Since we are based on a University's campus, we try to base our themes on different aspects of college life and Cheaters is a sarcastic take on cheating. Motivation is just the name of the brand, and our themes change every season or few seasons.

We have a new 'Ornate M' fitted hat releasing this Saturday in a Gray, Black and Burgundy colorway. We initially designed this hat last year to tie back to many of our Spring designs and it just so happens it works really well with the Bordeauxs. We arent really into basing designs on sneaker colors, but this one makes too much sense! This will be available only at our retail store and online site starting Saturday, and will not be dropping at any of our stockists.

Our Rose Bowl 5-panel snapback hats release today at our retail location and online. Obviously they were very much inspired by a vintage Rose Bowl snapback we found. They will also be hitting our accounts later this month along with our other snapback releases!
