Would you like to see the She Saw Everything long sleeves come back out? What color would you wanna see come out. We were leaning towards a yellow/black colorway, but we wanna hear your opinion and see what color you think would be cool to come out with.

Alot of Cut&Sewn items in the works for next week, We're focusing on putting out visuals for each item that we'll be putting out in the future. As corny as it sounds it gives you a chance to give you a feel of how it can be worn in certain situations. Pictures we feel like dont really give the customer too much justice. Plus we're really getting into photography and videography. Umm until I get some official video editing software and shit the videos wont look Spaceghostpurrp esque. But thats what we're essentially trying to present to you. So forgive us if our stuff still looks amateur if you're a fan of the brand. We started last November and we've really listened to great advice so our learning curve has been really sped up. Long story short in the future maybe we'll have some better editing software for the videos we present to you guys. What we want to present is raw, grimy, dirty, clean, luxury, elegant, streetwear. Something like the mix between two worlds. Like something corny like"when these two worlds collide type thing" but not so much. Like if Iceberg did a collaboration with Prada. Or Fubu with Versace in their prime. Man it would've been classic. Hopefully we'll be able to do the same you know. Until then we want to show you some grimy images but mix it with luxury. Umm we want to do this for the future and as lame as it sounds, we want to come out with a video for every song so that the true fans of the brand can see what goes on behind the scenes kinda. Also so you can see the designers in the clothing that we're selling, kinda so the fans can see whos behind the mask..its us no other models, no other designers, no other graphic artists. But we wanna keep it that way for forever. We just wanna keep it raw and we just wanna keep it funky. So long story short, expect more from us and expect it to get even dirtier and dirtier. Thank you umm for the people whos supported us since last Nov. and whos been there through all the mistakes. Umm lol I'm pretty sure there will be plenty more, but thats fashion, thats streetwear, hang in there and hopefully you'll be there to watch our next moves. Thanks

ok maybe i shouldnt have went off like that but shit you was pissing me off bruh, is that honestly how you feel. Give us some harsh criticism here, not just what you said the other day. We're passionate about this stuff so hell yea I snapped. But give us the harshest criticism you can so we can continue to grow.

its just a new direction we're moving in. Alot of our new stuff will have hella colors, two/three/four designs per shirt. Plus our seamstress does it all by hand by herself, on the same bed she sleeps on//////(the floor), so its kinda that and the fact that we want to continue to push the envelop and innovate alot of new things. But hopefully you'll see something you at least like this week. We should have a release every day for the next four days I believe. If everything goes according to schedule. Like I said shes the only seamstress and shes working her booty off.

I was unaware that the pieces were cut and sew (apart from the newly added Giovanni's Imminent Revenge). From their cut I assumed that they were standard blanks from wholesale companies.

You offer one monochromatic long sleeve t-shirt priced at $172 (Fireworks Under Zantoratia) and another with the same print layout (chest and sleeves) that goes for $326 (Escalado LS). From a screenprint point of view the only major difference between both long sleeve t-shirts would be that the more expensive one features 4 additional colours. How does printing 4 extra colours generate a $154 price increase?

Having said all that, I didn't want to bash your business in any way or form. I was simply making some observations and trying to give constructive criticism. Personally, if you're cuts do look standard, why not consider printing on standard/wholesale garments? This would minimize product costs for yourself and ultimately making the price point more attractive for customers. I love the idea of cut & sew garments but as a start up company, I believe it would be wiser to offer products at an affordable price until you have gained a significant fan base that would safely allow you to order small bulk of your cut & sew garments. This would assure that you can benefit from the use of economies of scale and can sale your garments at a more affordable price range. I say all of this because for $180 I've purchased a hand sown 100% cashmere sweatshirt. Paying up to $326 for a 100% cotton long sleeve t-shirt seems like complete nonsense to me as the product is very much inferior to its price.

Just out of curiosity, what are you innovating? I literally see a design that looks like a 12 year old with knowledge of religious premises came up with. The prices are ridiculous, it's not going to work out. A cotton garment that is priced at $60+ is fucking stupid. $326 for a fucking shirt that cost probably $25 bucks to make is the biggest shit fest I've ever seen on Hypebeast. Come on man, this is ridiculous
i definitely had something different than what im about to say now. I had to edit the post because I wanted to quote you so we can keep the conversation going because this is great advice for our brand from real people whove been critiquing brands for awhile. But long story short I think we have to do something different than the rest of the streetwear brands out here who dont push their price to a certain level. That makes it so that another market may or may not want to buy your products. Like us putting our price on that level is pushing us forward into the field of fashion that we want to change which is the high fashion side of things. The reason why we look up to Iceberg is because they stayed themselves but they were on the runway. they still kept their streetwear element intact but they were on the runway. To get out of this Streetwear bubble you have to lose followers on social networks, you have to get the criticism I'm getting now (which I dont mind, I want criticism), you have to take a risk to get out of that bubble. We want to keep our streetwear aspect but  change both the high fashion side and the streetwear side at the same time. The streetwear people wont be afraid to charge what they want because they'll have more confidence in themselves, and the high fashion people will step it up and not just do silhouettes like suits and blazers, blah blah, theyll get their hands dirty like they did when they first started. But this is all a dream

I have no clue how to respond to this, umm first off your comment was very insightful as was @octose's. We need this advice we need to grow and get stronger for what we want to accomplish. Moving forward, I think you're right about the fact that we would increase our fan base at a lower price, I get it but at the same time, we're putting in more work than the other brand that you're describing. My partner is literally sewing up another item that you'll see pretty soon, I have no clue when but none the less. She's sewing it up on the floor not at a desk or a table, no also she's sewing it up alone. We dont buy our stuff wholesale we buy it in limited quantities because all of our products are in limited quantities. Some people hate when I say this but we literally are drawing the silhouettes and patterns that you see for our cut & sew by ourself. We're not looking in a pattern book in the store and copying off them. No we're just going for it. Every project is hands on and we take our time to present to you a well thought out clean product. All of our graphics are drawn by us two with a sharpie and a ruler. Someone told me something around this, he said "something sold out faster because it said artisan beside it"  well we're not going on that route but if people want to say its avant garde shit then they can say that. But we dont think of it like that. We're just putting the world that we drew up back in college on clothing. We understand that the prices are higher but hype just doesn't just dictate prices. Its sometimes what you went thru to make sure the product was born.

Personally, the designs are pretty good. I act. went to your online shop to purchase until I saw the prices.
Look around at other upcoming brands/independent brands like Sequence, Ronin, Stray Rats, Dertbag, DPI, etc. They made it big starting here on HB. Gotta gain a fan base first before you charge ridiculous prices.

Very interesting textile. The sewing looks extremely sloppy though.
