- Apparel
Many of the brands posted on HB seem to be created by people who never really did any art/graphic design. So... there is a lot of lack in professionalism. The designs you have are very professional. Not my taste, but I know the designs could sell to people with similar tastes to yours. I think the best way to start your own graphic tees brand, is to be a graphic designer/artist or to hire one.

- Website
The first thing that came to my mind was "pro". The first second I saw the page, it looked professional. It has a blog, lookbook, store, etc. I even like the mailing list and twitter/facebook links. The thing it's missing is the "about" section at the top though. Also, I like clothing brands that have a lookbook; it just seems more professional.

- Conclusion
I used the word "professional" a lot in this, because professionalism is a major factor in doing business. This is seriously not my style, but this is the best indie streetwear work I've seen on HB. I love how you thought of almost every detail prior to your launch. The bar has been raised for everyone else.

I have to agree. The look-book makes it seem like you have followers even though they are your models. As well, your website looks "organized", which is important. Seems like a lot of "smaller" (in terms of scale and budget) companies lack that sense of organization on their websites and companies as a whole. Also, an About Us link would be cool. I don't think you need to add a pic of yourself but having that gives the buyer a sense of buying a from a legit company and "knowing" the company a little. Also an explanation of the company's name. my 2 cents.

thanks for the feedback guys, we are definitely listening. we take a lot of time planning out each aspect of the line, photo shoots, the site, etc. so it's rad to hear someone is taking notice.

the about link is at the bottom and intentionally left off of the top. we don't want it to really be a huge deal, but we will probably expand on it soon. as to the company's name we do explain it, kinda.

Your logo vaguely looks like a Swastika, lol, which really doesn't matter because you have really good line! Kudos.

When in doubt, show that bitch your Slurpee cup collection.

i would have probably copped the jacket if it didnt have the logos on it, also looks like its a bit baggy fit instead of the slim fit. looks like a dope piece but theres too many decent jackets similar to that that looks cleaner and more fitted in that price range. not into the skull stuff but nice website

thanks to everyone for the feedback. The denim is a slim fit, the photo might just be a bit deceiving because at the time of the photoshoot we only had a sample 1 size up from what the dude normally wears.

I checked out your site and your stuff looks great just like everyone else said. I'm curious about what your logo means. Is that something you can share?
