How many New Era fitteds do you guys get printed? I'm trying to get at least 10 for my line

For a run that low, your best bet is to find New Era blanks and get a local shop to handle embroidery/printing. I still wouldn't recommend doing 10 hats. You're basically going to end up spending $20-30 each and it's not much of a flip (assuming usual retail is $40).

Digitizing fees are around $50-$75 per logo, plus per embroidery a hat. Better to get another brand of hat to start off to keep cost's down and you can do more than 10( new era's are pricey ). You will learn quick that everything you do in this industry will save you a lot of money and will boost your profits.

Exactly what he said. Not many brands are doing New Era (even at 144 pieces minimum). Its best to just find a cap manufacturer. If you are looking to get into stores, you should find a way to minimize your cost so you're able to compete with other brands when it comes to wholesaling.

Just finished the SS12 look book. What do yall think? The rest is Here.




I really enjoy your stuff.

One thing though. The black and white lookbook doesn't do these garments justice. Considering their is a fair amount of colour in your pieces I think that you should embrace that. Just my opinion though, I can see how B & W is appealing, although I don't think it accentuates the amazing colour in that button-up.

Keep movin!


I notice you print your designs on Champion. How's the quality on those shirts compared to Alstyle?

I've sampled nearly every tee and believe that Alstyle is the best quality we've come across..I'm interested to hear Wiltedco thinks

I used Alstyle 1701 for my last run. I thought they were decent but didn't like the neckline mostly... It was pretty loose on L and up. I really enjoy these champion and most love the classic C logo on the arm.

Hey HypeBeasters,
I've been lurking this thread for months gathering inspiration and just trying to learn as much as possible.
I just launched my lookbook yesterday and would like comments, feedback, criticism, whatever, I just want to know how I can better the brand.
So a little about us.
The brand is called MYF (pronounced miff). Started by me and my brother, we aim to change the streetwear scene. Influenced by music art and just everyday life in New York City, our designs are inspired our daily life. We want to show people that they can accomplish what they want if they give everything their all.

Facebook
Webstore will be up soon!

Here are the pictures.

5301's fo lyfe.

But for real, best fit and quality for the best price. But when they dry sometimes they like flail out which is a bummer.

looking real good guys. I'm digging the whats in store. The lookbook was dope too, I like how it looks. The photocopy print and how its creased, creative but i think doing that in color (slightly saturated or something) would be cooler. keep it up yall.

seeing some awesome stuff here lately!! some new stuff from LGNDS:






www.shopLGNDS.com


If you don't mind me asking. How are your sales number online vs street?
Reason I ask is out of all of us you line seems to be the most I guess you can say "established"

I'm not trying to gauge my success to your but it seems whatever you are doing as far as networking is really working and as a up and comer trying to follow a big names example can be a little overwhelming because of funds.

I don't remember where i read it but its been said that selling online is a lot harder than selling face to face. People like to physically see the product, feel it, and etc. When people try to buy online they lose all those elements.....plus people HATE paying for shipping.

Who out here has a brand in LA/surrounding areas? It would be awesome to get to know you guys and maybe collaborate on Pop-up shops/events around the area. Its hard starting out, My feeling is if we come together to get our stuff out there its better for all of us. Exposure is exposure. Message me if anyone is down to get something like this going. george@atlasandmason.com

appreciate the kind words as always, everybody...

for me, it'd say online vs face to face is around 50/50 right now in terms of my sales, but i oddly don't find a ton of success in my home city of boston haha.. i sell a lot of online to cali, texas, new york,etc. the success i have face to face is at sneaker shows, hip hop shows, our pop up shop last week, etc. i do find that when put in front of people it's not a hard sell at all while online people have to really want it.

i guess in time i'll have most stats to go off of tho...a couple of my boston stores have done real well while others not as much...but there's a shop i sell out of in san diego that has been killin it. i've definitely just found success in networking, trying to be as helpful as i can to others, and supporting anybody who supports me. a couple months back i released a mixtape of artists i work with (http://lgnds.bandcamp.com/) that helped us gain exposure, the pop-up shop last weekend was a success, and otherwise just shaking as many hands as i can. it doesn't hurt to have quality products and universal clean designs that i feel anybody can enjoy either!

i've been to hell and back with this stuff (hardly an exaggeration with this being the basis of 2 cross country moves, being broke as a joke, etc haha) and i think people see that, see the work that goes into it all, and find the brand something easy to get behind

i suggest everybody try to get out to as many events as you can...it might cost you a few bucks but you'll hopefully make it back and if not, the experience and exposure definitely has a lot of value
