Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

if most of us had a few stacks we could design and produce menswear or anything else.....but anybody without investors pretty much has to start out as a t-shirt company, nothing wrong with that


Exactly. And all the people that are quick to make comments about "so called t shirt companys" fail to remember that their favorite brands, The Hundreds, Supreme, etc., ALL started out as just a "t shirt company". Everybody has to start somewhere.

Thanks for your feedback, and question, do you own a "so called tee shirt company"?

Sign up at Alstyle site. You will need an EIN (tax id) number and Sales Use number. Unless you are getting cases of 36, I would suggest just dealing with a screen printer. Usually larger screen printers will have basic colored tees in stock and it might save you a few dollars.

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.

Designs are okay but if you plan on 'changing the streetwear scene' you might want to come with some stronger designs than that. They are nothing to call home about.

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.


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


Nice to hear a humble hustle..
Much Respect.
Your hard work shows.
All the best to you and your label.

We are big on promo, you have to be to get your brand out there. An excellent Social media presence is a must, we use or twitter, facebook and tumblr daily but you always have to connect with people in person. Events are a must people have to see. We had our 3 year anniversary at the Atlanta's New Era Flagship(check out the pictures Part 4 Part 3 Part 2 Part 1) last month and we got in touch with some people who had been admiring us from online for a while and that shit is priceless.
