I really appreciate the tips and feedback, it means a lot to me.
The main goal I keep in mind is that I'm making clothes that I want to wear. And If a company has something similar, So be it. I designed these out of my own creativity. As a great being once said, "If you make it, they will come." So I'm not too worried about selling them.
But again my deepest Thanks.
"If you make it, they will come."
Im sorry but thats the laziest thing I've read on this thread. No one just makes a shirt and sits there and watches it sell out. That will never happen. Acquiring a customer is not free, it doesnt just happen. You have to work really fucking hard to make it in this industry. If you think 'oh ya ill make some cool shit and it will sell itself' you're in for a treat.
Not trying to dig on you at all, its just after doing this full time and talking to tons of others thats just an incredibly silly quote for one to go by.
How many times do you see something on karmaloop, or HB, or the internet as a whole, and say oh thats cool i want it? Pretty often i would assume. Now how often do you actually buy it? Exactly. Having a nice looking product NEVER guarantees it will sell. And something is never sold until you HAVE the money in your own pocket.
