Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

July 25, 2012 @ 18:45:09
I pretty much need that "Don't Sweat the Technique" shirt in my life. Eric B. and Rakim references get me everytime.
Hey guys,

I have a new brand that I started earlier this year called The Braselton Club. Would love if some of you could check it out, lemme know what you think. You can get there at www.BraseltonClub.com! Thanks.. Here are some pictures from our latest shirts...

if you need to ask people if they like the names, you probably should not do it. stick with your gut and don't rush it, be confident with it. choosing a name for your brand is like naming a baby.


Hey mate, thanks for the feedback, i loved the name 'Prime' but then when i done a quick search i relised it was already in use, so had to think of another name, im leaning towards 'Outsiders Apparel'.

How did everyone else come up with their brand names and what is the story behind the meanings?


I gotta agree that Outsiderz Apparel is a really dope name. It's catchy, it's original, bringing a fresh vibe to the table. It's definitely not something that's played out. I especially feel the "z" adds a sophisticated touch to the aesthetic of your brand. I mean that's gotta be swag authority right there. Like how you used "apparel" as if it's a flip off American Apparel. I like it a lot. Outsiderz Apparel is a name that really fits to a certain niche market out there. It's like your brand is for a select number of cool individuals. "Outsiderz" definitely illustrates a vision cast against the mainstream ideals. That's cool right there. Being an Outsider. Yeah we about dat Outsiderz life fo-sho-doe. We about dat underground anti-mainstream lyfe because we do what we want and don't take shit from other people right? Yeah so print out 100 tees that says "Outsiderz Apparel" and sell them outside your house and make sure you watch out! Bring your riot shields cuz these are going to sell out fast!

damn lol

how serious are you man..


Cool man i will take your patronising negative feedback on board man, thanks!

you should try to stray away from ending the name with 'clothing' and 'apparel' and that stuff. OUTSIDERS.

Yeah thanks i think i will drop the 'apparel' it was just a thought.

The reason i am going for 'Outsiders' is not because ''It's like your brand is for a select number of cool individuals.'' I was a backpacker for 2 years and travelled Australia, Asia and South America mainly camping and trying to live on as little money as possible and I want to make designs and a brand around the art of travelling, living life outside your hometown and the beauty of what other countries and cultures have to offer, thanks man.

Pretty much posting these to show y'all what not to do lol. Got the photos back from our recent shoot. Lighting was bad and background was off. So we are doing it all over again.
But it was a good experience playing around and learning some stuff.
I'm also in the process of "recreating" the brand and establishing the name more. Something I should have done in the beginning but got side tracked with trying to fund the brand. But oh well. I have already broke even with all the money spent and have extra to spare. The Summer/Fall line from my perspective goes way harder then my recent mediocre stuff. Just happy I had this reality check sooner then later.

Not digging the flames deal, too ed hardy / biker gang shit in my opinion. Also, the whole brass knuckles theme has already been done by 10 deep in my opinion. Good luck trying to lay stake after they have seen such huge success.

On a lighter note, keep at it dude. You will only get better.

ay everyone who is listening...
Starting a local Baltimore brand with my friend. We will hopefully have some pocket tees by late october, early november.

We just made a facebook page, and we would really appreciate the support if you could like it.
http://www.facebook.com/harborgoods

We will hopefully have some preliminary ideas for the tees up in the next week or so. Also, we need help coming up with a logo. If anyone is up for it, shoot me an email with like a cool logo design or whatever, that would be sweet.

garpres@comcast.net

The brand is called Harbor, or Harbor Goods, Harbor Ltd., etc

we would really appreciate the support.

Peace!

thanks...

that's sorta the market i sell to most... Tapout/Affliction fans. i like to get opinions from the streetwear realm though because those are the styles that inspire me. i know my designs don't really fit the HB mold but this is where i get the best criticism. i'm not worried about stepping on 10 Deep's toes, if you will, because i attract a fan base that is most likely not familiar with 10 Deep.

Hey guys! If anyone is interested in starting their own company and would like to look into buying out an already launched company, we are looking to sell our company and everything with it (brand name, inventory, website, emails, and all of the other pieces of hard work we put into this company over the last couple of years) at a very discounted price. The success has been great with the brand, but we are on to new ventures and not able to keep up with the time constraints of running our line. This would be a great opportunity for someone looking to start their company with a solid foundation and little money. Let me know if you have any interest at Contact@Projectxxiv.com and we can discuss further from there.


haha you've got to be kidding me lmfao

Ive always been interested in making my own clothing brand. Ive seen some pretty awesome stuff you guys have made. My question is, can someone lead me through the steps of making your own brand? Like how you make the brand/logo. Where you get the clothes to put the logo on. Then the steps of selling the clothing. PLEASE and thank you[/quote

Read a book called "How to Launch a Kickass T Shirt Brand", since you don't have any fundamental knowledge. (Not being a dick). Asking people in here won't really get you any answers. You have to work for it, at least one person post something like this every day on this thread.
July 26, 2012 @ 07:30:34
Yo guys, just a heads up that I'll be having a booth up in DTLA tomorrow, 850 S Hope Street, Los Angeles CA. 90015
will be selling there with a handful of other brands. If your in the area you should definitely come check it out
July 26, 2012 @ 08:22:26
Was wondering if paying a company would be better compared to printing on my own for screen print.i understand that it will be cheaper if i do it but i feel that it might be better quality.
July 26, 2012 @ 08:28:44
@tubb3 double edged sword .... 1 you will learn how to do it yourself...but 1st do you have all the equipment needed? also if you pay somebody they are responsible if something goes wrong.
July 26, 2012 @ 08:38:25
@tubb3 yeah if you have the equipment go for it. You have total control over what you print and the amount and custom orders. If you have the time it would be one of the best things you can do.
It will be cheaper in the beginning to use a outside source because the money won't come out of pocket in such a large some say for example if you purchased your own equipment. But in the long run if you have about $2k to drop with no worries get your own equipment.
