people have a jaded false perspective about street-wear, perpetuated by the misconception that BRANDS CARE ABOUT YOU! sure they care about the paying customer as a whole.....but they don't care that YOU have been rocking supreme for 5 years and some other kid just bought his first tee yesterday.

they don't care that you researched the designer, and took the time to read the b.s. mission statement on the blog, and some other kid just walked in the store an bought a tee because it looks good.

they don't care that YOU only buy from the flagship store and other consumers buy it from karmaloop and Zumies.

there is no survey required in order to buy your fave brand. you don't have to know the history of the brand. you don't have to be part of the lifestyle. you don't have to know where the exclusive cool stores are...............

all you need is money.....other than that, the brands don't care.

If you are willing to digest that, and stop being a fan/customer, you can begin to see the truth and have a successful brand and biz.

What do you guys do for tags for hoodies/crewnecks? I was thinking woven or heat transfer.. I just noticed UVT uses some sort of heat or screen print.

Never done them on my crewneck but I think the only option is laser print heat transfer or woven tags just because of the style material in the inside of a crew silk screen won't come out right.
Hanes uses a heat transfer as well as other.

I appreciate the blog post, Stephen, it really brought some light to Agenda that I haven't ever heard about. I'm curious, what other brands were in the Primer section with you (slash brands worth noting)?

I've had this for a while since it was supposed to be my first summer release, but I decided to fall back a bit and change some of it up and release for fall.

Thoughts on what's here so far? I got a couple stores willing to sell some in their shops, but I want to have it as crisp as possible before I send them some.

I think it depends on what you've used before. If you normally use wovens then go with that. Personally like those better than screen printed tags, that's just me. Wovens on crewnecks are easy but hoodies can be tricky. Unless you have some some flat tags that aren't folded or a big enough machine so the hood doesn't get in the way.

American Native. 5k is good capital to have. I say, source A LOT of illustrators. find a good six. narrow it down. A good logo is important. But first, before all that, for the love of god, get a concept together.

Yooo! Good read man and that is allot of good information for other people who are seeking out to start a brand. But what you said is true. Its all about the money now and days and on top of that you are selling your designs. I read up on a few things about successful clothing business and they say its the design that people are drawn to your brand and not so much of what the brand stands for now days. But keep grinding tho!

flauwekul. is that a dutch word?


Yes it's a corny(don't know if corny is the word im searching for XD) dutch word for bullsh*t, I've been trying out alot of brand concepts and names. Till I came to the conclusion that I don't like to think in one concept or something to think in concepts so sometimes I just want to make bullsh*t that looks dope! :D

@alhajisheriff 5k is ALOT OF MONEY over a 3 month spam I hussled around 600 bucks to get everything started for me.. Shop.theundg.net ... That goes for stickers pins..shirts..printing...website urls...now I know I I ha 5k I would e able to make a lot happen.... So just spend it wisely ..:don't try to spend 5k I'm 1 season ...

Depending on when you start factors in how muh money you will spend... I say best time to start is summer... Because all you need is shirts... Winter is A bit more since hoodies and jackets....

Also this is for everybody dont depend on the basics and think realistically .... Don't think you unknown brand will be able to push 200 shirts of 1 design for 30bucks .... Diamond started selling ts for like 10-15 bucks back in the day

what made you decide to go with the "V" instead of the "U" for the word runners? ......

Front Runners looks pretty clean with the "U".
