Thinking about doing Strapbacks this fall. Opinions needed.
I already found a source, the hats will feature a brown leather strap with a gold buckle, along with a suede like brim as seen done by Huf on their 6 Panels.



I'm digging those. Maybe do a pinstripe one?


what softwear do you use to make this?

I know you already blowin' up and all but why do you still leave the Alstyle tag in your shirts or was that just a missed oull tag

Question guys is it better to get custom tags for the shirt or is it better to get the size, material etc on the back of the shirt printed on.


I'd say start with printing your washing info on the inside of collars, saves ordering labels which generally have high minimums, saves labour costs and you can get away with making up one screen and masking out rings around each size.


Very True.

Not exactly a new new line, but I never posted in this thread. I released my first four shirts in March of this year. I released another shirt, as seen below, titled "Discover 'til Death" shortly after the initial release. Let me know what you think. I appreciate all feedback and I hope that some of you will follow along with the building of my brand. I have several more shirts coming out this fall. "Like" the Facebook page to be entered in a nice contest I currently have going on. Thanks for taking a look.

^ I like it, but it really reminds me of BBC. Rocketship and the spaceman.

Detail is everything.

trash comment. your style is comprised by you biting off the lifestyle of benny gold and the skate culture supreme represents and if you're not a skater -- that doesn't make you a poser. it does make you a fan. shit you might even call it an inspiration.

read that then come at me.
I like the last design, I don't see any continuity.

I'm not a fan of The Hundreds at all as a clothing brand, but Bobby is extremely inspirational and intelligent. That's an awesome blog entry. Very inspiring.

We're not blowing up at all right now but we are working on getting our tags printed. We're definitely not 100% legit until we have that sorted out.

Working on building my brand outside my typically market, which has been freestyle skiing.

Just launched the Collective Cables, which are unique woven textile iPhone cords.

I know the new iPhone will have a different port, and already planning for that. Millions of people will still have an Apple product with the 30-Pin connector.

Let me know your thoughts!









dope! i think you could blow up as long as you market these right.


This is real dope..good luck with it!

Thanks for all of the feedback i really appreciate it!

I am really not trying to bite any other brand, Im honestly just putting my headphones on and just letting my mind go to work....

I do see similarities in that bloodbath tee but honestly Im just trying to design interesting tees and if I worry about other brands having slightly similar tees ill never be able to produce anything...

I dont know much about printing shirts yet but is it correct for me to print more detailed/colored designs i will need to print using DTG and not screen printing?

Also what are most of you guys getting your websites hosted by? I figure i can use a bigcartel store...

Its still silk screened. you just end up using a lot more screens.

I did this, which is a painting of a vintage chick with tattoos on her for a company in LA.



they ended up using 6-7 screens.

get that ASAP dude. Or at least tear that outer AAA tag if you are using the tear away blanks. You don't want people to know that kind of info. First thing they;ll think is the brand is cheap and maybe even lazy.
It's something really small but can add a better feel to the consumer. At least he won't feel ripped off if he knows you are getting the shirt for $1-2.50 and turning around and selling it for $25-30 just because you added a design to it. Feel me?

halftone (consist of dots to make shadows. The bigger the dots the darker the print, smaller more spread dots make shades and greys)

index printing (4-6 screens color separated to make colors from mixtures of the basic colors CYMK. The arrangements of the dots will make shadows and what not. Online companies can be paid to make these separations for you and for cheap depending on who you go with. Most printers will charge you $45+ a hour for art fee's for something like this. Better to outsource)

DTG (unlimited colors. Only limited to what ink the printer takes. No bright colors, glow in the dark and fluorescent colors either)
