im going to be honest
it is garbage, it looks too much like obey/supreme/other dead streetware
we need something fresh this seems like rehashes of other brands.


Yea im thinking your talking about that shirt, idk about the designs, doesn't remind me of anything out right now. What about the logo and name? YOu think it alright?

I'm at work and can't make a official "sample" profile but here is a quick look of what I have for my Fall/Winter drop

Let me know what you think. I'm using this drop as more of a promo kind of thing. This was the process I went through with the whole rebranding thing because of some of my previous releases weren't going in the direction I wanted really.
So I'm focusing more on the name and the logo like I SHOULD have done when I first started. I was so focused on making quick cash to fund my other shirts, things slept away from me.

It shows. There's an obvious cohesion in this collection. You were always money with the theme, but I think you've got something cool here.

Are these drafts or more finished?

Hey guys, quick question. Do any of you guys have ideas about where I can get tees printed? All the screenprinters in my area are geared towards supplying businesses with tees rather than providing people who want to make a profit with tees. Any suggestions?

These are pretty much the finished mock ups.
Two shirts I am redoing. Banks & Robbers cause I didn't make enough the first go round (only 16) and those were gone quick. And the 2 colored logo coin and pig because I printed on gildan and hated those shirts but also different placement.

Pretty much all other designs I have that I didn't show have a core them around them. Either money, banks, Sledgehammers (for breaking banks)

Shoe shirts are cool and help bring in money but I felt pissed off when I looked back at it all. Should have made them more of an exclusive thing rather then main focus.

Close up of the Bet On Bank one


And this one I'll be getting ready for November...

I believe simplicity can be a beautiful thing, but there is a crossroad between genius and lazy. One of the hardest things to do in design (in which I believe some of the best designers do well) is to make a design as simple as possible while still relaying a dynamic message. Some of the best logos in the world are unbelievably simple yet speak volumes.

I agree with minsct. It's a very popular misconception. Creating 'simple' designs isn't simple at all, it takes a lot of skill to achieve simplicity.

I think it's damn near impossible to create simplicity straight away, but rather the best simplicity comes after that millionth sketch, when you've reduced and reduced, rather than started with a brilliant absence of content.

Yeah. I mean with shoe shirts, I'm sure SOMEONE's gonna buy, who doesn't wear/love sneakers?
I just feel like if I'd personally rather make something I have to dig a little deeper for, that not only myself, but something that's about, SOMETHING, something ultimately larger (in concept and theme, but of course with elements of myself) than myself even, people will ultimately have deeper connection, than if I print a t-shirt you could imagine seeing retail at Urban Outfitters/ Zoomiez (yes HUF is at Zoomiez, ZOOYORK, etc.. but at first they weren't so g-pass from me).

this direction is a better look, keep grindin fam.

they type of consumer that likes a brand or design, but will only buy it if its in a particular store...is not a very smart one, and is only a small % of the tshirt buying community as a whole.

Thanks perhaps this is not the right demo, but with strategic alliances forming with Vans, et. al. and almost 1500 fb likes I think we are on the right track. Create, have fun.

at some point...you have to think bigger than the hypebeast kind of consumer that wants everything to remain small, exclusive , for themselves and the people that they think are cool...

most brands have moved well beyond that type of consumer and target the larger streetwear audience....brands are in 5x more stores than 5 years ago, and accessible to everyone through multiple -Brand owned webshops, and online megastores.

....i know that as a hypebeast kind of consumer, some of you frown on certain retail options, but as a potential business owner....what you may consider "selling out"..or "falling off"...may have actually expanded a brand into a bigger and more steady customer base.

I thought of that same thing last weekend when I went to the mall walked into Revolution. I didn't see a lot of exclusive brands there but more of the smaller lines. They did have AKOO (T.I. brand) and Truckfit (Lil Wayne) but I also say more of the Indy, I guess you can say, brands there as well.
And you would think why would a rapper want to put his brand next to smaller line priced possibly cheaper and why Hundreds and what not woud not.

But would you dislike Boutique established brand less if you saw them have a account at say Zoomies...?

once you reach that success level, it's what you do with it that determines your credibility. kids are hating on supreme b/c more people know about it now. i doubt james jebbia is mad at that... supreme is worth over 40 million dollars.

You really can't control who buys your stuff. I'd say, how you keep your company ran or where it's sold at can determine if you became a sellout. for example, look at diamond supply. he's denied offers from nordstrom and saks 5th avenue to lisence and sell his brand. he said no. he also creates a certain line exclusive for pacsun and zoomies. he keeps his main line exclusivley sold online and to certain boutiques and at his flagship store.

had he gone the fubu or rockawear route, then yeah that's wack.

with success comes integrity. remember why you're in the game.

a lot of hypebeast kids have shit twisted. i'm 27 years old... i got into streetwear in 2004 a when you had to dig deep. i would wait in line for dunks and classic running shoes. i wore the hundreds, lamar and dauly, and brands like that before the hype took over. a lot of these hypebeast kids don't even know where and how or why shit developed. so i feel they have no say in what "selling out" is.

it's always about the money even though i'm not doing it for the money. but at the end of the day, i want to eat off this and feed my family off this.
