Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

alstyle tees are garbage, one wash and the shape of the shirt and feel gets all f ^'ed, look into next level or american apparel they have very good quality tees not too thin not too thick. You want quality if you can't get quantity (if capital is ever an issue) people remember quality. AAA tees are good til after one wash IMO, American apperael and Next level are consistent with their tees too (fit/form) if you buy a big quantity the (Lrg,Med,Sml) are cosistent with the size they are.


How many times have you experienced that problem with Alstyle ? Did you follow the instructions (sorry if that sounds patronising) Im asking because Im close to buying a batch from the states, im still thinking about it..


I use to rock Triple A's for a good while till ProClubs came out later then Shaka came out, If you want a good thick shirt id go with shaka, they are THICK though, a 5-6oz tee is the way I would go but that is just me.

I would actually disagree with him. If you wash tees the right way, then you should have no troubles with them turning into 'garbage'. You do have to be a little bit more careful with Alstyle though because the fit/shape can vary slightly based upon the factories they come from. I do agree the American Apparel and Next Level are more consistent but 4.3 oz is kinda light for a tee; you would be surprised how great an extra 1.7 ounces feels. At the end of the day though, its all based upon what the customer wants, what you can sell and how much you like them.


yea you pretty much got it right. blushing

Alstyle isn't bad for fleece but I think there are others that are better. Beimar and Independent Trading Co. both have good quality fleece that is widely used by many brands; I would recommend those for hoods. I'm sure many would disagree with me but I actually really like Gildan and Hanes for crews but if you are looking for a raglan crew that is thinner, Alternative Apparel makes some nice ones.
There are usually some brands the work well together to make a cohesive line.
Alstyle + Beimar + Gildan/Hanes = Thicker and boxier fit
American Apparel + Independent + Alternative Apparel = Thinner and slimmer fit

thanks i look into that what you think about the logo just a sample for now?
Sep 29, 2012 @ 05:31
Gildan is far too boxy. They resemble something from a Mexican street stand in Tijuana. Cheap cheap cheap.

Yes I will eventually. I have been working on a line for a while now and doing plenty of research.
I just choose not to post stuff up that is unfinished. Personally, I am confident in myself as a designer and considering most people on here have a different style than I do, I don't think I need feedback from others who may not understand/like my concept.
When I do finally post some of my own work, it will be a finished product and if you choose to, you can critique from there. I just choose now to try to give as much feedback that I can and share the knowledge that I have.

I like the bike design but I'm not a fan of the 'finely tuned apparel' tagline, it awfully cliché to me. I think if you still wanted to use it though, you should have switched it with your brand name to make the name more prominent and have the tagline just be an added bit on the bottom.

You would be hard pressed to find anybody that is willing to just give you a 5 panel manufacturer but if you have any sources to trade then I have a couple that I could offer you.
PM me.

I think the tagline works for your audience. If I rocked that style and rode my bike then I would buy that shirt for $30-$40.

straight from Miami... Your designs look like Miami designs.

They're alright. I mean a little cliche, but we got a huge market here for that type of stuff if that's your plan. Remember you don't want to be another dude from miami making the same style of t's....


Where in Miami are you from?

@classyhigh na supposably if your able to change the design 25% of the image you are making it your image is what i have heard. Ive seen people with the mickey image but in the zombie way and its up on karmaloop, n im pretty sure disney would kill anybody in taking or making the disney mickey. But he selling and so far 25% is how much you should change the image to make it yours.

according to a couple of teachers i've had in art school, the whole percentage of changes rule is BS. no matter how much you change or appropriate something to your brand or creative process, someone bigger, more well versed in copyright/creative law can make a case for it. usually it's okay under the circumstances of being a start up brand, but once you start getting noticed, people will start getting more and more on you about their creative rights.

something to think about too with font use.
