If you haven't already you guys should purchase Steve Vogel' Streetwear book. It pretty much gives you background info on almost every relevant to ever exist. It's important to be a student of this shit and knowing who came before you is important. You can get it on Amazon for a penny. That's how I copped. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0811860361/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

This is a good look man, great book.

and @aaronstrdywngs I gotta agree with everyone on the bigcartel thing. It's highly customizable so you can make it look however you want, good way to differentiate from all the other bigcartel stores out there.

@WORLDWIDEPIRA$Y based in Vancouver, Canada bro! Sure thing.

also @rare1 didn't realize ur from the 604 man, good to see something coming out of Vancouver besides those stupid RUN DMC VANCITY shirts or the outplayed east van tees (kingsway, fraser, nanaimo, hastings shit..)

@allblvck I like the logo, I think the 1st tee is great as it is (great job). Snapbacks okay, but Im biased because I dont really like hats. Last tee is cool, I think it would be perfect if it didn't have camo but thats my personal opinion. Great job over all I'd say. If I had to choose on item to wear it would be the first tee.

First shirt design of LLOWE - Delivery No.1 seems cool, and the Button Up seems cool too...everything else just seems really basic...

In the process of starting my own Brand, I have my design's ready and everything else lined up. What I need help with is a Screen printing company that some people have had some luck with. Since this will be my first order I feel like I will be just taking a shot in the dark if I dont have a couple of opinions on the company I choose.

@givenchy Cool to see someone from 604 on here. I'd never rock/produce any vancity related styles lol (don't think its cool at all). Hopefully we can slowly incorporate some Vancouver (49° 15′N 123° 6W) motif somewhere down the road once we have a strong brand identity.

Also, a question, I dont want to "out" this person, although its kind of difficult as the name of his label relates to my question.

I was checking out the individuals page and it got me thinking. He claims his stuff is "Luxury Excellence" at first I thought cool and left it at that, I can actually see myself wearing one of his tees too cause it is pretty cool. But a while after I saw a post of his tees again and info on them and found out it was printed on Gildan, now there is nothing wrong with printing on Gildans, I have done so in the past. But if I had a label that I am claiming to be luxury, wouldn't it be false pretence if Im printing on a standard T-Shirt ?

I brought this up because I saw someone ask before on this thread about peoples thoughts on these new rise in high-end type streetwear lines. I think there are a lot of people going down that route which isn't a bad thing, but they are seeming more and more uninspired. For instance, a friend of mine asked me to help him with designs for his label and the way he described it, it was just like the sort of Kanye West Givenchy stuff you see more often now, he actually said he wanted a Cupid design...a week later and Good Music revealed their T-Shirt with the Cupid logo. What I'm trying to say is, everything is seeming the same and at this moment I dont see things getting better, or maybe I am wrong ?

Sorry for the essay ! And nothing against Givenchy, I have a couple of pieces myself !


I dont think its a big deal

you buy a $100 tee from one of these lux brands and its all on the standard bullshit tee...usually nothing special about the actual garment that makes it worth $100...its no secret that alot of high end brands use cheap materials and get by on good marketing and brand building.

wether you print on 6oz gildan tee, or a super soft AA lightweight 4oz tee, or cut and sew you own custom fit tee......its still only worth $10......but if you can market and brand yourself as lux and convince the customer to pay $100....then go for it.

its like telling someone that those high end Lebron X nike+ super special edition, isnt real leather so its only really worth $40........if they can build a market and convince you to pay $290...then go for it.

Also....stop thinking that cut and sew tees are better...or more expensive......because they are not!

the reason brands do cut and sew tees, is because its cheaper!!! sure, you get to control the fit and have some input...but its a tee...so for the most part, it will look and fit similar to....a tee.

its cheaper to skip the wholesaler who charges $3 a tee, and go directly to the manufacturer that creates them for .60 .....you need to buy large amounts, but the price per piece is much much cheaper than blanks.

Hypebeast have some notion that cut and sew tees are mystically better than blanks.........well...the blanks where also cut and sewn! probably at the same factory that did the custom order.

there is always the REAL reason (the business reason) behind things....and there is the explanation that companies give to consumers.

But isn't there also a quality factor as well?

For instance, I would love to be able to do cut and sew tees instead of blanks for a few reasons. In tees, I want the thickness of an Alstyle tee but I also want the softness of an American Apparel tee. Unless there is a company out there that I somehow don't know about that offers this, then what is the best route? Cut and sew.
Then you also have the factor of determining your own fit which makes it even better.
I feel like Supreme does this well with their tees; they have good fit, good softness and good thickness which from what I know, is something only achievable if you go the cut and sew route.
Please correct me if I'm wrong but I think these are just as good reasons to create cut and sew as well as the price aspect.

@chadacadabra

cut and sew does offer you specific weight and fit taylored to you liking.......but lets be real, Supreme tees dont sell because of the garment stucture.

you have brands that move just as many units using Alstyle, as Supreme does by using custom cut tees.

if Supreme swithced its whole 2013 season to alstyle blanks.....im sure they would have no problem selling tees.

and about the quality.....

most of these brands that create blanks use the same cotton or blend, make the same weights, and structure.

its more an issue of the fit you prefer....gildan 6.1 oz 100% cotton tees feel the same as the alstyle version.....i just dont like the gildan neck and body cut......i doesent mean that gildan is less quality. they just use different tee cut and sew specs.

The logo is based off the Egyptian Ankh. Our brand is meant to spread positiveness and enlightenment which is how the logo ties in with the Ankh. The Ankh is the symbol for life and Lux Division's mission is to spread enlightenment through life. The last design is the side profile of a Pharaoh. Thanks for the feedback

definitely an inspiration. however, the whole "underworld" theme is not the way we are going. We are separate from the dark theme, we're actually the opposite. definitely appreciate your input though
