Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

@runnerupapparel I saw a picture on tumblr of Josh Hutcherson wearing your hat the other day.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 19:04
@timk125 Haha yeah. Apparently he bought one at this store I have my product at in San Francisco.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 19:06
@runnerupapparel That's pretty rad. Should be good for getting you name out there.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 19:42
@timk125 Yeah it was super random. That's what I thought but the photo itself has to get more exposure. It would be dope if he got a photo taken of him in it that got thrown in a magazine.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 19:54
There's like 20 pictures of him in that hat.

@seventh I've only seen a couple. Could you direct me to them?

Hey guys I have some questions, if you project your label to a clothing store, how does payment usually work? do they pay upfront or when product sells? and how is it improving your sales?

Different retail spaces will do things differently. Some do consignment, some pay upfront. The best bet for you would be to find retailers that pay upfront.

I am currently in a few stores and I have seen a minor sales improvement. I think its important to have physical products in retail spaces that you want representing your brand. Don't just throw your digs into Boys Co. just because they want to buy 50 units off you. Unless you swing that way.

I'm not too much into the graffiti look but it seems like you have a strong passion for it. Which is the most important thing . I would focus on your website layout and navigation, people want to feel comfortable on a site and not that the sites going to scam them of their money. Have and fun with it and good luck.

- check out www.wix.com or www.weebly.com they have some great website layouts

There's several methods people use when working with retail stores. Some go on consignment, but I typically like to Keystone. Keystoning is where your wholesale prices are half the retail price, and the store will double the wholesale price. This way you get the full payment up front.

If the store sells out of your product, they will most likely come back to you. I'm stocked in two stores and I think it's great exposure, and thrilling to know your shit is in a store.

@kingdomcloco I'm really not feeling the graphic you put up here. I would like to see the product clearer. I would opt for a simple shot of a model rocking a tee. I think using a different font would be more effective as well, I wouldn't really ever use a cursive font for something like this.

I really like the front page of your site though, I think it's effective. The clothes aren't my cup of tee but I would get feedback on the line far as the designs and get a group of ppl to review the next line while in production to really enhance it.

The models shots in your lookbook are ok but I want to see ppl involved within your niche in the photos. I'm thinking you're going after bboy's and classic hip-hop fans from what I saw in the blog and videos. And adding that feel to the lookbook would make it more appealing. And I would take out the product photos. Some of the shirts looked wrinkled and I know they weren't at there best. I would just do all model pics for the next campaign.

Hope this helps, just trying to give thoughtful feedback, and I wish you success

- yall real chill with the police
- and one of you know how to ride a skateboard

The model is smoking hot. But that cant be what you depend on, I don't really see any cohesion?

It'd be helpful if people just gave some honest opinions instead of thumbing everything down. It's kind of stupid.

That website...you have to clean that site up man, looks like there was no effort put into it. Take off the repeating wallpaper, change the header picture, and then just try to make it look professional man. If you need any help, shoot us a message or just google for some themes. Where are you hosting your site?

@apollolifestyle I like the idea but the shirts could be a bit better, they look abit amateur to be honest. However, if you fix up the "my pair is better" shirt you could get big rather quickly...look at sneaktip I remember they started off with one shirt in 07 and that was popular enough to make them big.

Tell me what you think of my logo on page 243, I'd appreciate it.
