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.

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?


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

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.

Alright, so why Apollo? He was the Greek good of poetry, philosophy, sun, and a few other things. I chose that because like him, our brand encompasses multiple things whether it was music, art, sports, or anything else. The lifestyle is about being excellent. Like the Greek Aristotle said 'we are what we repeatedly do, excellence is not an act but a habit" translation : excellence is a habit for us. The Apollo lifestyle is about being excellent at what you do, pushing boundaries and daring to be different.
The masks? Those symbolize that no matter who you are, you can be part of the lifestyle, as long as you want to push hard. Like it a blank mask for you to decide your excellence, who you want to be. Cause if people don't remember you, you didn't do anything memorable.

I realize this video kinda sucks at showing anything, which was why I've been working on an official one to explain the story.

Hey guys, I'm launching a new line around April. Tell me what you think about the brand name and logo (be as harsh as you want).

EDIT: Just got an update from my designer literally a minute ago, minor detail changes but looks a big improvement in my opinion.


I like this alot, but what is Lifted Concepts? I feel like you could do some things with this

Hey everyone - We just launched our Kickstarter campaign to help produce some key pieces from our debut collection. If you're able to take a minute to check it out, pledge and get some cool rewards, or even spread the word, it would all be a huge help and greatly appreciated as we look to move forward.

Can we some designs? About the logo, first of all i wanna say that using a triangle and an eye and make your design look a bit mysterious is laziest, non-conceptual and lame thing to do these days because it has been done so much times. Now that i said that, i wanna say that i think your logo is a bit to much, i would say only using the eye cause that would look really dope on a tee though. So don't get me wrong im not really hating on the design, just the fact that you didnt come up with something original although the name is lifted concepts (which makes me expect very original concepts and designs)

@liftedcity Thanks for the feedback homie, yea I spruced the sgirt up a bit, Instead of saying Pair I actually added tow Ace of spade cards or Two Ace of Diamonds cards instead of saying pair. It brings the shirt out more, and it adds more graphics to the shirt. but thanks again for the feedback homie, its greatly appreciated

I know it kinda seems like a taboo subject to share your contacts but I wanted to know some good companys for shirt production. Everyone on here seems to prefer that over hand done screen printing. Im looking to invest in a screen printer just because it seems really rewarding to hand screen print your own stuff but down the road I know im going to want to have a professional company to help me make cleaner shirts. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be amazing. thanks


Confused by your question. I'm willing to help but I don't understand what you're asking.

Two things. First, your squiggly line tee looks a lot like the logo for Imperial Motion. You might want to change that (if these are just concept designs). Two, we (kind of) started on Kickstarter too. It's a great tool and a good way to get the word out. The one problem I have with your project/ company is that it doesn't seem like you guys are that serious/ committed if you're counting on Kickstarter to pay business licensing fees. I'm sure you've guys have spent plenty of time and money on this but that's just the impression I got.

Good luck.
