Nice I like the tiger theme of the brand but is that what you plan to use like 3-4 years dpwm the road. i can see it kinda being boring after a while..just wondering


It's the logo of the brand, it's a tiger with horns like a rhino, 3 eyes, and human ear as well as normal tiger ears, so actually the logo is just bullshit but it looks dope (imo). BUT that is exactly the concept behind my brand, just making designs without only one subject behind it and not meant to be taken to seriously. Cause these days you got brands that release an almost white tee, and there is a 7 page concept behind it.

btw, FLAUWEKUL is a corny dutch word for Bullshit


i'll be honest homie, all I saw was a tiger. i didnt see the horns, ears, extra eye thing. but the design still looks dope even if its just a normal tiger. i just didnt see the other things because adding those things just blend in with the tiger stripes and you can't really see it.. unless that's what you were going for.


It indeed was what i was going for, i wanted it to still ook natural though.

it's too detailed for it to be translated to other mediums easily
you want it to look good small or big

you may be limited when you decide to put that on a hat
the shading on the tiger may be too much

What up! I have been selling my tees locally for a little bit out the trunk of my car, tradeshows, and online. I never really was educated on what streetwear was. It was just fresh gear where I come from. So I created my line because I wanted something different to wear and was getting tired of wearing the same gear as everyone in my neighborhood. As I got started I really got into the community which eventually landed me hear to Hypebeast. This forum is great. I respect everyone's hustle in this thread and see now what I've been missing out on.

Anyways before I start sounding too corny. I recently got onto kazbah.com and learned their were over 500 brands on there. Theirs tons of great gear and plenty I would pass on at the same time. I just wanted to get some brutally honest opinions from folks around the world on my tees. Let me know how you all feel and I would appreciate the support by liking sharing or whatever all my contacts at the bottom. Thanks

i checked out your tumblr and i liked how your design vision is consistent and dope,
but your bear in the stars design is questionable as to who this tee is catering to

Im sure everyone isnt going to love what i have to offer regarding the clothing and thats fine, im not trying to appeal to everyone!!!

Thanks for the feedback guys

thoughts..?


no offense but i hate the whole aesthetic of it. it seems like it has the potential to go somewhere but the quality is not there. For your company''s sake i hope u guys come out with some quality stuff n a HD camera...just my opinion


From what I understand these are just concepts, as in photoshop mockups or something of the like. If you could vectorize the images or actually get them printed and take a picture I bet some of the stuff would look pretty good. That being said, some of the shirts have more potential than others, I'd definitley rock the starry nights cap though.


Yeah, thats pretty much it..they are mock ups. I guess it could be complement to the mockups if someone thinks my mock ups are actual photos!! The renderings are in vector format placed into a psd file. and these are 60% sized jpgs of that file so its a bit compressed!

Yeah some of the shirts are pretty dope and some are pretty minimalistic, Im trying to incorporate a preference for either within my aesthetic..

I know my demographic sometimes may want a tee they can just throw on and skate in.. or one they can go out in.. ya know.. im trying to market to either side of that.. =)

That starry night 5 panel is being sampled as we speak! Ill post the pics from the manufacture once i get them!!


I agree with most of your statements so far. I've talked to many retailers before and line sheets don't have to be elaborate. Retailers just want to see a mock up of the product. I've seen some of the bigger companies line sheets and they were no where near as nice. I like a lot of your pieces, especially the starry nights 5 panel. I'll need one of those as well.

My only critique is that if this is for retailers you need to add your wholesale price, and suggested retail price, and your min order (if your going to have one).

@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.

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.

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
