Let me know what you think of the product/packaging!

Also, what are some things you love/hate about your underwear? And who do you think makes the best mens underwear?

Your stuff is really clean. Fabric looks nice and i like the simplicity of everything. What are you selling them for? Price is always a deal breaker for me with underwear. I have some really nice comfy Tommy ones and Calvin klein but they are $30+ for a pair so i would really only buy one if i was in a store to try them and then not be a repeat customer. Also whats the tag situation like in the back? Nothing worse than an itchy tag lol. Who are you marketing these to? 

Hope that helps! 

Edit: just checked your site. good stuff but unfortunately im not one to spend $33 for a pair of briefs

You need to know that everyone takes different steps when creating a brand. First off, spend some time and think of a good name. Be original. Get a website and your social media outlets running. Once you have that, you need to start making clothes. By the time you put out your first few shirts you will probably have an idea of whether or not you want to continue in this industry. You need to know that your stuff isn't going to just pop off and sell out right away. Take time to develop your brand image. Make it authentic, none of this money-hungry bullshit imitations I see so many brands doing. If your in it just for the money, don't even bother starting.

As for copyright. Don't worry about it right away unless your name is crazy generic. Then you probably wont be able to copyright it and you might get into some trouble.

Honestly dude just start being productive. Understand that this industry is full of seriously talented people who are striving to put out better stuff than you. Ask yourself, 'why the fuck would people want to buy my clothes'. Find ways to separate yourself from the pact.  You'll know pretty quick if your passionate about what your doing.

how did you make a font letter like the first one. its sick! if you dont mind me asking?
you can find downloadable fonts all over the web... just search for a few and you can find tons of different types of fonts (make sure they are okay to use for resale and not copyrighted or whatever it might be.) but you just download and install whatever it is that suits you and mess around in photoshop.  good luck homie!

edit: a lot of people hand draw their own fonts as well~

I really like what you are doing. Super dope and definitely original. I may even buy a pair this christmas!

A couple questions. What direction do you see your brand going in? Just one design of underwear? What about the possibility of collaborating with other brands? Are you from Vancouver or are your products just made in Vancouver?

Best of luck my friend.

The tags are actually printed on the inside, so they are completely tag less (shown here http://instagram.com/p/R1U_JTHnJH/  )! I am going to be marketing these to the 18-30 male crowd who like and will pay for a sleek unique and quality product.

Alot of it is work ethic like are you willing to put money into something that you might not profit from for a while? Alot of risk and a lot of lessons...

Lesson I learned so far is never try to order hoodies in November a lot of shit is on back order... And PLAN AHEAD ... I'm gonna try to get my self more on a schedule

def. order winter supplies around summer time. Sometimes the prices differ as well and may  be cheaper depending on who you order from.

Saying goes.
some people plan to fail

I've recently taken the first steps to get my line off the ground. Started with 3 simple designs, including the brand's logo (raglan tee). Keep up with our progress at http://soundisamovement.tumblr.com/ or follow on Twitter @423SIAM

Rotten Goods is a new brand that's been on the works and now making it's debut with 2 shirts. We know it's a small variety, but something is better than nothing. Look forward to much more apparel and don't sleep on us, this is only the beginning.

Word. This 100x over. You can have mega cool gear but if you dont know anything about marketing or branding you might as well go home now. I know a guy who has one logo, im not a fan of it personally, but he just puts it on anything and everything and he markets it well and hes sold over 6000 pieces.

The schedule thing is crucial. Every 3 months we have a drop. we have contests and promotions and all that planned out on a calendar to maximize our reach on things. Starting to make a 3 month calendar now to make sure everything gets done on time for our spring line. The way Winter is going ill be sold out of 90% of my stock (minus snapbacks) by christmas. So then we switch our focus to networking and getting custom orders and music videos to make money in the other two months and its been going good. This should be a pretty good year for us considering we have only been doing it for a little over a year.

Also, if something can go wrong, it always fucking does lol. Shipments never come on time, products never look the way you think, photoshoots always take longer etc. Gotta plan for everything to go wrong and always have a backup!
