This is one of my first few posts here in the forums, but I have been a long-time lurker of the site.  I figured it would definitely help for me to register in here and hopefully receive some positive feedback from a lot of you guys who are already pursuing the same dream that I am chasing.  Starting a brand is definitely a lot of work and nothing to sleep on for sure.  I've started to realize this over the past few months...Before I introduce you guys to the brand I have started, I'd like to tell you a little about myself and what I am all about.  I am 23 years old, born and raised in Providence, RI and have been skateboarding for 12+ years now.  I have 1-2 years of graphic design experience and I am now going back to school for Business Management to learn a little more about the fundamentals of the business side of things(and it makes a nice back up plan).Now for the company aspect of things; It is called AIGHTYO! (AIYO for short)  I have started small by printing some stickers with the logo and some others with a website address on them and started to paste them around town and handed some out to the skateboard homies to create a little hype for the up and coming brand.  I have a good friend of mine working on a website for me but for now we just have a temporary page up to let people know that it IS coming.  (no blogspot, bigcartel, etc. type shit)With this brand I want to give that raw east coast skateboarding vibe but do so with very uplifting spirits.  This is for those who are less fortunate.  Those who have never forgotten their roots.  AIGHTYO! is a brand showing a very strong bond and appreciation for those who are staying true to the dreams of their youth.I've come to realize presentation is just about everything.  Your image is who you are and what you represent so I have been very careful with that part of this project.  But anyways, check out the temporary webpage, and some of these stickers I have printed and let me know what you think of the work I have done so far.  http://www.aightyo.com/ (first two stickers below)Thanks for taking the time to check out my brand and I would appreciate some feedback whether it's positive or not.  Also some input, certain manufacturers to stay away from, any helpful hints/tips, potential collaborations in the future, etc.  Help a homie out!  Thanks guys.-Steve Faraone

AIGHTYO! how did you make a font like the one that is first..its sick. if you dont mind me asking?

Hey I stared a clothing and all is going well but it has gotten to big for my local print shop and I am looking for a manufacturer that prints custom shirts and does custom woven labels for our shirt also we need a manufacturer that will produce our hats, jackets and accessory with a professorial feel to them such as custom hang tags on the hats and custom tags/labels and patches on the jackets. Does anyone know of a manufacturer ether over seas or in the USA.

You should hit up your local tannery and the people you print with might have some connections too.

From the one picture I see it looks fine but if you are going to claim 'high end' then use some nice hangers and not american apparel tees. There's nothing high end about what you have so far other than that you are copying trends of high end brands.
Thanks! Sorry but that's not a finish product, it just a photoshop mock up. Photoshop mock up just a test to see what it would look like on a tee, in the post I also said that I won't be using cotton or normal material.

Lol how about you give us the money to get it made then. U have to understand that for starting a brand without t-shirts or other casual products, starting a brand is reaally expensive...

Hey dude,I like your brand name and your logo, stuff looks cool

One thing. I was just looking through your about page and noticed you say 'estimated in 2011'. If you were referring to the full form of 'est.' then the correct use of the term would be 'established in 2011'.

If you really meant to say estimated, my bad. I just get turned off by bad grammar in brands about pages. I see it far too often. Good luck with the brand.

Your thoughts?
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Just had my brand opening on December 2nd so we are finally official.  Here is everything I printed and sold for our release party.  Let me know what you guys think - designs headed in the right direction?  Wrong direction?  This thing is still very new so any input would be greatly appreciated and will help me narrow down my brand for my next release.  Progress is a slow process!



Only thing missing here is our women's tees and beanies.  Still need to get some product shots for then.  I'll post them later. 



We had Zumbi from Zion I perform and we gave him a little care package.  He threw on our Oakland Stomper Tee after his show.  He was dooopppe.  Here is a link to one of the songs he performed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfPuNC1rjNU

Closer look at each garment.

Bro you are just like any other dude that want to make a brand cause he thinks he fashionable thanks to tumblr. If you dont got a proper idea why even bother. If you gonna start out and make a brand at least understand whats wack and whats not. All these people should take a good look at how Ronin and Sequence do things

Have you even read the about page on my website? Believe me I'm not just another tumblr brand. I've been trying out stuff on clothing for a couple years now, it's not something like SELF MADE UK, that is like your typical tumblr brand.
