but why an anchor? personally i think anchors are way overused and so cliche


you're right, but where I'm located, it resonates. this is the location of the original LGNDS store:


pickering wharf in salem, MA

i started using it sporadically on some stuff, but i try not to overdue it

and thanks BLo!

It may work for you but this nautical/athletic theme shit is way to overdone. It doesn't even look that good. Is the name of your brand LGNDS or legends?

I appreciate the kind words guys! Here's a couple new tees we just dropped last week:






Yeah this isn't anything new. It's real simple & clean, but I feel it's nothing to be impressed about. Just seems like your trying to play it safe. I Think the "Established ENTER YOUR ROMAN NUMERAL HERE" Is a trend brands really need to stop along with putting Stars around their words. I Mean it works when used correctly, but it's just getting old seeing the same stuff always.

And my opinion on the pics, Is next time maybe try not wearing undershirts and maybe even go up a size on the tee for your models. Those look just a bit tight on that guy, definitely the red one.

Also I Like you guys gear it's all clean. But nothing really makes me want to buy from you. The reason because this is because you not selling the brand, try selling the lifestyle or image your trying to represent. Just seems like your releasing tees and not giving people a reason to become a fan. just something for you to think about. you know what I Mean?

^^ agree what has been said above. when I saw your other shit a few months ago posted on here I thought the same thing, nothing really fundamentally wrong with the graphic, but nothing special about it. just clean simple designs.

i can appreciate that feedback. playing it safe? probably a little bit, but i think when youre in the early stages there is a line you have to walk with that. and these pics were a little half assed, i admit it haha

the brand is called just LGNDS. when we opened up the first store we wanted to use LEGENDS but as a brick and mortar business we didnt want to run into issues with other businesses using similar names (think sports bars, etc) so the vowels got dropped

i am going to take some of this advice into consideration for sure, the website http://www.shopLGNDS.com is updated pretty frequently but i'm going to put more effort into blogging about events/shows in the area and things like that. thanks all

If this is your shirt, why is there a DSC tag on the bottom? Please explain why you posted this.

How do you all handle requests for sponsorships or freebies from musicians? I get them here and there but have yet to really see any great outcome.

Well said by the way!
I appreciate the kind words guys! Here's a couple new tees we just dropped last week:




I also wanted to provide some feedback on a couple of the other brands. None of these things are being said in a "my brand is better than yours na na nana na" type of way so please don't take it that way.

In my opinion, A LOT of the brands posted in here just look super amateur-ish. Like I rarely see stuff I could invision on store racks next to the big brands. Obviously, that level of quality isn't always going to be achieved on your first drop or anything but you should also consider what's going on around you and how it's going to stack up. HIRE A DESIGNER, find a friend who designs, do SOMEthing....if you have to ask what software to use to design shirts, then you probably aren't ready to be designing shirts....

Blk&Clr looks super well-designed, but I feel like you'd have much more luck setting up tables at Bring Me The Horizon shows rather than on Hybebeast and with kids into streetwear. That may be why you haven't gotten as good of feedback here as you probably deserve.

R=E=I=S ...you might be able to rock with that black and yellow logo but you gotta refine it. A lot of iconic logos could be re-made in about 30 seconds - think Nike logo - but that doesn't mean the logo was originally made in 30 seconds...

Beyond All Reach - I see LOTP aswell. I agree with Jake on this one.

i think you have to be very picky on who you give sponsorships to..obviously your not going to get someone ridiculously famous rocking your gear at first/at all..im just saying if i never heard of your brand and some talentless rapper/musician was rocking your gear it wouldnt encourage me to look into you.

ive been contemplating starting my own line with a friend, will deff post pics when the time comes.

Damn all you guys are mad inspiring! Not sure what I bring to the table, but I'd definitely love some feedback with my line.

I call it SLVT. It's definitely fear therapy for me, and it's something I've been talking about (don't we all) for a long time, and never had the genuine courage to do. SLVT represents the triumph over fears and just going for what you believe in.







Just showing 3 tees here, but if you'd like to check out more designs, visit SLVT.

Any feedback is appreciated! Keep up the good work everyone and I hope I can inspire a few along the way!

Get it in man! Your shit is very well designed. Living in Boston myself, I understand how the maritime theme makes perfect sense. Remember these?:

How much are you guys paying to get stuff printed? I got quoted about 14.6 a shirt (total), 1 side 3 colors. With tags and individually bagged.. high price for a starter

We print our own stuff, but that seems high, you can tag them yourself with a heat press and transfers way cheaper.

yeah that's ridiculous - you should be paying 1.50 a color on a shirt.

Never pay someone for something you can do yourself.

polly bagging is easy. You can supply your own bags from uline and if you want to with a little extra love get the card board inserts.
The inserts aren't needed but I felt it added a extra touch.

And like ECrook said sew in tags aren't really needed either. Companies can do laser heat transfer tags for you. Thos usually cost around $180-$250 for 1000 if they are on color. I got a qoute for $380 for 1000 for 2 print color for dark color and white shirts.

Silk screen itself shop around. I have got quotes for 5 color printing for 3.50 plus screen charge of $10 each screen from some spots (quality prints no BS stuff) and some higher end shops wanting $10-$14 for 4 color not including the screen charge. So it depends on who you go to.
