Hey man thanks i appreciate the feedback! I want to introduce a few different types of mens/ women's underwear and eventually i want to be making high end lounge wear.  I am also super into collaborating. I live in Vancouver, and they are made here!

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.

Thanks man! Due to my costs the price is $28, hopefully with larger production numbers i can get my costs down. But i feel you, it can be hard to justify but well worth it! 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.

 Hey guys!
I would like to introduce my first line of mens underwear! Its an athletic fit boxer brief, made in Vancouver form bamboo cotton.

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?


www.cliffordsoftgoods.com
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

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.

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!

It's funny how people come on here talking shit like if this is some battle of the fittest.

We are all here for one reason, to share ideas and opninions, not some competition about who's better or not. Half these little kids who talk smack here are tumblr obsessed, internet personalities. Probably not even older than 15-17 years old.

We (the majority) of us are creating businesses that offer a product.

It's funny the stupid shit these little kids say, makes me think ya'll never had a father figure to teach you how to be a man and mind your own business.

I'm trying to target a whole other market and stay away from the streetwear market. I don't want to have some little hypebeast kid wearing my shit b/c the masses wear it. I want people to wear my shit b/c it looks like a cool fucking design or idea for a shirt. I don't make hyped clothes. I don't make tumblr worthy t shirts.... Now if my brand is highly respected in the streetwear market, then cool. But i'm not about the hype.

Have a backbone and wear something that's nice... not something your favorit e tumblr celeb is wearing. That shit is for the birds and will probably never get you laid.

Thanks man. That one has been much more popular than the "Feelin' it" tee so far. I tried to keep this first drop simple and clean looking, with my budget in mind, just to start getting the name out. The spring designs have more of a message in mind. I've had a good response locally.

Stay far far far away yo.

I was quoted 6-8 weeks. Half of my order took 14 weeks to come, the other half they fucked up on, as in, they took my font design, and used a random text instead. I legit JUST got them last week, and i had paid for them LAST march.

They takes WEEKS to reply to simple emails. 

Yes they have good quality, but they have terrible customer service and are totally unreliable. They also dont tell you about their own pfits tags they sew into the hats even when you order your own tags.

Word thanks man! Love your hats you guys have got done as well. Thats a west coast thing I could not move those hats in Edmonton lol. We have been talking with a few other brands in Alberta and were thinking about starting a collective of streetwear brands that would be interested in doing Cut & Sew with us. We might have an opening for another brand and you guys were my first pick so ill keep you in the loop! 

How is everyones winter line doing??
My Winter line has almost sold out after only a week. Most of my hoodies and sweaters are only left in like a XS or S. Im stoked its selling but i bet we could of ordered more :/ I have people contacting us about sponsorships now and press kit requests but i dont have anything left to send lol. 

I still have tons of hats to move so if any of you HB'ers want a snapback I can hook you up. http://www.edmflavor.com/products-page/snapbacks/

Anyone have any above average success with giving snapbacks out to local celebs/musicians? Or is it the same as doing shirts? We have yet to sponsor anyone and we avoid giving out free stuff and doing sales at all costs so it would be interesting to hear fro others on this.

Also just an interesting bit of info for starter brands. Just because you have low prices doesn't mean you will make more money or more sales. People are asking why i'm charging $75-$85 for hoodies(all of our stuff is made in canada and thats not cheap) and saying its over priced etc. But that stuff sold out in a week. A week. It just proves that if someone likes something they will buy it, regardless of +/- $10. Its easier to move less product for more money than to try and sell more for less.

Flavor is always looking to work with new people, we believe its easier to work with other people in the industry and grow together than try and be the best and hate everyone else. So anyone on this forum looking to expand/do collabs/talk etc hit me up!
