Love Live Swagger are you ASAP Rocky. From a point of view of someone who listens to hip hop, it sounds like the name is copying his mixtape name. Also, swagger is over used similar to YOLO. Especially the name of a new brand you dont want to start off that way. People were upset about 10 Deep doing a YOLO tee, and they have been around forever. Think of a more original name, and change that awful logo. Based on the designs you currently have, it looks like you are going for a Last Kings look. Not a bad thing, just don't be too similar.
Thank you for your feedback, LoveLifeSwagger has been around since November 2008 and we officially launched in June 2009. Are you referring to the 3 icon logo?  
I was referring to the name. It just sounds like the A$AP Mixtape. People might think you jocking him, not saying you are, but you might get criticized for it.
Gotcha, we're working on some new branding efforts to possibly change the name or maybe "re-launch"...thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it!

The word swagger makes me want to puke up that tuna taco I ate late last night.
Another thing, people need to stop coming on here and posting their half finished website, or brands that have 2 products. When you post a link on the forum everyone most of the time looks at it. Based on 8-10 second people decide whether it is interesting or not. If you post a unfinished project, people will immediately leave the website and wont even look at the clothes. Nobody cares if you say more designs coming soon, or website is still being developed. You have one opportunity to make the viewer of your brand decide if they like it. Posting a timeline of your progress is monotonous and only annoys everyone. You are like 80% of the people on here, who start their brand then stop after the first season. 

DON'T POST LOOKBOOKS OR WEBSITE LINKS UNLESS YOU ARE FINISHED WITH EVERYTHING.
right, because people want to know if they are going in the right direction or not before they put so much time and effort into something that people arent going to like....maybe you should understand it from another point of view of the people who come up with an idea, want to see if people like it, then make changes from there too. if you are being told pics will come, its because people are trying to figure out how to do it... the criticism your giving has nothing to do with what people want to hear about their product/website. give criticism thats going to help give them a view point like the above comment about SWAG and YOLO....
I understand your point of view, I wasn't referring it towards you at all. I just get annoyed with people posting things like the Crooks And Shooks things. I am sure your brand is going in the right direction.
agreedsmile i actually see you like to give a lot of feedback, once i get everything together im looking forward to hearing more from you smile

When working on your new name (if you decide to change it) think of something that will be relevant 5-10 years down the line. We might still be saying swag this and swagger that but you risk putting an expiration date on your brand. Just a thought.

i feel like the appeal of the leopard print overpowers your pulse all-over print.
meaning it only looks cool cuz it has leopard print and that's it.
have you considered what your sweaters would literally look like with a pulse line drawn throughout the crewneck?
sure it looks interesting on the jpeg, but it seems as if you are suggesting the print goes all the way around the crewneck and all the way around the sleeves like some optical experiment.
i get a lot of your references.
your name is 'half hearted' your sweaters use a 'pulse' all over print...
sounds like a bad joke to me

Fuck - I used to sell t-shirts on here back in the day, 2006ish when I was in college - I recently had the chance to start my own sunglasses company -- Party Shades - so I thought I'd drop back in to see what's shaking around here.

Our shades are fully customizable and come in a grip of colors with a bunch of interchangeable arms and lenses. I did all the design work for this, would appreciate everyone's feedback. Full line of clothing too. Get Loose!

Hey guys,
You know I like to give constructive feedback on everything that is posted in this thread. Thinking of maybe starting a line, since I worked at a screen printing shop for 2 years I know what quality is good and have the connects to get lower pricing. I also build e-commerce websites for clothing companies, so I know what consumers look for in websites. Also, I have experience working with CS5 through editing all the designs at the screen printing shop. Here is the run down of my idea. I am wondering what you guys think as far as the brand vision/meaning, and the design itself. Starting my own line just seems right, because I have all the tools in place. I am looking to either join an existing company or have a partner join me. Let me know what you guys think. 

Brand Name: The Struggle

Mission Statement: Clothing company that is looking to provide high quality clothing at a affordable price. Growing up in hard times, we understand that looking good is difficult because you don't always have the cash to cop a new tee or hoodie. That's why we created the Struggle to provide people with high quality clothing at a affordable price.

Pricing:
Tees: 6.1oz 100% Cotton Shirts $15 
Hoodies: 10.5oz 100% Cotton Hoodies (Same Quality as Diamond or The Hundreds) $35
Beanies: HeavyWeight 100% Cotton Beanies $15

I have the hookups at the print shops to get the high quality stuff for almost half off what a normal person does. Her is the first design let me know what you guys think. The design is a Camo Triangle with a slightly transparent devil in the middle. On the bottom on the triangle is in script font with the words "The Struggle" in matching camo.

Let me know what you think, and if you would cop it for $35 + Free Shipping compared to the $85 Diamond Hoodies.

Thanks in advance

We always value constructive criticism. We totally agree that our photography on our shop page is shocking and need to sort it out, we are already in the process of sorting this out. But to be fair we have been running for less than a year and we are already in 2 shops selling out, thats got to be worth some credit.
Although people may call our designs 'SAFE', there would be no reason why us as a brand would bring out something hideous just because it might 'set a trend'. We are a lifestyle brand, bringing out clothing that people can wear everyday.
We don't over complicate things and choose the simplicity route as some people say its the key to success.

Just want to thank people who support our brand and again appreciate the positive and constructive feedback.
Nothing wrong with playing it "safe." Pioneers get the arrows...
Better to just say how many are made if you're trying to get your point across.20 made sounds better than 'super limited' and then you come right back out with the same hot garbage right after.I mean, if I like it, I'm gonna buy it...but it's okay to help that one person on the fence speed their stuff like " oh man, there are only 15 left, and I don't know how many are in this size, so maybe I should hurry and stop being a dumb dumb"...that's a better angle than swagyololimitedsusslimitedcollaboblahblahblah... just makes me think that the owner is dumb and that I should save my money for stickers or something.-h_h-

I like the whole concept of the brand, but I'm not feeling the name. It feels bland and generic, and if your target customer is a broke ass teen who wants to look good but could never drop the money on a shirt from one of the 'big' companies, why would they want to be reminded of how broke they are? Shouldn't the name being something a little bit more inspirational? Struggle implies failure, for me at least.

@Larry S. that's pretty much what happen.

but @qrct1 if I may ask what is it about my clothing line name that you don't like? Is that coming from a consumer aspect or just personal opinion.

Selling $15 shirts and $35 hoodies is absurd and will get you no where fast. It hurts you in the long run and makes it incredibly hard to grow your brand when your prices are so god damn cheap. Start high, go low if need be when the time comes. And stand by your price.

@partyshades excellent idea homie. I think if the prices are cheap for those shades people will eat them up! I've always had the problem of not wanting to bring my nice shades out to a big concert. Fill the void!

 The pricing is so low, which means people could cop 2 things instead of 1. The more of our product is out in the world, the higher the chance the person who purchased my item wear it. Exposing it to whoever that person sees. This business model doesn't work for very many people, but it works for me because I have such great pricing.
A good amount of brands work against being on every back in the nation, so there's more to people avoiding that business model than just price margins.
