Congrats on the internship. In terms of the brand it seems like alot of work has been put into it. Seems dope but I can't say I am a fan of the name or the clothing. Not my personal style but I can see how it could cater to that niche crowd.

1st image - absolutely disgusting
2nd image - a little better
3rd image- looks nice but you can barely read the writing

I'd say hit the drawing board again. Good logos don't come easy.

my opinion, it would sound better called "black flamingo". i think it depends what kind of clothing your going to have......personally, not really my style but you never know what people would like it out there. but i agree with the ratings of each logo...on the dot.

you could probably be a little more imaginative on the logo, but dont get too into "old fashion". my opinion, a little too plain. if your going to go for american made cars and things like that, i would add some flare to it.. mix of new age and old school. i dont really get the "skateboarding" and then hot rods...if you can find a way to mix the 2 better than the brand would look better. add some "skater" style to the look of the shirts, hats etc...make sense? it just looks very bland...

Maybe try using negative design on your logo. Would look much more aesthetically appealing and much more versatile in my opinion.
The font on the third could work if you clean it up a bit and attempt to hand draw it. Then upload it on illustrator and perfect it.
Included some similar logo's to help you out. Let me know what you think.
Anyways keep grindin', just spreading support.

Gotta ask what do you guys think about like "loud printing" so to speak. Sorta like this,



and putting cursing on the clothing also. I've been wanting to start a brand for a while now and finally have the means to print out few shirts. Not going up yet tho. Probably just to a couple friends, but anyways, yeah, opinions?

it's a touchy thing. most of the time, people fuck it up completely and it looks horrible, but rarely somebody perfects it and you get a god-tier shirt. 

I think the best "loud printing" shirts I've seen have come from Supreme.

^ Did you really just ask us if we like your stuff then say that "you don't care, because you get money from it"?

Why would you even ask in the first place? You sound like you've got something to prove.

Honest feedback:

Your stuff is alright at most. I dig the tie die and the new hoodie. Your name reminds me way too much of 'How to make it in America', at first I thought you were biting. Leopard and camo stuff is fairly weak. Good job on making things happen for yourself though.

I doubt your really selling anything to random people, mainly just friends and family. More of a DIY brand , nothing wrong with that if your having fun with it. But you don't care cause you're getting money from it, right?

@stadstockton Try typing text around the path (around the circle).

@Crispy1 Get a better camera (or phone) to take pics. Compose the clothes better too. Presentation is key.

love this questionnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
im a fan of loud printing... not a fan of the cursing, it's just so blatantly giving up on the creative potential and shock value of a print.
esp new brands that use the word 'fuck'... its just so attention desperate and worthless. no different from A&F "fcuk" sweaters..
so many words can paint the mental atmosphere of streetwear - why use the overused?

I really think you should go a different direction I don't see a lot people being interested in a brand with this name. Also too many brands now are using this adjective or color+ animal= company name formula. It's tired.

They may have some potential. Right now the branding is off. When I clicked the link I definitely wasn't expecting to see a Chief as the logo. I'm tired of seeing everyone slap American flags all over their stuff but with this brand it would actually make to have some items featuring the flag but they don't.

these kind of comments are the worst....you knock the collegiate font when this brand does it, but its alright that Pyrex used it even though countless other brands have done it before them?

this is a typical hype baby remark.
