Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Dec 28, 2012 @ 20:55
sorry for posting so many times it said it didnt post
Thinking of starting a new brand
Thoughts / suggestions on these?

I've seen worse and I've seen better.... I just feel like this lacks a bit of originality... My main suggestion would be to change the name to something not so generic; maybe something that incorporates neat but is more than just a four letter word.  

Also, when coming up with designs and a logo you need to be working towards a certain image.... You posted one picture with polka dots and an animal hiding in the corner, but then the next one is smooth and simple.  I understand you want to switch it up a bit, but you need to keep a certain vibe going.  Literally changing your name from NEAT to something like "Pretty Neat" (sorry for the bad example) could make a world of difference.  It seems like you are starting off on the right foot though and these designs can easily be improved.... 

Also, where in Rhode Island are you from?  I live here myself and it would be cool to chat with someone local who shares the same dream, ya know?

if you could please Share a link directing me to where you have seen ideas or Concepts similar to these. Or a Clothing Line/Designer who has made something like this. And if you tell me Givenchy's Riccardo Tisic then i would have to disagree with you for bout of our designs are very different. Thank you for your opinion tho bruh. 
why wait for positive feedback?
instead, what could be more helpful is, you explaining your collection and the range of influences you have accrued in your experience in fashion.
let's not talk down Tisci like that.
So if you will please, explain.
What exactly were you thinking when you were coming up with this LOL:

particularly since you have so deliberately stated that you have no interest in tisci's work..
please explain your genius.
i will never understand. 
i wonder what influence could have been so riveting to compel you to put renaissance religious art on a t shirt
*cough* black scale
but no since you have had such an unmistakably different learning experience - 
we will never know until you preach

I Really Appreciate how honest&descriptive you were, this will only help me and my Clothing expand. As a new young designer in the word of fashion i try to apear to not be Oblivious. After a while of doing these designs i finally put out my work to the public. i did not spam this, it was not intended to. A friend of mine was only trying to help. On the topic of The sweat pants they where just an idea i painted in my mind. And dont tell me you have never done something like that ? cmon. im not even positive if i will make this piece, for one it could be expensive. But that does not mean i will give up and drop the idea its self. Progression is something i hope to reach throughout this experience. I do not claim to be a * genius* nor am i trying to put Tisci in the bad. I admire his work. Aso I simply asked that person who commented where he thought i lacked originality. That way i could improve and attempt to be more *original*. Im still working on a website that will hopefully answer most peoples question regarding my designs.

P.S  im 16, sorry if i sound immature or dumb. Im trying my best to sound a bit articulate. Thank you tho man. I was looking for some one like you to show me what im missing or failed to accomplish.

www.standardraiments.comYeah we thought that as well, but we use 100% combed ringspun cotton shirts from a local company to allow our prints to go on clean and last a long time.  That rung up our costs.  We compared the quality of shirts to Supreme, Huf, Stussy, etc, and found the quality of our shirts to be nicer in our opinion.  Not knocking on their stuff because I still buy their products.  What kind of pricing points did you have in mind?
Price based on your target market, competitors price and your costs. The rule of thumb is 4 X Cost = Retail Price. We don't follow this ourselves because we don't use overseas clothing or print huge numbers. But getting as close to that number is a start.

If I were you guys, I'd go very minimalistic on the "local company" tees and screen on a "cheaper" mass produced tee. Or work with the "local company" on bringing the price down by promising/ contracting to order a target number of tees over a set period of time. Anyway, without knowing your numbers, it's hard to help more but I hope you guys have room in your pricing to offer a decent markup to retailers. Good luck.
Thanks for the feedback! Yeah we lowered the price on our tees to $32 so the mark-up isn't too high but maybe on our next run, we're gonna have to find another source.  Help a brother out! We're trying to run a fundraiser for the Hurricane Sandy victims and we're selling our New Era snapbacks to donate all the sale proceeds to the American Red Cross!

Your shit's fucking lame, but since you're stocked in so many stores, you must be doing something right.

honestly, do the research first. Then come ask. Hate to sound like a dick but honestly some of these "new brands" need to do their research. I have been working on my brand for the last almost 5 years and I am glad I did the research because it leaves you with alot more options. Its really not hard AT ALL to find manufacturers. Another thing is you new brands need to uderstand is that there is not 1 company that makes everything (shirts,jackets,hats,etc) for one brand. For the most part, you will be working with multiple manufacturers. 

Like I said, do your research first. You got to be more willing to do research for your brand than just go on a forum and expect answers. That right there shows disrespect and no dedication towards your brand. Also, why is it so easy for so many people to just start a brand? having a clothing brand is more than just a couple tees and hats. Alot of you make 2 or 3 seasons and then nobody ever hears of you again lmao... why? because you have 3 good ideas and then after that its downhill. This isnt for everyone so I think alot of you need to realize that having a brand is a long term move. You have got to work hard and sacrifice alot of time to have a succesful brand. No sacrifice, no victory.

Like I said, not trying to sound elitist but its so easy for some of you to "make a brand"... but good luck to all of you.

What's goin on ya'll long time no speak. Been caught up with life outside the brand lately, but nonetheless the brand has been moving good with all of our latest items selling out. Want to get opinions on this Strapback similar to the ones my brand released recently. 

This hat will feature Strapback Closure with Gold Buckle; Suede Brim again, 3rd Embroidery & Normal Embroidery; And my Brands Slogan "Loyalty initially royalty infinitely" stitched on the inner seems.

I just used a word that I felt best described the whole feeling I was going for with the brand, straight up, no supply co or anything at the end of it.

Well with All honesty, I don't think that Crispy is similar to the word swag. It's a word I've used for the longest, and a word a lot of skateboarders use. Its always gonna be around, because it is also an actual word, So in some way people will keep remembering it. Mabye when they go to buy a Crispy chicken sandwich or something.  But in all honesty, I agree, it needs work, not with the name, but quality, its legit, but it could be better right?
