Hey everyone, just started using this forum. This is our brand called Standard Raiments, We're a Cali Lifestyle brand that emphasizes quality and I know you hear a lot of brands say they do, but we're trying to really get that out.  We're a bit older so our focus was on staple wardrobe items that were great in quality and meant to last you a long time in whatever stage of life you're in (highschool, college, career, kids, etc.)  Check us out www.standardraiments.com
Disappointing..... Pricing is way too high. 
Yeah 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.

Never got around to finishing these,so I figured why not get an opinion. Both Black Logos are choppy due to laziness but i never got around to fixing them as I thought they just wouldn't work as a brand.

Looks way better, but if I were you, I'd just drop the name altogether.

Just because it has a name similar too pink dolphin is it doesnt mean that we are trying to be exactly like them. We going towards a whole different direction. appreciate it though.

I'm not even thinking of Pink Dolphin, I'm just saying I'm not feeling the name. It doesn't make me think of anything but one of those hang up air fresheners.

Thinking of starting a new brand
Thoughts / suggestions on these?

Why is their a raccoon, they aren't neat. Is that some crazy juxtaposition that has deep meaning.
Why are there polka dots, they aren't neat. Is that some crazy juxtaposition that has deep meaning.

Defiantly a much better logo, can't wait too see it colored in. Many people are saying that they don't like the name. As long as your audience like the name it is fine. As long as you have good price point $20-$25 per tee and good designs people will buy your stuff.
flamingo black taking over the streetwear industry. we have another uncommonly colored animal here taking the dark essence of blvck scvle and the bubblegum freshness of pink dolphin to create a legendary fusion pokemon = black flamingomon.

Thanks for the feedback and great play on words but I don't plan on ever reworking that logo again.

Do you guys like my stuff? I mean i dont care because I get money from it, but any Suggestions or anything? Thanks guys. 

I'd say it seems like you have improved somewhat from some of your first post earlier this year but there's still alot of work to be done. First off, your pictures are butt. Second, are those patches or printed designs on your hats and beanies I can barley tell. Your brand looks cheap and disorganized, sorry to say. And as far as saying "I don't care I get money from it" really makes it sound like you aren't even proud of your brand and just want a quick buck or two. Best of luck though. 
your line looks identical to a UK clothing line called....HYPE...

Could you please Support me with a Link based of others people designs or clothing that i Copied or Took ideas from. Please. Id like to see where you saw other designers with these concepts. Thank You. And if you tell me "Givenchy" then no, both mine and Riccardo Tisci ideas are very different. Thank You for sharing your opinion tho.
