Nothing too special about this one.
I guess you're just being honest and there's nothing wrong with that.. The only thing is that I am assuming that your brand is 'city of savages'.. You claim my idea is "nothing too special" while all of your tshirts are basic with your brand name on it.. You do have hoodies and other items that are unique but as far as shirts go they are very basic. So with that being said, if you think my tee is "nothing too special", what do you think about your shirts? 
would you have rather have him tell you it looks good then lose a ton of money when it doesn't sell? he's just being honest, his shirts/designs are irrelevant to your question.

Hey everyone..
So I got my first design printed, I decided to go with the zombie design, I got my website up and running, emails etc.. I have had quite positive feedback with the first design - although I have decided to start off with more basic designs. Putting such a detailed design on a garment with very little fanbase I am limiting myself to the amount of consumers I will capture.
any feedback is highly appreciated - whether it be bad or good! 
also, I know my product photography is quite terrible.. this is something I am working on - I am purchasing a new camera.. does anyone have any recommendations?

The Design isn't bad, yet not something I would wear. But it shows you put some effort in it. I do think the print on the back looks odd, thinking it would look better as a print on the chest. The logo on the chest seems kinda cheap compared to the back print, looks like you're just using free fonts like Branboll Fet, everyone could do that. Also had a lot of malware detections going through your website, not a good thing and doesn't make me want to buy stuff there. Your logo looks good however. Think this might appeal to your audience.

Imma be real.I remember when I first came on here and everyone told me that my stuff was nice ,but it wasn't their style...I was so upset...but after all the stuff I've seen ripped up and torn to pieces...I'm actually feeling kind of good."Nice clothes,but I wouldn't wear it..." ,it's almost something I want to put on a resume now or post as an achievement.Haha.I thank you all for giving me this moment and if I ever make it anywhere, I will shout out the HypeBeast forums...and SISL.Can't forget SISL... -h_h-

The top t-shirt remind me of when I went to Hawwii and I was just about to leave, but my grandma decided she wanted to go into the giftshop. Anything with a parrot reminds me of cheesy Hawwii giftshop clothes that are overpriced. 
^When we skate and you would hit your groin area on a rail,we called that a taint-bruise...so when I hear taintless,all I think is : person with a missing groin area.Not sure if that's regional talk or nationwide...but yeah...not the one.As for the designs...to each their own.I bet you could actually do something fun with those images...I have a few ideas just based off the color alone. -h_h-

He and I are both being honest when we say that.
Is the design vector are put together or created from scratch? You created a webstore with a shirt that says coming soon but states 24 total created?
Building a company and exposing a brand. With your first shirt you have no brand exposure.
Thats the point of making shirts with your "brand" on it. If people don't know who you are, they won't know where to look. The is a significant key to start ups.
I'm not going to go H.A.M. on you and crush your dream or anything but you need a solid foundation.
In my opinion just looking at your first shirt it does not scream "I'm putting a lot of effort into this"
Trial and error though is the only way to learn, but you asked for opinions

How is it irrelevant? He's being a hypocrite. I'm not even going to get into it. I do understand people opinions and respect them, but not when they say one thing and do the opposite

Sorry if I can off sounding rude. It just annoyed me that he's bashing my creation when his aren't any better..
And yes the design is 100% from scratch. I sketched it many times ten vectorized it in adobe illustrator. I just turned 16 like I'm not a professional but to say its nothing special is an awful insult after all the work I put it. Everyone I asked in person liked it for the most part. And my logo is at the bottom saying my brand name. No one wants to wear a shirt with only the name of a brand no one has heard of. It's too basic and won't sell to anyone but your friends or family...

Everything is noted on the hammer on the

eagle. I was trying to stay true to the seal to much, it also bothered me a

little but I said oh well because I know as a designer you are harder on

yourself then others, sometimes.


As far as the jacket goes I'm working to have them customizable. I will be

having a couple different rear patches for display. I'm still working out

details on it, but once everything is set up it will be nice. Going to keep it

simple with my logo only and the Broken Bank University Mascot I made and some

smaller patches that customers can buy separate and have stitched on themselves

in the location of their liking.



The bill shirt will def. not be limited anymore after all the recent feedback I have been given on it.
Just put that shit on some white and black shirts, keep the red one as a limited edition Christmas run.

This. Honest feedback is what this thread truly needs, right now it seems more and more of people hyping each other up over bad product. If you think the shit sucks, just tell 'um.

What's good y'all? So I've been thinking for quite a long time about my brand name cause I really want to make sure its something that I wanna stick with but wanted some feedback as to what your thoughts are just on the name. Sorry, no logo yet which obviously is a big part but want to settle on a name and then sketch like 4 or 5 logos and then pick from there.

I'm thinking that I will call my brand Case In Point. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the idiom case in point essentially references a “prime or relevant example”. Obviously it’s my username but had thought of the user name before I actually thought of starting a brand but thought it would be a good name. I will start with some t-shirts but will be trying my best to get into cut & sew sooner rather than later which I understand is expensive and risky but where I really want to be at.

Case In Point will be a brand that is relevant example of self-expression. Clothes have developed from a functional necessity to a way of life and I’m hoping Case In Point will represent just that. I’m also going to try and make sure that any outwear I make are of high quality and function well because I find it important from me being from Maine my clothes got to have style and functionality.

Lemme know what you guys think of the name. I know I'm not giving you guys much to base this off of but figured I'd see what I could get for responses.

Product shots aren;t that bad looking. Just lighting issues. Maybe iron them before hand, but it at the least shows customers you put effort nd actually have the products in stock and ready made.

I think the logo is kinda cool, the shape needs to be different. And are you tied down to a camo logo or is that just for your website?

The shirt is nice, I think the head could have been bigger to show the detail. I wouldn't pay $35 for it unless the material was a special blend or it came with another obvious incentive. $15-25 is the range I would pay

Wow. Stop crying. If this is how your gonna behave, working or even trying to get anywhere in this industry is not for you. Of coarse your family and friends are gonna tell you they like it, they don't want to hurt your feelings. Your justifying yourself when no one gives a fuck. If you're really serious about starting a brand, take photoshop/illustrator lessons and get really good at it until you can put out quality work. if not, save up money for a designer. don't treat these comments as personal attacks, it's constructive feedback. use it as help.

Man this thread has gone down the gutter haha. Glad to see some of you guys still posting quality stuff you're working on and i hope everyone has been making some money.

I'm kinda in a pinch with losing a few contacts overseas and i need to get some leather accessories done up. Does anyone know of a place that does leather work? US or overseas doesnt matter as long as they are legit.

Shoot me an email and ill be sure to help you out with whatever you need. I do tons of consultation work for multiple people as well with marketing/branding/social media etc. I'll make it worth your wild if you can help me with this i've just been too busy to find a place and my deadline is quickly approaching. I have multiple factories overseas and in Canada for numerous things. Im not one to give out contacts but if you can help me, I can help you.

In agree with the kid.....you guys need to stop being hypocrites...

there are alot of brands that post on here with simple --"nothing special" designs....

what makes one brands-"nothing special" tee....better than the other?

and you guys have the nerve to ask if he hand drew his "nothing special" design....when the other brand in question clearly didnt hand draw his!

Hey man,
thanks for the response and the feedback!
The only reason why I went with the other design first off was because I was on a major budget, and wanted a one colour print, where as the camo has a few colours and would have cost me a little bit more - I am not tied with the camo print logo, I also have other basic versions - Black, Orange etc. I think my next step will be to print the camo logo, alongside the black and see how the sales go. I will put aside the Zombie Design tees for when I get more consumers.. So I appreciate that feedback.
In regards to the feedback I got for the zombie tee, I have sold a fair amount of tees to my friends, not sure whether or not it was sympathy buy just to give me a confidence boost, but they seem to have confidence in what I have going.

I went with a basic, sleek look with my website.. I feel that when I went onto overcrowded websites (Like Karmaloop) I get lost.. so the basic look is what should appeal to a lot of people and gain positive feedback. So thanks again.

The product shots I am working on, I'm not gonna use the "I only just started" excuse.. I am accepting all this critisism unline most of the 16 year old kids on this website..

PS : I can emphasise it more, but everyone on this website is trying to make it in the game.. this forum is for feedback purposes, not your bitchy schoolyard fights so keep it to yourselves via PM or something. Sick and tired of reading unwanted posts.. to all the people in here who are actually giving feedback like Vega etc - Thumbs up.

Thanks everyone, hope to collaberate with some of you in the near future.
