Do you find it's mostly through music, skating or just the people you've been around? What's the culture like surrounding it? How far do you go to find limited edition or vintage gear that no one else has? Or is it simply about the clothes.

Also, please don't reply to this is you're going to be a dick about it, trying to be productive here! Thanks!
This book http://www.amazon.co.uk/Streetwear-Insiders-Guide-Steven-Vogel/dp/0811860361/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?s=book...  should help w/ your Thesis it basically has background info on every streetwear brand that ever mattered. As far as what attracts me to a brand personally it's really all about how the stuff looks the designs/colors they use etc. I won't rock a brand who I feel uses stupid or gimmicky designs.  
Thanks, I've been recommended that book quite a lot!

Hi all,

Haven't gotten to printing shirts yet, but just looking for honest feedback to see if my designs seem fit and worth my money to get printed.




Pretty nice Art. I say go for it! What did you use to create these?

Thanks to everyone who commented for the positive feedback so far!
Maybe it's a good call to start planning a limited run of some prints .

To answer BadNews: These are all done in Adobe Illustrator, so they are scalable vector pieces.

Did you do them or do you have an artist? Reminds me of one of my favorite vector illustrators

Thanks for the positive comment! How would you print them on pocket tee's? Just the pocket or as a regular print on the chest?

qrct1: You're a clown bro, what are you even doing in this thread. People come in here for some constructive criticism on their brand not to hear your bullshit that makes no sense. I could care less if you like my brand, obviously it's not for everyone but you don't need to bash everyone's shit for no reason. 

everyone else: Appreciate the feedback. I understand my target audience are people who fuck with Lil B and his based/positive mentality and that was my intention going into this. Like I said it's not for everyone and in reality no other brand is, people like different shit, plain and simple. 
are you one of those people that takes lil b serious?

music introduced me to new friends, these friends introduced me to the whole culture, before that i was a little kid wearing some Hot Wheels shirts and some shit from JC Penney's.

i liked the designs.

as for limited edition/vintage shit: rarely ever do i actively search this shit out, although i have a little mental list of long sold out clothes i'd cop the second the opportunity presented itself.

I think it needs a little more work, it's a little too basic imho (looks like times with a rotated S). The S seems to be a little unbalanced, it floats more to the right.

Can anyone link me to some good printers?  New to all this I'm tryna get a feel.  

I know some local places but I'm wondering if there are some real nice worth while ones that I should know about.  Talkin T's, sweatshirts, beanies, snapbacks, even stickers.  Appreciate any responses

Local is probably best for a screen printer. Check yelp instead of google.com (but searching on the internet is best). When you find a screen printer they can point you in the direction of everything else you're looking for. No right answer, depends on your bankroll and brand vision. For stickers, I recommend http://diecutstickers.com
