Sorry to weigh in on this if it seems irrelevant but I've been reading the thread because I'm doing a dissertation/thesis on streetwear brands, the consumption and marketing of it etc. I'm quite new to it all and would love to discuss topics like what introduced you to these sort of brands e.g. Stussy, Obey, or even newer brands and what attracts you to specific ones. 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!
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.

and need your feedback about this LOGO
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

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?
I would say just the pocket!

Gee thanks 
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

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
I did them myself. What artist do these remind you of?

Why does ever brand want to associate themselves with Caviar, its nothing special but fish eggs.
Because Caviar is one of many symbols of status ?

@vincentcartel Im not feeling the Cocaine one, but thats only cause I personally wouldnt want to associate myself with drugs, but im sure there are a lot of people that would find that design edgy and would lead them to possibly buy, so do you !

its never a good idea to base a clothing brand off a rap line or a cool quote. Like "swag" "yolo" "cocaine and caviar"... those are temporary slurs that people eventually get tired of... your brand will eventually die off like those popular slurs will... good luck tho'

ps. have you even ever done cocaine?

Caviar is completely ripping off the sister company of SSUR, and no hate but that fit he's rocking is completely douchey.. honestly get a new model with some style.

Also, anyone in Miami trying to make a start up with a determined and educated dude, message me.

He's the one that got me to try out vector work. Great artist, but sometimes I feel like I'm copying his style too much. I'm trying to change it up a little now, some new techniques to create my personal style, I'm working on a new piece now, I'll post it once it's done. Would love to hear what you think about it.

Hey everyone.  I started a line called DBA (Death By Association).  I wanted to find out where and how I can get some information about CUT & SEW projects.  Nothing really big because we are about 6 months into it.  Just wanted to see if anyone had any kind of direction for me.  Thanks guys.

Yea he is my favorite vector artist for sure, but I don't think his subject matter (animals and heraldry) would translate to clothing very well anymore. I think if you can emulate his style and put your own spin on it, you'll do great. It was very much my style last year, here's a wrap I did early 2012 with giant bull on the front in Hydro fashion:
