Sometimes the market needs something childish and fun and creative. It hasn't been done, so why not...
I thought it flowed with the logo and was a nice winter touch to the jacket.
I use tumblr as well but  it's not the really "blog" viewing material.
Still working on my sudomains though.
I wish you the best of luck taking the more whimsical approach, I tried and got mad hate. Maybe people just don't want happy.

Last post for the next 3 days but

Keep doing it.

Small example. Up and coming Brand Ilthy. Look them up on here. Mad people
hated on them in the beginning called them a rip of Supreme when they were
nothing alike. Just outlandish hate for no reason. From what I can see the
owner is very successful and making big moves.

If you’re looking for your total audience to come from the Hypebeast forum,
shut down shop.

The market is way to big just to have dark themed stuff, rips and pyramids

Personally, your lookbook just screamed corny. Do something different next time instead of a bunch of people wearing the same thing standing next to each other smiling like a family portrait behind the big white background. Something as simple as eating at your favorite restaurant or just playing xbox with your friends would look a million times iller than what you did. Just doing everyday shit that hopefully your supporters can relate to. Shit shoot it at a carnival having fun, since that's what you said you were trying to do.

mattnicholasrv -- checked out your tumblr page and I would personally not buy the hoodies but if you are selling locally and getting some recognition, good for you. Is the new stuff you are working on more visually appealing?

2 questions if anyone could help me..

1st) What do you guys use to make designs? Illustrator or Photoshop? Do you guys use a pen or just mouse?
2nd) How do you guys print your shirts; where/how much?

This is like asking "What kind of toothpaste do you use? and how much is it" way too many places/prices for things. There isn't a one stop shop streetwear megamall that handles everything. Illustrator and Photoshop are preference's same with pen and paper over a mouse, or even tablet.

Ok...thought my question would have have been answered with applied common sense. 

Let me rephrase my question; Where do you guys prefer to print your clothing and how much does it cost at the preferred places?

I don't want to be an ass and all - but you need to find out yourself. 
Check with your local firms and ask for a price. Thats what we all did - thats what I am doing right now. 

Ask for proofs, check the quality. Is it clean ? Or did they rush it and you're finding many flaws on your proof.


I've been looking around the forums and It's the same with does snapback posts. People dont want to be a douche and not tell where to get them, it just takes a lot of time finding that source you like - and since you're in competition here - you dont want to share it.

I wanna point out the fact right now that @kidkorea 's backpacks have been getting mad love on this thread lately. It looks to be a quality, unique, and well presented product. Everyone should take notes (this is coming from strictly a consumer I don't have a company/brand right now but come to this thread because I enjoy seeing this shit) because they are doing it right. They aren't rushing to push product out like half of the brands on this thread. They've been posting updates but you can tell that they have put in more time and effort than 95% of the people on this thread and will drop it when they feel there product is complete and up to the quality they wish. There isn't much on here that I would purchase but those bags... they got me itchin man.

They've got a pretty good head start on a lot of brands here but I think you can take a lot from them. A lot of people say a back story and about section doesn't matter that much to them and that is cool because I don't care for a lot of them either. BUT these guys got it on point, their about section ENHANCES their product and makes it more attractive not make it feel like its a bunch of fluff to make it seem better than it is. Don't do an about or something for your brand just to make up a bunch of BS as to why you started the brand. Is it good to have? Sure. But your about should be about bringing out your product and differentiating it from other brands not trying to make your brand that has been around for a year seem like it has more value than it does.  

The reason these guys get love without even dropping their product is because its well put together. In short, take your time, insure quality, differentiate your product, and present it properly.

Much love for feedback!
The designs are pretty good (I personally like the blue and gray one the most), I to, use a cartoon-ish style. What bothers me is that the photos hinder and block the attention the print needs, so my personal advice is to take photos in which the design is fully visible and remains the main subject, so folks have a clear visual on your art. This doesn't mean that you should not be creative with your shots (fitting location, expression etc), but a centered photo with the art clearly visible does the trick!

Keep going! smile

For everyone here, what would you guys consider to be a solid first-timer "collection"? I'm still in the designing/source stage but wanted to know what you guys thought. I'm hoping to be ready for a spring/summer soft/local drop and I'm finalizing 4 tees, 2 tanks and 1(maybe 2) custom 5 panels plus accessories. If those move okay, then my plan is to push for a larger fall/winter project.

In my personal opinion that is too much. I would start with the tees and tanks and nothing else. I think it would be better for you to have too little product in the first round so that people are excited to see what you bring out in following collections, that way you create some demand; don't bring all your guns blazing first round. I also think natural progression is important. Most everyone starts out with tees and I think thats great because you have nowhere to go except up whereas if you came out with a full headwear, accessories and cut and sew line, you have little room to go except for numbers and not too much to debut further down the line.

This. I'd scale it back, but throw in some buttons and/or stickers(if you have to choose, sticker before button). That way, people who are fucking with you, but don't want to drop that much money on a shirt can buy a little something cheap.

I can pull back and just do 3 tees, 1 tank and the 5 panel hat. The extras, like stickers and buttons I was planning on having, so I dont even count those. As far as accesories I was thinking some sunglasses and maybe a few bracelets.

Maybe I'll follow your advice and start small. Keep some money on my side for advertising smile

Everyone is pretty much spot on with the advice.
Include logo T's to give away or sell however you want to do it but make sure they are in there.

s-xl maybe 2xl but not to many.
