It's terrible, but people will buy it. Parodying higher end brands in streetwear is the in thing to do right now, especially since people like rihanna have been seen wearing them (palace - versafe). Played des fuckout will (probably) sell a bunch of shirts to people on instagram/tumblr, but that will be it. It will fade into obscurity like the rest of these parodies until they get brought back as vintage in years to come (ie bootleg gucci from way back)
True. I haven't seen anybody present this on the thread yet so I wanted to share about it. Too basic IMO.. a brand based off a parody leaves no room for creativity and like you said, will probably only sell for awhile to people on IG/tumblr who think that the idea is "fresh" or "something different."

On another note, I hope nobody took me seriously when I was being sarcastic about dropping the "Played Des Fuck Out" apparel. Lol

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some feedback. I'm in the very early stages of designing and want to know if I'm on a good track. In case you're wondering, I have received permission from the copyright holders to use the images. Thanks


You're off to a horrible start. It honestly sucks.

But I will give you some feedback. First of all the pictures are really bad, at least get a high quality picture. Second, the font are something I can easily recreate in MS Word which show so creativity. Third, you show no branding; you represent no brand and the only common theme or idea between the 'designs' is shitty pictures with corny tag lines under them that have little relevance.
Thanks for the feedback. You're right. I looked at some of the other stuff on this thread and I'm paling by comparison. Should I start over with original ideas or get better pictures? Thanks

Photos from our Recent Broken Bank Winter/Spring 2013 Collection Look Book
I think some of the photos look cheesy to be honest. The one with the bunny ears is a poor attempt at being funny. Also I think the females used for models could have been better (not bashing just trying to be honest). The quality of the pics aren't bad but I don't care much for the actual presentation of them.

The photos used were not purely for
"just seeing the brand"

I used candid pictures of people having fun in the clothes, posing and just
being natural. I don't like looking at photos of people being serious all the
time. That gets boring. So I used the photos I enjoyed and thought represented
the personality of the people wearing them.

No poses were instructed. Everything was created in the moment

As far as models. I'm not one of those people who will really solely on using
only sexy people.

If I don't like a brand it doesn't matter how cute the girl is. Natural look is
better in my honest opinion


but I appreciate the feedback

having band-aids for the elbow patches on the letterman is kinda cool, but really childish at the same time. 

also, what's up with all the unprofessional subdomains? You've got an actual domain, don't use a .wordpress.com blog. Use subdomains or some shit, so it's blog.brokenbankclothing.com. And, about Wordpress, I'd use Tumblr instead, for the sheer exposure it offers. But, that's me, not you, so whatever.

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 guess maybe I didn't word what I was saying well enough. I understand what you were going for but I think you just missed the mark and didn't quite capture the essence what you were trying to with the candid shots (IMO). I feel where you're coming from though and at least you can take constructive criticism with a grain of salt unlike half the people on here the get butt sore instantly. keep grindin G.

for sure. My last photo shoot was a complete flop, so with this one I went a totoally different way.
I  looked through other "prof. brands" lookbook before I set mine up and they have people with the hair uncut, peeps who look dirty and I just went to total opposite with mine.

Few updates..



Inside leather patches



These are our backpack handles before they are sewn on. 100% natural double-layered leather so its extremely sturdy! There are no logo prints anywhere on the bags except the handle where IISE is hand stamped.



Behind the scenes production shot! All of our bags are handmade in a small workshop in Seoul by people who have been in the industry for over 30 years.



Detailed shot of our straps before they are connected to our M2 & Daypack models. We love the ash black color and how textured and random the patterns are for each and every strap.



Another behind the scenes shot from our lookbook shoot. Traditional Korean architecture is so inspirational. The details you can find on the roofs, doors, and walls are all amazing.



Army of IISE daypacks ready to take over. 

Production is now officially finished, few more days to our release!

Support us by liking our Facebook Page!
Best of luck with your brand, you've certainly set yourself up for success with this.

I'd suggest a video review kind of thing for each bag, just you opening it up and explaining all the pockets and shit. I'm not big on the backpack game, but this'd make me more likely to buy.
Appreciate it man, that actually means a lot. I'm also going to take your suggestion into consideration, already have some ideas now for a short video. Thanks for the input man! We also shot an organic dyeing video that is going to be released soon.

Launching the online store and collection tomorrow, big ups to HB for the support.

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.

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.

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.
