Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

^^ I had to laugh a youngkings' comment.


Atomic -- if you know you are just copying someone else style, why would you think people would want to buy it? All everyone is gonna say is, "look another copy of obey, which btw copied off of supreme"...


Besides the fact that OBEY is a fucking piece of shit dirtbag, who has plagiarized from a bunch of people without giving them at least their mention.
And, in all fairness, Supreme jacked it from Barbara Krueger. The box logo's been stolen since the start.

^^^ I just meant for brands people would recognoze off the jump.
I'm pretty sure box logos have been around since the invention of typography lol.

What do you guys do when you have a design ready to print, and then later you see a bigger known brand post a preview of the same concept?
This shit happens way too fucking much for me. Prime example, I was looking at old helmet graffiti from the 70's(a family friend that served was showing me his, pretty cool shit) and went "You know what would be cool? An all over pattern shirt of this shit". I put in hours remaking the camouflage pattern they had back then, and was writing up some graffiti for it, trying to figure out what all I wanted(including shit like the BOMB 'EM peace sign and tour calendars or just drug references). I was so fucking hyped. I loved that shit. I felt like I finally had a really cool idea.

Looking up some more images of helmet graffiti for inspiration, I found this shit:

Erik Brunetti had the same idea as me, 3 years earlier. The thing is, I don't even really like Fuct. There was no way I saw this shit a while back and was just remembering it as my own idea.

Streetwear is the largest hivemind I've ever seen. We're all looking at similar places for inspiration, we're all coming to similar conclusions. Shit, I've had ideas that would be in my notebook for months, just to see a big brand(Supreme, if you were wondering) put out a product that was so close to mine, I couldn't put out mine without be accused of biting. The shit's crazy.

Edited for spelling and shit, because I'm a basic bitch.

What blank did you print those hoodies on? They look nice and beefy
Mar 15, 2013 @ 04:05
@minsct good job, I didn't notice the little details right away like the meat cleaver and the knife prints at the back. The pieces look well-constructed too.

as soon as you have an idea put that shit into play because 20 other people are thinking it and someone is about to do it.
I've had a bunch of ideas, later done by other brands. I kicked myself in the ass and was mad i never released the product. Hall of Fame LTD. also had the same idea that i had, but i dropped mine first so they switched up the design once they put up a preview and i called them out on it via: instagram.


The thing is, we are all in the same genre of fashion and we are all looking at the same things for inspiration. It's hard to show you're different in streetwear when we look for the same things to inspire us. It's not what you do sometimes or who did it first, but rather, who did it the best and who did it last. IMO

/\ Regardless if someone took your idea why stop? People are constantly biting other styles, get back to the drawing board and tweak your shit if someone beat you to it. It at least well let you see how the community reacts to it first. Then find the flaws and make it better. Thats basically how the world works. One idea fuels another. 
The initial reaction to seeing your stuff out there is disappointing but don't give up!

do it anyway.

I had the same shit happen to me, although they werent a big brand, althought they were local to me. To be frank I think they copied my shit. Some people have more money then talent so.


I made this and posted a sample, had gone up for full print yet

I use a Canadian brand called Kings. Out of all blanks, these ones are the best fit. Slightly more solid material than your average.

My business partner and I have been working on our idea for many months now. We've
been working in the raw denim industry for about 2 years now as a denim
jeans retailer (Mostly Japanese and American brands) so we've had the
opportunity to work with some of the highest quality denim in the
market.

However, with every pair that we sell, there are things we personally think we can improve.
Our
idea is to create a new technical garment brand. We get much
inspiration from other technical garment brands like ISAORA, Stone Island, Acronym, Outlier, Arc'teryx Veilance, Nigel Cabourn and some high fashion designers like Boris Bidjan Saberi, Carol Christian Poell,
Damir Doma, etc.

Why technical garments?
1) We're from Vancouver - land of rain
2) We believe that the clothing you buy should make your standard of living better in SOME way. The garments you buy should contribute somehow, and having this "third dimension" would create so much more value to the piece in addition to it looking good.

With
our expertise lying in denim jeans, we've been researching technologies
to make the denim fabric water-resistant while still being able to
fade. We're aware of the Levi's Commuter but to be honest, it's not that
great. We got samples from the factory in South America that makes the
fabric for them and we didn't like them.

We're going to start with 3 fits: straight, tapered and curved-seam.
Hopefully if our company can grow, we can expand to other things like shirting, outerwear, luggage and accessories.

We've spoken with many, many, many denim mills and we think we've found the fabric we like:


We have a name and our website domain had just been purchased but I don't want to release it until it's ready :p
Not much to show yet, but I would love to hear some of the HB community's feedback.

I like the idea. I am from Vancouver aswell and understand the coastal climate.

We are wanting to increase the technicality of our garments to make them more seasonally functional. I think the hardest thing to do would be to maximize simple technicality while still maintaining a fair price point.

Good luck with your brand
