You'll have a select group be interested in this.
I would use as a sticker not sure about me wearing it as a shirt or even how you would tie it in with your brand.
You had the sketch of the bomber too right?
Once again though I see you are saving money by usint auto trace but if you want this to come out clean send the vector file off to a graphic designer so he can clean up the lines and make them smoother. On the keyblade it's really noticable. I'm new with Illustrator myself so it's a common problem I have as well.
Yeah the Bombers tee was mine and I'm still working on it, I used the live trace and the whole image of Mickey and the keyblade came out well, but the chain holding the Mickey logo didn't come out so well. I'll post pics of it later.

Countach -- the Kite Life reference is to another member with some shit designs.
Niksone -- I like the camp hat a lot. Where to cop? The strapback looks meh but I always lean towards camps.
Nice Work!
Alright i just looked up this Kite Life guy, and holy shit his stuff is way worse, but what do i need to do , change my designs? , name ? , i need guidance im kinda new to starting my own "brand" , any suggestions would be great, like what path do i take?
Is kinda difficult to tell you how to go about starting a business, at the end you learn from your mistakes. I have come up with 6 different names/logos/designs(sets) and just this afternoon I went ahead and canceled the order I put in for what I thought was my final "brand". I just wasn't feeling it. My printer hated it but I still paid the dude for his work even though he didn't print one shirt lol. 

All I can tell you is to come up with ideasm work on 'em and then let them sit for a few weeks. Then come back and take another -- honest -- look at them and then decide if they work. Just like this whole "countach" shit, now you know that wasn't a good idea.

Google how to start a clothing brand and see what you find.

I'll be honest, you wont find a lot of positive/constructive criticism here. Most here are on the same boat as you or already hustlin their stuff and trying to build, therefore they are not gonna be as cool with helping you out...

I still dont get the whole Kite Life reference

Whatever happened to kite life anyways? yea bro, your brand just feels like a bunch of random stock images and shitty fonts. It feels like you came out with your whole collection in a few hours using microsoft paint. Go to karmaloop browse  their tshirts, get some ideas or try to improve some, no design is original nowadays.

Sounds homo but I get what you saying lol. Reason why I am "real" as you said it, is cause I'm a bit older and don't really need to start a "brand" to live a comfortable life. I only do it as a way to channel my ideas. I have done painting, wrote a book and a couple of short movies, done photography and currently am trying to start this more as a hobby than anything else. Seriously, it's the most difficult shit I've done in quite some time lol.

First mistake is that you said you have a brand. Its more of a quick thought with a simple hour or 2 of google searches. You need to go back to stage 1 and rethink everything. You are giving up to easy and asking for information and don't even seem committed to this at all. It seems that you just want a "brand". Go and look at what it takes and research some days and weeks probably on google just looking at things and how it works. Theres no straight guide that tells you how to make a brand. If there was, wouldn't every one create a brand?

@offthemap-sf any previews of the print on the Mariner? I fux with vintage map prints so bad, but it's more of a high-risk high-reward thing imo. Moupia did a pretty good one some time ago and I Love Ugly did, too -- would like to see your take on it.

what do you guys think about this?

Clean and simple. Look for ways to improve on it. Play with different colorways or a fountain print. Wouldn't give up just yet. there's a market for it.

@countachclothing listen to @axcie. You're in a can't win situation. Either Countach Clothing fails/flounders or you become successful and have to shut things down or pay out the ass in a settlement or penalties.

Here's the B&W version of the Mickey design of course it doesn't have all the yellow writing over it, based off one of the levels in KHII (Timeless River) I've got a colored version too.

Okay I see a lot of thumbs down. I would like like to hear some critique just not thumbs down. I have gotten a lot of great feedback until I came here.
