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.
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

What blank did you print those hoodies on? They look nice and beefy
I use a Canadian brand called Kings. Out of all blanks, these ones are the best fit. Slightly more solid material than your average.

I'd remove the birds if I were you. It looks like they're humming birds and it's a "funeral" tee the two don't correlate.

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

Not a big raw denim person(the whole 'making your own entirely unique pair' thing is cool, but the level of work you have to put in to not fuck up a pair is enormous in my opinion), but I'm excited to see what you have to offer.

Thanks man.
Yes, that's another thing we are definitely keeping in mind. The price point.
Many technical brands have ridiculously high prices - like Arc'teryx Veilance, jackets for like $1200

It's tough because the technology is expensive and often has to be outsourced. Shipping costs add up, minimums add up, etc.

We're gonna try our best to keep the price as fair as possible. Thanks for your feedback.
I've seen your brand before and you're fairly active on this thread! Good work yourself!

Thanks. Yeah, we've realized that not everyone is into raw denim.

With a water-resistant fabric, you wouldn't really have to put in much work to not fuck them up! So you'd still get the fading properties while not having to worry about spilling food or coffee onto them resulting in a pre-optimal wash.

This is my clothing company called "the common issue" aka "eussi". I created this concept a while back and decided to make it into a clothing company with idea of showing all aspects of life. Basically, how I view and live life. I kind of want this "fuckit" attitude behind my brand. Just really expressing yourself and doing what you want to do. And yeah...
