Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

no pictures, lame background i'm going to assume you can't even legally use, no lookbook.

C'mon man, if you don't even have at the very least a mockup of the product, don't start a store and link it around.
It's amazing how someone can expect people to come out of pocket for clothes that don't even exist. Also that pre order shit is lowkey BS to me especially as far as up and coming brands are concerned it comes off like they're trying to get you to fund the product actually being created when you only see mock ups and templates and no actual real life products.

I'm seeing a lot of arguing lately, over what "the process" or  "best final product", should look like.

I've seen it said before, so I'll say it again. Hours. It takes time. It takes inspiration. It takes a lot drawings (awful, in my case haha) -- don't rush it.

To give an idea, I took an image from my brand's thread. It shows why we did the collection AND what inspired us. It's above this post.

I'm still in the baby stages of my brand. And these are just a few of my designs. Many have not seen ink yet.

If you want a shortcut, Alstyle. But you should get out there and touch some cotton if you're serious.

At least put the second period in after U.S. so I can tell if you're being serious or not.

Finally placed my first order yesterday. Found a great company(the do prinitng for major brands) and all went smooth. Now working on the site and making connects with some local artists. We already have a few members of the NBA  Cavaliers' Scream Team down to rep and we hope to line up some new people in the next few weeks. 

In all honesty I have learned a lot through this site and I wanna say thanks to the regulars who are always providing good insight.

@Gvto:

A stylized abbreviation? Happens a lot in my hometown, which should be "D.C." (District of Columbia) but is usually "DC", for style and ease. 

Something similar would be: F V M E. That's happened a lot in clothing, from the similar Latin letter.

@Princeandprez:

Thanks!

Is anyone else sick of reading ridiculous brand mission statements in the 'about' sections of these startup tshirt lines?
I understand that most people believe that a mission statement is necessary for creating a brand identity, and that some insight should be given into what the brand represents and where it comes from, but most of these descriptions are meaningless and over-the-top ramblings about changing the world. For example:

"Art and Design built on eclectic fusion, 

First Twelve is a collaboration with the universe,

striving to re-define what is there, and unveil what isn't"

What the fuck does that even mean? A collaboration with the fucking universe?
Similarly, can brands stop please stop referring to themselves as 'movements'.
Not sure if anyone else cares, this is just a detail that has deterred me from many otherwise well-conceived brands which I would have supported.

Apparently every new brand is going to change the world... So much bullshit man. Is a fucking shirt. That's it. Stop making it seem like a shirt is gonna make people think or change their values, they fucking won't.
