Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

It's hard for me to believe this. You can literally pull up hundreds of wholesale distributors online with the use of Google. Just type in wholesale snapback and I guarantee you you'll be able to find a website. 

And the quote on the back? I'm not even going to comment on that. It speaks for itself. Good luck revamping your name and I honestly mean that. 

This is going to be my next snapback ;)
And i did the you're wrong on purpose...hope yall get it...lol

Our company has been in production for over 80 years in Tokyo, Japan and have been producing for brand name companies like Nike, Reebok, Fila, Hugo Boss, and much more. We have recently decided to create our own brand of streetwear called Real Kings. Our product designs incorporate a fusion between American and Japanese cultural art. All of the designs that we have are not simply just for looks, there is a meaning or story hidden behind every design. We pride ourselves in quality products ensuring that every piece that comes out of production is constantly quality controlled. As being a new brand in the US, we would love to hear feedback on our products so we can better improve on future designs.

I like that you have a more diverse set of designs rather than just logos printed on a shirt.

Not even gonna lie, I fuckin hate 'clothing companies' like these. Literally all you do is go to goodwill and find vintage threads then resell it on a webstore with a crazy markup and sell it for more than it even cost brand new. There is literally no creativity or originality involved in this business. I swear this shit is the new drug dealing.

Really.. You try going to goodwill and find some of these articles of clothing. These sites are great for people who enjoy these clothes and not force to buy all the shitty remakes. The new drug dealing? Might be the top 3 dumbest analogies I've ever heard. Yea the mark up might be a bit high but these items are not as easy to find like you claim.

@thriftyduds
 dope stuff...good biz concept. mark up isn't even outrageous.

@chad
i'm sure that they don't claim to be a "clothing company".....simply resell...why the hate?
(if anything, you should hate the markup on your favorite clothing company.....and then hate on THAT resell markup too!)

by the way....starting a resell site is just as "unoriginal and uncreative" as starting your own clothing line....so you got a lot of hating to do in this thread!

Hey guys, don't know if you would have any info on this topic but... If you were a brand wholesaling to international stores ie: outside of North America.... How would you go about fulfilling orders? I know it's easier to do one off shipments but once you get into bulk orders you have to worry about customs, exportation, taxes, shipping, logistics, etc.

Just wondering if anyone had any experience with that. Thanks!
Had the opportunity to do it but it fell through on the buyers side. Depends on how much they want and the amount you're charging for wholesale. Also, if you can negotiate how you want to handle the shipping cost. Some people are down to pay the shipping if you throw in a couple extra shirts or you can charge them the shipping fee. There are tons of ways of going about this process. Just need to talk to them and see how they handle business and base it off what you are able to do. It's better to get paid upfront for the order that way if your shit doesn't move it's not on you. 
thanks @hkeys for your input. I am going about it a bit different of a route. If you go look at places like Asos.com and see Herschel Supply bags, they're like double to price we see in North America. They are obviously writing big orders, but the reason those costs are higher must be in part to shipping, but more so to inflation costs. I guess I am wondering why such an increase in price, and can it be avoided when dealing with international stores / chains?

Dude don't do the whole "I spelt it wrong on purpose" take. Unless you're going to tell everyone you sell it too like "Hey man the grammar's off on purpose" it just sounds silly and half assed. Forgot to mention earlier since you're making products with bad grammar to start with and your brand is your name it looks like you have poor grammar. There are ways to go about doing wrong grammar on purpose but this isn't one of them since you already messed up your first hats. It just looks immature and bad homie. Sorry for the bashing but I would advice you not to make this. See how your first hats do before you go spend a billion more dollars trying to get $55 off this one too.

not my cup of tea, but these are far from horrible. I like them a lot, i just don't wear hats like this. *thumbs up*

@ericdaniel I think hypebeast was right up your alley given the style you're trying to portray. But given the feedback and crits you've gotten so far on your not so propely executed and only product, I do not think you'll get any customers here. You should've put more thought in your product before getting it made and posting it on HB, I'm sorry but I think that's the harsh reality you face.
Apr 03, 2013 @ 18:52
Divided - I like the 5 panels, simple and clean for summer bbq's. I don't wear snapbacks so the other ones are meh for me. Good luck with the brand.

Officially working on some womens garments.

Decided to come up with a "high end" looking logo for this line. It will be a mix of high end and streetwear.



also a side note to the guy paying $12+ for new era hats blanks, you are paying to much.

Do you think the B with the dollar bar going through it feels like authentic high-end and luxury branding?
I don't know if that's what you're going for, but to me that doesn't seem to be what high-end brands do...
And the bar isn't centered in your letter, is that a stylistic feature or a design error?

Yes
What I wanted to do was create a simple logo. Something like how D&B, LV, And CC all have acronym logos.
So took a universal symbal of money and mixed it with the B to create it. Rather then using BBC which would probably get mixed up with other brands.
The Bar is centered. It's just that B letter itself isn't really equal on both sides anyway because the top of the B is shorter then the lower half. I kept looking at it myself but I used a grid to center it.

I can't image LV using a dollar sign in their logo, it's hard to believe it would appeal to their true customers. As for the centering issue, I was talking about the bar sticking out a lot more at the bottom. It looks kinda weird to me.
Apr 03, 2013 @ 19:30
I never said I wanted to to be directly like LV, I just used the same acronym system sort of.
That's hwy i said a mix between high end and streetwear. When you see the pieces it may be more appealing. Ladies clothing can be a hit or miss but from the ones I have spoken with who have seen the samples they really liked them.
I'm not going directly for the LV market but those females who wear this without being a copy cat



Believe me a lot of thought went and research went into this.

But yeah the was on purpose with the dollar bar.

lol AHH YES. I was waiting fomr someone to ask this qustion.
I used Sweden because it directly goes with Banking. I don't want to make a complex answer but basically Swedish bank accounts is where that idea came from (place to keep money without it being accounted for). New York because of the stock exchange, failed banks and so forth. San Diego because that's where I stay and it's a good place to spend money.
That's not set in stone but I want to get that point across. I'm sure some won't get it right away but I couldn't think of any other way to get that across without it being a cut and paste idea

Broken Bank Clothing *** www.BrokenBankClothing.com *** @brokenbankclo

Apr 03, 2013 @ 20:23
I thought most people put those cities under their brand because that is where their shops are located. Not because they represent something. Interesting, I may have to look into that next time I see a series of cities posted somewhere.
