You only have 1 hat and you're charging $55 for it? I get it with all what you did to do it but I mean who's going to buy it? Either you picked the wrong sources and put way too much money into these or you're trying to make way too much off of them. Really doesn't scream "This hat is so dope here's $55 for it". Best of luck man.

Thanks for the feedback big bro!

I will be the first to admit that I put way to much money into this piece then I should of ...but a majority of the cost was buying an official New Era Snapback...could not find a place where I would be able to buy wholesale.

I put it out knowing I wouldnt make that much profit but at the end of the day I just wanted to put out a dope concept...more so then just making money at this point...thank you for the feedback..I appreciate   u
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
Did you do the spelling of Grammar wrong on purpose too....
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.

@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.

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.

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

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.

In this industry you will more then likely find something, that may look the same.
But that doesn't mean you scrape the idea.
Mine doesn't look like that at all though...

Thanks man. Yeah I don't really wear snapbacks anymore, but I like what we were able to do with the patch and the black one is actually a lighter poly/cotton blend, so it has the old school feel to it. The 5 panels are pretty solid too, even though a lot of brands are using those blank caps they do fit well and the structure isn't floppy or shitty feeling. Would like to do some more manufacturing for upcoming releases but I think this is a good start for hats.

Usually when brands put a city's name on their garments is because they either have a shop or have an outlet on that city. So the whole banking/spending money thing seems kinda noobish. Just my worthless 2 cents.

We just launched our website within the last year and would love for you to check it out and give us some feedback.  
Thriftyduds.com is an online Thrift Boutique featuring One-of-kind Vintage Clothing inspired by the 80's & 90's era; where hip-hop was fresh and baggy was encouraged.  We love vintage everything, incomparable style, and rare clothing pieces.  
Spread the word, tell your friends, and leave comments/feedback below. >>> #BEEN #VINTAGE

Check us out !!!  >>>  http://www.thriftyduds.com

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.
I go to goodwill on a weekly occasion and have found several vintage pieces that they would definitely love to sell for a 500% markup so its not that hard to find nice vintage threads for much cheaper and its often more fun. The drug dealing was a bit of a joke but dealing, thrifting and reselling and starting a brand are all now somewhat synonymous with kids who don't want to get a job but want quick money.

@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!
I'm sure they don't claim to be a clothing company but after all they are posting in a 'Starting a new line/brand' thread so that implys something. As for the markup, I am a frequent buyer and lover of streetwear so I have no problem with expensive clothes, but the difference is that with these companies I know of their quality and fit and also buy stuff new whereas with this one is paying premium prices for a garment that is previously used.
Lastly, I would have to disagree, starting any brand, even a bad one takes some creativity because one at least has to design the pieces or graphics. Starting a vintage reselling business only requires having a good eye while browsing through goodwill.

Upon actually looking at their website, they have great presentation and good pieces but I'm still not impressed by this current trend.

I got back to the drawing board on a new name for my line, the name "Duzit" is what i came up with, my nickname in highschool has always been "Duzi" anyway, so i thought about just using that but adding a "t" at the end, i've drawn up ALOT of designs since the last time i posted anything on here, I'm still deciding if i should make a logo for it or not.. just an update on my progress
