Get a few photos..generic fonts...some generic quote or saying...print some tees.

i dont know if its Karmaloop-ish, but you will find that "lots of brands tend to do the same trends" in any store.

What does it really take to make a great clothing brand these days?

Since we all know that nothing is 'truly' original anymore (every creation is derived from some previous inspiration) - then we can say right off the bat that it is not 'true' originality that makes a brand great. That being said, the question still remains.

In my opinion, a great brand is a combination of various faucets. To me, these faucets include (but are not limited to) branding, design, marketing, business and identity. In a sense, all of these faucets interlock with each other and create a massive intertwined system. In today's crazy world, it's not enough to just be 'good' in one or two faucets, you need to be exceptionally superb at every faucet. Unfortunately, achieved excellence in all of these faucets takes thousands of man hours and a high degree of talent - something not everyone has.

The issue with today's brands is that most people are jumping into the game with very little focus on certain aspects. In fact, a large majority of shitty brands on here seem to completely lack in certain areas. I see too many young arrogant teens throwing blackscale inspired images on shirts without any business, design or branding knowledge. These are the types of people that saturate this already saturated market. But you know what? Let them do it. More time to shine for the rest of us that are passionate about what we do.

Now I turn the question onto anyone who wants to share. What do you think makes a great brand?
Growth consistency. By this I mean through each line, through every design and innovation, the brand remains consistent. I think that even though a brand like Supreme does tons of different, and exuberant designs, each piece still remains uniquely Supreme.

A few brands I really follow are Norse Projects, White Mountaineering and BWGH. I am always drawn to their new collections and how their simplistic style with thoughtfully placed details always remain constant. They aren't worried about always doing something totally different from last collection because that would dilute their brand. 

This is definitely now one of the things I think about going forward with my own brand's design principles. When I first started out, I just wanted to make cool designs I liked; and that is still partly true. However now, if the particular design doesn't fit the brand I have committed to, I keep it in the vault for something else. Just 2 cents worth.

^Nah.

Something I've noticed a lot while going through karma loop, a lot of brands tend to do the same trends, I find myself looking for brands outside of Karma Loop because everything is looking the same on there. 
I appreciate the criticism but are you just referring to the tye dye shirt or all of them? I just don't think the shirts are the same trends Ive just always liked tye dye shirts haha
Sorry about that, when I commented I only saw one shirt up, but I actually liked that quote, wasn't it from The Sandlot? Hadn't seen that on anything yet, shoot I'd wear it. 

"I keep myself so lifted I'm accustom to new heights."

Have a question for you guys. I am certain that someone here has made a music promo video for their clothing line before. How do we go about registering for the music license to use the music for a promotional video? Any thoughts?

Wondering if anyone knows of a good sock manufacturer? Preferably domestic.  Message me or whatever if you could help me out or have experience with getting socks done. I've had troubles finding a good one that's affordable. Would be much appreciated.

its not going to matter if we agree with you.
this shirt idea is a clear echo off the pcl. where are you going to sell your shirt. how many shirts are you gonna make. how much are you going to charge without feeling like a douchebag. who's gonna buy your shirt. are you gonna make size smalls for the pinoys. are you gonna make xl for fat people.
can you code. can you build a good website. are you gonna use bigcartel like tisa and clsc. or are you gonna use 3dcartstore like diamond supply. do you know how little customization 3dcartstore offers. so you're gonna use shopify right. are you down with paying the rape to keep your shop up as you get no orders. if not are you gonna try getting etsy to sell your stuff for you. no right, cuz etsy is for girls and they buy neck accessories and home decorations on that site and you're trying to sell a t shirt. do you have friends. do you have friends who can help you spread the word. do you have money. are you gonna put tags on it. are you going to half ass it. are you gonna put it on sale after a week when you finally realized only 3 people clicked add to cart on your website and that was you, your friend, and your little brother who really just wants you to pay him back for buying you bioshock infinite. are you going to charge 10 dollars shipping like supreme expecting everybody to hand you ten more dollars for your shirt with flowers on it. if you do sell them what are you going to do with the money. how much money do you expect to make from selling shirts with flowers on them. what are you going to do with your life after you attempt to sell shirts with flowers on them.
