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.
thanks for the comment, helpful.

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.

Not true. There are brands out there that actually do make differences. There's a difference between an about section that was poorly written by someone that doesn't really know what they are doing, and a company that actually has good motives and believes in what they stand for. For an example, the brand Sevenly - http://new.sevenly.org/ - they donate money from each sale to charities. In this sense, the brand Sevenly would be considered a movement more than just a t-shirt company.

Take Dead Era's about section for instance. http://deadera.com/our-story/
It communicates their mission, motives, and ideas all in a humorous and creative story, and even admit they are "not going to change the world, but to restore the culture that technology has been steadily usurping. The medium of this
restoration: ass-kicking apparel sure to reanimate
even the deadest souls. And, an infectious blog
beckoned to bring clarity to all of the pixilation." You can see this section adds a lot of character to their brand and website.

If you make up some bullshit with some buzzwords, yeah it looks stupid, but the about section is the best way to communicate what your brand is about, which is crucial to every brand identity.

Totally agree with this. I actually made the decision to not have an 'about' page, on our website. Why? 

That means I'm going to tell you what we do -- ....because you couldn't figure it out alone? That's a red flag to me.

Bennygold.com's about page is a good example of something different. It's like BG's Table of Contents, so you know what you're gettin' from the rest of the book. 

http://www.bennygold.com/about.html -- Funny, the URL is 'about' but the button is 'story'. That says it all, no?
