Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Apr 18, 2013 @ 12:35
Hey, fairly new to the forums

I've got a huge interest in design and I've wanted to share my work on other medias other than the internet, so I'm currently in the final stages of releasing my work on tee's. I've spent the last few months on a personal design project called "Staunch" which helps young males really live life. So I'm taking the theme and ideas from that project and starting Staunch as a clothing line. Because of costs I'm starting off with very small drops of tee's and plan to keep the drops small. I want the experience with each tee purchase to be a special one, So I'm packaging the TShirt in a brown paper bag, placed with the tshirt will be a photo of the Tshirt they have brought, on the back of that photo a personal message will be written by me and the Tshirt will be given a number from #1 to #10. (Only printing 10 tshirts per design).

Here are some of the design mockups, will be choosing one and printing next week. Would love your opinions, please.

1.


2.

3.

4.

I'm more interested than having my own personal tshirts out there than profit. So it's looking like it will be a very slow start but I'm passionate about doing this. Feedback, ideas, critique is very welcomed!

Whats up Hypebeast been checking out the forum for a while and im really digging the feedback you guys give. I have a brand named Rag Cal! and we just dropped our new collection. Just wanted to drop by and see what you guys think of the pieces. Hit me up if you have any questions about the brand or clothes.

Personally wouldn't wear any of it but it appears to be well designed and I certainly appreciate a well designed text logo that isn't inside of a rectangle in a serif font. Overall a solid aesthetic.

I've noticed it's a lot of bashing on this forum instead of giving constructive criticism and advice on how to help each other become a better brand. The ironic part is the people you're bashing are the more successful brands in terms of sales and marketing.

Let's start helping each other out instead of trying to break each other down.

Just my thoughts.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this brand. Cool name, and decent logo, par for the course lookbook. There's just not much actual subsistence to the clothes.

That being said, I hope your first collection sells well enough that you can go on to making shirts other than just ones with your brand name on them.

like the color palette
need to fix kerning between W and A. That or use a better modern typeface, didot or bodoni.

Yea I feel what you saying. We haven't been out for too long, so we been focused on developing our logo and branding and getting our name out there. But we been working on better designs with meaning/substance so expect to see some new stuff this summer. And I appreciate the feedback.

Exactly what you should be doing in the beginning stages my dude. Keep grinding and keep branding. Get that name and logo recognized FIRST them go from there.

Look book likes nice and I dig the color options on the hoodies/crews. But, I probably wouldn't have done so many hoods due to the fact that it is getting hotter now in most states and it may be harder to push the hoods + shipping cost since they're heavier. Plus, you may take a larger hit if you give some out...but I guess that's why you have shirts too. Overall, one of the better brands I've seen in the past few pages. Good luck guys!

You guys are off to a good start,  it would've been cool to see an olive or charcoal colored tee but I'm sure you guys have something like that lined up for later on. Good luck with everything.

Hey this is my first forum post so I'm extremely new at this...

I've been buliding up relations with oversea manufactureres and my question is: what is the best way to
ask a manufacturer to front the ordered product? I've heard Nick Diamonds talk about this and am wondering 
if it is a common practice...

Thanks!

Yea I agree. We actually wanted to have these out much earlier but some stuff came up. But we're based in Chicago so it's still hoodie weather for a while. It actually snowed a bit today lol. And I really appreciate the compliment!
