So I 'launched' GET AHEAD a week or so ago with the one Tee seen in the photos, check it out and let me know what you guys think, any criticisms are welcome, I am aware of the currently bad photo on the actual store, will try and get a decent one of just the Tee tomorrow.

Anyway, how did some of you go about promoting when you first launched, I think I made a mistake in launching with very few Tumblr / Twitter / Facebook followers / likes and now I'm finding it tricky to gain interest 
( I know it's very early days but some tips wouldn't hurt) 

Any feedback on the design, site, store, blog would be great.

Haha I suppose that's correct british slang, if not only from 20 years ago.

Either way. Clever branding. I am always for simple, simple, simple.

The t-shirt. Don't even get me started man. Despite my thoughts about UK being far, far worse off than the US is, (governmentally, word to those riots man, yikes) the idea is nothing but clever.

Sail on man (get it, cause I'm across the pond)

no, but that's bc i never really pushed it out there as marketing, it was just something that was really cool to me personally. i just shared it on my personal instagram, and posted screencaps here, and on noisev's tumblr.

there was no actual quality photo of it that was getting around.

EDIT: I just found some decent photos and posted them on our blog. Maybe this will get us more traffic? If not, no big.

I hate to be "that guy", just for the simple fact, I am no better than anyone on this thread. But something I've noticed in some lookbooks is, OTHER BRANDS LOGOS BEING PROMOTED.....


A huge NO-NO, is to wear someone elses brand in your look book. You guys have The Hundreds and Supreme visible in your mini lookbook. Once I look at this picture I think, is this a The Hundreds add or Supreme add or some Tumblr Viral Photo.

Sorry to single you out dude, but that's something you don't do.... IMO

All my lookbooks, my models wear BASICS or items with NO VISIBLE logos, except for sneakers. And at that, I make sure the logo of the sneaker isn't showing. Those photos I posted earlier are not from my lookbook, those are from my iphone, so the Jordan Logo was visible.

You wanna promote your brand, not someone elses brand.

Hope this helps you out.


Not a diss to your brand, just something to help you out. People are gonna notice that shit. You wanna be as clean as possible.

I agree with your point, however only if we were already a well known brand or elite of the industry.
I see it as a marketing exploit. Consumers of our brand will see "SUPREME" and "the hundreds" in our image and subconsciously equate the two. It allows our company to emerge into a industry at equivalent levels of higher competition. Now plenty of people who are on the lookout for supreme will now remember VALUES Cult&Co and regard us as a brand of that caliper. Once established we will refrain from the obvious no-no of including other labels.

Hello to all the fellow, aspiring artists and brands! I've recently come up with a brand name and have gotten the logo designed. I have 5 t-shirt ideas that I am going to get made/photographed within the next couple of weeks, but I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation on which shirts you found to work best for screen printing and which labels you all used for you t shirts. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

To be honest. After seeing either the fake or real "coke" being made in the kitchen I didn't want to watch the video anymore.
Making a connection between those items and your clothes makes no sense.
Are you promoting drugs or your clothes
If you say you are promoting a lifestyle than you just singled out a number of people who can't relate or don't like drugs.

Haha Jake. I have to agree with Eric (Aldente) on the whole wearing other brands. That's the first thing I noticed and shook my head. Your pieces may be cool but you're taking away from those by having Supreme and the camo Hundreds hat. Also, the drugs and everything else just make it look like any other brand trying to start. It's like "What can we do to appeal to people? Oh I know lets post us with this shit" I've got nothing wrong with those items, because it's probably your lifestyle there's just more subtle ways of doing it while not taking it way from your clothes. I'm not even noticing your shirt in this picture I'm looking at the Supreme hat, 40 and bud. If it wasn't for those things and having them all in your face, I would consider this a well done look book. I mean you have a nice front photo, and it seems to be organic and not forced. Normal day to day stuff. Possibly put up a line sheet at the end because once again you can't fully see all of your items. Lastly, as far as having other brands maybe just wear a fitted or hat from your city? I know my buddy usually wears a Rays hat because we're from Tampa and have a lot of roots here in our city. Best of luck bud.

I can understand where you're coming from. I've recently started to dabble in street wear and thought the creative freedom it offered was great compared to other avenues of fashion.I've worked in women's tshirt design for awhile and it was really a breath of fresh air. I'll enjoy for the time being.

Then be creative man, this is literally just a Givenchi knockoff. Don't make excuses for it.
