New brand Boned coming soon, thoughts and criticism would be highly appreciated - http://bonedstore.bigcartel.com/





I can't really say I fuck with the name. Just sounds so corny, especially with all the sex references you're using in your clothing, although it does lend itself heavily to a theme.

The red box logo you have on your site looks clumsy to me, personally. The coming soon you also have on there is hard to read, for me at least.

Is this your first line? Because, if so, I think you may have overdone it. It looks like you took all the ideas you had for product and ran with them, going for quantity rather than quality. With so many bad products in the mix, it's hard for the good designs you have to shine. I would've just went with the Boned In Paris, Boned Maiden, Bone snapback, and maybe the Let's Bone beanie for a first run. These are your strongest products in my eyes.

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.

 
You sound like a educated or possibly mature individual to hold those opinions on drugs, so I explain to you the over extended metaphor we used to articulate the cut throat strive we carry to reach our goals and succeed. The fact that we are preparing "fake" drugs does not imply we ourselves idolize the USE of drugs but rather the SALE and the many aspects to pushing weight. The BUSINESS mentality of coming from nothing and creating an empire. How many rappers/artist do people idolize that claim to have came up by selling rocks? Someone also mentioned our "hipster" infinity logo when only a narrow minded individual would forgo to see the symbolism in an infinity symbol. We as humans are infinite, limitless and perfect. GODS if you will. The brand has great depth that will be shown more in coming collections, but we figured when we made the video most people wouldnt understand alot of the deeper meaning. Narrow minds form bad opinions. Lions dont lose sleep over the opinion of sheep. Elevate your thinking young gods.

And how many people are getting tired of rappers claiming they push weight, when all they do is carry it?

Doesn't really fit in with the rest of the stuff your other designs and the cat looks weird to me. I'd prefer to see your main bolt logo in the middle instead of the cat, I think that would be cool. You could use a greek mythology reference with Zeus and Hephaestus9who forged Zeus' bolts) to explain the bolt and hammer in the design. Hope this helped.

Appreciate the feedback. I was skeptical about the cat too - thanks.

NOISEVSUMMER2k13just wondering, have you gotten more traffic on your website since tyler rocked your shit on stage?
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.
Ever since I posted the higher quality photos of Tyler we haven't gotten too much traffic, but since then, Phil from Dertbag dropped by our page with a message. That was pretty cool.

I just updated our blog/site as well

Comparision I've gotten before and definately appreciate!
Globe is the logo indeed, navy tee is a different rendition of it though.

can we all agree to stop using arches, college fonts and mistral in the most unimaginative ways possible (not to rip on LITW specifically, just something i've noticed)

also the neckbeard in the first picture scared the willies out of me

You're coming off as corny and a little condescending. First off, your explanation for the drug metaphor is a reach to be honest. Realistically most customers aren't going to sit down and try to analyze your metaphor, it's not like you're a big brand so it's not worth their time. Do something different to promote your clothes via a video lookbook because creating fake drugs, sipping 40s and wearing supreme just ends up making your video look like a tumblr production lol. If you want people to understand your symbolism, YOU have to define it for them and actually tell what the lifestyle is. No one is going to look at your shit and say "Gee wilikers, their clothing represents the infinite nature of humans". Don't act like you're some high thinking designer when your ideas/concepts are recycled ideas that you didn't even bother to define for your audience. "Narrow minds form bad opinions. Lions dont lose sleep over the opinion of sheep. Elevate your thinking young gods." Fuck outta here with that pretending-to-be-deep-but-not-really nonsense. None of your stuff even remotely provokes the thought of higher thinking. Elevate your product bro.

Well aren't you clever. You have some really good points on consumerism, but the tumblr production your talking about is a critical marketing concept that has been extremely beneficial via $ALE$. Its the same idea that all upcoming hiphop artist happen to be wearing either : 10deep, supreme, the hundreds, blackscale, diamond ect. because subconsciously or consciously it provokes the person to consume that image. Of course its only obvious you need to promote your own image and meaning behind your brand but when your dropping your first collection like us here at VLS this allows us to enter the industry more highly regarded by CUSTOMERS/CONSUMERS and viewed just as highly as the brands we appear next to, hence why you see like 5 supreme caps in one frame and more supreme beanies on the couches lmao. Our brand carries a very conscious ora and encourages self enlightenment and freedom from mental slavery which will be executed more in the coming collections. For this video frankly deadlines were not met, production fell behind, and the video suffered because of that. Stick around though you have some good criticism and our brands only getting better , "creating every master piece better than our last release".
