Some designs from our debut/Spring Collection:











We're a Vancouver based streetwear brand. The rest of the collection can be found at http://www.becomeinvisible.ca/ 

Any feedback is appreciated. I'm pretty new to Hypebeast forums, but seeing a lot of good stuff here!

Thanks.
I've seen others post this too, but I'm not too big of a fan of big logos on shirts. Especially after you wash it only once or twice and the image is already fading.. Sometimes it's better to be simple.

@hkeys idk if you guys care, but i did a little write up on your guys' brand on our blog.

since noisev is gonna be going into a hiatus from production after the summer line, we're gonna be starting to feature young brands, art, artists, photogs, etc. that we feel should be recognized. we'll also be taking submissions if anyone feels like we'd be into what they're doing.

this goes out to all creative and artistic platforms that you guys are doing. it's not strictly colthing brand based.

contactnoisev@gmail.com
Hell yeah man that's awesome. I appreciate it. Digging your brand as well, that tie dye joint looks pretty sweet.

Here are some links to "FREE" PDF's I managed to upload incase some of you dont know how to bit-torrent or aren't exactly up to pace with modern technology, Im sure you all are.

How to create a kick ass tshirt brand

EDIT: Virus free, your computer may ask but this is simply because the e-books provide internet links to websites and videos on youtube regarding vinyl printing and so on.

This is a T-shirt I made called "Trippy", It has a 100%cotton body with abstract printed sleeves & Collar + black wooden buttons. This was going to be in my upcoming summer collection but the factory run out of this cool fabric so I had to change it to black polka dot sleeves instead. Hope you like it and give me some feedback on this style.

We are Lucidbrand a new Streetwear label from Sweden that focus on making cut & sew products with high quality and smart details.

Our homepage/store is currently being updated so not much info on there. I will get back with more info when we get the page up and running again.

This. If 8% is all you can discount while retaining a decent profit margin, you're better off not discounting at all.

thanks for the shoutout bruh.

can't really add much more to the required reading pile, minus some good sites:

http://mintees.com/ good site to find designers, and a good place to try and learn design. think there's a few tuts on shirt blanks and the like, but primarily a community for designers.

http://www.t-shirtforums.com/ this one gets posted around a lot, but really deserves to be posted again.

http://www.howtostartaclothingcompany.com/ pretty sure I mentioned this one a few pages back, but it's also worth mentioning again.

http://howtostartaclothingbrand.com/ebook/ ebook I found written by the guy who used to run Fourward, a brand apparently popular within the electronic music/dubstep/rave/etc scene. deadmau5 wore some of his shit. been meaning to cop it, but been putting off putting funds into paypal. haven't been able to find it for free, either.

Prices were higher, we made what our target goal was. We're trying to get rid of these items because its getting warm out now. The prices are not outrageous we believe. Would you rather have 5% off?

I think the point I and others were trying to get across is that 8% is so little it seems kinda silly. If you can't discount at least 10-15%, I wouldn't put them on sale.

Haha how are you gonna have an 8% off sale when you only have one clothing item you're selling. Also, you guys have a pretty cool name but when you use "CLMND" it kind of defeats the purpose.

One thing I don't get with a lot of the brands on here is why everyone just uses their brand name as a shirt design. That doesn't count as creativity. I understand having one tee with your brand name on it because you want to have exposure and want to get your brand name out, but you have to come up with some other original ideas too. What is the purpose of your brand? What are you trying to sell or portray yourself and your future customers as? I feel like a lot of people are making clothes just to make clothes and don't have a passion for it. You won't make it in any industry without passion, especially not this one.

It was a general statement based on a lot of the stuff I've seen on here. Although, I did go on your website and I only saw one shirt and it did have your brand name on it so...

Again, not trying to hate on anyone on here, I'm just giving my opinion. I think it's great that so many people are trying to follow their dreams and make a clothing line.

I had a similar problem, I thought of a name initially, hated it later on, this has happened about 3 times. I thought of one a couple months ago that I really liked and it had a good concept but I found out a pretty well established brand already had it. Only a little while ago I thought of something that I loved, had a great concept and wasn't in use, I think if you haven't figured out a name you like yet, you likely shouldn't start a brand because the name is really what defines it.

i wasnt talking about anyone i was saying how i need a name and i cant think of one i can appreciate on a long term basis
May 06, 2013 @ 01:32
Part of the process. I finally settled on my fifth name since June of '11 around February. The name will come with developing and perfecting an aesthetic and vision, which for me has taken that long. 

I'd say wait at least a year - while developing, brainstorming, etc. everyday - before trying to launch anything. It'll be more satisfactory to you overall and will give you the one up on the people who clearly rush into this with little to no additional thought.
