Just started a clothing brand called The Curb Clothing Co.







It embodies late nights, hanging out with friends doing the same daily routine. Highly influenced in art and creative thinking The Curb is a movement in which everyone has done at one point of their lives which is kick'n it at the curb and tearing it up in the streets.

Fist tee produced:


Future tee's:






Thoughts' and ideas are appreciated thank you
the designs don't come close to matching to what you're talking about.... I expected to see something fun, free, but this isn't really doing much.
I agree I'm feeling conflicted as to where I should take my designs, what would you expect for a design or like to see?
What does this brand mean to you? You should figure what direction you want to go in so you have a better idea for designs.By "tearing it up" do you mean skating?
It means a lot more than just being with friends and yes skating too, I want to make this a brand in which someone can be inspired and motivated to go out and chase their dreams. A curb by definition is something that checks or restrains. On the



sides of streets we have curbs to restrain us from the road, prevent



cars from being on sidewalks and lawns, and regulates water and



transfers it to storm drains. It takes control of it's environment and



regulates everything it faces. That's \the message I want to get across. Take control of



everything around you, from unattainable wishes to small goals. Make it



happen, take control of who you are and what you become. That's what I want to make of The Curb. That's why I'm going to scrap all the designs and start from scratch but leave the logo the way it is. I feel like it illustrates the message by restraining the T in side the C.
That's cool man, I can appreciate the thought you put into what you want your brand to be about. I think you're doing the right thing by starting over and coming up with designs that better suit your brand's vision. Keep chasing your dream!
thats the description you should be using in my opinion...i would agree with sacrilege staring over is the best thing..take your time honestly 
P.S you guys should try and make your own designs instead of using free vectors found on the web lol easiy noticed

Dumb thing to say. If you want to be taken seriously, you gotta be serious. 
True, but you can have some fun in the clothing game. It's not like we're all stock brokers or some shit.

Because people go way into detail with their brand. They write about how they're going to change the world or do some inspirational shit. Feels like the market is saturated with these type of brands there's no need to keep adding to the pile. Keep it plain and simple. You're not going to change the world or better yet inspire someone through a piece of clothing... RELAX

Hey, Here's my story. I'm currently in my last year at College in New Zealand, for the last few years design and art have taken over. I've worked with a huge amount of companies and people the last few years creating logos and completing projects (Most found here - http://royds.deviantart.com/ and more recently here - http://dribbble.com/Royds) but seeing my work online hasn't been enough, I want to work with more mediums so since December last year I've been started bringing my passion to life, through more than just a .ai or .png file, but on tshirts, street signs and buildings, everywhere.

This is STVUNCH, STVUNCH is an example of passion, STVUNCH is big.

Below are photos of the first printed tee, Cop I







Printed stickers



Recently made a stencil, which is being put to good use.







I have a giant canvas board in my room that I constantly print out work and display it.



Cop II, which is currently being printed today.



I'm currently living my dream, and I'm enjoying it.

Enjoy the journey with me via

@jbumbumm guessing by your previous post, you are the type of person that doesn't inspire anyone or change anything.

Lol You know it's true man. I respect your work so I'm not hating on
you. Just some of these new brands on here go super into detail about
what their clothing line means, and their designs either lack creativity or have nothing to do with their image..

I agree, but at the same time if you want to make a living off your brand and the clothes you put out, you better take it seriously. To me, taking it seriously means being dedicated to your brand and trying to make it the best it can be. I think you have to be able to be open minded and laugh at yourself, but you also have to be serious when it comes to the business side of what you're doing. I do agree though that a lot of brands on here put this essay for a description and then their designs are just one cliche word or some unoriginal picture/drawing.

I just launched an Indiegogo for my brand called Always Starving. It is essentially a pre-order, I've seen a lot of Indiegogos that want you to donate money and get almost nothing in return. With out campaign you can get a lot for your money. We're doing 5 graphic tees, 2 pockets tees and for the campaign only, we are doing sunglasses and koozies. Please click the gallery tab on the Indiegogo to see what all of our designs look like.

Hey Guys

Iv started streetwear brand called Long days (clothing) about a year ago but we are still in the beginning. The name is patented and we have designed a few prints but that's pretty much it. We are planning to start making some sells this summer. I live in Helsinki, Finland and the streetwear isn't such a big thing in here, so i guess i just have to work extra hard haha

Here are few of our designs, hope u will like them and give me some feedback ! (I was stoked that Nicky Diamond liked our Short money design on instagram lol )

Why not just do 1 or 2 really good and well designed graphic tees and start from there?? instead of possibly doing 7 tees 3 good and 4 ok...not saying this is the case but im making a point. Start Small, who says you have to have a huge line for your first few releases.

Yea i know that was just a sample. Of course when we start sales we have to find manufacturer that makes t-shirts. Any tips finding a good one ? Here in Finland its way too expensive.

If you want to get a lower quality shirt like Anvil or something, you could get 100 shirts for $220.

Honestly, these designs look weak. I agree with Brave, you should try doing fewer designs and try to make them better. Your brand name is cool and I think you can come up with some pretty sweet designs that go with the name, but none of the designs I saw looked that good to me. I think you should go back and try to come up with some better designs that go with your name.

I think what they're trying to say is that a lot of these brands with a concept centered around being anti-society/rebellious, inspirational and all that, seem really forced, like the concept and designs took no real time to come up with. It just doesn't feel genuine because we've seen it so many times already, it starts to feel like these are the go to concepts for people who want to start a brand just to have one, or at least haven't put much time into developing one.

You can inspire people with clothes, but being so explicit about trying to do so is too easy, to me. The clothes of brands I look up to, A Bathing Ape, Billionaire Boys Club and Original Fake, still have value to people years and years later... Their clothes from five, ten years ago still see good money on eBay despite being preowned. On the surface you could say this is because of hype, but the fact of the matter is they make very well crafted, unique product that speaks for itself - at the end of the day, these brands have collectors (Who don't give a shit what celebs wore/wear the brand) and have made a legacy for themselves.

i agree with you on a lot of brands on here do have some bullshit message about anti-society, but saying "stop taking your brand so seriously" is dumb. there's no point in even running one if your not going to.

if anything they should have meant "take your brands more seriously" and maybe people would actually take more time into developing their concept and brand instead of rushing it and producing a cliche anti-society trendy line.
