@fosace I'm really not trying to crucify you lol. Its just interesting to see your thinking. I didn't say not to compare the two, just thought your comparison was bad. But again, good luck and I wish you guys well. Your previous shit was dope and I just hope it gets better, not the opposite.
ok cool ive been doing this discussion on my lonesome for a couple of days now, and my partners been telling me to just keep my cool (cuz usually im not this chill lol). But dude thanks we're gonna keep on putting out some cool stuff for you guys and maybe you might like the next piece, maybe the next piece might stir up less of a ruckus, maybe more idk.

Went to some crazy ran down warehouse earlier today with the team. Shot our Summer '13 look book. New collection releases Friday June 14th.

I actually kinda like this better than most of the other stuff you have released, maybe for another tee instead of the lightening bolts maybe make a military patch....just an idea
Yeah that's a good idea. Been thinking about doing something along that line for a while. Appreciate the kind words Brave.

It boggles my mind that some people think just because something is cut and sewn in China, Japan or Bangladesh that the shirt is superior now to all other shirts.
Made in the USA doesn't always  mean the best quality work either because some hire immagrants workers to keep the cost down and labor high.

How people think because big brands are having their shirts cut and sewn they are paying a lot to have the shirt made.
Brands are making 1000x as many shirts as independent labels and supplying nation sometimes world-wide.
They are paying maybe .50 - $1 for the shirt and having it silk screen for far less then what some of us are paying
Cut and Sew does not mean it cost more to make on a larger scale nor does it mean better quality.

When your finances are up you guys will understand that better.
Unless you are visiting the factories where the garments are being made and doing a inspection on each garment, please stop with that this is the highest quality garment, piece, or shirt out.

I just had to say that.

So since the recent topics of discussion has been about pricing of shirts, I need some opinions. A lot of the bigger brands like Crooks, Diamond, Black Scale, Hundreds, etc. price their shirts around $30-34 a tee. I'm sure when they first started off, they weren't always that much (I'm just assuming here). Then I notice other "smaller" brands like Us Versus Them price their shirts at around $24+. I understand the whole "we price high because we want to keep things exclusive/attract the market of consumers who want 'premium' goods/establish ourselves next to the bigger brands/ etc. etc." But realistically speaking, what price range do you feel is good for a newly established brand to start off with? I'm thinking $26-28 range, then increase as your brand grows and becomes more recognized instead of launching at $32 right off the bat. I know it's also a matter of personal opinion and how much you feel it's worth, but scratch that. I just wanna get some opinions lol

I think, that if shirt is good and I would buy it for 26$ I would still buy it for 32$. Ar first it need to be good, that's the truth.

I actually do follow this thread consistently and read through all the posts. Cliquegarment's comment above is exactly the type of feedback I'm looking for. I'll search around the other threads to see if there's been any other discussions on this topic. Thanks!

I do agree with this. I think the quality of the design is the foremost important factor and I usually don't buy tees based upon the price. I have bought tees from small brands for $15 and didn't think twice about a 'cheap' factor purely because the graphic was goods. I also have no problem paying $32+ for tees on a regular basis, granted not everyone is like me and purely spends their disposable income on clothes but I think you get the point. But to answer your initial question, I personally thing $20-25 is a good area and leaves plenty of room for expansion and growth.

Project Nibiru: I Hope you guys don't use that type of hat and also I hope that its just template. Aside from the rain logo tee, the tee designs and the photo-shoot doesn't look too thought out as they could be, but I dig your guys overall image, it's very nostalgic, reminds me of the 80's. My advice is to plan out things more. If you guys are trying to do landscape portraits as the main image for the tee's you should try to see which layout works best, which looks like what you guys were trying to to do.


the best of luck to you guys

Yeah, I saw Eric did that. This wasn't our main location but the weather started to turn on us and it was super hot. Actually started to shoot at the same place we shot our last one, except this time it was Sunday so that's when the market is open and a lot of interaction occurs. This place was just spur of the moment but the shots still came out pretty cool. Always feel like look books have more depth if you just keep it organic and just go do something versus just shooting behind a white screen or posing all awkwardly haha.

You're right it is based off of personal opinion. Quality wise, all you need are 1301 Alstyle blanks, good quality printing, and a woven label/hem tag on a shirt and you just constructed a Hundreds, Diamonds, etc type of shirt and could sell yours for that exact amount. Now, if you are new and you have lack luster designs than pricing that high may not be the best bet. I could price our shirts at $28 if I wanted but so far it's only been $20-25 range, (Hoodies, crews, and jackets have been around $40-50). Not because the quality isn't there b/c it surely is. Reason being is that we're still growing and feel that at the moment that's a good price to keep our shirts at, and don't have that crazy hype where we can price our shirts at anything and they will sell out instantly. We do well sales wise and pick up double the amount of sales each release. This new drop will be $22 a shirt. I mean, if you maybe have some type of custom packaging or hang tags, etc. then you could probably bump up the cost.

For those of you that have been running your brand successfully for a year, what are some of the roles other than designing, that you've assigned to members? When I say successful , I mean you've seen some type of growth than when you first started.

NEPTUNE NYC, BAPE inspired brand founded back in 2011. I get a lot of positive feedback from my peers but every once in a while I get the "Looks too much like BAPE" criticism(Which personally, I take as a compliment). I do love BAPE and in all honestly, I actually did want the logo to resemble that of the popular Japanese brand. Let me know what you guys on hypebeast think about the brand so far. Be as brutally honest as possible.
