Is it a cheaper option to use Vinyl if  I want to print a shirt with multiple designs on it ? What's the quality of Vinyl like compared to Screen Printing, from your point of view ?


Vinyl will peel eventually after multple washes. Upgrade to thermoflex it is a little better. But to be honest the comparison between them and silk screen is night and day.
I would do silk screen.

I second this. Even within silk screening there are different types of ink and processes. You should always ask what type of inks a printer uses and what the mesh count of the screens are. Both of these factors determine how the print feels on the shirt. If I were a betting man (which I am not) I would say that you want a relatively "soft" feel to your print. If that is the case then NEVER go with vinyl. Stick with paying the few extra bucks with silk screen. Also if you are just starting a brand, order the usual minimum of 24 shirts with your print on a promo t-shirt (that way you can give them away later) and test how the print feels. It's a hell of a process but at the end of the day you'll be happy you did it.

Thanks both of you guys !!

Yes, I want a soft feel on the shirt, I want it to be comfortable to wear (and easy to maintain) ! I'll show you guys what I come up with as soon as I'm done

That's why it may be counter productive to present your clothes to a base that is HIGHLY critical of nearly everything. The best thing to do is know your demographic and present it to them. Fuck everybody else. The great thing about fashion is that somebody, somewhere, will like your shit (even if it's terrible). There's what? Like 6 billion people on this Earth? Yeah I'm pretty sure you can find someone to sell to. But you are right sir. Hate is every where.

My team and I are building a website where indie and start-up brands can critique, collaborate, and learn from each other. The project is called "Future Digs" (logo below). Do you all think a site like this is necessary or do you think it would be redundant to build yet another website dedicated to learning your craft?

Dafuq? I asked a question about a future WEBSITE NOT a clothinging brand... How the hell did I get a thumbs-fuckin-down!? It was a question... I swear some of you need some friends. My team and I are trying to help some of these slow muthf... you know what? I've got no time to rant about dumb ish... I pose the question for those who want an intelligent conversation. 

Do we need a better community for sharing and building the brands people make or is this path futile?

Chill out dude it's just the internet.

Every thing you need to know about starting and running a clothing brand is already on the internet if you can be bothered to find it. 
Compiling it all into one website with a nice layout, forums, an area for people to show and collaborate their work and maybe some interviews and demonstrations etc would be good but it isn't really ground breaking, this thread alone has the potential to almost be all that, instead 80% of it is just morons talking shit.

I dont really know what your idea's are so it's hard to comment, but I like the idea of people having to actually spend time and effort learning and researching the process without having their hand held, it gives you a good idea of what you can really do with clothing and not just the opinion of the person writing the article.
We would see a lot less of these CaLiSwAgLyFe clothing labels popping up, and more well thought out and unique labels if every one had a clue before they got on Ps and called their local screen printer. 

I hope this helps man.

I think it's a good idea.
As long as the forum doesn't get full of clothing lines and designers who think their shit don't stink....
much like this one....
But go for it man, Support from my area.
Reaching out to other brands and Collabs is always a good idea for starter brands. Something I have been looking into myself. There is not just not a platform for communication.

Recently released our Stvunch Beanie, was really happy with the outcome and they are selling well.
Only thing I would question would be the  size of the 'STVUNCH' embroidery, Would you prefer if it was larger?




Just looking for some feedback for future beanies,

I was...joking... I guess sarcasm doesn't go over well at Hypebeast :/ In any case we know it's not groundbreaking (neither was Facebook but now look at it now) but the problem is the community is splintered. Hypebeast could be but it'ss just a forum. A website dedicated to aggregating all the information you need would be extremely helpful in our eyes. Problem is many don't know where to look. We aim to solve the the problem.

Sample for a brand that im starting, minor adjustments need to be done to the eyelets im looking for lots of feedback on what you think so far recently i have been looking for a new manufacturer for my 5 panel hat ive finally came across two (really good ones) and i am in the process of choosing one of them. the reason i am not going with the manufacturer i had recently (the one that made the sample for me) is because i felt as though the quality on the hat could be MUCH improved and i myself don't want to put out a shit product. this has given my brands first drop a bit of delay but i want to do things rite the first time and not cut corners but I'm positive it will be beneficial in my part. follow me on instagram i will be posting the progress of the brand and other designs i will be coming out with i have no set date at the moment but this is going to happen and it will happen the rite way. i appreciate the people that have messaged me and are so interested in coping much love (@julioescala)

Let me tell you about me my name is Mitch born and raised most of my life in Queens New York. Statement is a brand that tries to do just that make a statement. The logo's you see aren't just there every detail has a purpose and connection to the next. I try to pay attention to every detail so that you can reenact the emotion or thought that's being shown. Statement is composed to not be compared which is the reason it's created by the thoughts that go through my head, personality traits and experiences nothing fictional. By no means do I want anyone to feel offended by anything as I said these are my experiences. Although the brand is in the final stages of getting up and running I wanted to come here to share my line and hopefully improve it. Please keep in mind I have really only been designing clothes for about two weeks so I know my shirts may need a lot of work but that's why I'm here. So of course feedback is welcome both negative and positive. 


"Woman of my dreams" Tee Everyone has experienced the infamous girl of your dreams whether she is the one your with or the one on your TV she is yours (in your head).


Growing up in Queens basketball is one of the things you breathe. So when I was younger my uncle would always make sure we watched Micheal Jordan as he achieved his dreams.



"Sell your sole" Tee this is a trait of mine I'm not very proud of however it is who I am so I accept it.


Unfortantely we all have experienced this feeling also this is the "Wrath" Tee. This is experienced through emotional pain and revenge from a girl you scarred.

Ive been running Strictly Street for about 2 weeks now and its been getting some good hype. Basically its just an instagram to keep you updated on some good upcoming brands. All the instagram posts go directly to the SS tumblr as well. All the brands on there i can assure you are brands that deserve to be put up there, and it will continue that way.

This is really just to help put good upcoming brands in the spotlight, most of the posts have little reviews on them, so please feel free to check it out and if you dig, give it a follow, i put a good effort into making some of the collages and reviews for these brands and all i ask for is for people to read it and check them out.

Official website coming soon.
http://instagram.com/strictlystreet

http://strictlystreet13.tumblr.com/

If you would like to be featured on SS feel free to email: strictlystreet13@yahoo.com with your website so i can check it out.

We will be having a giveaway with a brand on instagram soon.
