It really makes me mad when "brands" do the whole black/white with their products in color thing. Like cool, man. You've proven to me you can do what every other shit head with a camera and torrented copy of photoshop can do. Show me something I haven't seen.

Starting my own brand soon. Do you guys use local printers, and do they let you customize the inside tag? And what blanks does supreme use?
If you have to ask these questions, (and if you actually think this is place people want to answer them) then you probably shouldn't start a clothing company. 

(You should use CustomInk, and Supreme prints on Gildan.)

The thread is called starting a new line/brand, where else would I ask this?
Thanks for being a faggot though and giving me terrible answers. I'm starting a brand because I have more connections and a bigger following than you'll ever have, so please don't tell me I can't start one.

Yes, local printers are the best unless they suck, but try and find a really good one thats done a variety of different prints. If not try a city near you (you can go to google type in your city then screen printers like "Los Angeles screen printers" a few should come up) and yes you design the tags and they print them for you. ( its usually a little more but worth it)
 
Pretty sure Supreme uses Hanes, but if anything go with Alstyle. Not sure on the pricing of Hanes blanks.

why were those terrible answers, he answered your questions and made you realize that not everyone is going to be willing to help you. Its a rough industry, no ones going to hold your hand.

In my opinion your product shots are lack luster and the lighting is terrible. In terms of the other photos (the ones not of the people just standing) I don't really dig it because I can't really see any of the product completely except for the face mask lookin thing. The main thing my eyes went to was those Waldo lookin socks. I'd go round two with this photo shoot cause it just seems a little lack luster.

Depends what the product is made out of, and what type of inks and printing method is used. 
Digital prints are usually done on cotton, or light cotton blends.
Screen printing can print on anything flat, with different inks for different material.

If you buy cotton t's you won't have any issues, always ask your printer for a sample though so you can feel and wash the print, it's a little more time consuming but worth it in the long run.

Anybody can put some fucking ink on some cotton, doesn't mean you necessarily own a brand. If you think this thread is a resource for hard working people to tell you a formula to make money quick then you're dead wrong. This is where people who have already done the leg work come to show off their projects and presumably get constructive feedback on it.

The only reason you have a 'following' is because theres 95 thousand dickriders out there who think you're something that you're not.

And for all the dipshits out there who think Supreme is printed on hanes/gildan/alstyle etc. they're cut and sew blanks so you won't find any blanks out there with comparable quality.

I actually agree with the lighting issue, it's okay with the hoodie shots, but I didn't realize how dark the other ones were until I saw them side-by-side. There are more photos from the cereal shoot on the website that show the shirts better, but I do see your point. Next time I'll tell the cameraman to focus more on the shirts.

Thanks for the criticism, we are always looking to improve and this helps.

Since this thread has turned into the "fuck your brand' or "that shit is terrible" section of the forum on Hypebeast, I'm going to offer my two cents on "Starting Your Brand".

1. Many people say no one will hold your hand.
     That shit is simply untrue. Nobody will baby you, of course, but many people are willing and able to explain the process to you. Go to any brick and mortar and ask questions and be cool about it. Find out who your base is by checking out the scene you're influenced by. Engaging with your community is the single best way to start your brand. Learn what they do, eat, and talk about. It's a strong hand hold because you get info direct from the source. If your community likes your shit, there is absolutely no need to post it on HB.

2. RESEARCH and LEARN
    Half of the dudes on here won't give you a straight answer because they are also trying to start a brand. So this is probably not the best place to receive "constructive" criticism. It's ok though because with luck they'll be wearing your shit in a few years;) This is why researching is the single best way to get "lucky". There is an old saying "luck favors the prepared". If you have everything ready (business plan, strategy, pieces, etc.) before you strike gold your brand is...well...golden! And by everything I mean from the mission down to the customer service. It doesn't matter if you have 15 followers or 500. The experience of your brand should always remain the same.

FINALLY!

3. BE UNIQUE
    I know it's a given but almost ALL streetwear brands offer the same pieces, and in the same order, which by definition is NOT unique. Don't be afraid to offer something different. Is there a piece that people in your community want that they don't have? Is there something in their wardrobe that is lacking? Find OUT!! So many people say things like "I wish I had some socks that had blah blah blah" or something to that affect. WRITE THAT SHIT DOWN!! You may be able to make that unique piece! Making a unique piece can garner more attention than a regular t-shirt. Honestly the t-shirt is a boring piece. If your 180'd it and did a cut and sew project first that would add value to your brand. So shoot for the sky and be creative! 

I have a longer piece that illustrates this more clearly here. If you feel the need to hit me up and get some more info on how to build your brand in a constructive manner hit me up! And fuck everybody who wants to hate because all I want to do is help. CHEERS!

Our brands motto is "Loyalty initially royalty infinitely" the design you see has a quote "thou shall not rest til thy whole family eats" .  The main feel i want to bring from my brand is a sense of loyalty mixed with things I feel that interest my members and I.

Haha that's funny, the reason I'm starting an accessories brand is for that exact reason; not enough people want to put in the time. Great points above for sure.

I have issues with this. Only because the Japanese text makes no sense, actually it doesn't even exist. I'm not trying to be too critical but it seems a bit like you're trying too hard to be different with the kanji. For the record I do read and speak Japanese so this caught me off guard. I'm just throwing you a bone before someone else notices.

its actually chinese my dude probably should have said that but …冒牌者 this is it rite here. on "google translate" it means pretender, i feel as though translate is sometimes wrong so i will verify it with a friend that lives there at the moment. the reason for the Chinese writing for 1 it looks way better than writing out pretender (opinion) and i throughout the past 2 years have made friends and contacts with people that live there building an eBay electronics "business or store" its the only source of my money i had ever really had so it has a big impact on my life.
(at where it says (ace) or with those weird symbols is where i pasted the Chinese for some reason its not letting it be viewed)

Catch the All-New 6 & custom 7 Panel this Friday 7/12.
www.foregroundclothing.com

 I'll try and give a little constructive criticism of what I think about this brand. Mainly based on the website and the hats you guys have put out so far for people. At first glance the two hats look okay, which they really are just okay. I must say, from what you guys posted on here with these two shots, I see how nice the quality of that camera is, some fancy shit going on there. However, The background shots look misplaced, random, and awkward. They don't look like they belong or have anything to do with your products. Some of your designs are a bit random, in this case lets talk about the rising crown hat. I understand your message behind this one, and you do a good job constructing it to follow through within the design, but my gripe with this one is the color combination you guys decided to go with. For me, that pink does not seem to stand out well on the hat, and you guys should have tried to make that brain be more obvious to looking like a brain, but it's good enough. Not only the color combination but to name the hat rising crown and to represent the brain as a crown is a bit out of place, but it's just a gripe I'm having with it, I feel it doesn't seem to fit. Then, The second hat, The Seventh Crown, seems to be just another standard hat with the branding logo on it in order to get your name out there, which is fine however I've seen that side ways diamond shape in so many other logos and I think you really could of done better and did something truly more original. Then I don't know the basis of why calling it the seventh crown either? I wouldn't fuck with those colors either but that's just personal preference. I would probably never wear the first hat, but the second would look decent if I could find something that goes well with it. On a scale form 1-10 I'd give your first hat a 4 and your second a 5. I'm really not a big fan of the color combo you are doing and the hats seem to just have slapped on designs. 

 Your website has some nice looking little models.Those girls look cute as fuck, but your designs look sort of half assed. I'm not going to go into full detail with your shirts, but my overall summary is try to put a little more  originality into it, glad each product has a meaning behind and a simple one everyone could understand and fuck with, but try to make these designs a little more original. They look a bit generic right now, sort of like something you can just buy randomly at wal-mart or something. Also work on your color scheme. If you can try to experiment with contrast for your designs and see how that will work out for you. I'll give you credit for putting actual tags on your products although, and again as I stated before, I'm not a fan of the color you used and also the words you chose like 'beastmode" and "beastingit" is a joke in my eyes. This ain't xbox live, we ain't playing call of duty up in here. Your sweatpants remind me of some 80s b-boy gear, but again your designs are good but only if you want them to belong at Walmart or Zoomies. I suggest you take time off and think of designs that appeal to the group of people you are trying to sell it to. So if you want some wal-mart ass designs go make the best possible wal-mart looking designs you can. So I hope this was helpful and helped you realized what you may need help on and what you don't. Just my opinion and of course I wish your brand the best and keep doing what you do.
