These guys are not exactly new, but their hustle is strong! http://randomobjects.net/
Dude started with 4 or 5 tees a few years ago, and now look at them. 
They definitely have inspired me to get on the grind heavy.

Man, don't ged mad about the thumbs down thing. No one is trying to be mean, but sometimes people are not willing to spend time on tips and criticism, and that's why we simply thumb up or down.

You know when you go at your favorite store to buy some tees and then the seller tries to impress you?
"I've got some that will be perfect for you! You'll love it!" and then when you see them (in case you dont like any) you just go "Nah..." "Nah..." "Nice but not for me..." "Maybe another time...".

This is the real life version of thumbing down.

If the product is in a store, with a price tag, and someone is showing it like a special thing or hypeworth, there is no point engaging in criticism. You'd be like: "No, this typography sucks" "That design is way off balance" "What a crappy sewing!" "I hate all this colors". The only thing you can create by acting this way is embarrasment.

I personally didn't thumb you down, but i believe one of the main reasons people are doing it to you is the fact that you made a bad 1st impression. You showed up with very rough t-shirt templates and you were already selling them on estabilished brand prices, and they are not even made yet. This bad start just ringed the alarm of lower professionalism.

By looking at the mockups you did, it's impossible to tell if they have good cotton, sewing, fit, printing, and if you will remove the blank factory tags to put yours on. 

You will make a lot more of this community if you clear things up so people can tell if their feedback will be worthy or not.

I like the name AMBESSA. Sounds good and reminds me of Ambassador, which is also strong. You made one of the hardest parts. Keep improving the designs and the way you present them, because some guys are showing great stuff here (lookbooks, websites, teasers) and raising this thread's bar everyday.

PS* A few pages back the dude from Trainwrecker's Club went through the same "thumb down" situation and educatedly asked for deeper feedback. I may never buy one of his products, but if i ever see them around, i'll have respect for their work because of how they behaved. By the end of the day, your brand is an extension of yourself.

yeah i understand that, I really need to get my shirts in physical and present them correctly before I come on here so people can properly judge them, thank you for the feedback, next time I'm here i'll have pics of the physical copy and maybe a couple more designs and hopefully they look good. thanks again

I have 10 preorders on that shirt but nobody is going to buy it? You don't have to buy the shirt if you don't like the price, but others will.

Awesome desgins, I really like the simplicity. Some graphic tees are overdone nowadays
shit is weak b
isn't that Sailor Jerry's design? minus the lei

^yep, it's actually used on the front of the bottle of rum they make under his name.
If you're going to rip someone off, it's probably not a smart idea to use one of the few images that is actually still being used on a product sold today.

Some of the shit on here makes me smh. 
Aug 07, 2013 @ 17:54
Aight like I promised here's todays preview. starting a lil early today this time. Alot of people said they liked this tee when we came out with it before we tried to act all high and mighty. But they also said that we were raping with the prices. We tried to charge $365 I think for this tee. Lets just say...... that didnt work lol. This tee is coming out this FRIDAY with the rest of the drop.

bruh I'd take that money and go by myself a zip of the tastiest buddah around and still have some money to get a different shirt. Nah but on a serious note in all reality I think your designs have some potential but I don't really think I would rock it myself . I don't particularly like the style of photography you've been using for your previews but I know a lot of people dig that type of stuff. Glad to see you took some of that feedback when you wanted to charge an arm and a leg for product, shows you actually want to try an improve and make adjustments so keep grindin man!
