Trespasserapparel.comyou guys tried too hard on everything, overly done and it looks more car dealership than a brand.

ouch haha never thought putting in hard work and making a quality product would be bad thanks for the input @mrsovl
I think he means it comes off a little forced. Atleast that's the impression I got. Cut out the b.s. extra shine and just show us what your brand embodies. Just be authentic with it.

aight so basically this shirt is releasing friday with some other stuff. So imma do a preview a day for the next four days til the drop comes out. We would hope you've seen this stuff before from us when we tried to charge an arm and a leg for it before. This time it'll be reasonably priced and we're gonna do it for the people who've been there since SSE. Hey I'm not gonna hype it up man check it out its gonna be fire




The arms say "true pleasure never comes before pain"
Store/Friday


Nice but what's that creature running suppose to symbolize.
thanks man, its technically another brand really. I drew it while I was in college before I dropped out and shit. It really just symbolizes........nothing I guess. Its just a tiger I drew most likely while I was under the influence. But the message on the arms mean alot to me tho. "true pleasure never comes before pain" means that youll never get to where you really wanna be before you have to go through some shit you know

That's what happens you try to sell a lifestyle.
I see that a lot as well. Not that it's a bad thing. But you have to find a median when it comes to advertising/promoting. It works for some people though.

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.

^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.
