just started my line check it out http://livwealthy.com or http://livwealthy.bigcartel.com let me know what you think....thanks

Honestly I really dislike these brands that try to glorify how rich they. It just seems like you are trying to say you are better than the middle class and poor people. Overall the idea doesn't do anything for society except worsen it and stretch the gap between rich and poor Plus, none of your stuff is that impressive; all you are doing is following the passing trend. Plus, your website was hard to figure out. Plus, you should have something better than a basic bigcartel account if you are charging that much scrilla.


looks good...nice patch on tee, love the pendants....the overall idea and theme is fine! "stretch the gap between rich and poor"....wtf you talkin bout?

Also- bigcartel is a really good webstore no matter how much your product cost!

I think, as far as art direction goes, it seems a bit outdated. It seems like a good amount of work was put into it, but the products aren't really doing it for me. The price points are a bit high - since you are just starting I would gradually bring the price higher. The logo and typeface could definitely do some reworking, that brings down your brand a lot. Take more time into branding the brand. A knight? You could be more original.

The theme sort of reminds me of Billionaire Boys Club. Expensive products with the rich person theme. The "Made for Rich People" is pretty funny but douchy, hahahaha. But I would take more time in branding it and studying your target market and designing it.

Thats just my 2 cents.


agreed...the art and font for the logo could use a lil work...

Great idea, people love it. I have been using the same technique for about a year now on one of my products and get a great reception. Are you hand dripping the wax for each order? Make sure you use authentic sealing wax, for the best quality.

I am trying to gauge interest to see if there is a market for blank Japanese Loopwheel Cotton sweatshirts and hoodies for the Fall/Winter 2012? I am currently designing my line and will have a few bolt of excess loopwheel and wanted to see if was worth it to produce blanks for the up and coming lines for better quality.

I agree, the "Riders" tee is the most appealing graphically, and it has the coolest font.

Thanks for the quick feedback y'all! The original post has been updated with larger-print mock-ups of the latter two concepts.

I don't think the third design should lose the "riders unto the night" aspect (it's my favorite part)

and to be clear when you say riders emblem, did you mean the bust surrounded by chains? I was referring to the skeleton on a motorcycle.

That's awesome that the 'Riders Unto the Night' idea sticks. Since I thought up the motto, it's really become a phrase that embodies the thought process between the mindset and lifestyle of the La Mash art and brand.

Yes, I was referring to the circular bust with chains as the Riders' emblem. Though the several people I have spoken to regarding their favorite among the three pick the full 'Riders' cycle print as their favorite. I'm just happy that someone aside from myself digs the imagery, haha.

Dang. I've been lookin' for some sweats like that.
I think you should sell some sweats without the text though, or at least with subtler text. I'd buy those if it wasn't for that.


Thanks you for your interest. We're working on expanding varieties for the ninja sweats. We'll update here once we have them ready. Stay tuned.

i doubt they order from a company any of us would be able to order from. Nike is a huge company, and brands like that usually get their shirts custom made to fit their specs.

Ya to be honest it could be a knock off shirt, nike is way to huge to use blanks. theres no way in hell they cut tags off haha. And they order from factories overseas, if you can find a good one and meet their MOQ's then you can use them. Larger companies put in a lot more physical leg work like actually going to their factories and fabric sourcers multiple times throughout the year. its still possible for small companies to get cut & sew overseas if you look hard enough. took me a couple months to find my first factory then they sort of come easier after that once you know what to look for and how to inquire
