Anybody else think it is harder starting a brand in high school than starting one in college or when your not in school, because you know some people are cheap and won't buy shit, I mean you could have some of the nicest stuff, but people wouldn't buy it because you know it's local and small, anybody doing this right starting you brand in high school?
I think it depends how you present it, if you as a person are really cool and friendly and people like you, it gives them a more positive vibe, a better reason to buy stuff. People are cheap I agree so set prices decently is always good, and give discounts if necessary. I'm in high school not gonna lie, and I always try to make something as good as I can, I hate just crappy clothes, I think if I would wear this stuff, I mostly wear supreme and lots of simple, but cool clothing, so I like to give what I like, and what I think other people will like. Keep going strong! Check out dertbag and Philip Post, he really got his start in highschool check him out, an inspiration for me. -Excelsior
Yeah Phil is a great example, but I really think he got big when he started his website, cause he gained a following off his clothes and he could ship to other states country's which got his stuff more known and then he had Odd Future find out about it through the Internet then they wear his stuff  and that's what really got him on and so on, same as Kobi with death precision inc., I really don't think you could get big by just selling locally you got to have a website because you can get more and more fans off of that, I'm just really hesistent on starting out in high school.
Yeah I agree, however I really feel like tumblr is the way to go these days, my website, nothing on it yet http://excelsiorexcelsior.tumblr.com/ seems like a good idea since it's very flexible in terms of themes and spread of things you post, tumblr is popular today with lots of people in high school and a lot of my friends have them, just keep the content going once you start up completely, if you're confident about your brand then don't be afraid to start in hs, I just think whether or not my ideas and brand will be still around in 10 years, with excelsior I am confident to start, also take time on brand naming, get the idea first, good luck!

dear brothers , , can you tell me why the items on this website so cheaper ? I want to buy one pair of shoes for my school ! Here is the link : http://www.cheapreps.net/Authentic-Air-Jordan-5-Retro-030-p329289.html
It's because they're not real. "Cheap Reps" was the first tip off, I kinda hope you were joking...

We thought more people wouldve wanted this tee to drop the correct way but nobody showed this tee love. All of the other tees are getting orders and we're all out of larges in Heroin Hadouken Tees thanks to the support. But nonetheless I'm about to pass out these tees to the drug dealers in my neighborhood and the homeless in Manhattan. I guess if you buy them it would be a win for us and if you dont buy them it would be a win for the streets. So everybody wins regardless. Cynthia tee, formerly known as the infamous Lonely Fiona Tee . Take advantage of the free shipping HB. It'll be there til.....well till this drop sells out

Im 16, in Highschool. I agree with you and everyone else, shits kinda hard but being young opens up a lot of oppertunity. and i also agree with the website stuff, the internet is the best way to get out there.

LOL @ passing them out to the drug dealers and homeless I fucks with it.  But just a suggestion if you're going to give them away just give them away to previous customers they'll appreciate it more than someone who isn't familiar with the brand. They might not have copped it when they placed their order but they still probably don't think it's wack. I personally like the shirt. Also if push comes to shove take it down for the season and bring it back sometime items do better the second time around. Also you may want to take some pics of this tee with a chick wearing preferably a thick ass jawn. That may help also. Best of luck to you bro.

google knows ALL the manufacturers, also i like the Shanti tee but you put in the description that Buddha was a god, which he wasn't, but thats just nitpicky shit, also you should take pictures of the backs of the tees rather than just describing them.

I'm having trouble with one of my 100+ t-shirts designs. I'm starting with 10, and one of the finalist......I think. "At what cost" is a design I'm having trouble with, because I've got about 3 different variations in my head, so I'd like to know what you guys think.

Variation 1 (At what cost) - Red devilish hands long nails black polish holding a rosary. That's semi set on fire because well the devil's holding it lol. Rosary will start from neck of tee as if actually being worn. Other hand will be dropping smaller diamonds. (I want to avoid bigger diamonds and cartoon diamonds, because of DS co.). Don't know how far down the tee and how many. Any other ideas for obvious/flashy status symbols? Was thinking of cash but that may look sort of cheap/not as appealing as diamonds from far away. The appeal of the diamond is that there pretty much a universal symbol for success, and would allow wearer to catch others attention, and have ppl pay attention to the graphic/shirt. Maybe just a bunch of status symbols being dropped by hand two (car keys, watch, one diamond lol, money, gold, etc..) Thinking of writing "At what cost" on the back in Latin.

Variation 2 (The trade) - Still not 100% on this one could go a couple of different ways, but the main idea would be a human hand(s) coming from one side of the tee and demonic hand(s) coming from other with action taking place in the middle. Idea one is to have demonic hand handing human hand a check. On which I could write some stuff that would communicate the overall metaphor more clearly.

Variation 3 (The Marriage) - Same as two except demonic hand puts diamond ring on human finger. "At what cost" on the back in Latin.

Naaa not yet wanna get those to you guys real soon tho. I'm a perfectionist so I'd like for you guys to get the full affect, but fxck it I might just post a couple of the designs up once my boy does his thing in photoshop he's dumb nice so you and me both would get to see what they look like on actual shirts. Ok back to picking these winners lol.

Do you have an audience ? Do you know who you're trying to sell too ? Do you have followers on social media and people keepin up with your stuff? You can't just throw your shit in the air and expect people to randomly flock to it (unless its really good) and even if it is thats still hard, just remember some of the best shit goes un-noticed if you have trouble marketing to your audience

thank you, both of you. 
I have a decent following but most are people saying they will cop but never do. 

as for the tank tops, I had them sent to the printer the first week of July but it took over a month to print. 

I appreciate the words and will definitely take this into consideration. I will work on my marketing and keep producing shit I love and support. 

I'll keep working because I love this shit. you'll see.
