Does anyone know any good sources as far as hat manufacturers in USA, mainly 5 panels, I have searched and searched again but nothing really solid. I've noticed RipnDip and ONLY NY use the same manufacturer it be nice to know where their source..

no need for the hate.

If people like it, thats all good but I cannot tell you how many tees/crews I've seen that have a leopard print pocket.
Plus, its another one of those passing trends that someone came up with that was cool but now we have a huge abundance of people who buy hanes crews and some fabric and sew it on there with no knowledge of the craftsmanship that actually goes into garment.
All I'm saying is that its nothing new or original and there was not skill nor creativity to craft this 'brand' but if people cop, good for the owner.
Theres my reason for the hate and heavy sarcasm.

im sure you guys are familiar with Only NY...a fairly new brand...i remember when they started with a few simple tees...nothing really new, groundbreaking or really creative! i was not a fan.

they went for it, and made a pretty successful brand for themselves, reached a level that im sure all up coming brands would love to experience. Im not sure what my crit of these tees would have been.....but it would be irrelevant, because they found a market for it and found success.

ONLY NY is successful in my opinion because they have outstanding quality and manufacturing. Their stuff is simple, yes, but all the materials they use for hats/hoodies are very detailed and of the utmost quality. Another thing I want to point out about ONLY NY is that the co-owner and designer Micah HAND-DRAWS all their fonts/designs from scratch. Their shit is clean and simple but WITH amazing color palletes, something most people think they can manage, but really can't.

And thats the reality folks.

here is another example.

this tee is unoriginal, uncreative, and im not a fan of it. If it were posted here first to receive a crit, im sure ( based on what most people on here already say) the response would be , not to print it!

they did, and received an amazing level of success also, and a huge stockist.

once they found the target market, they were able to excel....despite me and you not liking it!

no matter how much you "LIKE"...or dislike a design/brand......the only real indication of whether it is good or bad....is the sale of it!

ive had many tee designs that i like more than others.....but the true test of its success is always the consumer.

thats the reality folks!

this really does not hold tru for most.......if you have an design that is nothing really new, groundbreaking or really creative....throw it on a cut and sew tee and make a great color palette....would you suggest that?

I really don't think you can compare Only and La Poche. Only's product is some the the original and new designs there are. They don't follow trends, they make what they honestly like and hope that other people feel the same. In addition, you chose two of their very new tees and very simple tees. Yes they are just fonts on a cotton t shirt but they still follow along with the Only theme and lifestyle. With La Poche, they are merely just following a trend, right now dark tees with contrasting pockets, usually some kind of animal print are 'in', they are trendy and people who don't know what they like that buy stuff from any passing trend will buy these. Sure, that is fine and good but these two brands you are trying to compare are the utmost opposite. Only just yells 'creativity, craftsmanship, innovation'. La Poche yells 'follower, trendy'.
My point is that these two brands are doing very different things and frankly I think your arguments are very ridiculous.

You don't know that. Stop making stupid comparisons! Plus we would not criticize these because they are from Black Scale and they are original designs. Now, everyone is copying Black Scale's aesthetic so that is why we criticize they

not comparing the brands...just the points of the criticism!... the concept of creativity and innovation and trend following applies to EVERYONE! The LIN tee is clearly a trend following tee....lets not be biased here! it does not yell 'creativity, craftsmanship, innovation.....and frankly,you know that to say otherwise is very ridiculous!

Exactly my point chad.....bad design..is bad design...whether it is from Black scale or not! I know, that YOU know that this USA design in very unoriginal, has been done sooooooo many times...and is poorly executed. can you at least admit that?

That's the def. of a brand hore. No matter what they make weak or not they love it.
I some of black scales shit but not all of it.

I totally agree with you karakter1
And EVERY brand has followed some sort of trend sometime in their existence. Unless it is a completely hand drawn image then it will never be original.
You have to cater to who you want to sale to or you go the total opp. and make everything for everyone. No matter, if you sale even 1 shirt you have successes at finding a "market"
We in here are the minority and something tat I read in here really don't help anyone but the person who typed it.

Critique can be both harsh and helpful but when it's just "damn that shit is ugly GTFO" and "you company will never get anywhere" that just shows how truly negative one person can be.
Shit I would never wear some of the stuff Lady Gaga puts on but she has her own following and she loves what she does and I can't knock that one bit.

A font shirt is a font shirt no matter which way you cut and sew it.
Those font shirt made my ONLY. are simply and plain. Nothing makes them any greater then any other font shirt hand drawn or not. Nothing stands out and it's not anymore creative then any other font shirt. But someone will buy it because.

And I say that to say this. I could care less if the design is hand drawn or not. If it's wack it's wack.

And to be hoest when I creat my shirts I make something that I would wear. If not then I scarp it. I don't make create a shirt because it follows a trend. Some stuff I also scrap because it not "made for a shirt" but I only limit myself when I think this way. Graphics T's is a endless field.

You could be a dick on a shirt and someone will think it's sick as hell and buy it lol.

The field is big enough for everyone. Some will stand the test of time some won't

some are in for a quick buck and some are in it for the love.

You'll find out which ones they are in the end.

^ this.

the first question I asked myself when I got my printed samples, "would I wear this?" It seems common sense, but it's actually extremely important, that, and imagine your t-shirt, hoodie, whatever, right next to your favorite brand in a store display. Does it stand out, in a bad way? Commercial appeal versus just visual appeal.

Funny thing I don't even really buy shirts anymore at the store. If I do I know it's comething that I really want and love how it love how it looks.

Other then that I pretty much wear my own shirts. And make stuff for me to wear.
Working on Polos and cardigans too.
Only field I'm scared to step into is jackets.
Cut and Sew shirts I don't wear really so no need for my to make those at this point and time anyway.

You only let yourself down when you don't follow your own dreams and let someone else pull your strings.

I was messing around one day and made this shirt.

Simple and to the point. Some people will understand it some won't. Should I not show it off because someone might say it not original??
Well who else has made a shirt saying the same thing?
No one. So it is original.
Is it based off another idea?
What shirt isn't?



I have my creative stuff and I have my simple stuff. I dip my feet in both ponds.

Yup, your right. The reason why Blvck Scale can realase shit like this, they've branded them selvs in a way that their so popular, people don't give a fuck about the design. They just want to wear the label.

When I wear Supreme shirt, I don't give a fuck about the design, I wear it cause it's Supreme.

Not saying that they should do this, but that's what happens. Then theres brands that release good stuff, and people buy it cause they like the graphic. All depends on the target audience.
