Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Nov 15, 2013 @ 05:06
                                                                                                           Hi All, I've been working on my line for the past 5months. My main focus has been creating designs and less time on a brand name or logo. After extensive research i've realized there is much more to a clothing line than just creating a couple of designs and printing(although this part isnt easy). Among other things, i've geared my focus on a logo and brand identifty. Most designs i've created are inspired by what i see on a daily working in downtown LA and hours i spend in traffic. So i thought the name "Seedy District" not only fit with the design concepts but also is something that people outside of my circle of friends and family can relate to. Above is a logo i've been stuck on. here's the thought behind the logo "It's a symbol for converging paths. With the idea that it's not where you start but where you finish. Lifes a journey, dont let early on struggles or adversities hinder your dreams and opportunities for success." Any feedback and opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

I'll take it down. My intention was not to offend anyone, I was getting a feel for the tee. I'm working on making tees from old signs from that era. It is part of american history, and that's something we can't change. My thoughts derive from the term never forget. I would say most people in america are salves to corporations. We the new slaves.

Also a grown ass man is someone who believes he is a man but is actually a childish boy. Someone who think they have their life together but doesn't.
I didn't see the design but wanted to chime in on the "new slaves" concept. Just because Kanye says / thinks something doesn't make it a fact. You should form your own opinions, thoughts and creative voice; especially if you are just starting out. (This is coming from a Kanye fan btw.)

The play on Northface is clever, but personally it's not something i would buy.

I'm feeling the ODB ghost but I recommend a different sleeve design or just removing it all together. And moving the pic to the front of the shirt.

Please be aware cut & sewn is when you create apparel from SCRATCH- draping, pattern drafting, sourcing fabric and notions, piecing them together with a sewing machine and/serger, etc. Turn around for cut & sewn apparel can average 4-12 weeks depending on how detailed the collection is and where it is being shipped from. What your doing is modifying preexisting apparel. Done much in the same way as simply printing images on blank apparel. It's nothing new. If you wish to go this route I advise you to look into your competition and stay away from trends unless you come up with an awesome way to change them for the better.

Also, "luxury" products i'm sure is not going to be your market in the end. Please review luxury brands history and their product and manufacturing methods before embarking into this market. What makes them luxury is the highest quality fabric and production methods used for their garments. Generally fabric that is custom(in their own factory or have a contract with textile factory) made and not found online or at Joann Fabrics. Meaning it could cost $60 for just 1/2 a yard of fabric for a top that requires 1 3/4's of it. Calculate what they might have to retail it for to make a profit. if your in the $300 range that's still low. Those are their type of customers who IMO have an 8% chance of hanging out on Hypebeast. They regularly spend $300-$600 on single tops and over $1k for 1 pair of shoes.

Also, the name "create" sounds like a hobby shop or possibly a toy company. I'm not saying change the name, but you'll have to have a very strong logo/word mark and of course good products to sell your company.

Each member had a different style that came together to create something completely unique similar to the different positions of a baseball team coming together for a winning team.

The collection will consist of 2 pieces: the "Home Jersey" inspired by the hometown New York Yankees pinstripe jerseys and the "Batting Practice" baseball 3/4 sleeve shirt. Both orders will come a commemorative line up card, highlighting each members personal statistics (solo albums, achievements, etc.)

The designs below are obviously still rough drafts, so I'd like to hear some opinions. Release date is TBA.
Anyone else want to provide some honest feedback on this?

I know the mockups were done quickly to make the announcement on the anniversary so I'm more interested in the concept and hypothetical design. Thanks

Do something DIFFERENT and NEW. None of this is interesting. Nothing wrong with your mock up. You displayed your designs just fine. It's just a boring concept that looks 95% just like the picture you posted from back then. Look at what they done this month and previous years to get ideas.
