I'm just 15, and yeah eBay and some online vintage shops are all that's left for us haha.
Word. And I appreciate that perspective and I don't think you should design for anybody other than yourself but on the other hand, I know you got good ideas and I just hope you don't end up sitting on piles of cotton because you weren't able to market the line properly/effectively. I definitely got that you're majorly influenced by RL and the Polo line and I'm glad you understand the history rather than are just jumping on the retro bandwagon. My design takes a lot of inspiration from retro aesthetics as well so I can certainly see that aspect of your design.
I guess this is probably one of the better brands to come from HB in a lil while but I still see room for improvement so Ima drop some feedback on ya.Honestly I understand what you mean. Yes some of the designs are somewhat bland, but at the end of the day I personally feel I don't design for people, I design for myself, if people like my stuff then, I appreciate it, if they don't it's totally cool too. I like minimal style, however I'm tired of the black and white trend, this is what I like and hope others may too. Now regarding the Polo Sport style, yes I did get a huge inspiration from Ralph Lauren, but that's why I created this brand, I'm younger than most people on here, so I missed out on the era of Polo Sport and Tommy Hilfiger sportswear clothes, I actually wanted to give others an opportunity to see that again and now. I'm glad to hear that we have potential, I'll keep working, and thanks for the feedback. I actually take feedback seriously, I think you had a lot of great points, and I'll definitely keep those in mind from now on. Thank you.
I think the first tee is incredibly lackluster especially for a first collection. As a start up line who is just trying to be known about, it is best to provide more options than you have now. I totally think this can be done with only three designs though but considering two out of the three say 'Apache' as the main focal point of the tee, I could see someone who's not too sold on the name not feeling like they have options and then forgetting the brand.
The second tee is dope while being very simple, depending on price I might actually cop black if this line ever comes to fruition.
For the hood, the Polo Sport logo has been ripped a lot recently and I knew you were gonna do that anyway because of your font choice for the logo. I think this design lacks much creativity. If this weren't a rip of a noteworthy logo, I don't think many people would find it very visually appealing. I guess people won't stop doing it though until one of you fools catches a C&D.
But good looks anyway, the line clearly has potential.
Out of curiosity, how old are you? I'm 17 so I missed out on much of the vintage stuff I rock now. I'm left to have to scour eBay and thrift stores for the Polo, Tommy, Nike, Champion etc.
I find it quite humorous that everyone is digging Apache so
much and half the other brands that are posting in the past few pages get a ton
of thumbs down. How does everyone hop on the Apache train so quick with
strictly mock ups? There hasn't been one legitimate product shot. Not only that
but are the designs really that intriguing to you guys? Iâm not trying to hate
on Apache but honestly three designs, two of which only say Apache in different
fonts, and then another that has some random globe-esque graphic really doesnât
impress me. Granted Iâm going to give you the benefit of the doubt that youâre
15 and your grinding man I donât want you to take this the wrong way and you
should keep it up. I just donât understand how designs like these with no
actual real product presentation can be getting a bunch of thumbs up and
positive feedback when nothing of substance has been accomplished with the brand.
It kind of tells me a few things about the HB community: 1. They are easily influenced
2. You can only take so much from the feedback for your brand because Hypebeast,
contrary to popular belief, doesnât know all 3. You could have a great brand
(see IISE or Divided Minds) and the little homies will find a way to hate it.
Just venting not trying to come at you Apache because youâve
got a start but I just find it funny that everyone hopped on the train so
quick, classic Hypebeast.
