I feel like your designs lack originality. Just another Black Scale rip off brand. Also, how the heck do you make ANY money if you sell your shirts for so cheap?
they have been out for a while already, just trying to move product. thanks for the input

http://www.skillshare.com/classes/fashion/A-Staple-of-Branding-How-to-Start-Your-Fashion-Company/915436837/projectsohhhh i understand now .. im going to look more into it,  it looks fun. lot of the projects that im looking at look like well (structured) brands im sure i could learn a lot. thanks. 
Suggest you just take both classes. For the price it's the best advice and knowledge you're going to get, unless you have a homie/mentor who can help you with a ton of knowledge. The first class was sick and getting top 10 was worth it for sure. Not going to enter the second contest, but there are a ton of more videos in the second class. You can still submit your brand for the second class to win a spot in Reed Space. It's worth the $20-30. 
So is Jeff doing the same thing this year with the contest and does that start now? I wasn't sure if the classes meant the contest is starting again.

So it has surprised me that nobody has done a collaboration with a brand from this forum, out of all the people that chat back and forth, tossing each other ideas and such I would expect that someone would do a collaboration. I see it as a great way to save a little money, and be able to release a product that each brand could benefit from in forms of exposure and product expansion. It is just an idea, thought about starting a new thread for it, but figured I'd test the idea with you all. 
Great idea you already know i support
This is a great Idea. Just so you know, I am from Indonesia. Production cost is so cheap here. Not as cheap as china though, but I guarantee the indonesian made is better in quality than chinese made. If anyone of you interested in making some business with me, contact me in private. You can see examples on my brand's website: http://applecoastindonesia.com/

With my first drop coming less than a month away, I was thinking, what if I add a "story/comic/zine" type of thing with each order?


I'm currently writing 3 different fictional stories and I think at least one of them will reach my target market. The story is a log record from a soldier after an apocalypse type of event has taken place. Like I said, I have a few more, so I can pick and choose which one to use.

I just think it will be a little extra as a way to connect with the buyer...

What y'all think? Good idea, bad idea, stupid??

So...you're not going to give the guy any advice or criticism, but you're gonna sell him one of your designs to use instead? I don't like being mean, but instead of selling your design to him, maybe you should hire someone to design stuff for you. 

Why?


If someone lacks skill in sketching there

really isn't any critique you can give them other than "hire someone to do

your designs" which was what I offered him. Me on the other hand although

not a professional went to school for design and spend a lot of time practicing as well as know how to draw. I just

offered a service like any other person who knows how to do something
would do.

And as for the comparison to black scale by the placement of a B...That's standard designing, no ripping or comparison on that one. Anybody can download the Pittsburgh Pirates font and put it on a shirt which is what Black Scale did. There is no "designing" to that.

@julioescala -- I can't draw for shit but I can write. This one is a sole survivor recalling the events of a chemical apocalypse. Not sure if I wanna go all zombie - that's how it started out - but def the same type of feel.


The other story is about a teen girl that can walk into anyone's dream and manipulate them. And now she has to face her dead mothers' nightmares.


And the last one, which is already written as a short script, is a new age take on the "newspaper from the future" idea. That one I wanted fi shoot and produce as a 12-16min short film, but fuck me if life gets too complicated sometimes...


PM me your email address and I'll hit you up.

I have brand new Alstyle Sweatshirt (1573) and T-shirt (1301) blanks that I don't want sitting around anymore.

In the box since I purchased, I would let them go for cost; I'm not trying to make money.

$13.50/ea for the Sweatshirts
$3.00/ea for the Shirts

Black color.

Let me know if you're interested and I can provide more information on numbers and sizes.

This is a good opportunity if you don't have an account with Alstyle.

Let me see...

I feel as though the baroque theme is mad played out already.
Also, the fonts don't look that great together & the "all things" portion looks really tacky. 
Another thing I wanted to mention is that you most likely do not have the right to print this image on anything.
Secondly, you found that image on the internet... and just smacked a box logo onto it. 

To make your brand stand out, you need to be genuinely creative; the exact opposite of this design. 

IMO, you should just scrap the design and try to create a drawing yourself, VIA adobe Illustrator or hand...

Well i appreciate your feed back and i don't know what you mean by baroque theme.that font is called Agre Sans NC  which looks like clean font to me and i guess i could adjust the all things but it's suppose to represent killing whatever you conquer'd. 

With regards to the picture I was told I couldn't be sued for using it because it's been duplicated and used several times already so it's a very slim  to NONE chance that i'm using the original picture that was panted. and the people who painted it are DEAD.  

& If you notice and look on karmloop  and even big HIGH END colthing lines like givenchy there taking vintage painting and throwing them on a shirt like virgin mary, last supper pictures, hell jay z was just rocking picture of picture of jesus dying.

& my ending point with that is they have zero concept and threw these image on a shirt and charge people an arm and a leg for them vs me i have a concept and meaning if you look at the bottom of it it says "Todays Yesterday Victory Tomorrow Yesterday Tomorrow's Conquest, and Tomorrow is Today's War.

Playing off @HWYS Zine idea, what if some of the brands on the forum threw in on a zine. We could showcase some of our Art/Clothing through a couple pages, and have our site or contact information so that people could find out more. We would have an open document (Google doc file or something of that nature) that we would all have access to editing, and once we where all finished each brand owner (or representative) Would print some copies, assemble them, and drop them off in their own local streetwear shops (or coffee shops, record store, hip places) Giving a unique showcase for all of us, and a chance to get some exposure in different places. Feel free to message me or keep this idea flowing on the thread.

Yes, thank you for focusing on how I was wrong with the art's genre and taking focus off of the real issue here. 

BUT anyways,

If black scale puts out a shirt with a painting on it, you're gonna go and put a painting on a shirt as well, correct? If this is your thought process on what you figure branding to be, then you might as well be printing shirts that say diamond on them & have Versace's medusa-head logo.

Well I read and done research already and from what I've read it's called Renaissance.
 But overall i'm just trying to bring you all to the light that these type of shirts do sell. and how my mine stands out different.

This guy line called Apparel Reserve which he did mona lisa http://www.apparelreserves.com/product/unconscious-crewneck  is making so much money to the point that he raised the price to $200

Hey Everyone, 
I know i haven't posted in a while but I wanted to share a new project me and a friend have started called the F.A.R. Collective. The site is a online magazine dedicated to Fashion Art, and providing tips to those entrepreneurs who are interested in starting their own clothing brand. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think. 
 http://thefarcollective.com/ 

We're hoping to feature some of the new brands in the forum and even review the products that you may have. 
Seems dope, definitely about to check it out.
