So I'm starting my own line and I got my first samples in. First shirt is a cut and sewn. Site in the process.

here's just a sneak picture of me wearing around the samples for this week.



Floral trim. All products are made here in the usa on the east coast.


Cant believe no one has commented on this yet.. This is definitely the most legitimate thing going on in this thread. Excited to see the drop man. Im hoping to get into cut/sew tees myself.... curious what minimums are like with your manufacturer?

i think the floral trim is a pretty dope idea for a shirt..dont know if there is anything on the front or so but if it is just the floral trim..it looks so simple and clean!

Thanks guys. sits is going up this week. We have 2 trim shirts coming out on the first drop. Thinking of putting a patch down at the bottom of the shirt or not. Also shopping around for other manufacturers that could do this a little cheaper for what i'm paying now so if anyone knows a good sewing person that would like a big order please let me know.

Theres nothing great about it. Sure it looks nice but all he did was buy blanks and pay someone to sew a floral strip onto it. I don't think this really qualifies as cut and sew unless he got the whole shirt made from scratch which I highly doubt he did.

^ this.
Photo is blurry for one even for a sample or a candid. Can't even really tell the quality of the shirt or the part that you had sewn in.

what you guys think, our 4th batch now and we are selling pretty good :D









stuff like that looks really generic.. plus you're not even a high end brand yet so I'm not entirely sure why you're spitting clothing out with your company logo on top.

that goes for all starting companies btw.


Your comment makes no sense @ all.
Telling someone or a brand that they are not qualified to print their company name or logo on the front of a shirt or crewneck is not advice.

My friend and I are starting a streetwear brand. We are having a dispute about a motto. The motto I chose is a quote that is somewhat well known but has no attachment to it. No other brands use the quote and no 1 person is said to be the originator of the quote. My friend/partner doesn't want to use it because he says its not "original" I say its fine because it applies to our brand and most importantly our demographic. What do you guys think?

how do you expect anyone to give advice if they don't know what the phrase is?
and if your having a dispute like this and you can't come to agreement to the point you need to ask a public forum, your going to have a lot of trouble as you work more because there will be tons of things you both will have different opinions on.

Agreed. If you can't decide on a measly motto then how are going to agree on t shirt designs let alone branding in general.

Hello all,

I am looking to work with an individual who is serious about their clothing line, and has taken the steps to establish their line. I am a graphic designer, marketer, and someone willing to contribute as much time as possible in return for a job opportunity or compensation.

I have been wearing "streetwear" and trending clothing for awhile now, and have no problem with the designs many of these companies are trying to achieve.

My graphic design skills are very advanced in the sense that I have been using Photoshop for seven years. If anyone wants to give it a go, I will draw up something for your company with watermarks over it, and we can go from there.

I also handle social networking with regards to marketing. I can get your Youtube videos attention, and spread awareness to your company by getting you to the top pages of niche related searches. Managing tumblrs, facebooks, etc.

If I can assume a higher role in one of these companies then I would be glad to take that on.
Please don't ask me for a portfolio due to the fact these designs are outdated and completely unrelated. I feel as if you are entitled to your own specific design so that you can truly judge my skills.

Again, if anyone is serious and interested in working with me then email me at michaelmaturi@gmail.com
Thanks!

Have a solid idea of what your brand is going to be before posting. Identify what makes your brand unique..what are your beliefs? That question cannot be found from other ppl but yourself because it is your own brand; gg.

hey mike,

its pretty common for anyone working with a freelance designer to ask for a portfolio....if your designs are outdated and completely unrelated to streetwear...then make a portfolio of new, related work!

im sure that anyone interested would want to see a sample of your work before starting a custom piece.

I agree. If someone is going be hiring you they are going to want to see previous samples of your style, aesthetic and skills.

Just my 2 cents...rthapparel i think you need to remove the coming soon part for the crewnecks and hoodies i think why even show it if they cant buy it?..

Also TAKE music OFF ITS ANNOYING...to me when a website plays music i turn it off n 2 seconds...or i think where the fuck is that noise coming from and try to close the tab..

Stop with the coming soon all together..dont try to use the Very Limited gimmick any more i notice i see that alot with new people starting and they cant manage to sell their so called limited pieces....

Dont post the mockup design for you pre-view image when your selling...

make sure everythng flowes dont have a website called AKAcollectiveco but your bigcartel url says aka clothing?
