COME CHECKOUT OUR BRAND AT WWW.CAMPLIFECLOTHING.COM, WE ARE JUST STARTING AND HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR A SOLID YEAR. WE'VE SEEN SUCCESS FROM HAND TO HAND SALES AS WELL AS VENDORING EVENTS. WE'RE TRYING TO GET IN SOME RETAIL STORES AT THIS POINT BUT TRUST WE ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE RULES OR TRYING TO FOLLOW ANY OTHER TRENDS BESIDES THE ONES WE CREATE.
"WE DON'T FOLLOW THE LEAD, WE LEAD THE FOLLOWING"
"YOU DO FOLLOW THE LEAD, AND ARE UNORIGINAL." I mean sorry to be harsh, but honestly, you have no right to say you are "not following the rules" or "not trying to follow trends" when you clearly use the most overused and tasteless trend: Matching Clothing With Jordans & Other Sneakers. It's astonishing to hear that you've had so much success, when these designs are just really bad to be honest. There is literally no concept I see in this brand other than it having to do with sneakers. Let me list out my problems I have with your brand.
1. The Name. Unless you're referring to camping out in line for sneakers or something, then your name is totally irrelevant to anything. I'd highly recommend choosing a new name and instantly removing "clothing" from your name. No brand should have to add "clothing," "apparel," or "co." to their name to make people realize they are in fact buying clothing. It just looks really tacky and generic.
2. The Actual Clothing. Let me start off by asking, where is the actual design? I've now been on your website and see no real designs that are relevant. I see a purple drank design, shoe lace design, and then a whole bunch of over branded shit. I would not say that unless it were true. Nobody wants to buy clothing with logos all over from some brand they don't even know. Not to mention $32 for a damn tee!!!??!? What?!!?! I personally know that brands like Supreme, Stussy, hell even Diamond sell tees for $32. What can justify your price for you? Unless your tees are made in the U.S. with like pima cotton, then I'll apologize for that, but honestly nobody wants to pay that much for an unknown brand. The overall scheme of the designs seems sloppy, disorganized, and done in 5 minutes.
3. Your Claims/Statements. Please don't lie. You do follow trends and probably more than any other brand on this forum so far. I used to work on a clothing brand actually, but decided to stop since I wanted to focus on the design and art more, not the money. Don't make a brand to just say you have one or think you can just walk into this industry overnight and make a living. It is disrespectful to the culture and I personally feel it makes other's hard work seem under valued.
To be honest, I wasn't personally trying to go after you and your brand, but these are my OPINIONS on your brand and I think you can change a whole lot. You are not the first brand to do shit like this and here on this forum, but I'm just tired of always seeing this stuff posted all over the forums. I've left this forum and hypebeast for months now. I really hate the direction people are taking brands into these days. Thank you for your time. I hope you take this as constructive criticism and not just a rant for your brand.
