"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" (...).

1. The Name. (...) 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 (...)

3. Your Claims/Statements. (...) work seem under valued.

To be honest, (...) brand.
If it's your opinion, I would stay away from saying "Nobody wants..." and say "I don't want..."
The point was that you understood my criticism, not grammar technicalities, but I do understand what you mean. I guess I really meant, "I personally would not want to buy clothing with logos all over from some brand they don't even know." and so on with other statements.

We'll let me start off by saying that your critcism is an opinion but yet not a valued one in our opinion.
First of far most the lets's start off with the name that you deemed unoriginal and generic. Camplife is acronym for Culture Always Makes-it's Prescence in LIFE. So trust that there were thought processes in the name and not just throwing a name on shirts and trying to sqwander it.

Second we're not trying to match T-shirts with jordans, matter of fact that is the total opposite of what we do. we are a culture brand that is trying to speak to all walks life so granted it being those who enjoy the purple drink or people who loves sneakers,etc,etc we are a brand that going to attach itself to all walks of life not just one lane. So if you came to look for over done shirts with medusa heads and and cathedral halls or floral print and all then indeed we're not the brand for your liking.

Branding is the soul purpose of putting your name on shirts, so that was dumb assement in itself. Company such as diamond,stussy or obey have seen major success of the simplicity of just branding.That is the most important to a start up brand, is to make sure the line has an identity.

WE DON'T FOLLOW THE RULES, because if we indeed did everything that everyone else is doing or for the sake of making a "quick buck" we would follow the trend of what everyone else is doing, but we refuse to do so, we're using our own mascot and have all original designs and more to come. Noe of the designs were rushed, we just enjoy simplicity over extreme, fyi the guy that does our designs, designed for Brisk, Absolute Vodka and other big companies so please with the designs being rushed.

I've seen alot of brands with rushed work with little to no effort involved out there and we refuse to do what everyone else is doing, so to say that we don't put thought process in our designs is insulting. We've sold out of every shirt we have ever dropped becuase of the quality of the shirts which ARE pima cotton shirts. I hate where brand are going these days to my friend but trust and believe nothing at Camplife is rushed or done without extreme consideration or thought. We usually don't respond with such post but you seem to have attacked our brand with frustration of other brands or failed attempts of your own but we do value your opinion but that my friend wasn't constructive it was an attack.

Peace
@Camplife

Yikes

Y'all make Karmaloop tier designs but you say this : "WE DON'T FOLLOW THE LEAD, WE LEAD THE FOLLOWING"

Don't post if you don't want people analyzing and picking apart your "brand"

If you feel you don't need the feedback given then just don't post and continue doing what you want to do

Don't take criticism so personal

I have given up on this forum. 

If you all really want to learn, look through this forum before posting your half thought out designs. In reality there are thousands upon thousands of brands out there. The majority of the ones that have been started and the ones that are posting in this forum will not be successful for a multitude of different reasons. I am not sure most of you understand the gravity of starting something that could last a life time. Something that is beyond screen printing and embroidery. Something that will eventually involve other people, an audience, and a real product line. I highly suggest you all rethink starting a brand, it is in itself one of the most time consuming and difficult things to do when the competition is endless and funds are limited. I am sure that several of the people associate with this forum claim to own a "clothing brand," yet few of you will ever see production of real clothing. That is the hard truth of all of this. All I am saying is that you need to actually have a plan before you start.

Not everyone will read this or think it is helpful, those people are either over confident or already know what I am talking about.  

On a side note: If you think you can do it, have fun with it, try to be original and make a product that you are proud of. 

Good luck everyone, I am unsubscribing from the forum, I may post randomly as Know Nothing moves on to a new chapter with our Fall //014 line of Cut and Sew products.

some lines like Comme Des Garcons have an entire story behind their lines.
But some people might like lines that are just about the graphics.
But there are cult followings, that strong lines like Burma and DPI keep because of their storylines
A strong storyline means a strong campaign.
Without a plot to your line, true streetwear enthusiasts and creatives will be able to sniff it out.
In turn less people that really care about the substance of what their wearing will show up. Which is cool too.
But if you create a true plot behind your line or brand. You'll see true artists support you're work. It'll grow a lot faster.
It'll grow in a more organic way where you can throw events and people will show up and show love because they like the meaning behind the line and not just the actual garments.
Mainly because the story or purpose has them hooked. Sometimes there has to be a plot. Some would argue that it doesnt.
But lines like Bape, Supreme, Comme, etc. stood the test of time because of the
characters, storylines of their pieces, and overall aesthetics. All of these elements speak towards the plot.
Some would argue that you need to have
a reason to continue a line/brand. A purpose. Or a story to tell. Through visuals, mixes, events, and overall designs. An overall aesthetic or feel if you will.
Because truthfully creating, let alone continuing on with a line is really not the easiest thing to do.
And we think alot of people would agree with that. Brand owners & customers.

What are the story lines from DPI and Burma? I kinda see Burma, but not at all DPI. You make a good point, but people shouldn't make a legit story just from tee shirts. You have to expand and be able to make more then one article of clothing for more people to be attracted to your brand.

Hey! Check out our first collection with limited and hand numbered tees, perfect for the summer! the tees are running fast due to the low number of tees. Free worldwide shipping, have a great day you all! http://threadsoftheo.co/




Alright, I am going to give my honest opinion on these shirts. I feel that the first floral tee is clean, but floral is so overplayed right now that it makes this tee fairly unexciting. 

I do however like your geometry animals (the swan and the elephant), they're pretty cool! One question, what is that material of the last shirt? I understand it is cotton, but I like all those different coloured speckles.

Hi Jordan Lake, glad you like it! The speckled shirt is 96% Cotton and 4% Polyester, i'm not 100% sure but i think the coloured dots are the 4% polyester! smile

We got to team up with NYC based artist Death Traitors/Alexander Heir to release this tee. If you guys remember we released a small capsule based on the Mexican Revolution going on in Chiapas, Mexico. For this tee, all the profits will be donated to Schools For Chiapas. Were also throwing in an extra random tee with each pre-order (while supplies last) 

Also recently on May 2, 2014, paramilitaries murdered the Zapatista teacher Galeano as he rushed to defend the school and health clinic in La Realidad. Their trying to raise money to help rebuild the autonomous school and health clinic. This is where we'll be donating the money since its where its most needed at the moment. You can check more info on their actual website here (even donate) or you could read the description on the collab tee here.

We were also able to revamp our website, and currently working on releasing our summer collection. Some of the random tees that we'll be throwing in with this pre-order will include some stuff from summer. 

Alexander Heir was also kind enough to mention the collab in his interview on Pitchfork that you can read here.

To order visit the website here: http://therawtencompany.com/

For those of you posting pictures of your t-shirts, what software do you guys normally use? PS? And what do you think the best way of making them, outside company, buying a shirt printer? I like the BRK designs, the logo is clean, what did you use to make the logo?

Thanks in advance

Pocket tees are fine if you actually make the entire shirt, not just sew a pocket on a blank tee.

Anybody know about this new brand Assembly out of LA? there website is ass3mbly.bigcartel.com and they have been sold out for months. Just copped a shirt, they are pretty cool, but I'm wondering why there is so much hype behind this brand as I never see it pop up much anywhere, but they have a HUGE following on Instagram. There handle is @ass3mbly and they have 22k. I guess they are big in LA and some celebs wear it, but it is strange how much hype it has on instagram and its website but not many other places. Can anyone explain this to me? Thanks.
