Heres some more pics...let me know what you guys think. Negative, positive, whatever.

















I think the style your aiming for is played out, the whole sweater-tumblr-photo has been overdone

What style do you think I'm aiming for?
That picture with the girl has been reblogged all over tumblr, but before that, i didnt see any designs like mine.
Im not aiming for any style, just doing what I think looks dope and releasing what the people like.

Nonetheless....i appreciate the feedback!

If anybody can find a reliable place with a small minimum to buy camp hats....thatd be dope, and HIGHLY appreciated. I searched all over the web and only found one place but there "minimum" was 500 pieces -_-.

Camp hats are the style of hats that you see Supreme throwing out now.

Thanks!

Not sure why, but I can really see this style taking off with the fixed gear community...don't ask me why and I'm probably wayyy off mark, but yeah it just feels "fixish" :D

nice stuff smile


Honesty that would be so dope to me, my dad runs a vintage roadbike/bike shop. and ive personally owned over a 100 bikes, so that culture has always been relevant in my life
but thank you for the kind words, much appreciated!

I've always felt that any new line should establish its own identity through images and messages before they just start printing their logo and name shirts as the only design. If the consumer doesn't understand the message of your brand, they won't be compelled to buy it. Just because it's cool in your head, or cool with you and your friends doesn't mean everyone else who have no idea what your brand is will understand.

I disagree, I hate when brands try to convince me about how they are different than other brands when they seem to be producing the same designs. The designs alone should be strong enough for the consumer to figure out what kind of brand they represent or they're trying to be.

I usually check up on this forum but finally opened an account. Honestly most of this stuff is alright, a good percentage of people on here are just haters though. If your brand looks like shit then I'm sure you will find out sooner or later but it seems like most people are starting up strong. Decent designs, couple first pieces, sewn in tags (shirt or hem) and good ideas. I think if you're trying to do this to just make a quick buck then it will reflect in your work. We've had our brand out for only a year now and started sewing in our own tags recently which is making our brand develop better as a whole. Overall, stay up everyone and Stay Divided!

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.



Its not generic, its a simple design with a good looking logo, and to not put our logo on
our product? are you stupid?


i'm sorry you can't take criticism, mate. designs like this are so overplayed, that's all. do you even know what generic means? if you can't take opinions I don't think you should even run a business.

Might want to see if you can inquire with Jeff Sheldon over @ Ugmonk. He's done an awesome job of integrating the BigCartel cart with Wordpress. He describes it as being a pretty giant task, but I'd think he'd be someone to ask for expertise on the matter.

Less curious about the commerce, and more curious about the actual posting? Alternatives to wordpress?
When I say integrated I mean not like blahblah.tumblr.com, but rather coded to be included within the website.

honestly, Jeff Sheldon is probably so busy he will never be able to get to your email. The best you can do is posting something on Mintees asking a developer about it or something.

I read the only place that sells New era snapbacks wholesale is New era themselves, and it still cost $19 a hat. Where would I buy them, or what other brands could are people using?

Nah. my printer/manufacturer sells blank new era snapbacks for around $4-5 depending on quantity. But of course you still have to pay for what gets stitched on there.

I would recommend checking out www.indietalk.com for some info on videography and such. You had a lot of off-focus shots and the shakiness of the camera was off putting. Maybe get a steadicam if you don't have one and you plan on continuing the video aspect of it.

Good luck to the brand!

Thanks for the feedback! But honestly we incorporated that element for effect. Nothing to do with purposefully shaking the camera. We are currently experimenting with different editing techniques that you will probably see in coming videos.

Cool.
