New line just launched. Second line. Tell me what you guys think

www.ThreadsPremium.com


Branding is forgettable, designs are lacking. Mickey mouse hands are so overdone. And really, threads premium? Honestly, I would change that name.

And why is your site being hosted on a dropbox demo?

Also, you are charging too much for poor designs and probably not great quality. Do you even have your own tags? In addition, the purpose of a lookbook is to see people wearing the clothes not seeing them on the fence in your backyard.
Honestly, I would really reconsider where you want to take this.


not bad, logo is fine...quality of blank look up to par with the standard...ive seen many lookbooks that have no model..( im sure you have too) so thats no big deal at all.

according to other "designers" mickey hands where supposed to be overdone about 5 years ago....the consumer will disagree with that! I can post some pics if you would like!

nothing to reconsider.....keep building!

good luck!


Thanks man. Really appreciate it. and for everybody saying the quality is lacking it is printed on the highest quality wholesale items available to us and the tags had not been put on when the photos were taken. Now all of our own tags have been put on.

Is it required to have wash care instructions on t-shirts when you sell them via online?

Where do you go to get your own labels made to sew into shirts? And the small little flaps for the side of chest pockets?

fullout (adv) - in a manner done with as much effort as possible

fulloutclothing is a clothing line born from and continuously inspired by the Bay Area hip hop dance community. We set out to create a unifying brand for all dancers and have been met with great response throughout the country. While our products are undeniably dance-related, we hope to push everyone to go fullout in everything that they do, because the lessons that we have learned from dance can be applied to all aspects of life.

Here's my ABOUT page.

To put it short, MMVIII is inspired by Japanese culture and my personal experiences living in Victoria/Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Taking my family roots into the brand, the logo is called “Mokkou” which is my Japanese family crest.

here is a pic of an airgun tee done in the last year or so....welll past the...so called....expiration date of this style of design.

it has done very well....by that, i mean that people bought it..alot!
at the end of the day....you want people to buy your tees.

im not saying that everyone should use this style......but if you do, only the mass consumer can determine what is played out! (again....other start up "designers" are the worst people to come to for design advice!)


crooks and castles can do whatever they want. there a huge brand, people will buy there shit no matter what.
So your saying, since crooks and castles did it, everyone should go ahead and stylebite and rework a design that's been used over and over again?

i don't think that's what he means at all. as we all i have heard numerous times "nothing is new under the sun". if a certain design works, it works...there has to be a reason behind why it's so successful after so many uses... i would just say make sure it's done in a creative way and not because of the success it has from the past/other companies. to me, a good design is making something familiar, unfamiliar

yeah i agree, i just think more people need to stay away from trends and style biting. its just annoying, and there is so much of it on this forum.

^ that is used in a different and creative away, and they pulled it off. but i think the way threads used it was just poor and lacking. just my opinion.

At the end of the day is all about making money, so I see why you would do the whole mickey hands shit... What I don't understand is who is buying them? Why would someone buy a shirt when you know the idea was taken from another brand?

thats a good point...and something that all of the people starting a brand needs to realize....

first...this thing has been done a million times..along with tons of other graphic styles, fonts, colorways, images...everything. if it works in a design....then it just works!

in my experience...80% of consumers are not really into a particular brand ( the history,past lines, who started what,) ..which is really good when it comes to independent lines...opens up the door for everyone in here!

i actually love this...because most consumers come into a store and buy a tee simply because they like it!

you also have the people that come in looking for a particular brand, want to feel connected with the lifestyle of a brand, and will buy whatever they print for the most part.........

Listen....most of the people that buy tees are not hypebeast....think outside of yourself, your friends, your favorite blog, your favorite brand/store!

for example....Sneaktip!...who is buying that?...no one i know...its not featured on hypebeast, not in my favorite streetwear boutique....but if i were to tell you their stockist, and revenue, you would be shocked because they don't fit into your circle of acknowledgement ( you don't like them, so you cant believe that anybody likes them)

be more about your business....once you start your brand...you are on the other side now! stop thinking like a fanboy.

yeh..crooks is huge and people will buy because its crooks......but here is a fairly new brand that did it..and also sold a ton!

if it is wack and overdone...then the brand should not matter. dont defend crooks..or rocksmith, or the other 20 big name brands that use this...then try to discredit an unknown brand that does it!

if Crooks does it...its to sell shirts! when Rocksmith did it....it was to sell shirts!...but u got no prob with that!

at some point, you may be interested in other aspects of the grind.

i was at the ground level...made alot of mistakes, took alot of growth and experience to understand some things....i was just saying that ..at the ground level, some things are more priority...like loving what you do..and making solid designs.

but after that, you are going to want to infuse your brand into the market and make some sales...but you may agree with me that, some people are still working on making solid designs.

But seriously, do you actually have a brand currently or do you have something you can show us? Or are you just on here to try to help us young people be successful? I am very fascinated by your experience.

i posted a few pics of a couple of designs i did with nike back in 08....done alot since then, and before then.....i really dont want to go into all the details.

i only began to post in here because a saw some misinformation and misguidance. the game changed ALOT since small boutiques and limited quantities. ( things were exclusive back then because of necessity!...we didn't have money, and could only get a few local boutiques to carry the brands.)

now there are super webstores and the market has expanded to millions of consumers that buy independent brands.

you may not remember.... but when the popular brands first started, most of the target market was still wearing stuff from Macy's and buying from larger corp. brands.....now a much larger % of the target market shops in independent brands...and they vary from "established brand purist" to " kid looking for a tee to match sneakers" to " newbie just looking for a cool shirt"

..so i know that i haven't given you enough of my credentials for you to take my word...i don't want you to take my word for it....just see if it makes sense and decide for yourself.

by posting other tees with mickey mouse hands, your just proving my point.
it's overdone, a lot of brands use it, it can be used well if you use it in a creative way.
