This is my 4th line, but just started last August.
I got a thread in the fashion brand section, but thought I'd just introduce MMVIII here since I'm also just another student doing this for fun.

I'd be happy to answer your questions, feedback, comment, etc. Thanks.


ive seen a few brands use that mokkou symbol, dope stuff though. i like the steak print, is it screenprinted with plastisol ink?


I've only seen 1 shirt with that specific symbol since we started using it in 2007. It's actually my family crest.
Thanks man, ya just standard silkscreen print.

I agree,

Those tees are def played now, but I bet they'll come out with some minnie mouse hands for chicks and they'll be all over it too! I know I would lol.

But I have my own Brand Dirty Razkal.com which I feel is WAY better, because we focus on detail and t-shirt quality first.

Some good shit in here! Mickey Hands are so 2010-11. Let's move on people.

"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.
/done" - Jake

it may prove that it's overdone....but also proves that is not done.

Sup HB fam...I'm with a street team for LoveMoney, and LMC is a relatively new brand based in Boston, MA. They just launched a new site and a few new drops. The company name is about loving what you do and the having the money (fame, etc.) come later (money follows love), so they have a blog and tees in that theme. They been at it since 2010 (sold out of Bodega and Green Street Vault, along with others), but this is the new stuff they just released. Love to have a chance to build. Peace HB!

jees.. i feel like i've seen all of this somewhere before
i dont know if its a rip or not, but one looks very similary to

People derive inspiration from different places. Sometimes people look at things and don't subconsciously know that they're doing something similar to something they saw. A lot of street wear is about jacking any ways all the big brands do it, weather you know the reference or not. Its all on how you flip it that counts. I personally like the first 2 tees.

im not really sure what you are trying to say, but if your saying that streetwear is based off of styling byting from the bigger brands, i'm going to have to disagree. a lot of brands on hear do try to jack what the big brands do, and theres a reason why they are at the level they are at, they fall into the shadows of the big brands.

but definitely, people do get lost on the thin line between inspiration and ripping. though, a lot of people do it purposely and think they can get away with it.
if your using public domains thats okay, but blatant ripping isnt.

This is a good watch for ALL OF US

Inspired me knowing that even the big names started off doing 24-36 prints @ a time and didn't jump on wasting money and dead inventory with 100pc prints.
Same thing I do.

Well lets take C&C for example they take high end logos and flip them. Im not saying that 100% of brands do it or do it all the time. But if you remember Stussy did a lot of that back in the day. But yeah straight biting without actually taking the time to do something creative or some what innovative is shit.

I see people talking about Mickey hands being played out and all that. My view on it is to an extent it is, but it really does depend on what you do with it, and how you use it.

Floral, pendelton, and camo print are played out...but they're still being used and capitalized on BIG time right? Yes, and that's because of how well they're being incorporated into the design (and which company is doing the incorporating!).

It really does come down to the customer. If the people like it, then they'll buy it. That is after all, what matters, because what is a company without any happy customers?

And speaking of mickey hands and being played out...Im releasing my design that utilizes that mickey concept on thursday. Ive released one before and it sold out within a week (this was late last year). This one is on track to be sold out just as fast. People love it, and Im stoked about it lol.



Bottom line...i think it comes out to how well you utilize the concept.

Much respect.. I don't know what that guy is talking about, but I can assure people that these guys didn't deliberately ape any style. Here are their past releases, to show the diversity:

Looks like a clean design. I don't understand what direction it's going but for a first timer with the tablet you have some potential.

If i may ask which Wacom tablet did you pick up. Been thinking of getting one myself so I can stop paying someone else to finalize my designs.

Bit too plain for a brand that's just starting out, also fonts look like they're straight from dafont.
Not too bad for just starting out though.
