Calling your brand "_____ apparel" "_____ clothing" "_______ couture" or anything like that. and having shitty design in general.

this and add "supply co."
overdoing the whole industrial era workwear trend: oatmeal buttoned henleys, suspenders, baggy selvedge, beards, etc. looks lame everyone in bushwick knows you're not a blacksmith

kicks/clothing-focused shirts. specifically, anything with pictures of kicks, boasting about kicks/fitted cap/etc are fucking tacky and juvenile. there's that tiny sliver of sweet spot that can determine whether or not it's gonna be dope, but more often than not 90% are pretty shitty ideas. the same with women on shirts.

i'm glad they're out there though, because they make an example and i can easily avoid coming up with such shitty ideas.

its hard to tell what will be dope....with those type tees, particular customers will find it wack..some will love it! the key is to market those kind of tees to the people that will love it.

there is room for everyone.

making a shitty lookbook.its not hard to find a professional photographer and a nice looking model nowadays

**edit also shooting your lookbook with too much going on outside. I often find myself looking at the background more than i do the clothes.

My name is ASAC Schrader, and you can go fuck yourself.

Not to be the typical self promoting dbag but you all, really, should check out my brand. I purposely took the extra time when starting it to avoid the sh*t your talking about.

I'd have to say box logos and font types similar to supreme (originally Barbara Kruger), as well as the inverted cross being incorporated into the logo/shirt design (all too common, these days).

I hate brands that talk about quality and all that and charge a premium for it and then you find out they use fruit of the loom or gildan shirts and dont even remove the damn tags.

"Established 2011" etc. I don't think some people know what the word established means.
