Would you wear a shirt with the word ”death” on it?

July 30, 2012 @ 22:00:36
I'm starting my own clothing brand and the name I am considering for it consists of two words. One of the words is "death," the other word is not at all threatening. I am concerned that the name could turn away many customers who may feel uncomfortable having the word "death" on a shirt. Along with the name, my artwork will be printed on this shirt. My art is generally aggressive imagery.

Would you wear a shirt with such a brand name on it?

Probably

July 31, 2012 @ 07:02:02
Nope, my shit stays positive.

If it had a meaning or maybe something on the back so its not so weird.
July 31, 2012 @ 07:10:10

Yeah. it has much meaning which is the main reason that I am still considering.
Would you?

'40s-'50s fighter plane style art with 'death'? yes. skulls, pin-ups, screaming sharks, that sort of stuff, hot rod essentials. metal/hardcore/thrash band tee inspired? yes, think Pushead style, zombies, dark lords, baphomets, inverted pentagrams. brand would have to be "'bout dat life' too. if you're some simple hipster/hiphopster putting death and inverted crosses and shit, you're only selling to your friends and those like you. however, that hipster element is huge, and a pabst black death tee with a grim reaper and some inverted crosses would sell a lot of tees.

not really my style unless it's used in an ironic sort of way.

That's immediately what I thought of when I saw this thread.

props to starting a brand but seriously brands have been doing it for a while. Deathwish, Actual Pain, DropDead, CVLT nation, death traitors, and death in june. I don't know if you're going for a dystopia, satanic vibe with a scummy kind of wit then I'd probably wear it. But I'd just say do something that none of these brands have done.

Free country? I should fuck you up for saying that

why not? its part of life, and whats the concept behind it?
I don't want to get too specific until the brand actually launches, but basically the name is an old term that was used in the days of swords and shields and likewise my brand features imagery of warriors. The term has also been applied to running a business, so it fits fairly well in a clothing brand

Yeah, my designs are somewhat metal inspired. Not so much about the subjects you listed but I'll probably branch into those themes eventually.

I'm definitely doing different designs than what they are doing. I think I'll edit the thread later and add some of the types of images I create just to give a better picture of what the brand is about.

yeah
August 02, 2012 @ 10:43:37
No.
August 02, 2012 @ 23:37:28
I would.

But if you get into that teen rebel, anti-everything, satanic/occult bs then no.

August 04, 2012 @ 16:46:05
no, just like how I dont wear black scale or whatever or OF because of the upside down cross, the pentagram, and the 666. I don't like any of that "it's cool to praise satan" bullshit nowadays
August 05, 2012 @ 03:50:31
People are pussies.
I will wear whatever I like, regardless of what others think or whom it offends.

I have multiple shirts with "fuck" on them.
I have a few shirts that have "death" on them.
