For me it wouldn't really have anything to do with being new. There are tons of companies that say they are 10 years old but they came out in 2012 but anyway. If their stuff is nice, I don't care if they came out yesterday.

If I had a company (which my buddy does and I help him out) I would be in the 20-22 range because I probably didn't spend the marketing money to go higher. If I had campaigns, a team and all that going, of course I would be higher to cover that cost.

For instance, I had a golf company and my stuff was priced at 149.99 (and I marketed huge) because there was no way anyone would buy my stuff except for my cult following for 229.99.

All in all, you're still making a good profit retail at the 20-22 and a very small one wholesale. Goodluck!

alot of brands start off low like $12 then people cop more cuz theyre cheap. then once they develop a following and have more designs they can steadily raise the price

be careful what you pretend to be

Pricing your product under $20 says a lot about your company. You may want to charge $10-$15 (or just above cost) for close friends or prominent people in your community who will be walking advertisements. Otherwise $25 is a reasonable price for a tee shirt with an original design and its own neck tag.*

*Many small businesses try to sell their shirts with the Guildan or American Apparel tags still inside the neck - DO NOT DO MAKE THIS MISTAKE. It is important to have a sense of urgency but once you cross the line to desperation, you have lost. Think of it like selling a car: shampoo the interior, install a new soundsystem and you increase the value. That extra couple of dollars you spend on custom tags and a seamstress will up the value of your product by $5 at least.

This is it! Don't go below 20 - I'd say stay around 25 to start out with..Definitely. Sell to friends cheaper but GEN POP 25 and up if you want people to respect your brand. We're talking about t shirts here..

Wouldn't go any higher than $30 if it's a brand new company. I'd be expecting to pay around $20 - $25 though.

anything under 20 or 18 would make me consider quality. it would seem like a desperate attempt to sell shirts.

You have to think about a couple of factors:

>Material - is it cheap? - is it a rare fabric -? what's fabric made from?
>Origin of the brand - what's there values? - have they just started? - does it appeal to you?
>Labour - is it mass produced? - is it done by a small out sourced sewists factory?

For me I like to understand the brand and know who the brand are before I evaluate the price of a piece of clothing.

Some brands will charge a deliberate expensive amount of money to fool the consumer into thinking the garment is of good quality. A practice that is in full swing at the moment.

Ultimately it boils down to your understanding of the product and whether that justifies the price and also whether you like the product enough to buy it in the first place.

for me price doesnt really come into the equation when buying a product if i like a garment enough i will save up for it. thats to say the garment is really expensive.

i'd say most people however will justify value for money and what brand has designed it.
