Hey,

Just got my brand up on the Karmaloop Kazbah. I really try and make my brand stand out from a lot of the other brands that seem more interested in just doing whatevers trendy and not taking any chances on doing something more original. Anyways Id appreciate it if anyone wanted to check out my store over on the Kazbah and give me some feedback. Thanks!

Good work on getting on karmaloop. Personally, I would never put my brand on Karma, but thats just me.

If your looking for honest feedback, here it is:

Your brand doesn't project any real originality. You have a shirt that says 'Fresh Till Death'. How does that project even an ounce of originality? Overall, your graphics seem to cater to young teenagers. Not a bad thing if your catering to that market. I can't say I'm a fan. But then again, I'd consider my taste to be far more fashion forward then the 'average' consumer.

Good luck though.

$35 for a shirt that says fresh til' death is pretty steep. and like the above said, it lacks originality, especially when you go "against the grain."

I've always wondered, what are the advantages and disadvantages of being on Kazbah?

It seems you've put some solid hours into it.... but it still needs a lot of work. Like these other guys are pointing out; its lacking creativity and originality. Best of Luck.

Obviously an increase in overall coverage of your brand, which may lead to higher sales. Kazbah is a good idea for startups if they want to be noticed by the masses quicker and possibly get a spot on karmaloop thereafter. Personally, I dislike Karmaloop. Although it has brought streetwear to the mainstream it has kind of ruined it at the same time. Most of the brands I truely respect to this day are not on karmaloop.

Karmaloop has a very minimal amount of integrity, which is always negative in a culture based off limited apparel.. plus there online presentation is chips from there site layout to there model pics.. sus

That shirt was inspired by Lupe Fiasco's "The Cool", its about this hustler who comes back from the dead. In the song he says "He came back, in the same suit that he was buried in. Similar to the one his grandfather was married in. Yes, he was still fresh to death." So thats why I did the front with those words and if you look on the back you can see I did a skeleton hand coming up from the bottom with blood on it to represent the hustler in the song rising from the grave, so that was the whole theme behind that shirt. However, you're entitled to your own opinions.

Karmaloop is bittersweet. Great for starter brands but seeing big brands on karmaloop leaves a horrible taste in your mouth.

Thanks. My goal is to try and do cool concepts in my shirts that have some kind of theme or underlying meaning. As far as the design goes I was kinda going for a retro horror movie poster feel but maybe not everyone is in to that look. Either way thanks for the feedback.
