I'm launching a clothing line soon and would like some feedback on tips from previous experiences people have had.

don't produce large quantities of garments you're not 100% sure you can sell

What seems to be the recent trend is to start up a brand copying other brands
don't do it, please don't do it
Good luck op

Unless you have major financial backing, high social status, or not, and just don't mind not making money for yourself for the next 5 years while working extremely hard. I wouldn't.

THIS

Your shit won't be popular so produce in super tiny batches. As you see sales go up either restock or make more of new products.

as a cliche as it sounds. DO NOT give up. Bad shit will happen but don't give into it

cosign on this one....its ridiculous to start a brand and your first season is loaded with tees, hats, hoodies etc...not to mention the graphics may be lacking .. that's not smart at all If your starting a brand the practices I've seen have been new brands releasing 1 or 2 really, really strong graphics..and not just your logo, or a witty phrase or words..be creative

Thanks for the advice, for my last release I made 36 shirts and I sold them pretty quick. I don't know if I was lucky or if the pace will keep going the same.
