Hey guys my name is Jon Kruse and I am new here. I've heard about this site from I Came from Nothing and my friend David Murray of Seibei sent me a link to his post here. I thought I should sign up and share what I am up to.

I run the site How to start a Clothing Company, own Mediocore Clothing, and do some freelance stuff www.jonathankruse.com.

I am just starting up a new company called SHRED with three other partners and I put up a site to document what we are doing. I am going to write a bunch of articles about starting a clothing company as well as update everyone on what we are up to.

here are the artists we are working with
godmachine
brandon heart
survival
ithew
alex norman

If there's any questions you had about starting a clothing company post them and I'll try and write some articles around them.


Thanks Guys!

I always wanted to be a teacher but I could never stand going back to school to get my teaching credentials so I just help people for free on the blog.

I am going to start putting any future post on the Shred Clothing site instead of the How to Start a Clothing Company blog for the next months until we are ready to release our line. Then I am going to move all the content over to the How to Start a Clothing Company blog.

This is really good man , i would honestly charge a membership fee. In a sense though its kind of shitty cause all the info we had to work our asses off just to get , that took years , little scrubs will have so easily.

Great work. This sounds like a good plan. The people that will put the information to use and hopefully come out successful in any sense are probably just like the writers of the info; hard workers.


Exactly. I just want to see the people that have the great ideas and great product succeed. I come from a design background and so much of the stuff out there is shit but it's marketed well. I've met so many awesome people online over the past year and they all have made a huge difference in my life, and I hope to do the same for others.

I couldnt say it better.... And everyones marketing in the same way/avenues. This pretty much sums up like 90% of streetwear. I guess its a good thing that alot of brands are having success but alot of talented designers remain under the radar.

Here is the first sketch from an artist.

I think I will probably write a short article about art direction on the blog. It's great to get super rough sketches like this in the very beginning so you can make any changes without wasting the designers time. I usually write a bunch of ideas and thoughts at this point that can help the artist.
