I saw a show about people abusing the word "Artisan" by adding it to the product, giving off the impression that its hand made skillfully crafted goods. this one guy was using a razor blade and hand sharpening basic #2 pencils....and selling them for $35 his only real justification for selling 3 cent pencils for $35 was.....people where buying them.

"just because you CAN charge $60 bucks for a tee, doesn't mean you SHOULD" -NOT TRUE no tee is actually WORTH $60... no brand HAS TO charge $60....yeh i know that some are luxury brands, and have celebrity clientele and marketing..... but they DO NOT HAVE TO charge that much. but they do...and people pay it. the only justification you need for charging insane amounts for any product is.....customers that will pay it.

about pricing.... it really has nothing to do with how new your brand is.  some of you have some strange notion that if you are new, you need to charge $15 bucks for your tee...and as you grow, you can charge more.......where do you guys get this shit from? each brand/biz has to take many factors into consideration before coming up with the proper price point for you. If one start up decide to sell for $10......go ahead, if another decides its best to come out the gate for $50...cool. Do what you feel is right for YOUR BRAND.

i still dont get why some of you guys think a cut & sew t-shirt is more special. all tees are cut and sewn.....no big deal! wether you allow alstyle, gildan..whoever...to cut and sew it based on the company specs and manufacturing....or you decide to try to come up with your own fit and pattern, its still only a regular, normal fitting tee. ...but this is hypebeast...so you have been lead to believe "cut & sew" means premium or better quality some how.

[Quote]nothing wrong with using friends as models......the model isn't the problem here. its the photo that doesn't do your product justice. take better pics......better composition.

[Quote]really ugly and kinda stupid?...maybe. but that hasn't been a problem for most of the stuff that people buy lately....im sure you can think of some head scratchers out there.

[Quote]i like the tees....if you have product in a webstore, use the actual product shots!  they are kind of strange looking, but that can be good. too many people trying to have the same look.  make a few.

[Quote]this sounds like a nice thing to say...and i agree that btitng is weak......but the last part isn't true at all. most of the established brands, bite from all kinds of areas...including other brands. i get what you are saying....you frown upon biting....but lets be real about its existence and the role it has played, and the outcomes of it.

[Quote]statements like this are not always true.  they sound great! ......but in reality, some people buy a tee because of lifestyle...and some buy just because it looks dope. some consumers want a personal connection to a brand, and some want a good looking design.  these general, feel good, pep talk statements don't always apply.

If you already printed your tees........why are you posting in this thread for feedback and advice?  its already printed....you already have it on your webshop! you already invested and committed to your idea!

^^^^^^ exactly....everyone in here seems to be a brand expert, whose advice should be taken seriously! like you have a magic formula of what brand evaluation should be, what a mission statement should be, what designs should look like, what a logo should be...ect.....but don't really have anything to show for -how the application of your advice has worked soooooo well for yourself!    you can see from successful brands...that some have very different logo styles, webstore types, blogs, mission statements.......ect. THERE IS NO MAGIC FORMULA....

im really not sure why most of you guys post your brand in here. alot of you guys already have very strong opinions about your brand and your direction and don't really need/want any kind of advice. make your website/blog, facebook page, webstore. print your tees  no need to come in and get advice from other people that are also just starting......what value do you actually put on this advice?

[Quote]why not post a pic of the actual tee...rather then the graphic on a template. it would be nice to se the actual garment!
