@rashaun I'm not very HB but just an admirer of the style and eye for design (and simplicity). So take this for what it's worth. The logo seems a bit off/ unbalanced to me. There's definitely too much going on in the first image. I'd play around with eye and triangle image, maybe not have the eye touching the sides of the triangle. Also, play around with thickness of the stroke.

And, I try a different font too. The ampersand is cool (maybe use that font for that) but the typewriter look just reminds me of a term paper.

The we are not like kind of bothers me too but I'm not HB and if it works/ sells, leave it.

@yeezus looks like you still have the American Apparel tags in the sweaters. Have you thought about screening your tags or having them sewn it. Shouldn't cost that much more and would make your sweaters perfect. Anyway, very nice work.

@jarrelsylvers If I were you I'd drop the text based tees and focus on your yacht/ sail triangle design. For some reason I like it and find it interesting and you could do some cool design/ prints with it. I would drop the company (co.) part of your name. Afloat Company Clothing is a bit of a mouthful (and seems redundant). I think a few people have mentioned that before.

I'd build the brand around nautical references instead of building the brand for entrepreneurs. Don't know many people in start-ups that would drop 30 for a tee or 45 for a sweater (that they probably couldn't wear to a meet). Anyway, if the brand is working forget everything I wrote but you could do some cool Mondrian type designs with the sailboat tee.

About Us:
Pacific Roots is an online web and local retail store, located in American Samoa. The shop offers a wide range of items from island accessories, customized hats, local crafts, clothes and more pacific themed products.

How We Started:
Due to geographic isolation in the Pacific Region, our island artists are often unexposed to the outside world. Through the internet, however, the talent of island artists can be shared. Thus, Pacific Roots was created to expose native art forms to consumers worldwide, while providing an income to local island artists.

Custom Sewn Hats:
