hey guys, im just starting a new clothing line called King Life Clothing. Just kind of wanted to see what people think? the website only has a little done right now, if you go you can tell some photos shouldnt be there, will change soon, but you get the idea...will post some logo and t shirt ideas soon...
Only the female images showed up on the website. I'd suggest a more gender neutral name for the company though.

the be is kinda hard to read, I know it's supposed to look like the ampersand C&C uses, but still. at first I thought it read "Crooks&Shooks" which made no sense, so I had to stare at it for a good 2 minutes. this isn't a good thing.

Another thing, people need to stop coming on here and posting their half finished website, or brands that have 2 products. When you post a link on the forum everyone most of the time looks at it. Based on 8-10 second people decide whether it is interesting or not. If you post a unfinished project, people will immediately leave the website and wont even look at the clothes. Nobody cares if you say more designs coming soon, or website is still being developed. You have one opportunity to make the viewer of your brand decide if they like it. Posting a timeline of your progress is monotonous and only annoys everyone. You are like 80% of the people on here, who start their brand then stop after the first season. 

DON'T POST LOOKBOOKS OR WEBSITE LINKS UNLESS YOU ARE FINISHED WITH EVERYTHING.
right, because people want to know if they are going in the right direction or not before they put so much time and effort into something that people arent going to like....maybe you should understand it from another point of view of the people who come up with an idea, want to see if people like it, then make changes from there too. if you are being told pics will come, its because people are trying to figure out how to do it... the criticism your giving has nothing to do with what people want to hear about their product/website. give criticism thats going to help give them a view point like the above comment about SWAG and YOLO....

Especially the name of a new brand you dont want to start off that way. People were upset about 10 Deep doing a YOLO tee, and they have been around forever. Think of a more original name, and change that awful logo. Based on the designs you currently have, it looks like you are going for a Last Kings look. Not a bad thing, just don't be too similar.
Thank you for your feedback, LoveLifeSwagger has been around since November 2008 and we officially launched in June 2009. Are you referring to the 3 icon logo?

I was referring to the name. It just sounds like the A$AP Mixtape. People might think you jocking him, not saying you are, but you might get criticized for it.
Gotcha, we're working on some new branding efforts to possibly change the name or maybe "re-launch"...thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it!

I understand your point of view, I wasn't referring it towards you at all. I just get annoyed with people posting things like the Crooks And Shooks things. I am sure your brand is going in the right direction.
agreedblushing i actually see you like to give a lot of feedback, once i get everything together im looking forward to hearing more from you blushing

When working on your new name (if you decide to change it) think of something that will be relevant 5-10 years down the line. We might still be saying swag this and swagger that but you risk putting an expiration date on your brand. Just a thought.

New line. What does everyone think? San Diego born and bred

i feel like the appeal of the leopard print overpowers your pulse all-over print.
meaning it only looks cool cuz it has leopard print and that's it.
have you considered what your sweaters would literally look like with a pulse line drawn throughout the crewneck?
sure it looks interesting on the jpeg, but it seems as if you are suggesting the print goes all the way around the crewneck and all the way around the sleeves like some optical experiment.
i get a lot of your references.
your name is 'half hearted' your sweaters use a 'pulse' all over print...
sounds like a bad joke to me

Fuck - I used to sell t-shirts on here back in the day, 2006ish when I was in college - I recently had the chance to start my own sunglasses company -- Party Shades - so I thought I'd drop back in to see what's shaking around here.

Our shades are fully customizable and come in a grip of colors with a bunch of interchangeable arms and lenses. I did all the design work for this, would appreciate everyone's feedback. Full line of clothing too. Get Loose!

word choice and everything feels fobby, but dope. i like how you wrapped it in that brown lunchbag paper too with the fuckin organic ass string too. that shit brings flavor. that shit makes me think you're an artistic nigga.
good shit.
