City Approval.
Our eventual goal is to bridge the gap between menswear and streetwear, but maintain an urban feel.

Everyone would love to bridge the gap between menswear and streetwear and are already doing it, think outside the box homie.

Otherwise, designs are looking solid

Whats ups everyone,
I haven't posted anything in this thread for a while but I wanted to spread the word about a project I'm helping out with. I'm currently working with t-shirt/clothing blog hide your arms (http://hideyourarms.com/) with hands on reviews for upcoming and established clothing brands. If you never heard of Hide Your Arms and you have your own clothing line you should definitely check it out. HYA has a pretty big following of people who actually like supporting upcoming brands. If your interested in doing a review you can PM me or email me at Andy@Bluudreams.com
ps you can check me out on the contributors page here http://hideyourarms.com/contributors/

@hkeys thanks for the feedback as well. We are actually a branding company and that is one of the themes behind the line. We plan on branding items with multiple locations in different materials because that is what we specialize in for helping other brands that we have worked with. We have been manufacturing woven labels and other branding items for years and this is our line represented. We are using both aspects of our company to cross market for each other. The branding items are a signature so to speak, may be too much for some and not for some others. Hoodies coming soon with Beanies, keep an eye out.

@thecollective Cleannnnn my man, but it is a little similar to Diamond Supply Co. I think its the that the diamond shape gives off a 3d vibe in my opinion, maybe play with it a little and you got yourself a clean logo my friend

Just opened the CRIMEBRAND shop, and there's already just a few of the One Piece-inspired Poison tees left in each size. I'm stoked to see people digging the idea, and looking forward to the next release as well.

Thanks all!
Hypebeast Fam,

I just wanted to introduce our new brand called YANAGIDA. We have been doing labels and trim for 10 years for some of the bigger street wear and skate brands and decided to come out with our own line. Check out our New Era Snapbacks and our T-shirt designs. Hoodie and Beanies are on there way. Follow us on twitter for monthly gift pack giveaways. Let us know what you think.

@kraws Your brand's got an overall well executed concept but it seems to be weak across certain areas like the motive of "bridging the gap between menswear and streetwear", I personally only see streetwear inspirations throughout your collection not really anything exciting / memorable but the products as a whole are actually well presented.

I'd like to see more from you guys in the cut n sew department or in some hand created graphics instead of just sans serif fonts.

@jakelights haha yeah mate we are getting phasing it out. The hashtag seemed cool at first but like the other guys state we learn from mistakes.

@chadacadabra @aldenteco @adriane really appreciate all your feedback. its the reason why I post on here. But to be honest we are all a family of snowboarders and skateboarders, and we wanted to show who the faces are behind the brand. These boys all shred so hard and are the reason why we are in this position we are now, if it wasn't for them, people wouldn't be buying it and we wouldn't be stocked in 2 shops already. We wanted to showcase that.
But seriously we will take all your feedback on board and learn from it in the future.

do you get fees for integrating paypal onto your e-commerce site?
is it more profitable to integrate credit card transactions?
if so, how would an independent e-commerce website go about credit card transactions?

exactly what is going on in the code for that kind of site?

IS ANYONE OUT THERE?
does anybody know anything about splaynewyork?
does anybody know who they are and how they do their work?
i need to learn this from somebody like pronto

@rare01 its a type of ink, plastisol water-base. It's quite hard to explain but it goes well with the type of graphic that you have. But again, if you want a distressed piece you can do it by yourself with PS (add a brush).

@mufid clean stuff. Bookmarked
@lamash like the tee, nice!

Anyway, camo shirt for Delivery No.3
*Lookbook on progress
*If anyone willing to cop some of the shirt/t-shirt from the current collection just PM me. I'll be in the States by next weekend.
*Flat rate shipping

Does anyone have a store here (pref. North California/ Bay Area)?

I'm getting some hats made, i tried getting it overseas, you end up paying the same amount b/c of shipping and other fees. The shit that sucks about that is, 1) you have to buy a lot and 2) it takes forever.

From purchasing in the states sometimes you might pay a little more but its easier to communicate, faster delivery, and secure product.

Unless you know the people overseas and have a great relationship with them.

just my opinion.

There is a dope brand called WAR starting to buzz. Here is one of their latest shirts.



The artist is also the subject of a web series called Passport Life. I think travel is helping his overall view on his brand's content and production.

Yeah the shipping is what kills it and i think THEY know that. They make extra off on shipping but damn lol. I get my hats made over seas too... not too bad compared to the clothes tho. Im trying to figure out the best numbers for us here.

That is what i was thinking the whole time about the quality stuff. One thing i learn... i almost messed up on the first order over seas because i was going to get by without making a sample first. So now i ALWAYS get a sample run first before i pull the trigger on a large order. As the quality wise in State i still haven't locate a place yet. Do you have your main supplier make everything else for you?

btw @unorthadox i just saw your site posted in another thread and your stuff is very nice. I love the details with minimalistic prints. Do you ship to USA?
