I have a brand that is still pretty new, the brand's name is "FUCK YOUR HUSTLE" and I KNOW that our tees are definitely not for everybody, and I already know that it limits who would even think about buying our products, but it's a risk I decided to take, and while it helps to instantly get peoples attention, it definitely hurts sales. So I've been focusing more on getting designs without the word FUCK on them, and I made a new url for our site which is http://ShopFYH.com 

The brand has been a learning experience, and a fun side project of mine that also got me more into photography/video cause I didn't want to have to rely on anyone else to do all of that for me, and now I have the ability to get all the promo material I want a lot easier. That is something I'd highly suggest investing in, a nice camera and taking some time to learn. The brand has also helped me with a lot of great networking opportunities, so anyone that thinks it's a waste of time, I beg to differ and wouldn't have changed anything from my experience so far. I also have a few porn stars rocking our brand, and a lot of rappers, and youtubers, so we're not trying to be anything we're not, considering our brand name, and most of our tee designs so far.

Here's some pics from different shoots I've done, and to showcase some of our tees and what not. I'm not against any constructive criticism, just keep in mind what I already said about knowing the negatives of having the word FUCK in my brand name and on my tees!

Fuckin' dope! I think it's great that you are keeping true to yourself and what your brand is about. I love the "Good things happen to those who hustle" shirt. And it's always a plus when you can get hot porn stars to wear your stuff, keep it up man.

I don't think that anyone would want to wear clothing that has the word deadbeat on it.

I think it's sad that there are so many haters on this thread. The whole point of this thread is for people to share their new brands and to get feedback, whether it's positive or negative. If you're going to come on here to just bash other people's brands and not contribute anything else, then why even bother? I have seen a lot of cool and fresh stuff on this thread that I have liked and I've also seen a lot of stuff that hasn't been that great or original. I think the fact that so many people come on here just to bash and hate on other brands makes people reluctant to want to share their stuff. Let's try and be more helpful and give actual advice/feedback instead of just bashing and hating on everything. Just my two cents, sorry for the rant.

not really appealing as a name...that is not to say you cant spin it to be positive, its hard though, but the description of the brand itself has to be something really, really good. With a little more research why not try just making up a word, then you can really give it your own meaning. 

    Think about it like this, someone see you wearing a tee with deadbeat on it, and from the jump they have there own idea of what this brand could possible be about, and in this case its not good. The flip-side of this is if you use a word that is made up or doesn't really exist, it promote intrigues and they want to know what that is your wearing, and it gives you more freedom to define the brand....hope this helps.

The Curb Clothing Co.What does this brand mean to you? You should figure what direction you want to go in so you have a better idea for designs.By "tearing it up" do you mean skating?
It means a lot more than just being with friends and yes skating too, I want to make this a brand in which someone can be inspired and motivated to go out and chase their dreams. A curb by definition is something that checks or restrains. On the


sides of streets we have curbs to restrain us from the road, prevent


cars from being on sidewalks and lawns, and regulates water and


transfers it to storm drains. It takes control of it's environment and


regulates everything it faces. That's \the message I want to get across. Take control of


everything around you, from unattainable wishes to small goals. Make it


happen, take control of who you are and what you become. That's what I want to make of The Curb. That's why I'm going to scrap all the designs and start from scratch but leave the logo the way it is. I feel like it illustrates the message by restraining the T in side the C.
That's cool man, I can appreciate the thought you put into what you want your brand to be about. I think you're doing the right thing by starting over and coming up with designs that better suit your brand's vision. Keep chasing your dream!
thats the description you should be using in my opinion...i would agree with sacrilege staring over is the best thing..take your time honestly

True, but you can have some fun in the clothing game. It's not like we're all stock brokers or some shit.

Because people go way into detail with their brand. They write about how they're going to change the world or do some inspirational shit. Feels like the market is saturated with these type of brands there's no need to keep adding to the pile. Keep it plain and simple. You're not going to change the world or better yet inspire someone through a piece of clothing... RELAX

Hey, Here's my story. I'm currently in my last year at College in New Zealand, for the last few years design and art have taken over. I've worked with a huge amount of companies and people the last few years creating logos and completing projects (Most found here - http://royds.deviantart.com/ and more recently here - http://dribbble.com/Royds) but seeing my work online hasn't been enough, I want to work with more mediums so since December last year I've been started bringing my passion to life, through more than just a .ai or .png file, but on tshirts, street signs and buildings, everywhere.

This is STVUNCH, STVUNCH is an example of passion, STVUNCH is big.

Below are photos of the first printed tee, Cop I







Printed stickers



Recently made a stencil, which is being put to good use.







I have a giant canvas board in my room that I constantly print out work and display it.



Cop II, which is currently being printed today.



I'm currently living my dream, and I'm enjoying it.

Enjoy the journey with me via

@jbumbumm guessing by your previous post, you are the type of person that doesn't inspire anyone or change anything.

Good day to you.

Lol You know it's true man. I respect your work so I'm not hating on
you. Just some of these new brands on here go super into detail about
what their clothing line means, and their designs either lack creativity or have nothing to do with their image..

I agree, but at the same time if you want to make a living off your brand and the clothes you put out, you better take it seriously. To me, taking it seriously means being dedicated to your brand and trying to make it the best it can be. I think you have to be able to be open minded and laugh at yourself, but you also have to be serious when it comes to the business side of what you're doing. I do agree though that a lot of brands on here put this essay for a description and then their designs are just one cliche word or some unoriginal picture/drawing.

I just launched an Indiegogo for my brand called Always Starving. It is essentially a pre-order, I've seen a lot of Indiegogos that want you to donate money and get almost nothing in return. With out campaign you can get a lot for your money. We're doing 5 graphic tees, 2 pockets tees and for the campaign only, we are doing sunglasses and koozies. Please click the gallery tab on the Indiegogo to see what all of our designs look like. 

Indiegogo 

Thanks.

Hey Guys

Iv started streetwear brand called Long days (clothing) about a year ago but we are still in the beginning. The name is patented and we have designed a few prints but that's pretty much it. We are planning to start making some sells this summer. I live in Helsinki, Finland and the streetwear isn't such a big thing in here, so i guess i just have to work extra hard haha

Here are few of our designs, hope u will like them and give me some feedback ! (I was stoked that Nicky Diamond liked our Short money design on instagram lol )
