Hey HB,

this is the first press of my brand Desperotica,
the idea is essentially we want to put out pieces we would wear ourselves//
below are a few images from the lookbook/preview
any criticism/feedback is greatly apperciated!

tru. fucking with it heavy. i want to order the first tee, but idk how champion tees fit and how much they shrink.
These are our own custom-made shirts with imported fabrics and they fit true to size, and are 100% Cotton Pre-Shrunk. We've washed our own copies of the shirts and they fit exactly the same as they came off the press. I'm not going to lie, the fit is very much like the Supreme tees from this season. In addition, you can check out the Size Chart if you want to compare to your own items at home.

how are they custom made with imported fabrics but with a Champion Logo on the inside label?

It's a flipped Champion logo. Supposed to be a "D" or am I wrong?

Nice, all your shirts and clean and cut, but I swear I saw that eye you guys have on your "the watcher" shirt, I was skating behind this school one day and it looked like somebody spray painted that type of looking eye on a wall. Clothes still pretty cool tho.
The eye is called the Eye of Horus. Just an image from google images.

The video was actually cool, nice clean and gets to the point but ive never heard of a brand do a kickstarter. The website is nice and easy to navigate through but i do have some things i dont like about your brand. Doing the kickstarter is kinda lame in my opinion, i understand if you dont have the money to print the part 2 of your summer collection but i dont know how you guys run things or how are your sales are. Usually a brand does the part one and waits till they get enough money from that to print part two, which if youre not doing that id suggest it, or you can also do pre orders which is kinda like this. If you guys are doing good in sales than i wouldnt really see a problem of why youd need a kickstarter. Onto the shirts, i was surprised on the pricing, $32 is a lot in my opinion considering you guys arent really out there, and your tees arent really that nice, like i want to know what made you price them that high? Because with shipping im pretty sure thats almost $40 for one of your shirts and i dont see why anyone would pay that much unless they reallly LOVED your stuff. The only design i would say that appeals to me is the crossout tee but the other ones arent unique, like their kinda whatever and seeing the designs for the new stuff look like designs that would be used for a band because ive seen very similar designs for a band like the swords design you guys have, not saying their the same just implying that they dont really look like a "streetwear" brand design.

Very very interesting perspective. I really do appreciate the feedback. Now to answer some of your questions or concerns. I understand you believe kickstarter is lame, however, it is a way to share with a very broad audience what we've made and get interest in the product. Im not sure if you have ever tried or experienced, but the fashion world is a dark and lonely place if you dont have a celebrity backing you. No one wants to help, people try to set you up, and your means to reach a broad audience cost an arm and a leg. As for pricing, we price that way because of what goes into the shirt, we dont necessarily just slap an image on, we put thought into every aspect, from the feel down to the stiched labels. We're going for premium and limited really. We've done research going around checking for consignment deals in order to guage pricing as well. We would much rather price them where we want early on rather than price low then raise the price. As for not having the "streetwear" look, I have heard that from others as well. I actually love that. We're actually trying to bring our concept into the streetwear world and not necessarily follow any trends.

tbh, your 'concept' isn't new and something you're gonna bring into the streetwear world.

this shit looks a lot like neff and stuff you see at zumiez.  basic graphic tees with bright colors.  i'm glad you love what you make because that's the whole point of making shirts in my opinion.

keep doing what you do if you're making sales, but "be wear" (lol), you're not bringing any new concept into the streetwear world.

Yo you guys are from Tampa right? Word. Haven't met you but I'm Hunter from Divided Minds. Couple things, the video is nice, but I honestly don't see why you need $10,000 to have your company. If money is the issue, which I know it can be starting up then don't have a Summer part 2 when Summers almost over (or get a job, if you don't have one. That's what I did). Work on having a Fall or Winter collection instead. Your prices are kind of high as well. Not sure if it's the printing cost, or having someone else sew on your labels, but you may find it hard to sell your shirts to an audience you haven't gained yet. Not saying put your shirts really low but somewhere in the middle. I sew in all of our shirt labels, so all that equals is labor and time but to me that's fun. I don't charge our products higher because of that. At least you guys are using Alstyle blanks and have the labels, and heat transfer backings. It takes time and effort to branch out and make decent sales, as well as progression. Best of luck.

i really have doubt about (pistol grip) tbh just update so you could see art better on (wolf in sheep skin) critique me though im open to any comments 
the wolf in sheep skin is probably the best thing i've seen on this site.
very minimal, but the concept still speaks.

to the comment that was saying the chinese/japanese characters were misleading to the actual english translation, i agree, but having that text there makes that graphic complete.

 i would purchase.
Thanks A lot homie, im going to go with my gut and keep the chinese/japanese characters there, you're right it doesn't look complete at all without them I've tried numerous things but none of them look as right to me as this design. 
   (pistol grip will not be used at all it is a throw away) 
Release date is TBA 2013 along with the rest of my line. I have been hard a work since i put my sample (last supper 5panel) a long ass time ago up here i have found with the help of another person on this thread a quality hat manufacturer in the states, everythingsss looking goood.

You're setting your targeted audience too broadly, you should first know your target audience, and then choose to either recreate, or create new styles for that audience. Good luck. -Half Life

I really hope this is a troll but I'll respond anyway. If you are so naive as to ask the question in the last two lines then your name and logo definitely aren't anything ingenious thus nothing worth stealing. If you aren't bullshit then put it up for the vultures to tear you apart.
