post #8806 of 13013
Tiny repeating motifs are a hallmark of a preppy stream of ties, belts and pants. These are often anchors, whales, nautical flags, lobsters, etc.. Trousers with animal motifs are called "critter pants."

The danger of building a line around one motif is that you rise and fall with it alone. It's a stylistic monoculture. Lines built around a fishing/nautical heritage, for ex, have a broader style base.

For a real-life example of the monoculture, check the rise and fall of skull-and-crossbones. A few years ago, it was fresh. Then it was omnipresent. Now it's just tired.

As a result, I think your company would make a killing, and you should start it immediately!

 


Haha.. yeah i think the trouser thing is much. I have some blue rugby trousers with little bulldogs all over them. Its cool in a certain setting - but weird everywhere else. I don't think I would go as far as do anything like that. I already have a few designs for shirts, I just need to think of a decent name that also has a domain name available. I like Anchor Supply Co. - and emailed the domain holder of anchorsupply.com for pricing information. I'd like to have these things owned before I do anything.

Other thoughts: Anchor Culture, Ship and Anchor Supply Co., The Anchor (Costs $1500 for theanchor.com), Anchors Aweigh, Ancora Supply Co. (italian for anchor), Ancoris Supply Co. (Latin), Copia Anchorum Co. (Anchor Supply)

Any suggestions. If using a different language I'd prefer latin, but the entire name doesnt have to be in latin. The main thing would be if its simple to remember, not too long and a domain name is available for it (for relatively cheap)

Thanks for input. Maybe a more nautical approach should be done.

Was that an inadvertent politically incorrect, racist pun?

Tony Abbott? You have to be kidding. He never has a good fit.

To non-Australians - what do you think of this look/fit?

In my opinion, the sleeves of the suit are a bit too long; don't like the color of the tie with the navy suit, more contrast needed; would have preferred a 2 button instead of 3, and don't like the belt buckle.

Bland and ill-fitting.
