Artisan Dekay (kinda engrishy, refers to craft, and your initials are DK).

The problem with using a Shakespeare reference, or any reference, is that, when you Google it, you're going to get page after page of Shakespeare or whatever the original source is. The label will simply get buried. Otherwise I would actually kinda like them.

Doesn't TOJ actually do well in Google searches? If you google it the first thing that comes up is this: http://graphr.net/toj/. In other words, the brand is already somewhat recognizable. Going with "toj," however you write it, e.g. TOJ or ToJ or toj or whatever, may not be a bad idea. If you want to break from that history, your best bet may be to come up with a unique name, like the one I suggested.

à la carte or ALC or Alchemy

In anticipation of toj growing into a larger entity that "brings food and steez to the victims."

They should google well

I quite like how DBSS was created so I'll go with words like that. Easily mix in with all those japanese brands that also have nonsensical names: Mister Blister Pimp the Wimp Seinfeld Minefield Tragic Magic Sissy Missy (womens line?)

"Rewd Konfections"

It's a play on words:

Drew Konfections

Since Drew is the creative force and designer of this, I think it mandates incorporating him into the name, but not be pretentious and blunt about it. To the normal person, it is read as "Rude Confections", which sounds awesome and sexy, because I mean, when someone thinks of the word "awesome" and "sexy", ToJ products comes to mind, right? But you're not just getting a product, you're getting a piece of Drew's blood, sweat, tears, and love into each piece, because it's Drew's confections! GENIUS!

Die in a fire. [edit] I'm starting to think the reason Drew does this periodically is for the entertainment provided by posts like this.

here is what I am thinking; I have been throttling back a lot of what I want to do with the house because I've got to do some more administrative work, and then I'm gonna go wide open and things will really start taking shape. So we need a name that I like and that you guys also like, and what better way to do that than have one of you make it? I am thinking it needs to be something that shows up nicely in internet searches. If one were to make a made-up word or something, that'd be a boon, because it'll search well and also help in being memorable. It doesn't have to refer to leather or food or any one thing I have done so far, because I have a lot of other stuff I want to do, but I'm just waiting right now. Doesn't have to be French, doesn't have to evoke any particular thing besides clothes, but yeah, let go of conventions for a moment and think of something a bit free form, bend some words gracefully here.
