    The capitalist motives of cops and the military? Now, I'm the biggest non-fan of militaries, especially particularly trigger-happy belligerent ones, but how exactly are soldiers and cops motivated by capitalism, not the governments which use their services, but their motives? What is your average cop making, 30-50k, and active duty soldiers are making less than 30k? You need to get your money back from that capitalist liberal arts program you were enrolled in at UCLA. Professors are making three times that.

    Not trying to advertise on here, just trying to get some honest feedback. The site just launched and I am trying to get a vibe for what people think. So yall think it sucks, at least I have the balls to start my own line.

    I can see that my "About" needs to be changed. I clearly struck a nerve with the military/police thing. I will change that.

    Can anyone give me an example of an underground brand that they think is sick?

    Printing some shit on a few cheap t-shirts != a new line of clothing. Most people are not that gullible. You may sell a few t-shirts in an LA skate-shop or something, but don't honestly expect many sales elsewhere. A famous story called 'The Emperor's New Clothes' comes to mind here.

    Yeah, it takes a real genius to print some ugly ass graphic on a tshirt so he can brag to his buddies that he 'has his own line'. Seriously, stop clowning, you're a screenprinter, not a clothing designer.

    Alright, I get it. I am currently just doing screenprinting. You gotta have some cut & sew stuff and button-ups along with a ton of other things. Professional web design, models, and photographers wouldn't hurt either. I am small time, not even that, but I apprecite the feedback.

    Here are some tips:
    1. Hire models - there's one picture probably of you where your two-day old beard is taking over the shot. And no fat guys showing off your shirts, are you nuts?!
    2. Hire a photographer - the shots here are trying to be casual but they're embarrassing
    3. Hire a web designer - I wouldn't order anything from your site. it's not overly 90s, but it's not modern looking or trendy either
    4. Tone down the suspicious thing - unless you're trying to be funny, now it's just weird
    GL!

    The shot of the two guys at the cigarette machine looks like the opening of a gay porno, not that I've ever actually seen any. Put me down for a dozen sea island cotton pin-stripes, you have those, right?

    so awesome, I hate when dumbasses wear that dudes face and dont even know the history. The funniest part is they are basically wearing a shirt that is the epitome of capitalism.

    Sorry dude, your clothing line sucks.

    There originality, artistry, or creativity of any kind. You are literally bringing nothing new to the world. You would be better off hiring local starving artists to come up with original (NOT TACKY OR UGLY) designs that you can then screenprint onto t-shirts. Oh, and lower your prices by at least a third. No one should be paying more than $15 for a startup's t-shirts; especially ones as bland and ill-fitting as yours. If you can't peddle your wares and make a decent profit at that price you shouldn't be in this game.

    Also, get your damn name off of your product. (stupid) People on buy labels when they want to identify with the brand; there is no discernible reason so far as to why anyone would want to pay to advertise for you at this stage.

    P.S. Your brand obviously hasn't been around since 1792 or whatever year you said. That's just tacky.
