Hi all,
Later this year, I'll be launching a custom menswear brand called Suit Foundry. Right now I'm in the process of having some woven tags made to be sewn into our suits. I need your help deciding which design is best. What's your vote?



Specifically, do you think the whole "custom forged" thing is too hip for the room? Or do you like it?

Thanks!
- Doug

Suit foundry is a dumb name. Also I'm fairly sure what you're doing (using the forum for a commercial test area) is against the rules.

As far as I can tell, this is not against the terms and conditions. Moreover, I think it's a pretty good thread topic. So you can take your indignation elsewhere. Thanks.

Using an open forum to solicit opinions will get you a wide array of said opinions. You won't like all, or most of them. Get used to it.

That said, the first one is the best. The others make me feel like I'm ordering a suit of armor...I'm not a LARPer.

BTW the hammer logo needs a sickle added.

Foundry, eh? Is it workwear? What does your master tailor think of the name?

As a suit lover , I do not the pertinence of the brand name..

Foundry???

What kind of USP are you trying to put forward?

The name is confusing...

Foundry bring heavy industry connotations/mental pictures...

Hi all,
Thanks for the feedback so far. We decided on the Suit Foundry brand name for several reasons:

  1. The word Foundry is masculine and goes along with the whole "custom construction" theme. I actually like that it connotes industrial imagery. It seems to me edgy and hip.
  2. It is memorable right out of the gate, unlike a more traditional suit brand name like "Anderson & Sheppard".

We're targeting our brand at a 25-40 age group and $300-$700 price point. Does anyone out there like the brand? Any and all feedback is welcome, positive or negative.

- Doug

Only the finest artisan blacksmiths and forgers are going to be making these custom founded suits. :)

Hi all,

  1. The word Foundry is masculine and goes along with the whole "custom construction" theme. I actually like that it connotes industrial imagery. It seems to me edgy and hip.



  1. So is this the imagery and looks you're trying to convey?


    "edgy and hip"


    [*] It is memorable right out of the gate, unlike a more traditional suit brand name like "Anderson & Sheppard". 

Well it's memorable, that's for sure. Fine bespoke tailoring doesn't come to mind though.
