heres what i think:
tiny ass logo (inch, half inch). at least twice as long as they are wide. made with same material as the jiberish polos (interlocken?). also, make them in dull colors. not just rainbow.
I appreciate all the feedback and I’m gonna try to hit on every point.
First off, I definitely respect Jiberish and own a few hoodies myself. Unfortunately, that also makes me more aware of how little there is left to spend on other gear. If you have the money to do it, for sure, but a lot of guys can’t afford to pass up a new pair of skis in the name of a few j-crowns.
From checking out the searchbar, I came across some of the start-ups you were talking about. I hope the legit brands do make it and get some more of the publicity they deserve. If they’re selling quality gear, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before they get there. Even still, there seems to be a lot of threads of kids looking for more tall tees and hoodies. The market is saturated right now but it’s not necessarily saturated with clothes we’re trying to buy. That's why brands like Jiberish, Plenty Soul, and Edoggo are getting the demand they are - there are so few quality ones like them, despite market saturation. If anything, having another brand like ours will only ensure all companies are making badass clothes at decent price points for everyone.
Respect to UKtalltees and Flow Motion for getting started but in looking through their clothes, we’re going for a different look. Maybe I’m seeing this wrong but UKtalltees seems to be offering talls for $23.55 each, which is $30.14 after shipping. For a blank tall, I’d probably look elsewhere. Footlocker and Walmart have some tees like people said but they’re totally blank too and the quality isn’t there.
Our line has an old-school feel but with modern stoke – like if Tom Wallisch were to jib around with the Fresh Prince. We're going for a small ass logo as someone was mentioning, made from super-soft material (narrowed down to a few manufacturers out of Southern Cal, NZ, Sweden, and Austria). We have colors that are bold and some more low-key ones as well. Sizes are gonna range to fit mid-thigh to under the knee, depending what you’re looking for. Based on the manufacturer and location, prices are looking to be in the range of $15-$20 for a tall tee and $50-$75 for a hoodie.
As soon as we finish edits and narrow down the list for production, I’ll post up the designs so you can all see them. Sorry to the guy looking for tall V-necks – I don’t think we’ll be taking it that direction but we're most likely adding some tall vests and fitted hats to the collection. Thanks again -
The unisex idea could work but it would have to be done very well, i think you should make some tees/hoodies for women, some for men, and a few for both or the women can just buy the mens tees/hoodies and deal with it. Good luck with the company and post your website when you have one.
Try BENTHAM SPORTS, all the hoodies and sweatshirts are made to measure... you can order as tall as you want...
I'm think, you can also order a made to measure t-shirt, or hoodies with more as one colour.
