I've been working on a new Ski/Outerwear/Apparel Company over the last few months.
It has always been and still is a huge dream of mine to fully launch a Ski Company and be apart of the ski industry.
I am now willing to turn that dream into a reality.
I am currently working on the online store.
ik ik theres tons of these so called "New Brand" forums that never turn out on NS, but this is different.
Nothing is being released as of now. This is just a taste/opinion page.
I am wanting to produce; Clothing, Outerwear, Goggles, and Skis.
I am starting small with these quick clothing concepts I created.
I have been in touch with a factory in Asia that produces goggles, and which will release after the first line of Clothing.
I am creating this post for some constructive criticism, opinions, and input.
I know the industry has tons of companies out there, but very few fulfilled my needs.
Quality, Style, Comfort, and Price.
The 4 biggest things a good company must have.
I am like many other NSer's and skiers. A Broke Ski Bum who doesnt have a ton of disposable cash.
now that it seems youve posted the thread you wanted to post, not feeling it dog. All these companies say the same things. the whole "i know theres tons of these companies but this is different" thing has been said so many times.
so far the only different thing I've seen is the logo, that first hoodie does look pretty cool I'll give you that.
And as far as being in touch with some asian goggle factory, would it not be the same exact things as all these countless other goggle companies but just with your logo?
What are you going to do to make me want to buy your sweater instead of someone else's?
How much per piece?
If you're trying to sell to broke skiers maybe you want to kill your profit margins to get them out of your door. I think that limiting a clothing company to skiers is a bad idea because you cut your target market. Try to make it more of an outdoor/winter company so you can sell to snowboarders too.
I'm no marketing guru. Just some thoughts.
Remember, People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it.
Make some skis and goggles And sell those then advertise them with the hoodies/ t shirts.
If I want a hoodie, I will buy it from a thrift shop.Not an up and coming brand that costs twice as much online with the same quality. An Oakley Hoddie is cool Because it shows a brand known by its great goggles and outerwear. Make some skis in your garage. Start production with your hands on tools. Doesn't sound appealing at all to have googles that you had no part in the making of. Good luck with the company tho, Just not digging the current vibes.
