It's all in the details. You can have simple products, sure, but add novel details that fit your brand, and your mission. Have a signature about your designs, and and a unique identity. These don't have to be expensive or complicated. You just gotta be creative.


Right now I don't see any of that, yet.

Thanks for all the advice! I really do need it. I should have specified the reason everything is affordable. Everything is made in the US hence why I feel Mobbin's prices are quite good. I have been thinking up ideas to make everything unique, still thinking. I have wanted to do flannels and socks but I have no money to put into these things. We make gaiters and full facemask, I have not put them on the site yet because I was waiting a bit longer. As far as stickers these are the public stickers at the moment, we have die cuts for the team. It is just more cost efficient for us at the moment. We have so much to give just not the funding to move fourth. Sorry to sound like a debbie downer. I never wanted to do this for the money and that is why I am trying to take everyones advice and build an incredible brand.
Thanks,
Blake

What fits your image as far as I can tell:

Do a technical flannel. Don't make beanies. Instead of block stickers, do diecuts. Make sure you have the company name with the logo. Don't do Logos in the middle of shirts. Put them on the bottom on the sides, on the sleaves, huge wrap around on the side... center is boring. For hoodies, find someone that does straight cuffs with thumb holes and order from them. If you do a tech hoodie, don't do elastic bottoms, make them fitted and just continue the body fabric and surger the end. If the fits good and you don't have elastics then you wont get frozen spots while riding. Socks are in. Do some quality socks. Don't make neck gaiters, there are already enough gaiter companies out there. Make a stretchy dark blue jean jacket that's got DWR. I want one of those.

Also, you are going to need borderline arrogance with a splash of humility and rhino skin to make it in this market. Good luck.
Fucking awesome post - you've convinced me! Just kidding Ill keep throwing pots and pans at the dishwasher whilst screaming obscenities.

ok i just looked at yer site and i have some honest feedback.

maybe its just me but the suit and tie logo is whack as fuck. all that tightpants farnsworth bentley cardigan swag faggotry is a fad and will be dead in a year. it occurs to me that this might be basically your entire idea for a company but you should really quit wearing your little sister's pants.


the pics in some of the blog posts are actually pretty good and it looks like you guys can actually shred, so show it! you should have pics of snowboarding and you guys ripping all over that site. it was way too much digging to have to click on the blog and then click on a post - the pics should be on every page of the site.....

rider bios - a must. you wanna be cool? you want other people to buy your coolness? show and tell us how much cooler than us you are cuz if you're not cooler than me i ain't buyin' shit homie.

HAha I understand where you are coming from on the logo, the idea was making it an M which it is whilst giving it the clothing feel hence the suit. Thanks, we will have a team vid in the next week or so dropping and this will help bring more traffic. I don't know if you are familiar with yobeat or not but that site has really come into its own lately. Rider bios will be up this fall as well as a whole team picture and individual pictures as well.

yea, just a heads up and i don't know if its just me but i am on an android tablet and it will hardly ever let me watch vimeo on this thing... it wouldn't let me watch brandon's reedit.

maybe think about putting shit up on youtube too...

just put that method or that backflip pic on the home page and it'd look so much better

also, on a blog everything is all on one wall without having to click each entry to see what is on it.. it should all be out there on one page, i shouldn't have to click on read more to see the entry. fix that.

yeah I think the team edit might go up on youtube, it can be better for sure but they are different platforms. This winter we will probably start posting on both so people can choose. Yeah I am with you on the blog, I haven't played with it enough but I will work out the glitches
