even through this “recession” and “economic downturn,” people will still go out and buy things of want and not of necessity. if you are one of these people, as i can tend to be, here is a website that has coupon code for discounts ranging from free shipping to 50% off and more. type in the website and it will search it’s database for codes. they even got godaddy.com discounts. enjoy kids.

everyone wants to be gucci

February 11, 2009

gucci is a classic, high-end luxury brand. most people with an eye for fashion are familiar with the green and red colors that dominate the gucci products. why does everyone and they moms want to use that look to make a mediocre product look like gucci. crooks and castles has been incorporating the gucci color scheme for quite some time now, but really, nike and puma too? i am feeling the van x crooks collabo but i gotta say the fila and nike look like crap.

woven labels

February 10, 2009

i got the debtstock woven label samples in the other day and they looking real nice. the first few runs we had a simple black label attached on the bottom hem, similar to diamond supply co. or foreign fam, with a white debtstock logo. we also went with the tagless screen printed size and wash label. for 2009, we are going to do full woven label package. sized woven labels for the inner neck and new labels for the bottom hem. i like the way the sized labels turned out but i might have to adjust the bottom hem label.

here are the new label samples

this is the new labels with the old black label
