Starting Alternative Clothing Business: Opinions Wanted

Postby NZBEAST » Mon Apr 18, 2016 9:27 pm

So - I have just setup my first online business.
Really trying to give this a good crack, supplying and distributing alternative clothing + misc across NZ.

https://twistedthread.co.nz/

Looking for feedback - would be cool to tailor this to whatever people out there want.

Few questions for starters:
What brands would you like to see on here?
What other items would you want sold on here?
Improvements or changes?

Bonus points if you know anyone who wants to launch their own clothing via Twisted Thread - happy to help out and support & promote upcoming startup brands, and also NZ Metal/Hardcore band merch.

i actually do know somebody who makes leather fetishwear, but shes already got it in a tattooshop.

and someone else i know sells 'hardcore' themed tshirts out of his tattooshop...

jandals arent for sale tho, not for less than about $140 anyway.




my advice is, if you find out what a tohlg is, you should put it on a tshirt and maybe someone here will buy it.

theres like 5 people who come here regularly so...

$700 seems excessive but who am I to judge

theres only ONE exactly like that one in the entire world....

youre obviously not a professional artist Mitch, or you would see that you cant really place a price on art, well, except $700
