Hello everyone,

My name is Oli and I'm new to the forum (this is my first post). I decided to start my own clothing brand a few months ago, and have recently launched a website and Facebook page. The brand is called AndBlack; 'A one man brand, with the simple aim of creating unique wearable designs'.



There are currently only 3 designs as part of the Debut collection, but I'm hoping that with the support from family and friends I will be able to sell enough of them to fund the creation of more designs. I've always wanted to CREATE something that I can be proud of, and AndBlack allows me to pour all of my passion and energy into something tangible.







I would love to know what people think of it, so if anyone has any feedback / advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to take a look:

Thank you all,

Oli Soden

    Welcome and good luck!

    Looking good so far. Not digging the gigantic Facebook Like button, other than that looks promising, great first impression. Welcome!

    thanks Johnny, you're right that is one overzealous button!

    thanks for the feedback. What browser do you use? I'm on Chrome and can't see the "pixels" you mention. p.s loving the full width banner on your site. Nice tees too!

    Nice debut, really well presented.

    Do you mind if I asked how you set up your site? It looks like Wordpress with Woocommerce, but did you do any customisation? Or is it a straight theme?

    i dig it.

    Sure, it is in fact the Mystile theme which is a free Wootheme but I have done a fair bit of customisation. Hope this helps and thanks for the comment

    Really really nice start. Love the style, and looking at your stimulus, more great stuff to come hopefully.

    Are you planning on doing any white shirts? I own far too many black ones and have banned myself from buying anymore.

    the pattern reminds me of this, do not know exactly who made it

    White shirts are definitely a possibility. The plan was not to always just do black and white, but other colours and black.. hence the name. I too have a majority of black in my wardrobe, but not sure if I could go as far as to ban myself from buying more.

    I appreciate your comments, thanks.

    Ooo yeah, that's nice. Definitely has its similarities. I particularly like the body art that Keith Haring did with Grace Jones. Beautiful, bold style.
