MMA Shirts & Trends - Your Opinion Wanted
First, let me clarify I am new to the site, but am not posting links, art, or other things so as to not break any rules, or to be perceived as spamming.
What I am looking for, is real feedback about the current trends of shirts and clothing that are in the market place. We are developing a new MMA T-Shirt line for some contacts in the RFC and intro's to the WEC. So I truly do value your feedback.
I have a few questions, some may seem slightly slanted or opinionated, so please read through that, and maybe just provide feedback based upon how YOU feel.
Our T-Shirt line is in the design and launch stage, and we are not going to deviate from the style that we are going after, I will state however it does not look like everything else that is currently in the industry: total grunge, skulls, death, swords, etc etc.
My questions for anyone that cares to respond is this:
Is there becoming or is there already an "over saturation" of the same repeated styles across the existing MMA shirt lines, by this I mean, how many black shirts with skulls are to many? How many ways can you print the same skulls and grunge on different colored shirts?
Do you feel that a lot of the shirts are merely copies of each other with a small twist on them?
Are the only shirts you wear the dark, ones: skulls, grunge, floral, tribal, etc?
In your opinion is it smart to sponsor fighters when launching a new t-shirt line, or is that move perhaps over-rated?
What is the average price you have or would pay for a MMA shirt?
Once again, I truly value your feedback and stance on these questions, if I was not interested, I would not ask. We are asking to learn.
Thanks for those that reply.
