Exclamation 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.

Hey TemperTantrum, thread's okay, but I'm going to move it to the Feedback section.

My opinon......Less is more. Alot less tribals, no more flames or skulls.

The cursive is pretty cool. But it looks better in odd places. Small where your trap muscle is at. Or on the back of the shirt on the right hand side from the bottom to the top.

I like the new Ecko shirt that Miguel Torres wore with the fists. That was pretty original. Bisbing wore the same one when he fought Leben.

I'll play along. I like good shirt art.

not a fan of skulls. but I love the grungy, 90's rock look. can't lie. tribal annoys me.

there are too many skull shirts out there. way too many.

I love fighter-sponsered shirts. I'm wearing my GSP silverstar one right now. My girlfriend is begging me to buy her one (get your own!) go for it. just pick good fighters.

I've paid $20 to like $55. But I usually settle in the $30 range. if it's anything more, it's gotta be damn impressive.

I'd love to see some test images when they come out.

All I have to say...that at this point, less is most definitely more. Everything coming out right now has the same old look, if you can bring something unique, then you'll succeed imo.

Ok, thank you. Another question. How do you feel about animated...

Examples (even from way back): no fear, bad boy club, zum speed (if you remember those). But a serious animation, geared 100% towards MMA, excellent look to it. 16 million color shirts, state of the art.

Opinions?

animation? nah, I don't think I'm feelin that. maybe that's just a personal preference, but I dunno how that'll fly these days.
