Every month in our newsletter we have a special feature, highlighting the best products for your brand. Brought to you by our Customer Service and Brand Expert James, who has a wealth of knowledge on all the products we have to offer. This time around James recommends garments to start a skate brand.
If you’re into skating or extreme sports and have been thinking about setting up your own brand, now’s the time to do it. Skateboarding made it’s Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 and local lad Declan Brooks won bronze in the BMX Freestyle finals. If that hasn’t inspired you, then maybe the fact a new Undercover Skatepark set to open, just up the road from Sea Dog HQ will?
James’ Tips On Starting A Skate Brand
To start a skate brand I recommend beginning with a small range of a few key pieces. Pick the best quality garments for your budget. By having a thought out and curated range it will keep the quality high and the overall price low. Gain inspiration from the latest trends in skate fashion, skate magazines are a good way to do this. Investing in good design from a local illustrator or designer, goes a long way. It means you can work closely with them to get your brand completely on point.
The garments I’ve picked out have been tried and tested with skate brands, but also unique enough to make you stand out. AS Colour are a new brand that not many people know about, I rave about them constantly, their garments are really high quality and retail ready.
