Couple mockups I mocked up (playing around with these is fun)

You can buy wholesale off American Apparel's website in most fabrics for screenprinting, but they don't do the screenprinting process themselves. Most other places I've seen use Champion/Russell/generic blanks. I tried to call CYC to ask about wholesale blanks but they're closed (open 9:00 - 17:30) so I'll give them another try tomorrow.

Grey loopwheeled sweatshirt with an appliqué/embroidery on the front (e.g., CARE, Care-Tags, CARE|TAGS on separate lines)

Any ideas where we could source the sweatshirt? I'd like to avoid the generic, low end stuff (e.g., Champion, Hanes, Jerzees)

I know Archival has done group orders (Massdrop), but I'd like a thicker, softer sweatshirt

champion is good in a sort of shit way but yeah I know what you're saying.

If RC was willing they'd be pretty ideal since the design studio is just down on west 5th here.

I'd be down for a care-tags sweatshirt

But I really really like the idea of a care-tags sports jersey

For wholesale sweatshirts, there are some American sportswear factories in North Carolina that still make tubular knit sweats. Might want to also try asking Hickorees or South Willard who makes their in-house tees in Japan, they can probably do sweats too.

Eagle USA

Founded by a former Champion guy,they've been tubular knitting and sewing sweatshirts in America since Champion started outsourcing. North Carolina garment industry represent yo.

They also offer a super heavyweight 12oz crossgrain fleece (Reverse Weave® lol) and a lighter weight 7.5oz.

I will continue my search.

@ramseames – do you think RC would be willing to do a bulk order? It'd be nice if they could apply whatever design in-house (like I said, I'd prefer some sort of appliqué/embroidery), but we could always take the sweatshirts to another shop for that

@hirokinakamura – I really want to like that option, but I'm worried that the fit would be a little too relaxed

Here are a few randomly picked ones:

@msc, @hunnish, and anyone else – just so we're clear, are you talking about #3 in the full imgur album (w/ the helvetica neue CARE)? or #3 in the spoiler (w/ the pixelated Raf)?

not necessarily feasible but would be cool if it vaguely matched the colorscheme of the website, with its soft blues and all

What about a baseball cap with an embroidered square Image on the front and CARE-TAGS on the adjusting strap?

Honestly think parastexis' version 1 is best yet. encapsulates the spirit and aesthetic of the sub.

Maj's football jersey is still my favourite. Also big fan of the decks and the sweatshirt of various designs. Anything really would be super cool.

alright friends, how many of you are actually interested in a care-tags bucket hat?

http://www.wholesalehats.com/Style-Number-7801

We could get some cheap-o hats embroidered with "care" or raf from here (they have light blue ayy). I think they'd be really cheap. I just want something cheap that represents us that I can beat up at the beach this summer.

I don't intend for this to replace the sweat idea (I vote parastexis' first one) but rather another option for people. If there's actually interest I may be able to arrange. If someone knows of a better way to go about this let me know, I just googled "wholesale bucket hats" lol

two dozen light blue bucket hats with "CARE" embroidered in Helvetica on the front would be like $270

-beige, khaki and black are the obvious/easy choices but if it were me i'd get something a little wackier like orange/royal blue. we'd have to work out something with the sizing bc i definitely need a L.

-i really like the idea of printing something huge on the back of jeans or trousers like evisu gulls

Image

-id also love to print on some button ups, either or both sides.

-@parastexis' design is really epic and i'd love to put it on something. sweatshirts are ok altho it's not exactly the season. t shirts are really easy but everyone does t shirts.
