#kreateordie for the ladies.

One thing I’ve realized more and more during this process - doing #tshirtdesign for ladies requires one to think about something people assume men constantly think about but for some reason I didn’t really start taking into account until I got @evaemmanyna to try on the shirts.

One has to think about breasts.

And not in the usual way men think about breasts, no. The placement of the design and the type of shirt used makes a difference. Should the design be above the breasts? On the breasts? Does it work when it’s stretched over the breasts?

(I’ve also realized that when it comes to fashion design, men get a pass when talking about breasts).

I’ve also discovered how trickier it is to get shirts for women. All the women’s shirts cost more, there’s less choice of colours, usually very low stock. One brand of blank t shirts I found was a bit more affordable, decent enough quality but they only do one size for women. One size for all women? Seriously? And that size is basically an Asian size M? And the only colour is black?

As I do these prototypes, I keep thinking more and more that if I start selling these properly, I don’t want to sideline the ladies unless women really don’t want to wear them. Besides, I’m liking how some of the designs work differently on a woman’s tee. Some of them even work better. Interesting.

Patrick, creator of @greenroom136, happened to be in the neighbourhood and asked if he could pop by as he’s upgrading the camera kit pouches for his bags so he wanted to come by and pick mine up to do the upgrades. So instead of asking him if he wanted a cup of coffee, I asked him if he’d like a freshly printed t-shirt.

(I then asked if he’d like some coffee as well.)

Patrick has always hooked me up, letting me test out new products and prototypes of his. It feels great to be able to offer the same to him with one of my prototype designs and get some feedback.

Some may say he’s an entrepreneur. I say he’s a creator, making his bags by hand, creating new prototypes. Definitely the type of guy who’ll #kreateordie
