Introducing You To Threadbare Clothing
I love bringing you guys some new clothing companies to check out. I’ve always wanted to start my own clothing line and I give major props to these young designers who are accomplishing their dreams. Threadbare is my newest favorite! Enjoy my interview with the lovely Sydney!
What made you start Threadbare?
There were a few reasons: 1. I really just love clothes. 2. I’m studying graphic design in college and knew that starting something like Threadbare would be a perfect way to combine my talents in graphic design and my love of clothes. 3. The Warped Tour scene, and independent music in general, have had a really big influence on my life and I wanted to do something (career wise) that would allow music to be a part of my life in a big way. Hopefully that makes sense!
Where would you like to see Threadbare in a year?
Since Threadbare is so new, we still have so many bases to cover and things we can do. The possibilities are pretty much endless. But by this time next year I would like to have vended my hometown Warped Tour stop. And of course I’d just like to see more and more people wearing my shirts!
Who would you love to see wearing your clothes?
Oh gosh, that’s a long list. When I say list I mean an actual physical list that I made when I first started Threadbare. Realistically, I would really love to see the artists I listen to wearing my shirts like Sierra Kusterbeck of VersaEmerge, Fireworks, or All Time Low. I’d also probably die if I saw Lauren Conrad, Juliet Simms or Demi Lovato in Threadbare.
Recently I’ve been wearing the grey Flower Power tank top a lot. It’s really perfect for summertime so I’ve been wearing it tied to the side in a knot with a pair of high-waisted shorts and sandals or Vans.
Tours you’d like to be a part of?
I’d probably go out on just about any tour if I were given the opportunity. I really just want to build up experience on the road. Vans Warped Tour is obviously a dream of mine as I’ve said before, but I think I definitely have quite a few years before I can vend the entire thing.
How do you pick designs?
I chose our current designs because they were designs that when combined show a good variety of styles. I got input from my friends and family on which designs they liked and didn’t like.
Hardest part of being an independent company?
To be honest, probably the lack of funds. It’s difficult to further a company when you don’t have the assets to do so. So… everyone buy a shirt (or two! Or three!) and tell all your friends about Threadbare!
What’s coming up next?
Currently I’m just working to get the word out about Threadbare any way that I can, so I’ll be doing more and more promoting. I’ve also very, very recently started working with a friend to put together a pretty cool event. So hopefully everything with that goes as planned!
