Ha Ha, Steve, that's a great image. It pushes the edge even more than I thought of.

James, where are you going to market your clothes? I can imagine getting into Target or PSun is pretty much impossible for a start-up.

In my city we have a few Harley biker stores. I think they are sometimes called "head shops." They sell various paraphernalia like blacklight posters and beaded curtains. Most of those shops are independently owned. You will probably have a much easier time getting your clothing on their racks than in a larger department store. I think their clientel is apt to purchase close-to-the-edge clothing.

Have you ever dealt with a small store owner before? You can probably walk into one of those shops with a case of your shirts and hats, speak with the owner, and have them on the racks that afternoon.

Steve has a good idea too. Just like Harley riders, LCOs are mechanically minded people. We're always thinking about friction...do I have enough oil in my engine, are my spindles lubed, what's that sqeaking, do I need to pack my bearings?

I can see "friction wear" catching on with that crowd.

Keith

I had another idea for a commercial, a gal walks by a guy wearing a friction t-shirt and the guy says "oh how did you get so hot?" and then she turns to him as she walks by and says "Friction."

Keith, can you tell us more about what you are thinking on this?

I voted no since I am a big fan of hockey and I like my hockey hats too much.. it's a cool design.. but eventually.. I'll have some Just in Time shirts and hats so I can look professional..

I think I can't wait to see a picture of the design on a shirt and on a model. That way we can get the full effect! Very creative!

Are you going to be setting up a myspace site for the clothing line? I wonder what kind of things you could do to create a buzz for the site. Maybe have people submit their own commercial for your product? They could videotape it and put it on myspace and you could show off the different entries and then maybe the winner gets a bunch of free outfits?

Maybe have your own model contest?

Have you thought of any ideas like that to generate buzz?
