Do it if it’s something that you love. Don’t get into it for the money; don’t try to make a quick buck. I know this sounds cliche, but it’s really not work if you’re having fun doing it. Also, start small. You can always build.

David Murray, owner of SEIBEI ( pronounced say-bay) answers some questions about starting a clothing company. "Bring something unique to the table, try something new, and decide what's important to you and what you want out of it. Be prepared to not make money for a while. Don't blow a bunch of money on needless vanity (specialized packaging, hang tags, labels, etc) straight out the gate."

Over the past few months I’ve been fortunate enough for the opportunity to have some lengthy discussions about the t-shirt industry and get to know one of today’s top and one of my favorite designers. Chow Hon Lam (aka Flying Mouse) is revered in the t-shirt design world and you’ve no doubt seen his awesome work all over the internet. In the past he has been awarded newcomer of the year and most printed artist on Threadless, has took up the recent challenge of creating a new design everyday and now is branching out with his own clothing line.

David Murray is the man behind Seibei, an awesome, quirky and extremely unique brand that has gained a large fan base for good reason! David, a self-taught illustrator with a college degree in Japanese Literature, began the brand in 2004 by screen printing and designing his tees, but it was in 2006 when Seibei really took off. One of the things I love about Seibei (and there are a lot) is that the tees are both amazing artistic designs and they’re funny. Most of the time when I see a tee that is funny, it usually isn’t aesthetically pleasing. This is absolutely not the case with Seibei tees, which is one of the many reasons this brand stands out and has had so much success.
