    I was wondering if anyone else here was sponsored by a clothing company. I'm just curious since so many groups seem to have these deals nowadays.

    I should look into it...
     
  5. I'd like to be sponsored by Casual Male Big and Tall because I'm fat.

    You should. They're actually fairly easy to get. Just send out a press kit. It really helps if the company is local.

    I'm sponsored by Free Idea clothing. They're a local streetwear company that started around the same time we did. We invited him to one of our shows, and we started working together. Then he approached us with a sponsorship deal. I basically get the pick of every line that he comes out with, plus slots on shows that he puts on.

    Contact small companies, especially local ones with a press kit.

    I used to have an unofficial deal with a local clothing company. Free tshirts if I wore them on stage. Worked for me, I got free clothes, they got free advertising. A lot of small companies are looking or willing to do this and link your website if you link theirs.
     
  8. I used to get free stuff from a friends clothing company, but they disbanded. It wasn't a sponsorship, but it was sweet. My three favorite t-shirts are all shirts that I got from them.

  9. Much to Carlos' dismay, Mark is also sponsored by Snuggie...

  10. And he represents that company rather well, don't you think?:D

    That may be the best photoshop job I've ever seen.

    Anyway, I like looking at member's clothing sponsorships. Its always cool to check out indie companies to see what they're doing. I think if I ever get a gigging project going (working on it), I'll look into getting one.

    Of course, if it were up to me, I'd just have a sponsorship with Converse Chuck Taylors and whichever clothing brand wants to make matching V-necks.
