I have to wonder how much research you have done in this kind of saturated competitive field, at least spend some time using a search engine to find a few dozen sites to review. Someone here asked about his small site of exclusive designs that he spend some promotion money on but has yet to make one sale. Getting people to the site is a s big an obstacle as any, most stores have an affiliate program paying around 8% - 15% to anyone who sends them a customer.
If someone else stocks the goods, like drop-shippers, or prints on demand, eliminating the pre-buy issue, you can expect them to share a healthy part of the profits.
The t-shirtforums might be valuable
He has a link to http://www.howtostartatshirtcompany.com/ that sells for $29.95
Using a google search: drop-shipper t-shirts
just displayed Adwords ad: Drop Ship T Shirts - Now Just $4.75 Each. No Minimums
You have to click a promotional link on the ad to get that price (seems hit and miss)
Starting at (normally $9.49) $4.74
Casfepress and zazzle.com let you upload your own designs, setup a 'store' on their sites and add whatever markup to their base cost you choose for a variety of print on demand products, these might be a good place to test the popularity of a design with no investment.
To compete on price you might have to resort to importing products, this huge Chinese marketplace should give you an idea of what's available
The answer is obvious. Girl clothes are awesome. I can't imagine why any guy would actually comment on your clothes, especially far enough to ask where you got them. I think if they do just say they're dude clothes. Where from? Got em on the internet. Which site? Quit trying to copy me. I'm flatter, but really...get your own ****.
Or you could be brutally honest. They're chick pants. Why am I wearing them? Cause I like them. I'm not wearing them because I hate them. Dur! Act as if its no big deal cause its not. If anyone gets hostile with you get hostile back. I know that sounds bad, but if some dude is gonna try to give you some kind of fag beat down then I think you oughta punch him. Knock him on his ***.
Don't ever start fights. Just finish 'em. Walk away if you can. If you can't, then handle it like a man. A man in chick pants kickin' *** with his buckle boots and takin' names! Like a BOSS. ;) Make your mother proud. lol
