    Spin = bleh.

    Start with quality, good style, good fit, good stitching and assembly, made in a first-world country, and go from there. Then "AntonyR" would be a great name for it. ;)

    Well, if you're targeting the 18-30 crowd, make sure the name's misspelled and ends in a "z".

    What's the target audience? Is it a complete line or a few pieces.

    If your target is youth and the product jeans, "Sticky" may work. "Sticky Jeans"

    If you were naming racy panties, "Caligula" is a consideration.

    The terms you threw out evoked images of Art Deco. If it were me tasked with this project, I would start looking at architecture terminology and catch phrases from that period. I would rent some movies and deconstruct the background, language and props. Maybe the bar in some movie has a cool name which would be a good fit. Maybe a character has a cool period name that encompasses some of your needs.

    These mean the same thing. Just think of designs/new ideas for the product. It will show itself as distinguished when that happens.

    This will come on how you campaign to your target audience.

    This will come with how you price it.

    I think you just found the word. I doubt your target audience knows what it means. Add an "e" to the air to make it a little different. ;)

    Whatever names you settle on, make sure you have a full TM search done.

    I'm not making money on this deal. It is a friend and wanted to get some suggestions.

    I love Carbon...Carbon Cell..trademark issues here...too many people like Carbon

    That's the hardest part. I have come up with some stuff but I guess I wasn't the first one.

    You know whats funny I was doing the exact same thing you are doing. I did like Urbane but they didn't. Dictionary, Thesaurus, and Latin words.

    Another word is Bon Vivant but wont work cause of TM

    So then go with Carbon McCoy - it's a little too catchy for anyone to think it's really someone's name... I can't copyright my name, so you're free to use it...

    the question is, who are you marketing to, we know the abstract, let's have more info; age, target income, type of clothing. streetwear, couture, ready to wear...?

    and what would the theoretical distribtion be, Fred Segal, Kmart, Neimans, private boutique, co-op?

    Branding gone awry:
    tshirt at swapmeet $1
    same with Volcom logo $20
    same with Prada logo $40
    add glitter and write 'pornstar' $50


    I have been in these meetings before, so I maybe just the guy you want to talk to.

    I almost want to say think latin: 'Prosorum'

    Take this as a critique/suggestion, not as an insult:

    That looks like some internet geek who spells things like "733t" and "pwn3d" is trying to make a pun on "ice".

    And if you have to talk about something or make an effort to "be" it, then you probably aren't it.

    Just my opinion! ;)

    That clothing brand name is already taken - I have a black "Carbon" jacket.

    On the same day I got it, I bought a nifty shirt by a maker called "Jordan."

    Prada logo $40!?!? Where?! I think you mean $400.

    An example of this is with D&G, here's a simple t-shirt for $125..

    While you can't use it, Pharrell's clothing line is "Billionaire Boys Club." His other line is "Ice Cream." Ice Cream is expensive, shirts are $200.

    What about shortening a word? Like Denim into Denm? Or
