I have a designer, people to produce it in China, and investers. My biggest problem is getting them in the stores. I don't want to go to local retail stores I want to go to corporite stores like Pacsun, Zumiez, Demo, ect ect.
Does anyone know the steps I need to take to get my shirts instores?

while i don't think there are any by the book steps that will get you there, i keep hearing trade shows are the way to go for a lofty goal such as this.

other ideas:
1)get to know someone on the inside (owners\managers, purchasing agents, marketing personnel)
2)blindly send in samples of your work
3)get an endorsement that would appeal to the company your targeting and leverage that

One good way to get into these stores and get exposure to a lot of big retail outlets, is to hit up the tradeshow circuit:

You could always try pounding the pavement (looking up buyer names, getting contacts, making phone calls, sending samples), but I think a strong showing of a strong line in a tradeshow or two can get you in the direction you want to go
