using a brand name shirt

I came across an outlet that was selling Old Navy shirts and started to buy all that were available but then I thought about it. If I'm trying to create my own brand it would not be in my best interest to use a shirt that has a brand label inside, correct? The brand name was stamped in the shirt which meant i could not cut the tag :D

Correct. Anyone buying the shirts from you would associate the shirts with Old Navy, not the brand you are trying to market.

You can also get customized tags or stamp labels for your line if you like the stamp look.

It's possible that you could come up with a label that could be heat pressed over the Old Navy stamp.
what happens when you can't get that shirt anymore?

i spent a good chunk of my day today thinking about just saying screw it and manufacture my own shirts on a very limited scale and charge a whole heckuva lot of money. just playtime in my brain to keep my awake at six in the morning, but i came up with a couple of pretty cool designs out of the exercise. i bring it up because the thought occurred to me that, while it's all perfectly feasible to do, where would i get the material (i figured i might as well go multi-material with it on some designs) so i wouldn't have to retire the shirt after three sales (assuming anyone would buy one! lol)? like i said, just something i was thinking of for fun as i have no realistic idea on how to produce a shirt from scratch. :)
