Ive started a clothing line and got my LLC, Ive filed for a Logo and Slogan trademark. As I understand, it could take a very long time for it to get finalized.Do most of you go ahead using trademarks filed before process is complete.I don't plan on waiting several months to get my shirts out.

As part of the trademark registration process, you will need to prove that you are using the logo and slogan in commerce. So yes, start using it right away. It is required to complete the process.
Exactly! Using is the important point here. Use it or lose it. The TM mark means that you claim it as your trademark, but it is not yet registered to you (because that process takes years, and part of the process is proving a history of using it). If you take a look at common items, you'll see lots and lots of TMs.
