We've interviewed thousands of successful founders at Starter Story and asked what advice they would give to entrepreneurs who are just getting started.
Here's the best advice we discovered for starting a athletic clothing line:
#1: Paul Dickey, founder of Spuds:
We chatted with with Paul, founder of Spuds ($15K/month). In our interview, Paul says:

If you love making videos, but only have an old camcorder, keep doing it. Don’t focus on being perfect, focus on doing and improving.
There was no reason that something like a t-shirt couldn’t have the colors and fit to look good for the everyday, but be packed with technology and materials to allow you to run a marathon in, all without screaming ‘I just worked out!’
One of the most valuable things about a mentor is that they are able to take their own experience throughout their years in the industry and compress it down for you, effectively helping you get the same experience in much less time.
