Iwrestledabearonce guitarist-songwriter Steven Bradley is not just a talented metal musician. Bradley has also just launched Let's Make Mistakes, his very own clothing line. Items that are available for purchase include logo t-shirts, tanks, stickers and koozies.
The Let's Make Mistakes line is available online here,
as well as on the road this summer at the HK Army Tent on the Vans Warped Tour, and on the All Stars Tour.
Let's Make Mistakes is also a charitable endeavor, as Bradley will donate 10% of the revenue from the line to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. The foundation works to restore music education programs in pubic schools.
"I decided that if I was going to start up a clothing line, the money made from it should definitely help a cause that I'm passionate about," Bradley recently told Noisecreep. "I'm fortunate enough to have a great family who have supported my musical aspirations for as long as I can remember, and without their support I definitely wouldn't be in Iwrestledabearonce
, traveling the world, and living the dream I've had since I was young. I know that not everyone is lucky enough to be raised in that same environment, so if selling these clothes can help generate enough money for VH1 Save The Music to purchase just one instrument for a kid who desperately wants it, then that will be by far one of the best things I've made happen in my life."
The mission behind Let's Make Mistakes is simple, Bradley says. "It's primarily about spreading the message of embracing every single opportunity that you have in life. Nothing is worse than looking back on a missed chance and kicking yourself for wasting what could have turned into something amazing."
Bradley also offered some insight about why he named his clothing line something that on the surface, sounds a bit negative. "I've found that more often than not, the best things in life happen when you let your guard down a little and try something new," Bradley said. "Hence, 'mistakes' shouldn't always be looked down upon as terrible, when they could in fact be the start of something great." Sounds like turning lemons into lemonade.
Be sure check back for future updates, as Bradley is already greasing his creative gears and planning new products. "New items are already in the works and I'm always listening to people to find out what they're interested in seeing printed. I personally check the Let's Make Mistakes Facebook and Twitter on a daily basis, and would love to hear people's thoughts on what should come next."
The most extensive product availability will be through the Let's Make Mistakes MerchNow webstore
