I put on a hidden camera and went inside an ad agency today, will report back with names I overhear for your company.

Called a friend who writes better than I do, but he only wanted to give me one name and he wanted $5k.

Kindly don’t trash the names unless you suggest one yourself. If the list didnt need work I wouldnt have been posting.

Hire a company instead of asking for help on a forum and telling everyone they are wrong?

I hear you, a bit of a cliche though. Maybe a pool room, not a streetwear brand. I’m looking for something strong and fresh.

You know Matt. He's going to strike fear.
If you see his shirt, your hands will tremble so much that putting together your stick will become near impossible.

What are you going to do to set your company a part?

God I love this place. Any time I start feeling too positive, content, or happy I come on here and just read. Then I say outlandish things to do my part, in case someone else out there was feeling too sane or similar.

I surprised that no one has mentioned RUNOUT!

RUNOUT CLOTHING, RUNOUT WARE, RUNOUT APPAREL.

Every pool player knows what it means and aspires to do it.

Logo should be simple.

How about, "Going out of business" fashions?

Or, "I'm wasting my money" LLC.

Seriously though....I want you to be successful. Think long and hard before you sink a bunch of cash into this. But, if it's your life long passion - I wish you all of the luck in the world.

If RUNOUT CLOTHING is taken, they can always do RUNOUT CLOTHING WEST?

(I'm kidding, Bill. I couldn't resist)

QWOTTA

Taken from QUARTER, a reference to putting your quarter on the bar box to play the winner.

Now that I've contributed - NO MENTION of your business model, design aspects, quality, target audience ("pool players" is too vague).

VERY different buyers and interests between a 60-year old 1pocket enthusiast and a 24 year old bar banger.

Which of those demo groups do you want?? From a Marketing perspective, do you even know the differences? Since your names all suck and you're asking total strangers for help, I'm guessing you don't

FYI, QWOTTA is also what your inventory will be worth if you don't start focusing on Design, Manufacturing, Marketing, Sales Channels, and countless other issues.

The name itself is somewhat irrelevant....somewhat.

Ever been to the NYC or LA Garment Districts? Hundreds of thousands of otherwise perfectly good articles of clothing selling for pennies.

Most of them had really great names.....

Here are a few...

No Quarter Apparel ... (have a picture of a pool ball with 1/4 of the ball high-lighted)
Not only Stixs
Forty-Stix & more... (can use any number you choose)
bILLARDS n moor
Start Sharkin

Evil Touch!! (showing a pic of pretty girl holding a pool stick or other product you have) has many possibilities...

Do you have a name you want to use (meaning sur name)? Also what area or City you located in?

3 more... "Bowed Shaft".... & Touch Of Pool & Pool Touch!!

I've been working really hard on launching a new company specializing in the Billiard niche. We've done a ton of work and are all ready to go just can't commit to the brand name. Like any of these? We're starting out with apparel for pool players then expanding from there. All input is greatly appreciated. Suggestions welcome. I'm looking for something that screams pool culture but will also resonate with the new generation.

So far I got:

Pack Animal
Pooltitude
Pooligan
Velvet Stroke
BEAST
PATTERNS
GO OFF Pool & Billiards Co.
Win Some Lose None
OUT FROM ANYWHERE
Wasted Cueball
$troke ( “Money Stroke” )
Pool Player
Dark Horse
Dangerous
89 Billiards
NATURAL
BREAK X RUN CLUB
Pool Gods
HILL HILL
American Billiards
DEAD EYE


All In -- AI

All In Apparel -- AIA

All In Clothing -- AIC

I know it skews a bit towards poker but there's not a pool player alive who won't get it.

Pool fam, thanks to all who've actually tried to help out. Appreciate it.

Please no names with words like chalk, rail, wire, stroke, shot, runout, cue, etc.

I'm looking for a vintage slang word for a strong pool player.

Maybe something that was popular in the 80s or 90s.

What were popular words to describe a strong or really strong player?
Examples: Beast, Monster, Hustler, Pro, Shortstop, etc.
I don't mean nicknames like Magician, Pearl, etc unless it's a name few have heard of. I mean slang for strong serious player who walks away with the cheese or places high at tourneys.
