    Personal Names go well everytime. Take a look

    Calvin & Klein, Doce & Gabanna, Armani, Giorgio Armani, Versacce, Gucci, Hugo Boss, you can keep going, this is because, fantasy names are used only for non designers clothing, you can take a look here, http://www.apparelsearch.com/wholesale_clothing/popular_brand_names_clothes.htm

    If you think your name is not good, trying inventing one, use a girl's name if you are selling girls clothing, and a men's name if you a re selling mens clothing.

    At one time I was going to follow this guys business model
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1238737/Flamboyant-market-trader-millionaire-Joe-Bloggs-jeans-declared-bankrupt.html
    Eaitisham "Shami" Ahmed was worth £60 million at one time.
    Just do some sketches of street clothes have designers put the finishing touches to them and have your stuff knocked up in a sweat shop.
    It's all about branding and my brand would've taken the country by storm.
    ASBO, Anti Social Behavior Order, the badge of honour of every Chav in the UK. I know every yob in the country would've been wearing it.

    PAC is not half bad. Are you in the US? I do suggest you do a trademark search first though. And then if you want to take it to the next level, have a trademark lawyer look into it as well. Would suck if you start with one trademark, then have to switch to another one out of fear of getting sued.
