Are You A Bellwether?

Image

 

Bellwether Defined:

 bell·weth·er  [bel-weth-er]  -noun

1.a wether or other male sheep that leads the flock, usually bearing a bell.

2.a person or thing that assumes the leadership or forefront, as of a profession or industry: Paris is a bellwether of the fashion industry.

*ref: dictionary.com and http://www.bellwetherfashion.bigcartel.com

 

Now I’m sure you all are familiar with Detroit’s own Jermaine James aka JWil as a rapper phenomenon and revolutionary poet and speaker, but did you know that he was also the visionary behind Bellwether Fashion? Show and Tell Gospel sat down with JWil to get the scoop on Bellwether!

SATG: Why did you start Bellwether Fashion?

JW: Ok so there’s somewhat of a history behind why I started Bellwether. Some people know me from the Rap Duo Jay & Jay Soul but, before Jay & Jay Soul I started a clothing company back in maybe 2004/2005 called S.O.U.L. Clothing while I was in college at Oakland University. It stood for Servant Of U (You) Lord and I believe I may have actually printed up one style of shirt and sold a few to family and friends. However, being a college student I didn’t have the funds necessary to really run a business so I had to give that dream up.

Meanwhile I was starting my solo rap journey and a friend of mine, Jermaine (The other Jay from Jay & Jay Soul) was also a solo rapper. One day we were in the car on the way back from a youth conference I rapped at in Romulus and he was just like lets start a group and I was like ok what are we going to call it. He said Jay & Jay but, I wanted to name the group after my clothing co. “Soul”. So we ended up just combining the two and Jay & Jay Soul (Jermaine & Jermaine, Servants Of U Lord) was born. 

I said all of that because most people who know me as a Rapper view Bellwether as a new venture but, really it’s me going back to what I started before I ever was known as a Rapper. So, I started Bellwether to complete what I started and go much further than I ever went in music. 

 SATG: What does Bellwether mean?

JW: The definition of Bellwether (paraphrased) refers to an influencer of trends or a leader. A wether is also a male sheep. There would be a bell placed around the neck of the male sheep leading the flock. That male leading the flock was called a Bellwether. The way I see it, if the other sheep were ever lost they could find their way back because they would hear the bell/ leader. 

The brand is designed around those principles of leadership. Our logo, “The Chariot” was designed to speak that language of leadership. Our mission is to give people a brand that speaks volumes without being loud. We are careful not to be trendy because trends come and go, Bellwether is Forever. 

SATG: What products do Bellwether Fashion offer and how much are they?

JW: Right now we carry hats and have just recently released our first t shirt. The goal is to have everything from shirts, jackets, and jeans by next summer. Our prices reflect the prices that our customers will see in major retail stores like Macy’s who carry brands in our category. 

SATG: How can one purchase Bellwether Fashion?

JW: Right now our products are exclusively on our website at www.bellwetherfashion.bigcartel.com. We plan to be in retail stores by next year or maybe even sooner. We always encourage our supporters to ask store owners and managers for Bellwether. It’s kind of like planting a seed. We also set up at concerts and events around the Metro Detroit Area. We will be in Chicago for a huge conference in July. 

SATG: Where will Bellwether Fashion be in the future?

JW: In the future we plan to be in every major retail store and in every mall in the world. Earth is our Target Market
