How to Trademark Your Clothing Line

As promised in this post, I'll explore what's acceptable as a specimen as it pertains to clothing.

When it comes to clothing, the best thing to send to the USPTO is either a tag or a label. This makes it clear that the name and/or logo is being used for a clothing line. The USPTO will no longer accept a picture of a, for instance, t-shirt with the name appearing only on the front. Those days are over.

Let's look at a few examples to illustrate this.

2) Your specimen can be a tag that's attached and/or sewed into a garment as seen here
