Good questions.

I can only speak in regards to apparel. Truthfully, anyone who knows how to sew can make a shirt as good or better than the big players (well maybe with a bit of practice).

When you pay $75 for a shirt from the big players what are you really paying for? It's just fabric, thread and maybe some ink/dye. Think about the raw material costs and labor and you'd be amazed.

I'm not a very creative guy so niche products aren't my niche I'd rather take something that's proven and then make it better and/or cheaper. Just the way my mind works.

that you had something to offer that wasn´t there?
in todays global economy that is a common mindset, that if you want to succeed you need to find a niche for your product.
