Does not meet WP:GNG and WP:CORP, namely significant coverage in multiple reliable independent sources. A Google news search for “THIS Brand Clothing” shows nothing. Nothing in Google books either. A Google news search for Scott Lombard shows no clothing related articles. Likewise nothing for Buddy Jackson. The article itself currently has three sources. One is to a single page article in a Canadian fashion magazine. I have not read this article. It is unclear whether it covers the subject in any depth (it is given as a source to the date and location of the company’s founding). The second, to ABC news, does not mention THIS Brand Clothing. The third is to a free monthy community paper. I have not read this article. It does not appear in the online edition [1] but it may be print only. The depth of coverage is unclear--it is given as a source for the company's location and that it makes tie-dyes. I have deleted a couple of other questionable sources, for example an untitled article from “Business Daily” on the grounds that Ulrich's Periodicals Directory says there is no publication with that name. Finally, lending support to the concern that this is just a promotional page, the company’s own website [2] (under THIS COMPANY) links directly to this Wikipedia article to provide company information.

  • Strong Delete Fails WP: GNG, as there are no reliable sources. The one source that can be considered reliable has an article that has nothing to do with the listed company. Electriccatfish2 (talk) 19:53, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. Lacks reliable independent secondary sources to establish notability as required by WP:GNG. I wasn't able to access the sources given but they do not appear helpful. I was not able to find anything useful through the usual Google searches. In addition, the article appears to be an WP:Advertisement. Msnicki (talk) 02:14, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete. Per aforementioned reasons. I also tried to find reliable third party sources for the article through google but none were available. It would seem that this brand is indeed not notable at all. - Takeaway (talk) 15:10, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
