How to Register my Clothing Label

Registering your clothing label / brand is easy and incredibly affordable – a South African trademark application can be filed online for only US$199. The more difficult issue is deciding what to protect.

Clothing has so many branding elements over and above the name and logo:

  • True Religion protects its pocket stitching pattern;
  • D&G registers the shape of all its clothes as designs;
  • Ben Sherman protects the patterns applied to its t-shirts;
  • Benetton registers its weave;
  • Levi’s patents is pocket rivets;
  • Superdry trademark registers its hoodie cord tab;
  • G-star registers its labels;
  • Lululemon protects its seam lines;
  • Calvin Klein registers its underwear band;
  • Nike registers its pay-off line;
  • Dr Marten’s protects is shoes’ sole pattern;
  • Puma registers its shoe box; and
  • Boardriders registers the look of its shop.

And, that’s only a start.
