Some of the largest t-shirt brands in the world are likely paying attention to the NamesCon auction this year


As the largest Domain Name conference in the world, it’s no surprise that NamesCon also hosts one of the most exclusive domain name auctions in the world. While the auction has great domains every year, I think 2018 is going to break all kinds of records given the caliber of the domains in the auction.

One group of domains caught my eye, and I’m guessing that a number of the largest t-shirt brands in the world are also watching. There are a group of category-defining names that, if owned by one company would pretty much instantly make them the go-to t-shirt brand on the Internet. Here’s the domains I’m talking about:

It’s pretty amazing to see, and while it’s not guaranteed that one company would buy all of these together, if they did they would own the t-shirt market online. You can see the full list of domains that will be featured in the NamesCon live auction this Tuesday on NameJet.

In 2007 Morgan founded Linton Investments, a domain name and branding company that has helped some of the most recognized startups in the world acquire their top choice domain name. In 2012 Morgan left his full-time job to co-found Bold Metrics, a startup building technologies that make it easy for online shoppers to buy clothes that fit and arming retailers with more data than ever before.

    I was at the New York DomainFest auction in August of 2010 when these names sold for over $1.25M. It was the biggest deal of the day and caused quite a buzz. It will be interesting to see how they fare in the current market. (ps. I’d love to see more domainer activity in NYC, or at least on the East Coast north of FL).
