Trademark Specimen Guide - Clothing

Class 25

Examples of good specimens include hangtags, collar tags, website screen shots showing an online shopping cart option, or several examples of clothing showing the same mark depicting a line of clothing being sold under a single consistent brand (although this last example has been met with refusal on some occasions.)


Examples of unacceptable clothing specimens include pictures of the logo on the front of a t-shirt, baseball cap, sweatshirt, etc. These examples will likely be considered as "merely ornamental" by the Trademark Office and thus be refused as a valid specimen. The following are examples of specimens that would likely be refused by the USPTO Examining Attorney.
