Tankfarm was founded by brothers John & Mike Anderson originally as a independent Orange County record label back in 2001. The brothers started making t-shirts and fleece out of their Grandpa's and Dad's print shop with great success. They then launched Tankfarm Clothing in 2003 with immediate orders from Fred Segal and Urban Outfitters. The Tankfarm brand is inspired by classic American heritage and style.
All Tankfarm American made t-shirts are tagged with a signature 1950 photograph of their Grandfather in a "James Dean" pose. The brand can be found at select Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, Buckle retailers as well as boutiques such as Kitson, M. Fredrick, and Universal Gear. Tankfarm will also be found this spring in the Japanese specialty chain "Right-on."
