Most fashion types citing "rock and roll" as their inspiration only back up that claim by hanging out with Lenny Kravitz, or bragging about how they'd rather die than hang out with Lenny Kravitz. For more authentic gear, check out Tankfarm.
Based in LA, Tank started as a record label, but transformed into a casual clothier when the founders realized designing regalia to suit their bands' lifestyles was more lucrative than scoring drugs to suit their bands' lifestyles. The fall line's denim jackets and patterned button-ups evoke 70s rustic rocker style -- basically, Neil Young's onstage outfit during The Last Waltz, minus the powdery white moustache. Meanwhile, TF's washed out tees honor the "Talent/Survival" symbiosis of road-warrior musicians, best illustrated by an ancient guitar with an arrow drawn through a string -- saying symbolically, "This guitar feeds me", or literally, "Roadies stole my archery equipment".
True to their genesis, Tankfarm also sells new music compilations and is currently sponsoring its first tour, headlined by Sweden's Shout Out Louds and stopping at the Fonda on Nov 5. Lenny Kravitz has failed to comment.
