Hi there, t-shirt lovers! Here we are again with a brand new edition of our awesome #TshirtTuesday series. Today we’ll do something a bit different and talk about a t-shirt style that’s not seen everywhere, aviation apparel!
It had never occurred to us that planes could influence fashion until Robert approached us to showcase his designs. At the beginning, we didn’t know what to think of it but after getting to know his work and particular sense of humour, we’ve become fans!
Having said that, now it’s time to meet Tango Fox Tees!
Interviewing Robert, founder of Tango Fox Tees
Tell us about you, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
My name is Robert and I am from Ft. Worth, TX. I work for a major aviation company in the DFW area as a main job.
What about your brand? What’s its name? What makes it unique?
Tango Fox Tees gets its name from the shortened aviation phonetic coding for T (Tango) and F (Foxtrot). We are unique because our main focus is on aviation designs for pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers, and others.
If it were a person, what would he/she be like?
Tango Fox would be a laid back airport bum, ready to strike up a conversation or get a quick laugh out of you.
Simplicity is key, describe your brand in three words.
Awesome, aviation, apparel.
For how long have you been selling t-shirts? Any remarkable story you learnt on the way? Any advice for beginners?
Tango Fox Tees started in April of last year. We had seen various aviation themed t-shirts and realised a lot of opportunities were missing. Instead of suggesting a design, we decided to go at it ourselves and have been building on that premise ever since.
For beginners, we recommend just going at it. We had no design experience in the past, but the right attitude and determination is why we are here today. Be prepared to fail on some of goals, but when that happens, learn from it and set new ones
Key question, why should people be interested in your brand?
People should be interested because we offer up designs you cannot always find in stock at the “bigger” aviation t-shirt stores. We engage our customers and fans through social media and email, and if there is an issue we strive to correct it quickly.
Are you on Social Media? Where can we ﬁnd you?
