Please note: All sales final for this item.

Mesh is having a moment, and so Todd has added a subtle nod to the trend with our tank tops. Think of these as a warm-weather version of a waffle tee, solid enough to be worn on its own and also a great way to add some texture to a look when worn as a base layer. These are made from soft premium Portuguese cotton that has just a hint of stretch to keep the tops from bagging out. 

The Tank Top does not get its name from a military vehicle but from a style of sleeveless bathing costume that caused a stir when it was worn by the British Women’s Swim Team at the 1912 Olympics. Back then swimming  pools were also called swimming tanks, and the name “tank top” stuck. Over the next century, it became a smoldering, blue collar undergarment on the back of Marlon Brando inOn The Waterfront andA Streetcar Named Desire and something else on Bill Murray inCaddyshack.In the Nineties, the tank became a warm-weather style staple after rockers, rappers and well-toned men popularized it.
