Back in 2014, Harry Nurse found himself immersed in London’s underground dance music scene. Captivated and intoxicated by the capital’s clubbing culture, Nurse wanted in. “I worked in retail and my manager at the time was a DJ who was always playing and putting on underground parties,” Nurse says. “I decided I wanted to somehow be involved more, so I launched TFC.” The launch of the brand happened in Nurse’s back garden, with a load of OG shirts and close friends: “From then I knew it was something special.”
Following its founding, the brand garnered attention — and fast. “People seemed to love the idea of being part of a club where like-minded people could share their love for music and fashion,” Nurse remembers. “Me and my friends would always see someone wearing TFC at a rave or festival, and I always made sure I went up to them, thanked them, and welcomed them to the club.”
The brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings. In 2017, TFC teamed up with the now-defunct Sankeys Ibiza for a range of t-shirts and tote bags to sell from the terrace shop during the summer season. Sported by the likes of Solid Grooves head honcho Michael Bibi, De La Swing, Skream, and FUSE favourites Fabe and Seb Zito, the clothing line remains embedded firmly in its dance music foundations.
