Ewen & Shane

Meet the brains (and brawn) behind Tap-N-Rack

Introducing Ewen and Shane, two mates with a shared background as ex Australian Navy Force Protection and Boarding Operation Specialists. They’ve come up with a unique idea to build a community through military-inspired apparel. Their goal is to create a sense of camaraderie and adventure, bringing their military spirit to the masses.

Ewen and Shane have experienced their fair share of action, having served in several Operational theatres including multiple deployments conducting Maritime Interdiction Operations in the Middle East and many years Protecting Australia’s Maritime Sovereign Border’s domestically. Now, they’re keen to share their passion for all things military by designing top-quality gear that reflects their Aussie spirit.

Their aim is to create a community that welcomes everyone, whether you’re a veteran, a military enthusiast, or simply someone who is patriotic (but not racist) and appreciates their unique style. Ewen and Shane believe that wearing their apparel is a way to proudly display your military pride and connect with others who share that same bond.

So, join them on this exciting journey and become a part of a community that celebrates adventure, strength, and resilience. Together, let’s build a community that’s as tough as nails, where stories are shared, friendships are forged, and the military spirit is alive and well. It’s going to be an incredible ride!

Why T-shirts


Ewen and Shane’s decision to start a military-inspired clothing brand stemmed from their deep-rooted passion for their military experiences and the camaraderie that comes with it. Having served for multiple decades on Operations all over the world, they wanted to create a platform that would not only allow them to express their own military pride but also foster a sense of community among like-minded individuals.

T-shirts and hoodies were the perfect starting point for their brand. These classic pieces of apparel are versatile, comfortable, and widely worn, making them accessible to a broad audience. By incorporating military-inspired designs and slogans onto these everyday items, Ewen and Shane aimed to create a sense of connection and pride for those who have served, as well as those who support the military.
