Any guy who wears undershirts probably has a few qualms with them.
They’re made to fit every guy, not to fit you, so depending on your body type, your undershirt will ride up in some places or constrict in others.
After wearing Tommy John’s undershirts, I can tell you that if you’re frustrated with your current undershirts, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Tommy John was founded on the belief that undershirts could be so much better.
Founder and CEO Tom Patterson was frustrated he couldn’t find an undershirt that suited his needs. He wanted one that would fit flush with his body without riding up or showing through his dress shirt, so he decided to make his own. He found the right materials, made some shirts, and a few trials later, Tommy John was born.
As soon as you try on a Tommy John undershirt it is easy to tell the difference. They’re amazingly soft, and the one I’ve been wearing has remained that way after a few washes, not falling apart as I’ve seen my less-engineered undershirts do. Once the undershirt is on, it’s clear that Patterson accomplished his goal — it fits tight and snug without restriction, allowing your body to move freely while keeping everything in place.
The fit of the undershirt struck me as a bit odd at first to be honest; I usually don’t do well with tight-fitting clothes, and it took me a while to get used to how the shirt fell on my body. But once I adjusted, the freedom it allowed and the comfort it provided for the rest of my outfit was very apparent. It didn’t hang uncomfortably into my pants or scrunch up around my gut in different seated positions. It’s an undershirt that truly works to complement the rest of your look.
Now, Tommy John undershirts start at around $US40, and I completely understand why many will scoff at the price. You already have your undershirts that work for you and they only cost $US15 for a pack of five, so why would you ever spend twice that on one shirt? It’s solid logic, and if that’s how you feel, Tommy John is not the brand for you.
But if you are looking to get the most out of your clothes and feel your best in your dress shirts, check out what Tommy John has to offer. I tried out the Cool Cotton Deep V-Neck and it worked out great for me. They have crew necks and tank tops as well, and all are available in various materials, so there’s something for everyone.
If you’re looking to add a few super high-quality undershirts to your wardrobe, Tommy John has got you covered.
