Tommy John is the first menswear brand to focus specifically on that all-important — and oft-neglected — piece of clothing, the undershirt. Touting its primary product as “the ultimate undershirt,” the label was born in 2009 when founder Tom Patterson decided he could no longer deal with cheap, poorly fitting men’s t-shirts. His response: a line of sleek and slim premium undershirts done up in stretchy cotton Lycra and micro modal fabrics, cut long to stay tucked in your waistline. The longer-than-standard silhouettes of Tommy John’s v-neck and crew neck tees, tanks, and long-sleeved undershirts hug the hips to prevent bunching and render the shirts nearly invisible under button-downs. The label rounds things out with a selection of similarly trim underwear, including boxer-briefs and briefs. Tommy John is underwear, upgraded.
A selection of standby pieces to help you build out (or restock) your dresser drawers
The stars of this selection are stay-tucked tees and tanks — the staple products of this basics brand. No more worrying about your shirts blousing with the longer, sleek tee made to hug your hips to prevent it from riding up. It’s the answer to all our layering prayers. And don’t forget to take a look at the trim boxers, briefs, and sport trunks as well, made with the same thoughtfulness as the stay-tucked tee.
Don't be that guy who wears his undershirts until the sleeves are falling off (and definitely don't be the guy who forgoes them altogether — there's a good, hygienic reason guys have worn them under their shirts for years). This shop has offerings from go-tos like Calvin Klein and Diesel to ensure that you're covered where it counts.
