Stop settling! The best men's underwear is here & it'll change your life

What college should you attend? Are you cut out for parenthood? Should you move across the country for a new job? And most crucially, what brand of underwear should you buy?


Life is full of hard questions. Fortunately, one of them is now a lot easier to answer. Spoiler alert: You should only wear the best underwear, aka Tommy John. Read on to understand how and why this became the easiest ‘hard question’ you’ll ever have to answer.

Underwear: The Old Days

If you’re a millennial or older, here’s the underwear-shopping experience you grew up with:


  1. Go to a department store.
  2. Buy a 3-pack of boxers or tighty-whities.
  3. Wear them and be mildly annoyed.
  4. Throw them away and return to step 1.

Of course, your buying options were limited to whatever underwear brands the store happened to carry. The styles were boxers and briefs, period. 


And as for quality? Let’s just say it was far from perfect. Old-school boxers tended to ride up until the waistband was at your navel. Chafing, wedgies, and constant adjustments were a simple fact of life. The only thing less comfortable was death-grip of standard-issue tighty-whities. Wearing them meant squeezing and chafing, to say nothing of overheating issues.


You’ll notice we called them the old days - not the good old days.

The Explosion of Digital Drawers

In the 21st century, underwear (like everything else on the planet) was turned inside-out by the web. New brands started popping up left and right. Fly-by-night retailers sold direct-from-overseas goods and ‘fast fashion’ brands slapped fancy-looking labels on skivvies of dubious quality. 


Suddenly, the consumer dilemma changed. No longer were we stuck choosing between a few mainstream brands at the department store. Instead, we had the opposite problem: Too many options


When thousands of styles, makers, and materials are available with a swipe and a tap, picking the perfect underwear brand seemed nigh-impossible.

Tommy John: Dawn of a New Age

So how - in that wild-west underwear era - did Tommy John gear come to be heralded as revolutionary? Why do we consistently make the cut when undergarment aficionados assemble their ‘Best Of’ lists?


It’s not magic - we’re just obsessed with creating truly high-quality products. That means:


    • Premium materials: Made with high-quality, contouring fabrics that wick away heat and moisture while staying cool, light, and breathable.
  • No-roll waistband: Our innovative design stays put, and never rides up or bunches.
    • Contoured pouch: Supports your stuff without squeezing, chafing, or crushing.
    • Horizontal Quick Draw® fly: Gives easy bathroom access without compromising comfort.
    • No-wedgie guarantee: This one’s pretty self-explanatory. If you love wedgies, you’ll hate Tommy John.

    Styles For Days

    Of course, it’s not just premium materials and groundbreaking design that makes our underwear unbeatable - it’s the incredible range of styles.


    Want a no-frills pair of world-class underwear? Try our standard Cool Cotton model, made with soft, high-quality pima cotton. Looking for something extra-smooth, luxurious, and comfortable? Try our Second Skin underwear, for an unbelievably velvety feel and body-hugging comfort. Or maybe you want something ultralight, ultra-packable, and ridiculously breathable? In that case, go for the Tommy John Air. And if you’re looking for something extra-durable and designed for exercise, choose the 360 Sport model. 


    You can also choose from a huge range of cuts, including standard briefs, boxer-briefs, trunks, relaxed fit boxers, and square cut underwear. The combinations are virtually endless, so you’re sure to find something you love.


    Of course, if you want to look good in your skivvies (and what kind of maniac doesn’t?), then Tommy John has you covered. We carry an endless selection of snazzy looks, from single-tone to colorblock to fabulous pineapple print.

    Instant Faves, Guaranteed

    We know buying underwear sight-unseen is a bit of a gamble, so we do everything we can to make the whole experience stress-free and painless. That’s why your Tommy John underwear comes with a "Best Pair You'll Ever Wear or It's Free" Guarantee.


    In case that isn’t self-explanatory, here’s how it works: If your first pair of underwear isn’t your top-notch absolute favorite, for any reason at all, you don’t have to pay for it. Just let us know within 30 days if you don’t love it, and we’ll replace it with something better or refund your money completely. 


    Pretty simple, no? The thing is, We don’t just want to tell you that Tommy John makes the best underwear. We want you to agree. And if you don’t, we’ll do everything we can to make it right.
