Jumper Threads Undershirts

January 17, 2016 | By | 10 Replies More

Designed Made in downtown Cincinnati, and created by Daniel Redlinger a former U.S. Army Rangers paratrooper, Jumper Threads has created a lightweight stay-tucked undershirt, with a $25 price point.

Details:

  • Site: JumperThreads.com (link)
  • Price: $25
  • Fabric: 95% Modal, 5% Spandex
  • Style: V-Neck
  • Color: White
  • Other: Discounts for 2-packs and 5-packs
  • Made In: China

As reported on Bizjournals (link), Daniel hated undershirts because they came untucked and felt like bags. After coming across more expensive brand Tommy John, Redlinger decided he wanted to make something better and less expensive.

While Jumper Threads currently only offers a v-neck, the company is working on a crew neck version, t-shirt, underwear and socks.

    I’m wondering if these tshirts are best for being an undershirt or can be worn as a stand alone tshirt. Any insight would be great.

    • Tug says:

      jumper threads are designed to be fitted, so while the weight of the fabric may allow you to wear them as a t-shirt, if your not comfortable wearing tighter fitting shirts, it may not be a good solution for you.

      the company calls them undershirts, and shows product photos of them as undershirts, but most of their promotional photos in instagram & snapchat show them as being worn alone in an active situation, like yoga, sky diving, or other similar types of activities.

      the messaging is a bit mixed, so i’m not sure exactly what they are focusing on as a brand.

      if you’re looking for an undershirt primarily, there are several brands i can recommend.

      if you’re looking for a t-shirt primarily, i can point you to some articles that may also be helpful in picking a t-shirt.

    I bought the 5 pack of Jumper threads V-neck T’s it clearly say made in China on the shirt.

    Kinda bummed because I specifically bought these b/c I thought they were made in the USA.

      heya b — thanks for the reminder.

      when i first wrote about jumper, i interpreted the text “a cincinnati brand” that is shown on their about page to mean that the company was manufacturing in that state.

      unfortunately i was mistaken, but forgot to update the article to properly reflect where the company makes their undershirts.

      i have corrected the article accordingly. sorry about that confusion.

    I recently received my first order of two shirts. Based on the first wearings, I love the shirts. They feel and look really nice. I will be interested in seeing how well they hold up after a few washings. The Ribbed Tee micro-modals did not respond to washings well (even when babied). My fingers are crossed.

      Hi Jeff,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts about our RibbedTee MicroModal Undershirts.

      Candidly, I’m very surprised to hear that you found that our MicroModal Undershirts did not respond well to washings. We have been selling those items for many years and have not heard any issues about durability in a very long time.

      Some of our initial batches pilled a bit pre-maturely, but we rectified that issue several years ago by making some enhancements to the knitting process of our fabric.

      I would love to learn more about when you purchased our items, and if you would be so inclined, would love to have you send photos of the undershirts so we can investigate further.

      Also, if we find items to be defective, we happily replace them 100% free of charge.

      Please drop by our website, and use the Contact page to get in touch with us. Just reference my name and this post, and your ticket will be assigned to me personally.

      Alternatively, you can email us at info [at| ribbedtee (dot) com with the same info, and we’ll be happy to assist you.

      I look forward to hearing back from you.

      Mike

    Tug, the jumper line is definitely my new go to. At 6’3″ and 240 lbs. This shirt not only stays tucked but feels great. I’m have an active job and this T doesn’t untuck!!

    • Tug says:

      heya jimmy, glad to see you supporting your cincinnati brethren (;

      definitely glad to hear the jumper undershirts are working well for you.

      will look forward to see how people that have other modal/micromodal/spandex undershirts with a fitted/stay-tucked design rate jumper threads in comparison to them.

      from a fabric/fit point of view, jumper is probably most competing with folks like underfit, mr. davis, forca, and collected threads.

  5. Chris says:

    I hate baggy shirts too. Looks like I’ll have to give these shirts a go!

    • Tug says:

      hey chris, definitely give these guys a try and let me know what you think.

      of course, making fitted/longer cut undershirts is not something unique to jumper threads. probably 95% of the brands i come across, and write about, make close fitting or fitted undershirts now, and the lion share of them are cutting their undershirts longer too.

      also, one of the more popular fibers/fabrics being used in undershirts and underwear in recent years is modal, but micromodal, rayon/viscose, and tencel are also very popular.

      would love to hear what you think about jumper, and any other undershirts you’ve tried in the recent couple of years (:
