Makers of the highly regarded sweat-through resistant undershirt, Thompson Tee, is looking toward the future with their latest undershirt announcement.
Owner Billy Thompson has just launched a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo.com to announce the development of the new Thompson Tee, Classic Tee.
Hey Tug – hope all is well my friend!
So…finally we’re ready to launch our new product and it was initially inspired by you back when we started. Long story short, we’ve turned down investment offers requiring us to move production offshore, therefore we’re launching the ‘Thompson Tee Classic’ through a crowdfunding campaign scheduled for June 1 and lasting 45 days. The Classic is the same base material as our Hydro-Shield tee, just minus the Hydro-Shield portion. With the crowdfunding campaign we hope to get much needed growth capital to keep production here in the states, expanding the colors and styles of both Hydro-Shield tee and Classic Tee. Also we’ve gained the interest of major retail for our Hydro-Shield tee so we’ll need capital to support the test and full rollout
As I sit here writing this article, I’m wearing one of his V-Neck Classic Tees (undershirt) and as I fully expected, it’s a pretty darn nice undershirt.
Using the same soft pre-shrunk combed cotton fabric they use in their Hydro-Shield undershirts, the Classic Tee has a close, comfortable fit. The undershirt has extra length for optimal tuck-ability, shorter short-sleeves to ensure no sleeve sprouting, and a medium-profile v-neck — making it not too high, and not too low.
Combine all those good features with the fact the Billy stays committed to manufacturing here in the United States (Los Angeles, CA), and you’ve got yourself a great overall story.
