History: Micro Modal,the world’s softest fiber, it makes textiles naturally more beautiful. Micro Modal fabric is feather-light and feels like a second skin on your body. The fiber is made from beech wood, a natural raw material. The natural softener makes Modal fabrics pleasant to the touch, even after repeated washing.
Micro Modal is resistant to shrinkage and fading. Because we add stretch to the fabric for shape retention, the final product is not considered a 100% natural product.
Problem: If you have worn modal products before, you know the problem is that they “pill” very quickly and look older, faster.
What we did: We are proud to use a revolutionary, non-pilling micro modal fabric that ensures garments retain softness and smoothness with NO PILLING; wash after wash.
What this means to you: Tommy John micro modal underwear remains as softly smooth as the day you bought them. The non-pilling fabric finishing process cleans away the fuzzy surface fibers that eventually cause pilling.
Wash after wash, your garment stays looking good as new, allowing you to continue wearing it for a very long time. No more pilling is pretty awesome.
360 Performance Fabric
Problem: Performance underwear rides up your legs when you move. This is due to the fact that they use 2 way and 4 way stretch. This type of fabric doesn’t stretch in all directions during movement, which is why it causes your underwear to rideup your legs.
What we did: Instead of endorsing a celebrity or an paying for an expensive billboard in Times Square, we actually invested time and money in searching the globe for a 360 Degree Polyester Stretch (performance) fabric that prevents this problem from happening.
The 360 fabric we use is designed to move with you, while staying in place. It is also moisture wicking with anti-odor properties.

SleekHeat™ Fabric Technology
Problem: You shouldn’t need 12 layers to keep you warm in the winter. The majority of the thermal underwear on the market stretches out, shrinks, lacks a functional fly, and absorbs moisture.
What we did: We searched the globe for a manufacturing partner that could create high tech fabric that keeps you warm and dry, while keeping everything on the outside streamlined.
The thin and lightweight fabric (SleekHeat™) absorbs body moisture and converts it into heat, which keeps you warm.

History: Cotton is the most prevalent fiber in the world and is renowned for its breathability, strength and versatility.
Most of the men’s undergarment market uses only 100% cotton material. This is a strategy we believe to be deeply flawed. We begin with cotton, but also add stretch to the fabric for shape retention.
Problem: Traditional cotton undergarments tend to shrink up to a size smaller than you are, stick to the skin, cause you to overheat and sag when wet due to the weight of the fabric. They also stretch out over time, which cause an "A-frame" or "tented" appearance. It’s just a matter of time before these type of undergarments become rags for washing your car.
What we did: We found a super lightweight and smart fabric technology that uses a special cooling process to increase the absorption capacity of the fabric. Moisture is then transferred to the surface of the fabric where it easily and rapidly evaporates.
The non-pilling feature ensures garments retain softness and smoothness with NO PILLING; wash after wash.
What this means to you: Our Cool Cotton underwear remains as silky smooth as the day you bought them and keeps you cooler and drier than your traditional undergarments.
Wash after wash, your garment stays looking good as new, allowing you to continue wearing it for a very long time. Yes, this cooling technology is pretty awesome stuff!
