ABOUT THOMPSON TEE
Thompson Tee is a pioneer and market leader that set the standard for sweat proof undershirts.
Thompson Tee’s mission is to provide a safe, convenient and reliable solution for those dealing with excessive underarm sweat. We aim to increase hyperhidrosis awareness and reduce the stigma of underarm sweat, helping our customers feel comfortable in their own skin, every day.
Hi, I'm Billy Thompson, founder and president of Thompson Tee.
I've had axillary hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating, for as long as I can remember. I learned to live with my condition — practicing ridiculous deodorant rituals, swearing off colored shirts and doing everything imaginable to conceal my underarm sweat marks.
I spent many years working in sales, and would sweat right through my undershirts and dress shirts. It was uncomfortable, embarrassing and expensive. I knew there had to a better way to manage this problem.
In 2011, I approached my friend Randy Choi, who had experience working in the apparel industry. I learned that he too, could relate to the struggles of excessive sweating. Randy, who suffered from cranial hyperhidrosis as a teen, underwent sweat gland removal surgery, only to end up with severe side effects like all-over sweating, skin problems, slow metabolism and fatigue as a result.
Bound by our passion to create a safe, affordable and convenient solution, Randy and I developed a lightweight, breathable, comfortable and truly integrated underarm barrier that would completely absorb sweat, withstand the toughest stains, and help those living with axillary hyperhidrosis.
We've come a long way and hit many milestones since!
Billy Thompson and Randy Choi bootstrapped Thompson Tee with $20k of their own money. Within two years, Billy accumulated $100k in credit card debt by putting all profits back into the company. Neither Billy nor Randy took a paycheck or sought additional capital in order to keep production from going overseas.
An appearance on TV’s “Shark Tank” boosted sales, depleting our inventory within days after the show aired. The additional visibility helped Thompson Tee hit 100% growth for several years afterward.
1 MILLION SHIRTS SOLD
Milestone achieved! With a growing base of 250,000 satisfied customers across 135 countries, Thompson Tee sold one million shirts – making a huge difference in the lives of our customers.
