An inside look at the Thompson Tee manufacturing process
Designed in USA
Thompson Tee products are designed in the USA, and manufactured in American and global facilities with the highest fair labor and environmentally-friendly standards. 100% of our raw materials originate from the United States.
Here's a deep dive into how our undershirts are made from start to finish.
Like all clothes, we start with the fabric. We use ring-spun cotton, rayon bamboo, Spandex and polyester blends converted from high-quality yarn that's 100% traceable from the U.S. Then, we dye the fabric to meet our specifications and standards, and maintain consistency and quality.
Next, the fabric is cut. We work with licensed garment cutters to inspect the integrity of the fabric and create samples. Then, the fabric is spread across long cutting tables in multiple layers. Certain patterns are hand-cut while other patterns are cut with a laser-guided cutting machine. The patterns are then bundled and prepped for the next step — sewing.
We work with specialty sewing operators in the United States and Mexico to assemble the cut patterns into our finished products.
All Thompson Tee undershirts have a screen-printed inner neck label that outlines necessary garment information such as content, origin, sizing and care instructions. We work with garment-licensed screen printers who also conduct a second quality inspection before the final product is folded and bagged for protection.
