Founder & CEO of Tommy John

Thomas John Patterson is the founder and CEO of Tommy John, the premium men's underwear company committed to solving the real problems men have with their undergarments. Tom was born and raised in South Dakota. He studied at Arizona State University, eventually becoming a successful Medical Device Salesperson. In 2008, after years on the road as an unsatisfied consumer in need of more fitted and functional base layers, he founded Tommy John. He initially developed an innovative collection of undergarments made of propriety materials – patented stay tucked undershirts, non-bunching underwear and socks that never fall down. Now Tommy John is recognized as an exciting menswear brand, ever expanding, and leading the way in terms of fit, fabric and functionality. Tom lives in New York City with his wife and daughter. When he isn’t busy solving men’s undergarment problems, he enjoys sports, surfing and traveling.
