Thompson Tees Changed My Life

November 25, 2015

All right guys, this is Randy and I’ve taken over the Wedding Wednesday blog today. Usually it’s Ashley giving out advice, but this week: it’s my turn!!! I want to tell you guys about this AWESOME product that one of our RAD Grooms told us about, and I can officially say …

Thompson Tees changed my life!!

Since I was young I have always had a problem with constantly sweating through my shirts – no matter what I do. I can be just sitting on the couch, or playing in the snow … but no matter what I do, I sweat. I have always have been trying new and different things and found nothing that has helped me. I have even gone to the doctor and they prescribed my deodorant with aluminum in it (how that will make things better  I don’t know, I am not a doctor). This issue has bothered me for years, I mean it has been a real struggle.

Yes the struggle is real!!!

Earlier this year we had a mother of the bride give the groom a bag of maxi pads before the wedding. We asked um…..Why do you need a bag of maxi pads? His response was priceless: They want me to put them in my shirts in my armpits because I sweat profusely.

Ashley chuckled but I was intrigued about the response.

I looked at him and asked, “Does it work?” He responded with, “I don’t know, but we will find out tonight.” I was looking down at myself thinking man I should have thought of this before. The pads in the armpits will absorb the sweat – that is genius!!!

By the end of the night his armpits were totally dry!!

I asked him how well did it work? His response was, “good, I think but I am to take them out now.”

Have you ever seen the movie 40 Year Old Virgin with the scene of him getting waxed? Our groom had a very similar KELLY CLARKSON!!! type reaction as he began to pull the pads out and about 50 of his hairs ripped out.

Despite the risk of Kelly-Clarkson-ing, for the next 3 months this was my go-to method to stay dry, but I always thought there had to be a better way. Shortly after that wedding, we had an engagement session with a soon-to-be groom about the method and he started laughing.

He said, “why don’t you just buy Thompson Tees?

Our RAD groom explained that Thompson Tees are shirts built specifically for guys like us that sweat a lot (and yes, they even have some for ladies too!). The Thompson Tee’s have been an absolute lifesaver for me. Before I was afraid to hug people and try not to get them wet or even just be that self-conscious about it. I began wearing my Thompson Tee’s to all of the weddings underneath my suits for weddings and I will tell you it is amazing.

I wanted to see how this shirt really worked so I wore it underneath my suit to a 100+ degree wedding. The sun was blazing and my body was feeling it and I was scared to take my jacket off because I would be soaked. Ashley said just take your jacket off and see how your shirt worked. I took my jacket off and I was dry as a bone. Yes I was still sweating but my dress shirt was dry and I was beyond excited. I even gave Ashley a high five!!

I have never been so excited about something so silly.

So, today’s advice is for all of the grooms out there that sweat like I do: take the time and get some Thompson Tee’s!!!
