Tom & Teddy for Dad! Because Dads Need Sun Coverage Too!

Disclosure: I received a product from Tom & Teddy to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

I post about sun protection for my kids, but I haven't really discussed it for adults. Thought it's a given we're going to do all we can to keep our children's skin protected from the harmful rays of the sun, it's also equally important for the adults in the family to keep their skin protected too. Up until now that meant slathering on the sun protection lotion, wearing big hats, or staying out of the direct sun.

For Father's Day we're gifting dad with instant sun protection!
This Tom & Teddy Rash Guard Shirt is going to be an instant favorite, I already know.

This Father's Day, I'm happy to say that's going to change for my husband. Little man and I have conspired to get him his own Rash Guard sun protection shirt. Because we have a tentative beach vacation scheduled this year, and hubby has had the bright idea to take surfing lessons while we are there, I know he's going to be psyched about this shirt as a gift.

It's all in the details. 50+ UPF protection, a soft finish, and salt/chlorine resistant too.

When it comes to a rashguard shirt, it's all about the details, isn't it? When you're paying for sun protection in the form of clothing, you want your investment to be a good one. The Tom & Teddy line is built to look nice, but it's also built tough. The contrasting neckline you see in the picture above is double seamed for durability, the material is made to keep it's shape, and the quick drying microfiber is chlorine and salt resistant. This shirt has a nice sheen to it and it's soft to the touch. I think it's going to make dad happy to get it on his special day.


If you're looking for something fun to get dad for Father's Day, or any day actually, take a look at the Tom & Teddy website. This is a company that specializes in matching outfits for dad and son(s), and I think that's such a fun concept. I know little man looks up to his dad and having the same outfit as him on the beach would definitely make him laugh. Don't you think matching swim wear for dad and son would be fun?

You can learn more about the looks at Tom & Teddy by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

I think when dads and little guys match, it's adorable. These sound like a great idea for dad.

Tina @ My Highest Self said...

I will have to shop around at Tom & Teddy. The boys in the family are in need of new swimwear and love what you received.

Christy Maurer said...

That is such a great top! I'm not sure Kyle would wear it because as he says, he never burns lol. Wait til he's older!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I could use one of those because I fry in the sun.

Jessica said...

I love that you've found a product for adults! After a childhood filled with long, unprotected days in the sun, I find I have to cover up more now than ever before. This would be perfect for my husband who has had sun poisioning as a child and needs to keep covered from the sun's rays!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

It's so important to protect ourselves from the sun. I read somewhere the other day that getting burned ONCE when you're a kid drastically increases your risk for skin cancer.

Joanne said...

Awesome product for those of us living in Florida! Thanks for the suggestions!

Sandee said...

Great idea for us living in California too. Thanks.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Ashley @Irishred02 said...

I agree sun protection is a must. My husband uses sunscreen begrudgingly

Pat Hatt said...

Good way indeed to keep the sun away and avoid the sun screen stuff

Andrea Kruse said...

Yes, they sure do! We are all outside all the time and I try to make sure we all have clothing that helps protect us from harmful rays. Love that this line is also ready to stand up to play and wear.

Ellen said...

That definitely is handy. My father spends a lot of time out in the sun too.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I need to check out Tom and Teddy. Even though my Hubs is Italian and doesn't burn as easily as I do, he still needs protection.

Kristi Maloney said...

Wow! What a great gift. He is going to love it. Hope you share some pics. of him "hanging ten" as they say. (Surfer talk.) lol

NutriFit Mama said...

This is great- I think he's going to love this!

Kisa Johnson said...

I think it's a perfect idea to get a shirt like this! It's good protection, I wish I had something like it but with more of a womanly fit. Then I wouldn't have to worry about showing off too much of my chest.

tiarastantrums said...

This is a great product. I'm super fair and am slathered up all the time. My husband always states he is fine and burns!

MikiHope said...

You get the worst burns when you are in the water--or water skiing on top of it! This will assure that he doesn't spend part of the vacation in pure sun burned agony! That is a nice looking shirt so I think he will wear it without a fight!

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

Great find you got here for me! I need to get one for each day of the month for hubby!

Tiffany said...

Looks like a nice sturdy shirt. Great color too.

Jenn @TheRebelChick said...

This is such a great idea! We live in Miami and my husband could really use this - and I never know what to get him for Father's Day, he already seems to have everything. LOL!

Tara said...

I would love to get matching shirts for my sons and husband! Cute!

~ Noelle said...

I bet he will be very excited to get this! I should look into getting a shirt like that for Marc

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

It's good to know that there is clothing out there like this that can protect you from the sun. I burn very easily so I protect my skin whenever I can.

Crystal Green said...

I love these products. I like the fact that they offer extra skin protection from the sun. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Mama to 5 said...

The sun is a scourer here in Florida. These definitely sound perfect for the summer!

Lois Alter Mark said...

I'm going to have to check these out. Living in Southern California, it would be great to have more sun protection.

Tracie Nall said...

What a great product. My husband loves the beach. This would be perfect for him.

Esther Ju*Lee said...

It's so crazy to think that clothes have sunprotection on them now. I feel like when I was growing up we didn't even worry ourselves with sunscreen much either. It's def good to stay protected!

Micah David Bella said...

Wow! Looks like a good Father's Day idea for my Dad. He is a bit old now but with this protection, I think he needs it more.

Pam said...

My husband burns so easy. We need to check this brand out!

Jeanine said...

He's so cute! I don't think my husband would wear one of these but it's a great idea! They do need protection too!

Carmy said...

That seems like an interesting concept. Don't think I can get my BF into that though. He barely puts on sunscreen!

RANE said...

I've never heard about a Sun Guard shirt before. Does it also function as a sort of bathing suit? I' m wondering if it will be heavy when it goes into water

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...

I would love to do this for my son and his father. This would be so adorable.

Kelly @ Texas Type A Mom said...

I love how stylish and lightweight this looks - my husband would love this!

Lisa Codina said...

I've never even contemplated buying something like this! We spend our summers in Italy no one wears anything like this. I think this mainly a North American concept. For Europeens, it often seems like less is more on the beach :-)

Theresa Mahoney said...

I was eying some of their swimwear for Jason last summer. He didn't need any new bottoms then, but probably will this year. We definitely have them on our list to check out!

Jennifer Juro said...

My son loves it when he matches his dad!! That is a great looking shirt for the beach!

Jinxy and Me said...

My husband is so bad about using sun protection. I'm thinking a shirt like this could at least protect some of him!

Yellow Tennessee said...

What a cute idea. I'm sure my son and husband would hate this but I love it. Luckily for me I do the shopping.

Heather said...

This would be great for our summer trip

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

This is a great idea for a beach day! Always a good idea to protect yourself from the sun

Christy Garrett said...

I remember a few years ago that we went to the beach. We had the spray sunscreen and quickly learned that it gives spotty coverage. Don't forget to put sunscreen on the tops of your feet. This was where I missed. I hope he enjoys his new shirt.

Katherine Bartlett said...

That's a great idea for modest beachwear!

Angelic Sinova said...

What an awesome rash guard shirt. This sounds like the perfect solution for long days at the beach when the suns beaming down <3

Crystal said...

We are pretty cautious about the sun since so many members in my family are pretty fair. This looks like a great way to keep some of the sun's rays away without sacrificing the fun.

Christina said...

I had no idea that there were sun-blocking clothes. Great for those of us that burn easy!

Lori Gunn said...

What a great idea to avoid sunburn and irritation. The shirt looks very nice and should be a great hit with boys and men.

Reginia Cordell said...

This is my first time see a clothes that had a sun block, this is really interesting.

Rebecca Swenor said...

This is an awesome idea to have dad and son get the same shirt. I will have to check out Tom and Teddy for a couple Father's Day gifts. Thanks for sharing.

Penny Struebig said...

Fun to have your son and his dad wear matching shirts! This is a great idea for Father's Day. I'm always searching for the perfect gift -- this just might be it.

Joanne T Ferguson said...

What a great idea for clothing to protect from the sun!
Wish it was available and easy to find in my area!

Raquel Mitchell said...

That’s actually a great gift for dad’s or hubbies. Most dads don’t like slathering sun blocks so it will be a great alternative to protect their skin.

Holly @ Woman Tribune said...

Oh do dads need sun coverage! Every summer I am constantly reminding my fiance to put on sunblock or to keep covered when he's outside in our pool. He gets horrible sunburn every time he goes outside.

Dhemz said...

what a perfect gift for father's day too.

Amanda Simkin said...

You can never be too vigilant about sun protection. This looks like a great product....now hit the beach!

Mom Foodie - Robin Gagnon said...

These are perfect for sporting. Of course, they are also perfect for doing yard work ;)

Roz K. Walker said...

These look like nice shirts. I'm sure the boys would love matching dad.

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

Protective clothing is such a genius idea and I would love to get some for the entire family. Since my dad has sin cancer in the past, this would be the perfect Father's Day gift idea.

Melissa Vera said...

Yes adults need protection as well. Think this would be a fabulous father's day gift for my husband.

Chrystal Mahan said...

I want to get one of these for my husband. We spend a lot of time outside and he often forgets his sunscreen. This would be so helpful.

Ourfamilyworld said...

This looks like a great gift for dad. I love the colors and the design. I will get one for my husband

Kiwi said...

I never heard of this brand but thanks for sharing! Great Fathers Day gift!

Tracey said...

What a great gift! My husband could use one of these shirts for sure.

Rachelle J said...

This is a great idea! And I love that they make matching clothes for father and son!

Kelly Hutchinson said...

What a great idea! My husband NEVER wears sunscreen, so he could really use this.

joy said...

I don't like the thick material of some rash guards, but this one looks perfect! Not too thick or thin. It's great that there are companies making sun protection clothing for adults beyond the specialized water sport wear.

alissa apel said...

Those do look great! Travis is horrible about wearing sunscreen.

Demetra Overton said...

I love the idea of having good looking, durable clothes. Young and old need sun protection and this is a great way to get it.

Colette S said...

For adult men, this is a very cool site and good idea to get them clothing with sun protection.
My hubs will not rub stuff on him, so it's hard to get him to lather up :)
He actually wants a tan all the time!!!

Shell said...

What a smart idea! I'm very careful about the kids, but we tend to overlook ourselves.

Beth@FrugalFroggie said...

What a great idea for a gift for dad. I like that has a SPF of 50+

Christie C said...

I never thought about rash guards for dads! My husband is so pale and needs one!

Czjai Reyes-Ocampo said...

This is a great gift idea. I like the color of this tee. :)

Melinda said...

My husband got sunburned really bad as a child, so much so that it left scars. He now wears a swim shirt. It's one of the best things we get for him each summer

Amber said...

This is something my dad needs! He can get sunburned pretty easily! Had no idea they made these for adults!

Laura Funk said...

My husband would love this. Nice change on the background BTW

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Laura. My youngest went through all the colors and picked this one out. ;)

Desafio InTheCity said...

I will have to get this for my husband, he hates wearing sunscreen.
