We’re so chuffed to be welcoming back the effortless styles of Sunspel this season. Sunspel is the brand that goes with everything, it’s an essential for every single man out there – not matter your look. The best thing about Sunspel is it’s sheer simplicity. There’s something to be said about pulling on a ridiculously soft fine cotton t-shirt in the morning, it’s sure to put you in a good mood.
The British label got a shed load of attention back in 2006 when it was selected for Daniel Craig’s wardrobe, when he made his debut as James Bond in “Casino Royale”. This was when any die hard Bond enthusiast was frantically searching the web for the Riviera polo shirt – which he wears when M comes to reprimand him in the Bahamas. The Riviera polo is now one of their most popular styles. GQ named it “undoubtedly one of the best summer shirts money can buy”. Pretty high praise. The reason it’s so well received is because it’s unlike any other standard polo. It’s made from their warp knit cotton fabric which they’ve been using since before Bond hit our screens, this fabric is wonderfully breathable and perfect for hot summer days. It’s such a dapper look that you’d easily get away with it for work. Luckily we’ve just got said polo shirt back in stock, so you can judge that for yourselves.
Sunspel is an old brand founded in 1822 by one of the great early British industrialists and fabric innovators. Thomas Arthur Hill wanted to create simple clothing for every day use, something which the brand continues to this day. Their philosophy is to create “exceptional, everyday clothing from beautiful fabrics”. Their cotton t-shirts are made from a very specific Egyptian cotton, which just adds that touch of luxury to a basic item.
For the cooler months ahead, we’ve got these beautiful merino knitted polos. They’re going to look great with a pair of dark blue jeans and brogues. Is it bad that we’re already looking forward to the Autumn so we can start wearing them? There’s also a brilliant button through knitted jacket and blazer too, another reason to look forward to the colder months. But for right now, we’re all about the Sunspel crew neck t-shirt and polo. Perfect for those muggy afternoons and sweltering vacation days. It’s the brand that goes with everything, check it out.
