Shopping Bag


Operating since 1860, Sunspel created some of the world’s first t-shirts. This British brand manufactures their t-shirts in the same UK factory they’ve occupied since 1937. They use the knowledge and skill built up over years of operation to continually refine their production and design processes, working closely with manufacturing partners who share their values.

Throughout it’s history, Sunspel has had several moments which captured the attention of the world. In 1985, Levi’s featured their boxer shorts in their “Launderette” TV ad, which featured Nick Kamen stripping down to his Sunspel Boxer Shorts in a laundromat – catapulting boxer shorts from niche luxury item in the UK to a cultural icon. In 2005, Daniel Craig wore the Riviera Polo as James Bond in Martin Campbell’s Casino Royale, cementing yet another iconic Sunspel design.

While their t-shirts are still manufactured in their Long Eaton, Nottingham, UK, they have established close relationships with specialty garment makers in Portugal and Scotland to develop other styles as the brand has expanded. Materials are sourced from trusted producers in Japan, Italy, France, and Scotland. To make their brand as sustainable as possible, Sunspel strives to: Use natural, renewable materials that are sustainably and ethically farmed, maintain supply chain transparency, ensure ethical treatment of labourers and the environment, and make timeless, long-lasting products.
