Sunspel have been producing the finest men's underwear since 1850, originally under the name Thomas A. Hill LTD. After a brief spell working under the name Sea Island Textiles, they arrive at the name Sunspel in 1936. From their factory in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, they introduced the woven boxer short to the UK in 1947.
In 1985 their boxer's featured in the famous and iconic Levi laundry commercial, and they recently made underwear and T Shirts for the cast of Casino Royale. As well as recent collaborations with Richard James and Paul Smith, their super-fine cotton crew neck T Shirt was place at no. 54 in GQ's top 100 things in the world today list. We'd place it higher, it's mega and so are their boxers.
Sunspel has been making the finest English underwear and t-shirts since 1860. In 1947 they introduced the boxer short to the UK & to this day they continue to create some of the finest t-shirts and underwear in the world.
