Sunspel on Film
Footnote for Summer
I'm a big fan of Sunspel clothing and underwear, particularly their polo shirts. I'm slowly building a collection to rival my John Smedley knitwear collection. Classic and understated, with the finest, softest cotton. I believe the one above and below is made from long-staple Egyptian cotton. Feels like silk to wear. It performed extremely well during the heat of summer. Draped well and the collar sat nicely. The same could be said for Sunspel's classic Bond-approved Riviera polo shirts made from cooling mesh cotton. The range of flat colours for those is exceptional, and very wearable. I'd say the first stop should be the navy, then the sky, then the moss. Remember our oft-repeated mantra about not going wrong with military colours.
Two Minutes Later
They make some nice little films do our chums at Sunspel too. Remember the boxing one (Sunspel - At Their Fighting Weight)? Excellent.
In their latest release we see the efforts that go into making a t-shirt at their British factory. I never realised how much hand cutting and sewing goes into their production.
