Classic Britspun Garments by an Iconic British Brand

An iconic British brand has launched a clothing collection made from English Fine Cottons yarns.

Sunspel, who introduced boxer shorts to Britain and whose T-shirt is a favourtie of Daniel Craig’s Bond, are among the first brands to bring Bristpun garments to market since we went into production.

Their 1937 capsule collection is in honour of the company’s move to its headquarters in Long Eaton 80 years ago.

British roots

To mark the milestone, Sunspel wanted to go back to its roots and produce a range of garments made from start to finish in Britain.

English Fine Cottons’ Tracy Hawkins said: “It’s fantastic that this British brand has shown a commitment to making a fully British range of products again, right back to the yarn.

“This is just the beginning of our work with Sunspel – we’re currently looking at more ways they can use our cotton yarns in other parts of their range.”

The highest quality

The limited edition collection has been inspired by Sunspel’s archives of underwear and luxury T-shirts and is sure to be a hit with those who love the brand’s luxurious wardrobe staples.

Tracy added: “Sunspel is renowned for creating high quality clothing and their decision to use English Fine Cottons yarns is testament to the quality of our yarns.”

Available in navy blue and archive white, the collection is made with our star grade Supima yarns and knitted by another UK manufacturer.

It includes a T-Shirt, where the body panel is constructed in one piece with no shoulder seams, and a Henley with a woven placket and mother of pearl buttons.

And Sunspel brought an old scalloping machine out of retirement to create a women’s cami and matching French knickers with unique scalloped edging.

The garments, priced from £50-£125, can be bought in Sunspel stores and online exclusively at
