Master the art of sophisticated menswear this month with a helping hand from the experts, Sunspel. Stride out of the starting blocks and back into wining, dining and socialising in perfect style, guided by their round-up of essentials that every modern day gentleman must own.
Credited by Esquire as “some of the best white t-shirts ever made“, the Sunspel t-shirt has a classic fit and only the most essential details. They are crafted from a luxurious long staple Supima cotton for unparalleled softness, comfort and durability and are a true wardrobe staple that will transcend season after season. Try styling with denim or jacket.
GQ once said, “if it’s good enough for Bond, it’s good enough for us“. Need we say more? The Riviera polo shirt is the essence of James Bond style. Originally tailored for Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, this polo is made from a lightweight cotton mesh that is not only breathable but extremely soft. Cut for a slim fit and finished with matching buttons and a chest pocket. A modern classic.
A modern take on the classic athletic sweatshirt, the iconic Sunspel sweatshirt has a neat fit and refined sweatshirt detailing, with its V-stitch insert and rib cuffs. It is made from an exceptionally soft loopback fabric, and its traditional internal loop stitch is warm and cosy. From town to country, it is a wardrobe must-have and, as The Gentleman’s Journal describe, “only gets better with age“.
“This isn’t your ordinary pair of cotton underwear.” (Men’s Health). In 1947 when Sunspel introduced the boxer short to Britain, they also perfected the design and with only a few minor tweaks, they are still producing the iconic boxer shorts to their original specification. Overhaul your underwear drawer with these fundamentals.
A “summer scent essential” and epitomising “olfactive escapism” according to British Vogue, Neroli Sun is a new cologne for both men and women designed by leading perfumer, Lyn Harris. Sunspel Neroli Sun captures the essence of a carefree, sun-dappled English summer: a blend of sharp, sunny citrus fruits, infused with aromatic rosemary, lavendar and angelica, sitting on a base of classic green vetiver, sultry patchouli and beachy sea moss. Crisp, modern and perfectly balanced, Neroli Sun can be worn at any time of day, the quintessential staple for the modern gentleman.
