Sunspel

In terms of heritage brands, few can match SUNSPEL in terms of either longevity or quality. Founded by THOMAS ARTHUR HILL in 1860, in NEWDIGATE, NOTTINGHAM, SUNSPEL has always stayed true to a philosophy to create simple, everyday clothing made from beautiful fabrics.

Widely credited as being responsible for some of the first t-shirts ever made, SUNSPEL were also the first brand to bring over boxer shorts from AMERICA. After experiencing the boom-time STATES of 1947, then boss JOHN HILL not only introduced the boxer short to BRITAIN, but also perfected its design. 

The near total collapse of world trade after the Great Depression of 1929 forced SUNSPEL to move from NOTTINGHAM to LONG EATON. They remain there to this day, still as committed as ever to making simple, beautiful garments.
