Sunspel is an iconic British clothing label founded by Thomas A. Hill in 1860. Hill began by designing and manufacturing simple, everyday clothing and revolutionary gentlemen's underwear from beautiful cottons rather than traditional wool. This pioneering idea, and Hill's use of impeccable hand craftsmanship, made Sunspel an instant classic. The label's fame was accelerated when, in 1985, Nick Kamen wore Sunspel boxer shorts in the notorious Levi's launderette commercial. Sumptuous cashmeres and wools are the hallmarks of Sunspel knitwear. Superior fits and expert cuts create sweaters and cardigans that will lend timeless style to any man's outfit.
