Who is Sunspel?
Sunspel is a British luxury brand that focuses on making simple, yet beautiful clothing from quality fabrics. The company was founded by Thomas A Hill back in 1860 and they’ve established themselves as a pioneer in British craftsmanship.
What I like the most about Sunspel is that their main focus is on quality, the one value that is of high priority here at Male Extravaganza as well. All of their clothes are made either in England or Portugal and they do not use cheap fabrics just to raise the ROI. Personally, I think they are a great example for everyone, even for bigger, more popular brands!

- the first brand to introduce the boxer short to the UK?
- they were chosen to design a polo shirt for Daniel Craig in James Bond Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace?
- they were one of the first companies to make underwear from soft, lightweight Egyptian cotton instead of wool?
- they’ve developed the world’s first t-shirts as we know them today?
