very good fit in almost everything in Medium
sunspel t-shirt medium as good as it gets.
I took measurements some time ago:
if it helps, I have a Hanes Fit-T in Large, which fits similar to Sunpel in Medium... other than that, I'm mostly a Medium...
I'm 38" and wear a medium. My Sunspel tee measures 20" pit to pit so a small would be skin tight.
The Sunspel tops are quite short to begin with and shrink a lot in length. I am 6 3 with a 46 chest and XL is perfect for a couple of months, but then it barely covers the belt in front and will expose the back while seated. My only Sunspel XXL is a Riviera V-neck T-shirt and it is still perfect in length but a bit too wide over the belly. The perfect solution would be to have a one size smaller poor relative to give the tops to after 6 months.
Has anybody found some longer tops from Sunspel?
I only have a V-neck from the underwear collection. It has beautiful deep scoop, but is too wide over the belly, almost A frame. The normal V-necks hardly differ from the O-necks, maximum one inch, but more probably half an inch. Sunspel have a lot of thin fabrics in their normal collection, as well. Look for jersey weave.
The boxers are in great fabric and execution, but here the problem is the inverse, they are a bit too long and will often creep up over the pants if not carefully stretched down before buckling up.
I have one Sunspel merino sweater and it was quite low in quality, especially compared to my Barrie sweaters.
It looks interesting but, I will stick with my RL custom fit for polo. Been wearing them for years (and I mean years.... since I was 6 years old) and never got any problem with them. I have to say that it kind of sucks that they have moved the production line from the US Virgin Island to Thailand.
