Still struggling to understand the point of the Lemaire x Sunspel collab
Going to be honest and say, after skimming through the selection on Matches, that I am struggling to understand the point of Sunspel full stop.

Lemaire makes so much more sense to me, even if I'm just enjoying it vicariously.

Sunspel makes the best cotton tee bar none. I went through a tee phase and have a cotton tee from basically any designer brand you can think of (Lemaire, Jil, MMM, DH, Lanvin, MH (made my Sunspel)...). Sunspel tees are incredibly light weight without being sheer, quick to dry and durable

Have you tried any John smedley sea island cotton ones? Currently beating any Sunspel I’ve tried, though tbf they do tend to be a slightly different style.

If anyone is in London btw this weekend, Sunspel have a sample sale Fri-Sun at The Box

I haven't, sea island is too expensive for a full wardrobe rotation. I struggle to justify cotton tees over $100; though I'm sure they're much better.

I should specify, this is the tee I'm referring to. I've had other Sunspel tees, even the Riviera, that has disappointed me.

If any is going to the sample sale, wouldnt mind a proxy

Sunspel seems like a weird thing to not understand. It’s just a company that makes basics and has been around for a long time. They also make the basics for a fair amount of designers (as in, it’s just Sunspel with a designer tag put in place).

Also, this pyjama set is Sunspel so.....

I have been very happy with everything I have from Sunspel, including Tees, polos, knits, and boxers. Top notch stuff which lasts.

OK. So it's one of those things you need to actually handle. Just didn't look that inspiring for the price on Matches. I can freely admit that if NMWA started carrying it, I'd probably decide it's very nice. And I suppose I have enough regard for Lemaire to figure that the collaboration means something positive.

So, carry on Sunspel.

i used to wear sunspel boxer briefs a long time ago and they felt so good until they went and changed the waistband on them

i emailed them said why the fuck would you do that and they said they hadn't changed anything, i was like bro i have a new old one in a box still and new ones are trash

i do have the tees and like jg said they are great but i only wear white, gray and black tees

You do know they do not own factory (I'm assuming as no one does)? The 1-3 factories they're producing boxers at probably changed their orders/providers...

In case anyone's interested in the large leather bum bag...

eBay
Grailed

Amazing bag, but I'm after the smaller version (so I'm also open to trades if anyone has the small croissant in black or brown leather and wants something roomier).
