Got here via a search, where can I order Sunspel?
I have 3 of them. I'm a 36R in suits/jackets and 15 in shirts and the small fits me great. The fabric is amazing for summer, really airy. I ordered one when they first started making them and it was hemmed a bit shorter than the other 2 I own, I wish they had kept the shorter hem pattern.
Thanks for the info.
Just ordered the polo in Navy. Most expensive polo I heave bought. Hope I like it!
Anyone know where I can get the striped Sunspel t-shirt?
Which Sunspel color best complements dark blue jeans? Rivera in Navy or black?
Hi I was planning on ordering some sunspel t shirts shortly. On their website it states a 38-39" chest should wear a small, but on Mr. Porter the models with 39" chests are wearing a medium. Can anyone provide insight?
approx 40" chest
38R sport coat/suits
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 have a few. I have 42" shoulders and take a large. I love them but they are pricey. The material is great - breezy and soft without being flimsy. The collar is also really nice and soft, and doesn't shrivel like most polos. Basically a great sport shirt for summer.
I'm 38" and wear a medium. My Sunspel tee measures 20" pit to pit so a small would be skin tight.
Thanks I found this very helpful. Do any of you guys know the difference between a sunspel undershirt and a t shirt? Different material or cut? Thinner cotton?
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.
Have one of their 007, L, fits a bit tighter than an ordinary L and is SHORT! So if you are tall - think twice. The weave is nice, but developed some rips within a year of wear.
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.
Does anyone have Sunspel loopback hoodies or sweatshirts? Hows the quality and fit?
