I was just about to buy a pair of Zimmerli boxers, but they wanted £40.00 GBP for shipping...

My Perofil order finally arrived. I wanted to order from Cagi but they no longer ship to the UK so I went with Oscalito, they are almost as expensive as the Swiss brands...

Sunspel are not that great. There are tons of premium European brands:

Switzerland
Zimmerli as mentioned above.
Hanro
ISA
Calida
Germany
Novila - possibly even more luxurious than Zimmerli
Mey
France
Eminence
Spain
Zero Defects
Italy
Bresciani - In the top 5.
Oscalito
Julipet
Lisanza Uomo
Perofil
Cagi
Boglietti
Alpina
Olimpia
Ragno
Moretta
Liabel
Croatia
Kozo

The above all use luxury cotton such as Sea Island, Giza 45, Peruvian Pima, Giza (Giza 70, Giza 87, Giza 88, Giza 93), Mako (Giza 86, Giza 89, Giza 90) and Filo di Scozia.

These are mostly made in their own factories. I would avoid Boss, Calvin Klein, Armani etc. They are just made in the same factories as M&S.
To this should be added:

Italy
Felis
La Furlana - producing Filo di Scozia items.

Ireland
Vedoneire

Please keep us posted on your underwear journey.
I am not sure if that is sarcasm lol. But I currently have Hanro and Perofil, and Oscalito, Fenlis, and Vedoneire on the way. Novila and Zimmerli are on the wish list. The feeling of luxury super soft ELS cotton is amazing. Although I want to try Merino underwear too.

Both Del Boy and I will be reaching for the washing bowl this weekend. I shall be gentle hand washing my Filo Scozia boxers, whilst Del will be drowning another batch of kittens...
