History of Sunspel 

Founded by Thomas Hill, Sunspel was first open for business in 1860. Stating out at his textile factory in Nottingham, Hill, the son of a hosiery and lace maker, used his fabric expertise to make lightweight, soft clothing in very fine cotton. His creation went on to established the luxury Sunspel underwear, which has now become synonymous with the brand. Some of the earliest garments made in the Newdigate factory included tunics and undershirts that were some of the first t-shirts ever made. By the end of The Great War Sunspel’s success enabled them to become one of the first companies to export to the Far East. Sunspel always kept up with modern ideas and even pioneered new ideas to their British consumer. The first Sunspel boxers were brought to Britain in 1947. Made from Sea Island cotton and designed for comfort, the boxer short offered a different style of underwear. It wasn’t until 1985 until Sunspel underwear became a global fashion piece, being publicised in a Levis Jeans advert.
