Made in England from our signature 100% long-staple cotton, our classic Long Sleeve T-Shirt is a year-round staple. Combining a clean aesthetic with a classic fit, it looks great worn simply with jeans or layered under a fine merino sweaters on cooler days.
We've made t-shirts in England for decades – a proud part of our heritage that we like to think gives us a certain expertise when it comes to knowing exactly what it takes to make the best t-shirts possible.
The perfect fit is essential, as is the perfect fabric. We make the majority of out t-shirts from our Q (for Quality) 82 fine cotton jersey that is a descendent of the original lisle cotton Sunspel used on some of the earliest t-shirts ever made.
It is constructed from long-staple cotton fibres that are twisted together to create a strong, smooth thread that won’t tangle through being worn or washed. This twist makes it a supremely clean yarn, though we still pass it over a flame to remove any overhanging ends. The yarn is then double-spun to remove any remaining impurities. It might be said that this is rather a laborious process, but we think that the resulting jersey that is not only long lasting, but also the lightest and the softest that we have ever felt, is worth every effort.
