This new development is inspired by fabrics found in the Sunspel archive. Knitted on the same type of machine used to create the iconic Riviera Polo, the two-tone cotton gives the jersey a subtle speckled appearance. With working cuffs and taped back neck seam, this substantial style is perfect for throwing on over a T-Shirt and chinos for a look that balances smart and casual effortlessly.
We have been making Polo Shirts since the 1950s when Peter Hill, the grandson of Sunspel’s founder, Thomas A. Hill, created the Riviera Polo Shirt to keep him cool in the hot summer sun. In the decades since, we have developed a whole range of Polo Shirts, refining where necessary, but always staying true to Hill’s original vision of offering excellent comfort and fit.
