Cut with a classic fit and crafted from our signature Q75 warp knit fabric –the same fabric that we use for our iconic Riviera Polo Shirt – this T-Shirt is supremely soft, lightweight, breathable and above all, comfortable to wear. The subtle contrast colour piping around the neck of the T-Shirt lends an elegant, athletic feel to this easy-to-wear style.
Q (for Quality) 75 was invented by Peter Hill, the grandson of Sunspel’s founder, in an effort to find an alternative to the relatively heavy pique cotton fabrics that were used for polo shirts in the 1950s. He wanted something that would keep him cool and comfortable in the hot summer sun of the Riviera, so he turned to the expertise of the local lace-making industry in Long Eaton, Nottingham to develop his idea. The result was a fine mesh fabric that was second to none, standing the test of time to always be used for our Riviera Polo Shirt – and now our Rivera T-Shirt.
