Our Cellulock Shorts are a lighter-weight alternative to our signature Loopback Shorts. The fit is relaxed without being baggy, and the drawstring waistband and side seam pockets are in keeping with the sporting origins of the style. Team with the matching Cellulock T-Shirt for an elegant take on athletic style.
Cellulock is our most recent fabric innovation, developed and produced in England from an original sample found in the Sunspel archive.
It was first designed for undergarments – once the mainstay of the Sunspel business –to offer a unique combination of hygiene, warmth and lightness. It used wool on the exterior and cotton on the interior; combing the best qualities of two very different fabrics to offer a solution to one very definite need: comfort.
When we were developing the modern version of cellulock, the need for comfort was still at the forefront of our minds, but this time we wanted to create the perfect outer layer. The art of layering has become a cornerstone of modern dressing and the double-faced structure of cellulock makes it the ideal weight for year-round wear. We used a premium 100% long-staple cotton for both the interior and the exterior of the fabric, for wardrobe essentials that bridge the gap between two of our favourite time-honoured staples: the T-Shirt and the Sweatshirt.
