Handcrafted in our Long Eaton factory from our super-soft Sea Island cotton, these one button shorts embody our twin inspirations of classic British style and luxurious quality. Cut to the same fit as our classic one button short, they make a fantastic gift.
Sea Island is coveted as one of the world’s most luxurious materials. Grown and handpicked by a few dedicated experts in the Caribbean, it is the rarest type of cotton, making up only 0.0004% of the world’s cotton supplies. The cotton’s extra long staple length, fine uniform texture, silky lustre and great tensile strength allow it to be woven to the very highest yarn count; a highly skilled process that just a few weavers in the world are experienced in.
Here at Sunspel, our history with Sea Island cotton dates back several decades to a time when underwear was the mainstay of the company. Today, we work with expert spinners in Switzerland to weave our Sea Island cotton fabric and each garment is made by hand in very limited numbers by one expert seamstress in our Long Eaton factory. Our Sea Island underwear is the closest a man can get to the luxury of artisan craftsmanship for his everyday wear.
