Our short sleeve crew neck t-shirt is a luxurious take on a timeless wardrobe essential. One of our most popular styles, it’s cut with a flattering, figure-skimming silhouette and is crafted from a premium long-staple cotton fabric for unparalleled comfort.
We’ve been making t-shirts for decades. In fact, Sunspel played a pivotal role in the development of the t-shirt as we know it today. This is a proud part of our heritage and something that we like to think gives us a certain expertise when it comes to knowing exactly what it takes to make the best t-shirt.
As with all of our products, fabric is of the utmost importance. The fabric that we use for our t-shirt is a unique jersey that is made from long-staple cotton. The cotton is handpicked to ensure that only the highest quality fibres are selected. These fibres are combed to remove imperfections, before being twisted together to create a strong, smooth, fine cotton thread that won’t tangle through being worn or washed. This twist makes it a much cleaner yarn, though we still pass it over a flame to remove any overhanging ends. It’s then double spun to remove any remaining impurities.
It might be said that this is something of a laborious process, but we think that the resulting jersey, which is not only long-lasting, but also the lightest and the softest that we have ever felt, is worth every effort.
The enduring appeal of the t-shirt can largely be attributed to its versatility. Pair a crisp white t-shirt with jeans, and the resulting look is as cool today, as it was at its inception in the 1950s. That said, a classic t-shirt worn with good tailoring is almost unbeatable when it comes to achieving effortless style.
