The Boxer Short
We’ve been making luxury men’s underwear since 1860. Sunspel’s own John Hill not only introduced the boxer short to Britain in 1947, he also perfected its design. This, together with our obsession with developing exceptional fabrics, make us confident that Sunspel boxer shorts are the best that you will ever wear.
Initially only available in America, it was Sunspel’s own John Hill who saw the opportunity in bringing the boxer short to the UK in 1947. Working from the Sunspel factory in Long Eaton, he refined the design to craft the boxer short as we know it today.
With just a few minor tweaks here and there, to this very day we produce our boxer shorts to the original specifications developed by John Hill.
