70 years ago, John Hill, the great-grandson of Sunspel’s founder, brought classic American underwear styles back to Great Britain that included the boxer short.

To celebrate this fashion milestone, Sunspel has re-issued this staple item from its archive, and promised it will be the finest item of underwear you will ever own.

Constructed in a way only Sunspel can, with design that is luxurious in its simplicity, the boxers feature an elasticated waist band and shell button detailing.

Cut in a Sea Island Cotton poplin renowned for its association with high quality products, the underwear is available in Sunspel shops and online at sunspel.com.
