Here at Sunspel comfort, quality, and innovation have always been paramount in the design of our products. That’s why it made perfect sense for us to partner up with Iffley Road this season, creating an exclusive capsule collection of running wear that merges innovative performance fabrics with a refined aesthetic and, of course, a focus on style and comfort.
Iffley Road, a British running wear brand, takes its name from the track in Oxford where Roger Bannister ran the first sub-four minute mile in 1954. For both brands heritage is hugely important, and so the collection takes references from both the brightly striped sportswear of the Amateur Athletics Association and the substantial archive of mid 20th Century sportswear and underwear at Sunspel’s factory in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire.

Crafted from a mix of Iffley Road’s patented sweat wicking performance fabrics and Sunspel’s signature hand picked, long-staple cotton, the garments are realised in classic shapes with an impeccable attention to detail in the design. The true aim of the collaboration is not just to produce elevated sportswear, but to offer a capsule collection that is perfectly at home in the wardrobe of the modern man – elegant, versatile, durable, and, most importantly, comfortable.
The sweat-wicking properties of this soft pique T-Shirt make it an ideal addition to your workout wardrobe, but the bold colourblock design and classic cut mean you’re just as likely to want to add this vivid number to your regular T-Shirt roster. Pair it with straight leg jeans and simple white tennis shoes for an easy, everyday look, or pick up a pair of the matching shorts to spruce up your gym style.
This Polo Shirt may be crafted from performance fabric but, when it’s cut to the same block as our iconic Riviera Polo Shirt, you know this is no ordinary sports top. By all means wear it on the golf course or the tennis court, but slip a dark denim jacket on top with a slick pair of chinos and it becomes a sophisticated option for day or night.
A quick drying, lightweight fabric combined with sharp, stylish design touches make these technical shorts a versatile option, whether you’re wearing a pair on the track, the beach or the street. Designed to be the perfect partner to the T-Shirt and Polo Shirt, these shorts will look equally as good with a classic white T-Shirt and a pair of leather tennis shoes.
