THE RIVIERA POLO SHIRT

Designed in the 1950s for the heat of the French Riviera.
Tailored in 2006 for Daniel Craig as James Bond.

The Riviera Polo Shirt in Navy, Cotton Twill Drawstring Trouser In Tobacco

The Riviera Polo Shirt’s lightweight, supremely soft warp-knit cotton mesh, known as Q75, was invented in the 1950s by Sunspel owner Peter Hill for the hot summer sun of his French Riviera holidays. It has been a Sunspel staple ever since but was elevated to iconic status in 2006 when it was tailored for Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. Casual and contemporary, distinctively British and effortlessly stylish, the Riviera Polo became an instant hit across the world. The FT’s How to Spend It described it as “the easiest way to look like 007 without having to wear a tuxedo.”

ORGANIC COTTON TOWELLING

Sunspel’s cotton towelling is exceptionally soft and luxurious. Only the highest quality fibres are selected, before being combed to remove imperfections. The result is a fabric that’s durable yet much lighter and more breathable than ordinary towelling, making it perfect for summer. Crafted from 100% organic cotton yarn, it’s also gentler on the planet.
