Sunspel Denim


Luxury basics masters Sunspel, founded over 150 years ago have taken the plunge into denim, and after plenty of research a premium 14oz Japanese rope dyed denim was sourced for the jean.

As we all know Japanese denim is recognised worldwide for its quality and rope dying is a time intensive process, favoured because it builds a rich, even depth of indigo colour, meaning that the denim will age well.


Sunspel’s jeans are rinse washed for softness and to minimise shrinkage, and come in a classic straight leg cut. They are handmade in the UK by craftspeople from Japanese denim, the jeans make use of subtle detailing true to Sunspel’s ethos with; custom branded buttons and rivets, bar-tack branding, and pockets featuring a subtle print borrowed from the Sunspel archive.
