When packing for a summer holiday, there’s a lot to consider; baggage limit, temperature, whether you’ll be slothing by the pool or gallivanting around tourist sites, and backups for when you spill a strawberry daiquiri on your white shirt. British menswear manufacturer Sunspel has been crafting everyday luxury clothing since 1860, meaning they’ve had over 150 summers to get it right.

The most common mistake is packing too little or too much - our Sunspel SS16 holiday guide covers the essentials, providing something for every situation. Sunspel specializes in everyday luxury items, timelessly designed capsule pieces that help build a wardrobe of staples.

These items stand the test of time, the Navy & White Stripe T-Shirt and Cotton Twill Harrington, for instance, are recognizable classic designs. Premium accessories supplement the ready-to-wear pieces; the Cutler & Gross Sunglasses honor an age-old frame, while the Sunspel archive inspired the Navy Men’s Leather Zip Wallet.
