After perfecting the classic tee, polo shirt and boxer short, Luxury English brand Sunspel has launched the latest product in their line of men’s essentials: the Made In England Jean.
This marks the first time the brand has delved into the world of denim in its 150-year history. Sunspel’s head designer Pascale Pinxt says that creating the jeans felt like a natural next step in their mission to offer customers the best in menswear basics.
“Sunspel prides itself on providing quality cornerstones of the wardrobe,” she remarks. “We knew denim was a key component to any wardrobe and a natural pairing with our signature white t-shirt.”
When asked what she believes makes for the perfect jean, she succinctly replied, “Fabric, cut, and construction.” To answer to these three criteria, the designers at Sunspel constructed a straight-leg pant out of 14-oz. selvedge denim from Japan. The denim undergoes a special rope dyed technique, which lends it a particularly rich indigo hue.
“We selected a simple rinse wash to the jean, which means it retains a lot of its dye and looks smart—even in color. That works best for us as our look is cleaner and more refined,” comments Pinxt.
Though the jeans accrue a certain worn-in character over the course of several washes, as a result of this dying process, the true-to-fit jeans also manage to retain their dark color. The effect is a jean that’s modern yet stylishly classic, all while hearkening back to the brand’s English roots.
“These jeans have a really easy fit, so it works well across a range of customers ,” says Pinxt. “We see our customers dressing it up with a shirt and our unstructured blazer, or styled casually rolled up and teamed with our signature white t-shirt.”
No matter how they’re worn, the Made In England Jean ($325) makes for the perfect staple in any man’s closet.
