The search for the perfect jeans might just be over
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.
