Sunspel's Woad Collection Takes Basics To A Luxe Level

Despite being those style go-tos – for a quick jog, for a coffee run, for a lazy, sun-yawning Sunday afternoon – we often relegate tees and sweatshirts to an afterthought.

They’re the condiments of our wardrobe. The proverbial bassist in our sartorial bands. 

We hear you: who wants to invest serious coin into a sweatshirt? Well, allow us to offer one worth your consideration.

Whereas most basics scream generic anonymity, Sunspel’s new woad collection is anything but.

A rapidly fading art, only a dwindling few craftspeople still practice woad dying. The process, which dip dyes by hand, means that no two tees (or sweatshirts) in Sunspel’s collection are alike. The sell? Ultra soft, ultra comfortable, one-of-a-kind basics. 

Let’s be honest: this isn’t about raw functionalism. It ain’t about frugality. It’s about elevating your wardrobe – about knowing that you could have gone 2 for £12, yet chose to treat yourself. 

Go on, then. You deserve it. (Probably.)
