The Pick: Sunspel long-sleeve polo shirt

Meet the fine-cotton, precisely cut, cross-seasonal piece your wardrobe has been waiting for

Ah, transitional dressing. The art of mastering a look that will keep you warm against the autumn chill but not leave you red-faced and perspiring come late afternoon isn’t an easy one to learn.

There is, however, a simple trick that can always be relied on: layering. The key is to invest in quality, versatile staples that can be worn together to create a flexible outfit and few fit the bill better than Sunspel’s long-sleeve polo shirt.

Crafted in the same 100% long-staple cotton as Sunspel’s short-sleeved summer counterparts, its slightly denser mid-weight knit is ideal for wearing underneath an overshirt or jacket on cool evenings or on its own during warmer weather. And, having been founded in 1860, Sunspel has been nailing the quality basic for more than 150 years, so you know you can trust it to do right by your wardrobe.

Pair with tailored trousers or chinos for an effortless casual Friday look or wear with shorts or denim at the weekends. This really is the ideal go-anywhere item.

Gentleman’s Journal says:
“If they’re good enough for James Bond, then they’re good enough for us. Sunspel has mastered the stylish essential, and this timeless design will never age. Everything is simple, restrained and cut in a practical, yet effortlessly luxurious way.”
