The Sunspel Riviera Polo in Navy

The most instantly recognisable Sunspel item worn by Daniel Craig’s Bond is the navy Riviera Polo Shirt. Its lightweight, warp-knit cotton material known as Q75 was invented in the 1950s by Sunspel owner Peter Hill, specifically for the hot summer sun of the Italian Riviera.

For Casino Royale (2006), costume designer Lindy Hemming worked with Sunspel to tailor the polo shirt for Craig, shortening the arms and making slight tweaks to complement Daniel Craig’s physique and allow ease of movement in action scenes. Casual and contemporary, distinctively British and effortlessly stylish, the Riviera Polo Shirt became an instant hit across the world as an achievable ‘James Bond look’.


The Riviera Polo Shirt, reinvented for sport

Made from a quick-drying technical fabric, the new Riviera Activewear polo is ideal for exercise, whether you play golf, tennis or just want to stay stylish when working out.

It’s cut to the same fit as the iconic Riviera polo shirt.
