"The best men’s underwear
in the world" —

“Not to be unduly emphatic, but CDLP makes the best men’s underwear in the world. Designed in Stockholm by Christian Larson and Andreas Palm, then made from Lyocell, rather than cotton, by a third generation family run factory in Portugal, the brand’s cult following is entirely justified. V chic, super comfy.”

CDLP innovation lab

A future-oriented approach is one of both innovation and constant re-evaluation. CDLPs Head of Innovation oversees multiple projects aiming to define what the future of the company and its products will be.


We are in the process of building traceability into our Lyocell garments, making use of the leaps provided by blockchain technology in recent years. In partnership with TextileGenesis™, this will allow us as well as our customers to transparently trace & manage the collection across the entire supply chain.


By converting all aspects of our swimwear to polyamide, which is what ECONYL® is composed of, they will become more easily recyclable, on an individual garment level after use and in partnership with ECONYL®, to whom we can return all claimed or wastage fabric to be horizontally recycled.

Extra Long Staple

Extra Long Staple cotton

In order to achieve the smooth handful and beautiful ageing of CDLP T-shirts, we use our own blend of Lyocell with Pima, a premium cotton whose long fibres result in exceptional softness and durability. Unfortunately, this cotton only comes from a small number of sources, none of which are located close to our factory in Portugal. For this reason, we are converting to organic ELS (Extra Long Staple) cotton, which shares the same attributes, and allows us to source our raw material closer to home.
