John Smedley

Founded in 1784 by Lundy John Smedley, British label John Smedley is the oldest manufacturing company in the world. This family-owned brand has come to worldwide acclaim through its fine knitwear products, which are still crafted by hand today. Across our collection of John Smedley garments, you can explore a rich range of polo shirts, jumpers and cardigans.

Merino wool, cashmere and pure cotton are a few of the soft fabrics you'll find throughout the selection. These raw materials are sourced a year before construction, with each stage of creation carefully monitored by hand. The premium-quality fabrics are then made into contemporary designs, from slim-fitting pullovers to softly tailored cardigans. Enveloping shawl collars, pared-back crewnecks and stand collars provide smart finishes. You'll also spot luxury details – think pearlescent and intricate ribbed trims – dotted throughout the lineup.

John Smedley's colour palette draws inspiration from the British countryside. Bold greens capture the spirit of Kielder forest in Northumberland, while fresh blues encapsulate the dazzling peaks of British mountain ranges. For real vibrancy, opt for a pink or purple knit, reminiscent of berried woodland clearings or heather-covered heathland. Look out for eco-conscious pieces with the Project Earth banner amongst the collection.
