John Smedley Heritage

Established by Peter Nightingale and John Smedley in 1784 at Lea Mills, Matlock, Derbyshire, the John Smedley mill is the oldest manufacturing factory in the world. Quality and craftsmanship are at the heart of John Smedley's ethos; every garment is made and hand-finished in England from superior quality materials such as extra fine Merino Wool and Sea Island Cotton.

Since the early 1960s John Smedley has been synonymous with Mod sub-culture. John Smedley polo shirts and jumpers were worn by British style icons from The Beatles to Audrey Hepburn. The emphasis on quality over branding has ensured that John Smedley has remained a favourite among generations of Mods including the Modfather himself, Paul Weller.

Attention-to-detail and classic designs make John Smedley knitwear is as popular today as ever. These days you can spot John Smedley jumpers and polos on high profile figures including the Royal Family, Roger Federer and even James Bond (Daniel Craig in Skyfall). John Smedley has long been an official knitwear supplier to Buckingham Palace, and was awarded a Royal Warrant in 2013.

How to wear John Smedley

Excellent for layering, John Smedley Polo Shirts come in a range of collar styles. Team your polo with a blazer for a formal style, or tailored jeans and a casual jacket for a more relaxed look. If you're looking for a timeless garment choose the 'Dorset' (add hyperlink when the new ones come in) long-sleeved polo shirt. Knitted from extra fine Merino wool, the 'Dorset' polo shirt features a 3-button placket, Mod-style collar and ribbed cuffs/waistband; it comes in a range of stunning colours, from camel to indigo.

This season, look out for iconic John Smedley styles in a new distinctive colour palette. The handed-blended wool comes in seasonal hues such as Hepburn Smoke, Derwent Blue and Flare Orange. For colder days choose a roll-neck or turtle-neck John Smedley jumper in a simple block colour; or patterns and finishes from jacquard to boucle. Returning styles also include the 'Isis' polo shirt, alongside some elegant, new contemporary styles.
