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.

Excellent for layering, John Smedley polo shirts come in short or long-sleeved styles with a range of collar shapes.
