John Smedley

We are creators of the World’s Finest Knitwear. Established in 1784, we are the oldest manufacturing factory in the world, crafting beautiful, high quality garments that are designed to last, made in Britain and distributed the world over.


We only use the finest quality materials including John Smedley’s Sea Island cotton, extra fine Merino wool, cashmere and silk. Each garment is carefully created using 1.5km of the finest yarn, 1.2 million stitches, 230 years of experience and the skilled hands of 50 British craftsmen.


Our iconic style spans from our “Mainline Collection”, including our best selling polo shirt, unchanged since 1932 right through to our recent unisex capsule “Singular”. We strive to produce the highest quality garments with a contemporary look that will transcend generations.
