John Smedley


Established in 1784, John Smedley is 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. The brand’s iconic style spans from its ‘Mainline Collection’, including the bestselling polo shirt, unchanged since 1932 right through to our recent unisex capsule ‘Singular’. John Smedley strives to produce the highest quality garments with a contemporary look that will transcend generations. It uses only the finest quality materials including John Smedley’s Sea Island cotton, extra-fine Merino wool, cashmere and silk. Each garment is carefully created using 1.5 km of the finest yarn, 1.2 million stitches, 230 years of experience and the skilled hands of 50 British craftsmen. The brand is proud to have “Made in Great Britain” on the tag of every garment it makes. John Smedley has remained a British, family-run business, now managed by Ian Maclean, an eight-generation member of the Smedley family.
