John Smedley is responsible for producing quality knitwear year on year. With tradition at the heart of every piece, this 225-year old English brand remains at the top of its game.
Staying true to its age-old method, this season’s collection displays a vast range of quality made knits, suitable for anyone. By using New Zealand merino wool and the brand’s own Sea Island cotton, the result is not only comfortable, but also long lasting.
This range consists of all the essentials that any man could require. Lightweight pullovers, shirts and cardigans are available in an array of colours and with varying patterns. A particular piece with desirable detailing is the hallam shirt. Contrasting neck and pocket tip details add a current twist to an otherwise simple piece. Generously available in 4 colours, it is both versatile and, with its soft sea cotton fabric, comes with guaranteed comfort.
A slightly more fixed piece that still retains a touch of the cool/casual divide is the Esben shirt. Likewise to the Hallam Shirt, this piece has a contrasting neck detail, yet it also displays a cable-patterned front. This not only adds a welcome formal touch but also makes a subtle style statement, ideal for those dressers who wish to be experimental – but not necessarily with colour.
Having had 225 years to perfect its craft, John Smedley is the go-to brand for traditionally made, quality knitwear that is both comfortable and timeless.
