John Smedley adds new Jumpers and Polo Shirts to its sales sites

By Stefano on January 7th, 2013

English label John Smedley, who might just be our favourite knitwear maker ever, have added a load of new jumpers and polo shirts to its sale site.

You’ll need to register to get in, but once you do there is a selection of very striking round and V neck sweaters in its sale reduced for £75 to just £40. The colours are very spring/early summer and include Nocturne (kind of purpley blue), Almond (a beige/white mix) and Dove Blue (which is classic light blue).

There are also some polo type shirts in the sale reduced in price by around 45% to around the £50 mark. There are long and short sleeved shirts available. The short sleeved ones are made from Merino Wool, while the long sleeved shirts from Sea Island Cotton.

As ever you’ll have to move quickly.

John Smedley in massive jumper/cardigan sale

By Stefano on December 28th, 2012

If you have never visited John Smedley’s discount store right next to their factory in Derbyshire you really should. They have lots of end of line items, slight seconds and more at very very cheap prices.

If you live a million miles from Derbyshire and still want to grab one of their wonderful sea island cotton cardigans or extra fine merino wool jumpers then you need to become a member of the brand’s discount scheme.

Every few weeks they have a new sale and the one that is going on at the moment includes some classic styles. You’ll have to move quickly as they only have limited stock left, but there’s a selection of Sea Island Cotton cardigans for sale all at half price-ish £50 rather than £95. The brand is also offering a selection of roll neck jumpers down from £85 to £42.

At their main site a load of knitwear is in the sale. Merino Wool jumpers and cardigans are retailing for around £100 which is a third off their original retail price. I have had my eye on this for some time.

Every man should own at least one John Smedley jumper.

Perfect summer layering: John Smedley Blue cardie

By Colin Chapman on April 7th, 2009

Smedley_Blue_Cardie.jpgThis is the point in the year when layering becomes essential. With your peacoat professionally cleaned and (hopefully) being relegated to the wardrobe until autumn, what you need now is some flexible options. One of my perennials is a Sea Island cotton cardigan by John Smedley. Heavier than the usually slinky Sea Island fare, this cardigan will keep the breeze at bay whilst allowing you to breathe comfortably during those sweaty Tube moments. I’ve literally had a black version of this cardie for years, actually re-dyeing it black when it starts to fade. It’s a great shape – short on the waist – with chunky, retro-looking buttons.

The version here is in a very now shade of blue that is cropping up everywhere – most notably at Jil Sander – and looks just perfect for summer. I had to pretty much line up to try on this blue version at Selfridges recently, with all who spotted it cooing over the gorgeous blue shade – fetchingly named BlueEyedBoy.

Teamed with a cotton scarf in an ethnic print, you’re all set to react to our unpredictible weather like an expert.
