I Spy Smedley

Paul Weller not wearing one but TWO John Smedley sweaters, he really does look the bizz. Weller has styled his Blackwell cardigan in Vintage Denim with the 1002HGRB shirt, a cracking combination. Paul completed this look with ‘Stanhope’ loafers from Delicious Junction, a brand that credit the relationship between music and fashion to the very heart of their business, definitely worth checking them out.

The Devlin wears Smedley

Devlin wearing Eustace in Engine Blue

This should have been posted a few weeks back but we were chuffed to bits when we spotted Devlin wearing Smedley at Radio One’s Big Weekend. Not only did he smash his set but looked the bizz. Devlin wore style ‘Eustace’ in Engine Blue, made from John Smedley’s Merino Jerseywear and when performing with Jessie J, style ‘Tristan’ one of Spring Summer’s Miami inspired pattern. For a top to toe look – pair ‘Tristan’ with matching socks ‘Alvin’.

If you haven’t yet tried our Merino Jerseywear, it holds different qualities to our extra-fine Merino Wool. Made with the same traceable fibres as Merino wool, the same care and attention to detail goes into every garment. The various pieces of the garment are cut and sewn together with cover seaming and over locking. This produces Jerseywear that is still of a fine knit, however is not with the same appearance as knitwear. The end result is a light garment that makes it perfect for layering or teaming up with your favourite John Smedley knitwear garments from the main collection. Merino Jerseywear is machine washable when following the appropriate product care.

Style on Stage

Yes, I confess my ‘guilty pleasure’ is X factor! I love music, performance and a great singing voice, can transform a Saturday evening.

As my colleague just said when  a man or woman  picks up an instrument (especially a guitar) and plays and sings so beautifully , what is not to love about them.

So imagine your favourite X factor performer takes to the stage and does all of the above, plus has great taste in clothes. Matt’s John Smedley Bobby vee neck in Charcoal,( I am sure it was) I hope helped to keep him comfortable and confident on stage- already our winner.

It was great to see the reformation of The Libertines last month, especially as we know Pete Doherty is a HUGE John Smedley fan. It was our honour to supply Pete with our fabulous knits, ensuring he stayed stylish on stage. Pete likes to keep it low key with classic styles in Midnight and Black. If you’re after the look, try style Spyder.

Why Settle for Anything Less?

Why Settle for Anything Less? We’ve all said that to ourselves on the odd occasion, I know I do when buying my new knitwear for the season – there’s only one place to look really! And, I’m sure this question was recently asked by Robbie Williams (or his “in-the-know stylist”) as he seems to be sporting one of our Polo Shirts in his latest video for “Shame“. We know Robbie is a lover of all things British, and can only salute him on this latest style choice!

Indie Rock outfit The Courteeners are currently touring their latest album around the UK, and what better to ensure they’re looking ultra stylish on stage, than a couple of John Smedley pieces? Lead singer Liam Fray teamed a Boris T-shirt in Navy with a red neck-tie to create this effortlessly cool look.

The rest of the band are huge Smedley fans, often choosing pieces from our latest menswear collection for their stage performances. Needless to say, the gig was a huge success, in the sound and style stakes.
