John Smedley have been designing, creating, and manufacturing the world’s finest knitwear at their factory in Lea Mills, Derbyshire, since 1784. Over a period of 230 years, many of our designs have remained relatively unchanged save a few careful refinements at the hands of 50 fine British craftsmen.
On this page, you will find a hand-picked edit of our most popular men's best knitwear. Ranging from our iconic Bobby in black jumper to our classic Adrian polo shirt; if you only purchase one piece of knitwear per season, make it one of these.
The garments on this page are customer favourites; purchased time again. They all boast timeless silhouettes and colour palettes which transcend seasons and trends
effortlessly. Whether you’re using them to build a capsule wardrobe, or simply to add more versatile pieces to your existing repertoire, our bestsellers are long-lasting, stylish, investments in your personal style.
From jackets and pullovers to cardigans and polo shirts, there is something for everyone and for every occasion with our men’s best knitwear. Don a slipover or pullover over a dinner jacket and smart slacks for a more formal occasion or unwind in our loungewear or a t-shirt with a pair of denim.
