John Smedley has a wide range of Jackets, Shirts and Polo Shirts all featuring collars. Collars have been used by John Smedley ever since Isis was launched to the menswear range in the 1930s. Today John Smedley has 6 different collar designs, ranging over more than 35 different garments- including three Womenswear garments.

John Smedley’s collars are knitted at our Lea Mills factory in Matlock, Derbyshire; as they always have been. John Smedley garments, such as Adrian have their collars knitted

separately to the rest of the garment and are stitched on afterwards, this ensures maximum quality and the utmost comfort.

The six collar styles that are crafted by John Smedley are: Fashioned Collar, Stand Collar, Sports Collar, Skipper collar, Shawl collar and Stand up Collar. The Fashioned Collar is the oldest collar that John Smedley still produces – this can be found on Isis and Finchley. The newest collar design that is knitted by John Smedley is the Sports Collar. This features on modern designs like Smooth and Scifresh.
