The men's v-neck jumper is one of the most hard-working garments in any gentleman’s wardrobe. Its ability to work as a standalone piece as well as a layering item makes it a true style staple.
The perfect men's v-neck should leave ample room to show off a neat tie knot when paired with a shirt for more formal occasions, whilst only revealing the slightest hint of collarbone when worn alone. The neckline should never drop deeper than the centre of your sternum, and ideally should sit at least a couple of inches north of that.
Here at John Smedley, we have spent decades perfecting the ultimate men's v-neck jumper; the Bobby. Celebrities including Idris Elba, James Nesbitt, Dermot O’Leary and Andi Peters have all been spotted wearing the Bobby, but it’s most notable fan includes James Bond. Worn by Daniel Craig in Bond movie, Skyfall, Bobby is our classic v-neck men’s jumper which has been meticulously crafted from our
signature extra-fine Merino wool. The easy fit cut and low v-neck makes it perfect for layering with a crisp shirt for a sharp twist on workwear, or worn with a t-shirt for a relaxed, off-duty, feel.
As with all our knitwear; we design, manufacture, and produce all our men’s v-necks in our factory in Lea Mills, Derbyshire. It’s been our home since 1784 and it’s where we combine traditional techniques with the latest technology to deliver you luxurious, hand-finished garment designed to stand the test of time.
Our men's v-neck offering doesn’t stop at the Bobby, though. We are also proud to have designed and created a full range of v-neck knitwear including cardigans, t-shirts,and waistcoats.
