Now Online: Fred Perry



A Brief History

The man behind this iconic brand remains the last British Tennis Player to have won Wimbledon, and one of only 6 players to have one all four grand slam events. Fred Perry remains one of the worlds greatest tennis players of all times.




The history behind the man and his brand is interesting, particularly for anyone who loves the game of Tennis. His humble background as the son of a cotton spinner was not the sort of background which tennis players came from in those times. Fred Perry was the first commoner to take on the Tennis Elite and beat them mercilessly. 



The brand started with a simple antiperspirant device worn around the wrist invented by Austrian footballer Tibby Wegner in 1940, this device became the sweatband. The pair became partners and soon were creating Polo-shirts that out competed all other tennis shirt brands of the day.


The 1960's


Fred Perry the brand moved from Tennis to British pop culture and pretty soon the 1960's saw a wave of mods from England to Italy sporting Vespas, Lambretta's, and Fred Perry Polo's. 

Behind the Scenes






We like our Made in England and Made in Japan Laurel collection.

Sale Feature: John Smedley 20% off

'A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.'

Hardy Amies



Shop men's and women's John Smedley



From underwear to outerwear
"John Smedley is 225 years old with origins in fine underwear manufacture. Our values remain the same as they were then: to create contemporary knitwear from high quality materials. In 1922 we introduced the luxurious John Smedley's Sea Island Cotton and 10 years later, in 1932, we introduced the first in what would become a long line of iconic outerwear garments. Isis and Leander were both made from John Smedley's Sea Island Cotton and remain staple, stylish pieces in our summer collections."


"John Smedley designs and manufactures at Lea Mills, our Derbyshire mill, with designers working as part of, not away from, the factory floor. We take their creativity and use technology and craftsmanship to innovate, push boundaries and ultimately, create luxurious knitwear. We now use extra-fine Merino wool alongside John Smedley's Sea Island Cotton to create almost all of our knitwear. Together they allow us to create garments of the highest quality."






Over the years a number of high profile customers have added John Smedley to their wardrobes. Well-known heroes of the James Bond and Mission Impossible films have worn our garments on and off the screen. Our knitwear was also featured in the 2009 film for Chanel, Coco avant Chanel. See our News section for more appearances by John Smedley.

New Arrivals: The Laundress





When we first found The Laundress we immediately fell in love with the packaging. Once we got talking to the founders, Gwen and Lindsey, we realized that the products that they create are more then just eye candy.


The Laundress Stain Brush is an amazing tool for helping to keep your clothes looking fresh and new. The natural horse hair bristles are gentle enough to use on cottons and linens without causing damage. When the brush is used in combination with The Laundress Stain Bar or Stain Solution it gets cuff and collar stains out no problem. With these items in your arsenal you can wear your favourite white shirts with raw denim without worry about the transferring indigo staining.



The Laundress is based in New York City and their products are made in the U.S.A
Keep your clothes smelling fresh and make ironing a more enjoyable experience with The Laundress Ironing Water.

If you want to keep your dark clothes looking like new get The Laundress Darks Detergent and avoid faded, drab colours.

Fabric Fresh is available in 8 ounces and 2 ounces. Unlike commercial products designed to cover odors, Fabric Fresh actually breaks down the bacteria that causes odors to help eliminate them. If you have a pet you'll love how this product works on your furnishings.

All of The Laundress scents are natural, non toxic, hypo-allergenic and each product does exactly what it says it should do. If you love your clothes and want to keep them looking like new The Laundress can help you do just that.
