Every time we mention John Smedley on this site, it’s usually greeted with one or two moans about the price. Thing is, you get what you pay for. But if you aren’t willing to pay that price, you can always check out these ASOS long-sleeved polo shirts.
These aren’t Smedleys, they’re probably not made in the UK and the lightweight cotton isn’t going to match up to the yarn that Smedley uses. But the shirts here have the ‘look’, even if the collars look a little small.
They also have three-button fasting, ribbed collar and cuffs, a regular fit and a colour choice of three colours (all pictured here). They also have one other big thing on their side (aside from no branding) – they retail for just £20.
As I said, you probably get what you pay for, but if finances are tight, they are probably worth a look.
