I'm looking to order some john smedley knitwear online but i'm unsure about the sizing of it. I have a 38" measured chest and like my knitwear to be fairly close fitting but not skinny tight. The smedley sizing chart says a 38-40 chest should wear a small but ive heard the smedley knitwear comes up quite small. In anyones experience should i go for a small or medium for a nice fit ? Does it stretch or shrink over time ? Thanks all

I own a number of JS jumpers and am a 38 reg - medium fits perfect.

The beauty of them is you can just sling them in the washing machine, line dry em and no need to iron.

Great wardrobe staple. ebay /tk maxx's where the bargains are found - not sure I'd pay UK retail at around £100.

Much appreciated Stoney. Cool

Not looking for anything major. Plain navy/black/grey v-neck or crew, just whatever they have. Can't argue with that kind of quality for H&M prices!

Sorry to bump an old thread, can anyone help me out? Looking for a v-neck cardigan (Neville, Blackwell & Bryn) in size M, do the outlets carry these?
