Established in 1857

L A Smith was established in 1857 in the heart of the City of London. During the 1860s and 1870s, the business grew to be one of London’s leading manufacturers of shirts, ties, cravats and gentlemen’s accessories. Since then, L A Smith has never lost its focus on ties, and remains the UK’s leading supplier of neckwear to the independent retailer. Alongside this, we have a trusted range of waistcoats, dress shirts, nightwear and accessories.

Our History

Sizing and Quality

We work hard to ensure that our products perform in every way. All our fabrics are tried and tested, and we try to ensure our sizing and fit rules are consistent and intuitive. Meanwhile, we are always looking for new products, as well as to rediscover timeless classics that have slipped out of the public consciousness, such as our very successful polyester and silk ‘Shantung’ fabrics.
