Ladies Long Jane’s

Long Janes, also called Long Johns for men, is a style of underwear with long legs which is perfect for the current winter chill.

Usually made from insulating fabrics such as wool or polyester to draw moisture away from the skin, they are perfect for wearing under your normal clothes for work or play, just to add that extra layer of warmth.

Long Jane’s and Johns originate from Matlock in Derbyshire at John Smedley’s Lea Mills, and they named the garment after the late 19th century heavyweight boxer John L Sullivan. They were originally used as loungewear then became popular as sleepwear.

We stock Long Jane’s in Black, Cream and White, including a heat trap range, with matching items also available.
