Paul Smith (fashion designer)

Sir Paul Smith, RDI, (born in Beeston, Nottingham on July 5, 1946) is an English fashion designer, whose business and reputation is founded upon his menswear. He is both commercially successful and highly respected within the fashion industry.

Smith was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000, after nearly three decades as a menswear icon. His collections of clothing and accessories for both men and women are usually identified by the presence of Smith's multistripe signature somewhere on each item.

Paul Smith's career in fashion design began after having been injured in a terrible cycling accident.. Six months in hospital followed and during this time Paul made some new friends. After leaving hospital he arranged to meet them all at a local pub that was popular with art students. It was then Paul knew he wanted to be part of this colourful world of ideas and excitement. Paul started to take evening classes for tailoring and with the help of his then girlfriend (now wife) Pauline Denyer, who was an RCA fashion graduate, and a small amount of savings, he managed to open his first shop 10 Byard Lane, Nottingham in 1970. By 1976 Paul showed his first menswear collection in Paris, under the Paul Smith label. He gradually expanded the retail business, being the first fashion brand to open on Floral Street in London's Covent Garden in 1979, where his shop offered an eclectic combination of clothes and 'finds' for men which reflected his own magpie personality. In 1987 Smith opened his first shop in New York, 108 Fifth Avenue. The international growth of his business began and most famously in Japan, where his British designs have been particularly popular, while he expanded into three adjacent stores on Floral Street. A converted town-house in Notting Hill, London opened in 1998 and is now his flagship shop, with the company's operational heart remaining between Nottingham and London. In 1998 Paul showed his first women's collection at London Fashion Week, the women's mainline collection continues to this day.

Most recently, within the last 2 years Smith has opened shops in Bangalore, Leeds, Antwerp, Los Angeles and another shop in London. As well as a brand new warehouse building in Nottingham.

Smith remains fully involved in the business; designing the clothes, choosing the fabrics, approving the shop locations and overseeing every development within the company. Paul Smith also has impressive and diverse showrooms in London, Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo.

The success of Smith's business has been put down to his understanding of his dual roles of both designer and retailer; the success of his designs is attributed to his combination of the classic and the quirky. and which allows men to buy relatively traditional (and hence commercially popular) designs that offer a 'twist' of individuality.

Today there are many different collections; Paul Smith, Paul Smith Blue, Paul Smith Black, PS by Paul Smith, Paul x, Paul Smith Jeans, Paul Smith London, R.Newbold (Japan only), Paul Smith Accessories, Paul Smith Shoes, Paul Smith Fragrance, Paul Smith Watches, Paul Smith Furniture and ‘things’. Designed in Nottingham and London, the Paul Smith collections are primarily produced in England and Italy while the fabrics used are mainly Italian, French and British.

Paul Smith's collections are wholesaled to many different countries and he now has 14 shops in England. Paul Smith shops are found in London, Nottingham, Leeds, Antwerp, Paris, Milan, Moscow, St. Petersburg, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, San Francsisco, Cape Town, Istanbul, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, The Philippines, Korea, Kuwait, UAE – and over two hundred throughout Japan.

Paul Smith (quarterback)

Paul Smith (born July 2, 1984 in Midwest City, Oklahoma) is an American football quarterback who is a practice squad player for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League. He was signed by the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Tulsa.

In 2006, Smith was tagged as one of Conference USA's top quarterbacks in preseason, along with such players as future Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, and was widely recognized as the leader and face of the Tulsa football program. In Tulsa's scheme, Smith threw many screen passes to running backs Tarrion Adams, Courtney Tennial, and wide receiver Ryan Bugg. The Golden Hurricane jumped out to a stellar 7-1 start with the inside track on a second straight West Division championship, but the team experienced a breakdown amid turmoil resulting from rumors of teams trying to woo away coach Steve Kragthorpe. Tulsa lost its contest against Utah in the Armed Forces Bowl 25-13, making their season record stand at 8-5.

In 2007, Smith led the Golden Hurricane to a 10-4 record and a win in the 2008 GMAC Bowl while also winning the 2007 Conference USA player of the year award In 2007, Smith won the Wuerffel Trophy which goes to the top humanitarian in college football and was a finalist for the Draddy Trophy. He was also selected to play in the 2008 Cornerstone Hula Bowl, where he passed for 47 yards and ran for the game's first two touchdowns for the winning Aina (East) team.

A three-year starter with the Golden Hurricane, Smith threw a combined 82 touchdown passes and 34 interceptions while taking his team to 3 straight bowl appearances. Smith holds the NCAA record with 14 consecutive games passing for more than 300 yards.

Although Smith was not picked in the 2008 NFL Draft, he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 28. Jacksonville immediately waived their third-team quarterback, allowing Smith to take his spot on the scout team. Although possessing many skills sought in a good quarterback, Smith's career prospects in the NFL are hampered by his size and mobility.

On July 31, 2008 Smith was waived so the Jaguars could sign free agent guard Chris Liwienski. On August 31, 2008, Smith was re-signed to the Jaguars' practice squad.
