What inspired Fred, also inspired the tennis players around him. And then went on to inspire generations of rebels, musicians, film-makers, and of course, more sports stars.
Throughout all of these subcultural involvements you can find the Laurel Wreath, one of the most iconic fashion symbols there has been. You can recognise it across the room, across the dance floor, or across the football stadium.
Fred Perry finds a home and sits well on any member of any walk of life.
Fred Perry have dipped back into the archives to give a well deserved rebirth to some of their classic pieces.
Made with the same thought and care as the original, and crafted from the same fabrics, and colours. The Reissue Collection focuses on some of the brand’s retro styles which perfectly find a place amongst contemporary style. Further enforcing the timeless moldability of the Fred Perry styling.
The Knitted Stripe Long Sleeved Polo is an ideal form of a retro/contemporary crossover. This knitted tennis shirt is constructed from a blend of cotton and acrylic, made in Italy in a slim fit styling.
Featuring a contrasting two-colour stripe design, and a buttoned patch pocket. The deep hazel colouring is really something special.
Referencing the classic Fred Perry shirt, and made from the same classic combed cotton pique, the Crew-Neck T-Shirt features the super classic M7 single tipping on the collar, with matching Laurel Wreath embroidery at the chest with knitted ribbing at the cuffs and hem.
Fred Perry nails the aesthetic that falls perfectly on the smart end of casual.
Another bold classic is the Stripe Knitted Roll Neck. With its slim-fit and blended mix of cotton and acrylic that is knit in Italy. The 1964 Gold colouring is a solid bold addition and adds to the perfect persona of the Fred Perry aesthetic.
Featuring a ribbed roll neck, and striped detailing up the front. It wouldn’t be Fred Perry without the Laurel Wreath.
From sportswear to streetwear, the Fred Perry brand spread like wildfire. Finding as significant a home on the chest of a punk, as it did on a tennis player. Becoming a part of British subcultural uniform since the 1950s, and adopted by each generation as their own.
Adopted by all, and never forced.
