The first Fred Perry Shirt was worn in 1952 – an all-white cotton pique shirt with a Laurel Wreath embroidered to the left hand-side. A simple shirt that still represented a lot of meaning. Designed and worn by triple Wimbledon Champion Fred Perry himself, the shirt was the perfect fusion between practicality and wearability perfect for wear both on and off the tennis court.
The brand later introduced ‘twin tipping’ around the collar along with new colourways, which proved to be very popular and has been adopted by British Subcultures ever since. Today Fred Perry is known for its effortless blend of streetwear and sportswear.
