The most iconic piece of clothing associated with the name Fred Perry is the classic
piqué cotton sports shirt from 1952. Fred called it “the shirt that fits” and its slim-line shape appealed to a generation of body conscious tennis stars who appreciated the breathability
of the open honeycomb weave ‘pique’ fabric. They weren’t the only ones. British youths adopted the ‘Fred’ as their shirt of preference – smart enough to wear beneath a mohair suit, cool enough to dance in all night long. The Fred Perry Shirt sold today remains exactly the same as its predecessors. A timeless classic, the perfect mix of form and function. A suitable legacy for a working class lad from Stockport who became a British icon.
