About Fred Perry Wallet
Fred Perry was formed in the 1940s as a sporting equipment manufacturer. The brand takes its name from a successful British tennis player of the time, who was approached by an Austrian footballer named Tibby Wegner with a view to creating a clothing company. Perry and Wegner worked together to create the first sweatband, an item which quickly proved popular with Perry's fellow tennis players. The company released its signature slim-fitting polo shirt in 1952.
One of the driving factors behind the Fred Perry success story has been its popularity with young music fans. The brand first became popular outside of sporting circles in the late 1950s, when mods began wearing its polo shirts as a badge of honour. This was the start of a long association between Fred Perry and youth subcultures, with skinheads, rude boys and indie fans all adopting the brand at one point or another.
Today, Fred Perry manufactures a wide range of clothing and accessories, including a line of high-quality wallets. Fred Perry wallets are available in a wide range of different colours and finishes, with some made out of leather, some made of canvas, and some made from silk. However, all feature the distinctive Fred Perry laurel wreath logo on the outer shell.
The company's wallet lineup is broadly split into two different styles: bifold and zip around. Bifold wallets are slimline models best suited to carrying banknotes and credit cards, while zip around wallets include a large zipped compartment for coins as well.
