Fred Perry Men's Casual Shirts and Tops
Arguably one of the defining brands in British fashion history, Fred Perry has been a leader in the style stakes since the 1940s.
Fred Perry 'the man' was the Roger Federer of his day, winning three Wimbledon titles to become one of the finest players of the pre-World War 2 era. A keen table tennis player he became world champion at the age of 19 before switching to lawn tennis. He won all 4 grand slams including the US Open 3 times. He was also the last British player to win Wimbledon before Andy Murray in 2013.
He was soon approached to put his name to a range of sports products, the first being a simple sweatband, and later, the classic Fred Perry men's casual shirts and tops. In 1952 Fred designed and wore the first Fred Perry shirt and showed it to be practical both on and off the court.
From sportswear to fashion
While it began as purely sportswear clothing and accessories, Fred Perry gear gained a fashion following in the 1960s, with the Mod culture aficionados loving the smarter-dressed up look of the shirts and tops.
Whether you call them polo shirts or polo neck tops, the classic three button t-shirt with collar are Fred Perry's best known tops. Great with smart trousers and a jacket, or perfect with jeans to the pub, they're a truly versatile item of clothing than no Fred Perry fan should be without. They come in many colours and designs, short sleeved or long sleeved that suit your individuality.
The Fred Perry casual shirt, meanwhile, is smart enough on its own, or even better when dressed up with a sharp Italian suit. The famous laurel wreath emblem appearing on the chest of the wearer is an instantly recognisable logo across the world.
