Express Timeless, Simple Confidence in Fred Perry Clothing
The Fred Perry brand was founded by British tennis and table tennis champion Fred Perry in 1952 as a clothing line dedicated to fusing functional sportswear with elegant styling. Originating with the Fred Perry shirt, the fashion line now includes styles for women and children, collaborations with other artists, and exclusive high-end collections. There is always a variety of new, gently-used, and vintage Fred Perry available at eBay, and you don't have to be a Fred Perry VIP to find prices you can afford.How is the Fred Perry logo identified?
The brand's logo is a laurel wreath: Two leafy branches interlocking at the logo's base and curving towards the top in a circular fashion. The brand's name is written in block letters, sometimes inside the wreath and sometimes underneath. When trying to assess if a logo is authentic, it's important to study the thickness of the leaves, the quality of the stitching, and the style of the block lettering as well.What are the distinguishing features of a Fred Perry shirt?
The brand's signature polo shirt was the first item Fred Perry designed, and he wanted it to be worn on and off the tennis court. This shirt has been and continues to be, made in Leicester, England, with a distinctive close-fitting silhouette. Many of the styles feature twin tipping, which means there are slender stripes on the collar and cuffs. Every shirt, whether it's a polo or a Fred Perry T-shirt, comes with the familiar logo that symbolises the brand.Aside from the signature polo, what else does Fred Perry make?
The brand has expanded its apparel options since first making the signature polo in 1952. Here are a few other items you can buy in a similar styling:
- Fred Perry Jacket: Light jackets to protect you from a bit of drizzle in style. Some jackets have the recognisable twin tipping on the collar, and many display the logo prominently. Choose between an athletic jacket, a more formal coat, or something in between.
- Fred Perry Shoes: Mostly foam-soled street shoes for everyday use, with a sophisticated styling to dress up or down. Many feature the laurel wreath on the side, muted colourways and quality fabrics.
- Fred Perry Bags: Duffel bags, rucksacks and shoulder bags in reserved colours with simple styling. The classic barrel bag is made from durable polyurethane faux leather, with striped straps reminiscent of the twin tipping on the polo shirt.
