Fred Perry prides itself on being the first British heritage brand to successfully blend sportswear with streetwear to create some of the most iconic styles of the last century. Throughout its history it has always stayed true to its ethos of authenticity, integrity and attitude.
The brand was born in the late 1940s, when former Austrian footballer Tibby Wegner approached three times Wimbledon champion Fred Perry with an idea. Their initial venture was the very first sweatband, which was quickly adopted by tennis players across the courts of Britain. In 1952 the pair launched what was to be Fred Perry's most famous garment: a slim fit cotton pique shirt with Laurel Wreath embroidery.
From the beginning, Fred Perry - and the tipped pique shirt in particular - have been associated with a whole series of subcultures driven by musical affinities. Today the Laurel Wreath logo is recognizable worldwide, with shops and customers across 50 countries around the globe. The original Fred Perry cotton pique shirt is still made to the same high standards and is synonymous with underground fashion and British cool.
