2009 marks 100 years since the birth of Frederick John Perry, better known as Fred Perry, tennis legend and man behind the classic British clothing company. To celebrate this fact, Fred Perry is releasing a very special item – the Fred Perry 100 Year Polo Shirt.
Available in very limited numbers, the polo shirt will feature an enlarged 16-leaf laurel with the centenary embroidery underneath and be sold in three classic colourways – white with leaf tipping, black with champagne tipping and the 1964 sky with navy tipping.
No news on a price, but you’ll find out soon enough – the 100 Year Polo Shirt will be available online and in Fred Perry stores from May 18th, the very day of Fred Perry’s 100th birthday. See over the page for images of the other two colourways.
