I have one, very rarely wear it as like most of the standard FP stuff it washes awful and has lost its colour and shape.

I couldn`t care less what a load of American boneheads are wearing ,it wouldnt stop me wearing or buying a black/yellow FP  if i wanted one.  Ive had comments in the past about my skinhead look, ( ive been mixing mod/skinhead/casual looks for years ) ,but it shows more about their ignorance than mine.

Pretty much my view too. If people want to make ridiculous assumptions thatís their lookout. Same for when I wear union flag or St George flag pins. Iím hardly likely to espouse those dodgy right wing nutter philosophies with a Ghanaian missus and a biracial bairn!

Great colour polo. Ignore all the other idiots and wear it if you like it.  Nobody should ever be judged on their clothing.  Well almost nobody  :o

That's strange. I thought an ill fitting boxy suit and too long red tie were the official uniform of white nationalism.... :o

Interesting - I think thereís probably a lot of variation with FP (and Lacoste too) in their dyes and how well they maintain their colours. Iíve had some FPs that after only a few washes started to look decidedly faded which is not on when you consider the price versus so many other brands. It may have a lot to do with where theyíre made.

M12 made in UK and M120 the 3 button Japanese one generally were much better.  This was a few years ago, not sure now.  they were worth the extra cash in the long run.

I live in the US and have a black FP with yellow and royal blue piping, but have had any issues. I think some proud boys get pepe frog or the name"proud boys" embroidered under the laurel leaf as further identification, so that's usually more of a marker than just the shirt. To be honest, the whole thing started as a joke, and will probably die out after a while, so I'm not changing my lifestyle because of some blip on the radar.

I liked the response from the Fred Perry Chairman. You can also most hear him thinking "oh for f..ks sake".
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: You know what they call a guy who pays that much attention to his clothes, don't you?
