I heard an interesting story the other day why Fred Perry upped its game in the last ten or so years with the Italian and Japanese ranges. In relation to the three button slim fits, waffle knits and monkey jackets etc.

An ex mod compiled a history of Fred Perry and archive for them in the late 90s. Then his mate starting working for them as a designer and introduced all the heritage styles.

I was drinking with the lad who had compiled the archive.

They're making a good job in the reissues field (if you forget the price tag), but the rest of the designers have lost their way.

Just stick with the reissues.

So I decided to have a look at the Fred Perry website and found this awful beast. I am truly shocked that this exists and that someone is out there wearing it. I feel polluted.

According to the description they use the "discharge printing technique."   ;D
