Fred Perry Parka

A lot can be said about the Fred Perry Laurel Wreath, after all, it is one of the most popular and iconic symbols in menswear history. It all began in the 1940s when Austrian footballer Tibby Wegner approached Fred Perry with the idea of crafting a sweatband bearing the Laurel Wreath. From then the brand traveled from strength to strength, making sports shirts bearing the classic logo which became popular as tennis-wear. Fred Perry shirts were then soon seen on the well-dressed Mods, which started off the brand’s massive influence on British Subculture. Also being associated with the Skinheads and Casual movement. After being around for half a decade, Fred Perry is now hugely popular.

An iconic piece is the Parka, which first became recognised when the Mods bought them from Military stores to keep their suits clean when riding their scooters. Ever since they have become a practical winter jacket which has been taken under Fred Perry’s wing and given a splash of colour this season. The field parka is available in two vibrant colour-ways; Blood Red and Persian Blue. The Fred Perry Jacket is crafted from durable nylon, with a checked tartan lining, providing warmth and comfort during the winter months.
