Making the most of the labels sharp lines, sleek styling and smart look, the mod’s made Fred Perry shirts and polo’s a staple of their style, whilst using a Fred Perry Jacket to protect them from the elements whilst they were out on their scooters. It was the Fred Perry parka in particular that announced the arrival of the Fred Perry jacket- a loose fitting style that was perfect for any mod weekend out, the Fred Perry Parka became an iconic style and a firm Fred Perry jacket style that is still loved today.
