Fred Perry Polo Shirts

Fred Perry Polo Shirts are an icon of classic British style. First introduced in 1952 by the legendary tennis player himself, the initial Polo Shirt was created as an alternative to other pieces that Fred thought lacked functionality and wearability.  

His first Polo Shirt, now known as the M3, was crafted in Leicester, England and arrived in a dazzling white, lightweight cotton pique construction for wear on the court. The simple British style featured a dual button placket, a smart collar and elasticated cuffs, all ideal features for its intended athletic use, while the left breast featured the iconic branding, a symbol of victory, the Laurel Wreath. The M3 Polo Shirt continued to be worn on the court by Fred Perry and began to make an appearance on the streets of England as it became adopted as a key piece in the subcultural uniform of the '60s. Fred Perry apparel received increased exposure that resulted in the release of new models such as the twin tipped M12 Polo Shirt, that would further Fred Perry's range and lay the foundations for what would be one of the most iconic and recognisable brands to ever exist.  

During the '70s, Fred Perry's Polo Shirts were adopted by yet another subculture... Casuals. The Polo's easy-to-wear and particularly smart design charmed footballing fans and engulfed the terraces of the beautiful game, with the subtle integration of team colours in the collar striping making them a must-have for the match. From the 90's onwards the music scene began to show its approval of the simple Fred Perry Polo Shirt, with Indie rockers and Britpop lovers donning the piece. Its popularity was epitomised in the genre when both Oasis and Blur had been captured wearing the garment.

Currently, the Fred Perry Polo Shirt enjoys its reputation as a true icon. Its core history and DNA have been formed through non-conformity, subsequently gaining its status as a brand that belongs to the people. At Aphrodite, we have proudly stocked the brand for decades and offer an array of carefully curated Polo Shirts to suit everyone's needs. Whether you opt for a longer or short-sleeved piece or desire a more slim fit in comparison to the regular garments, we have you covered in a wide range of styles and colourways.
