Worn by everyone from athletes and artists to card-carrying members of extremely disparate political affiliations, Fred Perry’s sportswear is able to miraculously transcend social strata, while at the same time providing the unlikely and unofficial uniform for groups who want those lines kept defined and in tact. Whether you’re punk or mod, far left or alt-right, every splinter of every subculture has found comfort, quality and a refined simplicity in Fred Perry garments. And isn’t that a testament to a solid product?
There’s few Fred Perry pieces as instantly recognisable as our Tennis Bomber Jacket. Designed for courtside, the Tennis Bomber was the original warm-up jacket in the ‘50s and has been adopted and reinterpreted by British subcultures generation after generation. Still featuring signature details that have been with us since the ‘50s, (like the profile-stitched pocket – shaped like a tennis ball, single M2 tipping and a concealed zip pocket for that all-important locker key), the Tennis Bomber is a Fred Perry classic that has stood the test of time.
