Fred Perry’s myriad fashion and subculture associations are so iconic that it can be easy to forget that the brand, founded by an elite tennis player of his time, was active sportswear.
Nigel Cabourn works with vintage sportswear, outdoor, workwear, and military garments. He gladly accepts the title of avid collector, but is reticent about the title of designer. In any case, he is an encyclopedic wealth of knowledge on the subject.
The Fred Perry x Nigel Cabourn collection explores this oft overlooked aspect of the Fred Perry story. This selection of historically inspired sportswear pieces features vintage washing and authentic, old-school construction. If it got any closer to being the real thing, it would come with Brylcreem.
