The Iconic M3600 Twin Tipped Polo Shirt and More from Fred Perry

Born in 1909, I'm sure you already know about Fred Perry. An exceptional tennis player, he won eight Grand Slams and two Pro Slams single titles, as well as six Major doubles titles. In the late 1940's he was approached by footballer Tibby Wegner who had invented an antiperspirant wrist device. Perry added a few adjustments and like that, the first sweatband was invented, to later inspire a time known as the 80s. Wegner then created a sports polo shirt to be made out of white pique and look similar to that of Lacoste's. Released in 1952, the Fred Perry polo was a massive success.

More colours were created and the shirt soon became a massive part of British fashion, becoming big in skinhead punk fashion and preppy sports alike. Bought by Japanese company Hit Union in 1995, it remains a major player in world fashion, sponsoring athletes such as Andy Murray. GO SPORTS!
