A true original, the M12
hasn’t changed much since it was originally designed by Fred Perry
in the ‘50s. Legend has it that a buyer from Lillywhites requested the addition of football team colours to the plain-colour Fred Perry Shirt
. So, Fred
added subtle club colours to the collar and cuff and our M12
was born. The piece that took us from sportswear to streetwear and the first to carry our signature twin tipping in the 5-4-4 ratio that’s unique to us. Designed in Fred’s
famous streamlined fit – slightly boxier than our M3600 – its production is a real labour of love, with each polo knitted, dyed, cut, embroidered and hand-finished in Leicester, England. We’re looking at ways to reduce our impact on the planet. This product is made with the following key responsible features:
Recycled Tipping & Sewing Threads
Buttons Made from Recycled Materials
Responsibly-Sourced Laurel Wreath Embroidery
