Don’t forget, you can find us on the Vintage Avenue in Vision Village at Stand V55.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. And we are not just yet talking about the big beardy man in red. What we are referring to is our latest shipment of brand new and shiny Fred Perry polo shirts.
The latest batch has just landed in the shop and for only £30 each, we can’t think of a better Christmas present or simply a way to treat yourself!
Now, we all know the story behind the name Fred Perry, but despite the grand man winning Wimbledon three times in the mid-30s, it wasn’t until the late 40s that Perry was approached by Austrian footballer Tibby Wegner who was the one to come up with the idea to make a short-sleeved sports shirt from white knitted cotton pique.
With the first Fred Perry polo shirt being launched at Wimbledon in 1952, the shirt became an instant success. However, it was the call from the original Mods in the late 50s for a wider range of colours which led the brand to diversify their product offering.
Ever since, the shirt with the two stripes and the laurel wreath has gone on to become a form of identification for many groups of teenagers, not only Mods and Northern Soul lovers, but also Skinheads and, more recently, devotees of the indie music scene.
