A Day in the Life

Dave Rowswell is a skilled photographer and Fred Perry enthusiast, who also doubles as a sales assistant at our Laurel Wreath Shop at Seven Dials. For a recent project, Dave captured a day in the life of a Fred Perry shirt; from the moment it's slipped on in the morning, all the way through an evening's partying and finishing with it still fresh for a cafe breakfast the following morning. Here's a small selection of photographs from the project:
