Congratulations to Oliver Golding

Big congratulations from all at Fred Perry to Oliver Golding, who won the US Open Boys title in New York yesterday. Beating world junior number one Jiri Vesely with a 5-7 6-3 6-4 victory; Golding battled through to win the match after losing the first set and suffering a halt in play due to poor weather conditions later in the day.

Inspiration - Donegal Tweed

A key inspiration for this season's Authentic knitwear is Donegal tweed; a fabric with centuries of history created through skilled craftsmanship, passed down from generation to generation. Known for its rich texture, the Donegal tweed's unique speckled appearance was originally created by hand-weaving wool from household sheep, coloured using natural dyes. The very first Donegal tweeds would take colours from the local surroundings - purples taken from blackberries and yellows from organic gorse - to create the mottled cloth.

Inspired by this unique heritage, our designers played with new knitwear styles and used soft lambswool to create men's and women's crew neck jumpers for AW11. Perfect layered over a brushed cotton check shirt or a long sleeve pique jersey, these styles are ideal for the colder weather that's started to creep in.

The Donegal tweed inspired crew neck jumpers are available at our Authentic shops and online at
