We recently launched a small selection of Re-issues online and in our Laurel Wreath Collection shops, celebrating some of the most iconic styles from our 60 years of streetwear heritage. A key piece from this collection is the Harrington jacket - a timeless outerwear style lined with red Stewart tartan and still made in the United Kingdom to this day.
Taking its name from the character Rodney Harrington from 60s US drama Peyton Place, the Harrington jacket has been adopted throughout the decades by stylish men ranging from Steve McQueen to Blur's Damon Albarn. The Re-issues Harrington Jacket is available in traditional black and navy colour options, and features a two button funnel neck, buttoned pockets and a zip down front. The jacket has a classic fit, with elasticised cuffs and hem offering a smart, streamlined look.
It's the attention to detail that makes this jacket so special - hidden zip pockets sit on the inner lining and pocket flaps can be turned inwards to expose a flash of the tartan trim. Each zip pull is engraved with our signature Laurel Wreath, buttons are branded and the back neck label inspired by archive designs.

Fred Perry celebrates a heritage built on sporting excellence with a unique Athletics blank canvas for summer 2012. Back in '52 the creation of our first cotton pique shirt was seen as a revolutionary move, adding a technical edge to the traditional tennis shirt whilst also allowing for maximum freedom and breathability on the court. 60 years on and Fred Perry have contemporised the pique shirt once more, creating four limited edition shirts with modern sports-tech detailing including panels of performance mesh, laser cut pockets, air vents and rubberised branding. The finished pieces are the perfect hybrid of traditional and technical details, adding a modernist edge to our unmistakable styling.

2012 sees Fred Perry celebrate 60 years as an icon of street fashion, with a series of special events and limited edition items being launched throughout the year. Formed in 1952 by the British tennis legend and table tennis champion of the same name; Fred Perry has crossed over from a purely sporting heritage, sharing a unique relationship with British subcultures that continues to be relevant today. The past 60 years has built on this unique sports and streetwear history, forming one of the most enduring and affectionate relationships between youth culture and a brand.
Our 60 year activity begins with six limited edition Fred Perry shirts, inspired by archive pieces and created using colour references taken directly from the original 1950s catalogue. Made in England, the Authentic ’52-‘12 twin tipped shirts feature specially designed Laurel Wreath branding, commemorating our founding and anniversary dates.
