Nestled on the corner of Seven Dials stands the first of Fred Perry's Laurel Wreath Collection Shops. Since opening in 2004, the Seven Dials shop has hosted our premium label's mens and womenswear alongside some of our most exciting designer collaborations and unique blank canvas concepts. Attracting clothing fanatics with a taste for fine fabrics, local craftsmanship and attention to detail, the shop has seen its fair share of special customers. Joseph Deen from Seven Dials tells us his story of being part of the shop...
“Working in the Seven Dials shop in Covent Garden you often get to meet some pretty special people. One of those people, John Bradbury (drummer of the Specials) is a regular visitor and I got chatting to him one day. That night Fred Perry had organised a Specials gig for their reunion at the legendary 100 Club on Oxford Street. I’d not managed to get a ticket and was pretty gutted... until he asked me if I wanted to go. I jumped at the opportunity and got to see one of my favourite seminal bands I couldn’t have seen the first time around. Right place, right time.”

This week sees the launch of a small number of limited edition Re-issue Shirts, inspired by four of the tribes and subcultures who have helped to build Fred Perry's unique history and heritage.
The 1957 Fred Perry shirt celebrates the story behind how our twin-tipping came to be. Originally requested by die-hard West Ham football fans, the supporters approached famous retailer Lilywhites of London to see if their club colours could be added to their favourite cotton pique shirt. Lilywhites in turn approached Fred Perry, and the tipping was duly added.
Made in England, the 1957 Re-issue Shirt has been created in a slightly lighter cotton pique with a soft, vintage finish. Keeping as close as possible to the very first twin-tipped shirt, the buttons have been left unbranded and the woven back neck label is almost identical to that of the 1957 original.
