Swedish store Nitty Gritty are celebrating their 20th anniversary this season, with a selection of specially created garments to mark the occasion. Fred Perry has contributed the iconic M12 shirt, with Nitty Gritty's signature orange applied to our trademark twin tipping. When the shop originally opened in Stockholm in 1991; it was designed to be an alternative to the city's mainstream stores, catering for the local Mod and underground scenes.
The name 'Nitty Gritty' comes from the 1963 Shirley Ellis song of the same name, after the 7" was randomly pulled from a pile of vinyl at a brainstorming session. Nitty Gritty have been loyal stockists of Fred Perry for the past 20 years, and we're delighted to help them celebrate two decades in the business.
The limited edition Fred Perry x Nitty Gritty M12 shirt will be available soon - find out more HERE

Fred Perry's next stop as host for The Special's aftershow parties was Stockholm; with a packed out event held at the city's Restaurang Riche. Local DJ's Gustav Bendt and Viktor Brobacke warmed up the decks with an energetic punk and ska set, before the band took over at 11pm after their show at the Circus.
Guests were able to celebrate alongside Terry and the band, who are four shows into their European tour. The night was a huge success, with the party continuing late into the evening.
Next stop, Berlin!
