1957 - Tipping is Born

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.

The 1957 Fred Perry Shirt, as part of the Re-issues Collection.

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.

The Re-issue shirts have been made in small numbers and are available to buy in our Laurel Wreath Collection Shops and online at
