Description: Accept no substitutes - the M12 is Fred Perry's original, and top of the line polo shirt. Made to the company's highest standards in Leicester, England, the M12 hasn’t changed since it was originally designed by Fred Perry in the ‘50s.
The M12 was Fred Perry's first model to feature their iconic twin-tipping around the collar and cuffs, and is the model that caught the eye of the Mod's in the 60s, who appropriated this piece of tennis wear, making it a fundamental piece of their anti-establishment style.
Color: Color No. 300 - White with navy and ice blue twin-tipping on collar and sleeve cuff
Fabric: 100% cotton pique woven in England
Origin: Made in Leicester, England

About Fred Perry: Fred Perry was an English tennis star (and killer ping pong player) who won 8 career Grand Slams and went on to start a small sweatband and tennis shirt company in 1952. Their polos were adopted by the mods in the 1960s, and some 65 years after their inception, Fred Perry polos and their laurel wreath are still as cool as they come.
