Made in Leicester, England, the M12 hasn’t changed since it was originally designed by Fred Perry in the ‘50s. Legend has it that a buyer from Lillywhites requested the addition of football team colors to the plain-color Fred Perry shirt. It subsequently became the first piece to carry the signature twin tipping in the 5-4-4 ratio. The M12 was the piece that took Fred Perry from sportswear to streetwear, and with all the same design details as the original, it’s a true piece of subcultural uniform. The color palette references the retro tones found in the original catalogs; a legacy that is pure modernism.
