We are a global, niche brand with strong values of integrity, personality and individuality.
Music is a universal language that connects us all. The Fred Perry shirt is a piece of British subcultural uniform, adopted by various groups of people who recognise their own values in what it stands for. We are proud of its lineage and what the Laurel Wreath has represented for over 65 years: inclusivity, diversity and independence.
You’ll find the Laurel Wreath on the stage, backstage and in the crowd. We are synonymous with music and we proudly support the spirit of independence.
From championing new talent to supporting the 100 Club, hosting diverse Subculture Live events all around the world and partnering with the Music Venue Trust – music is as important to us as it is to you.
Created in 2014, Music Venue Trust is a registered charity which sets out to protect, secure and improve the UK’s grassroots music venues. Working on behalf of 800 venues across the UK, they provide sector support, lobbying, fundraising, networking and crisis support services. With an emphasis on the vital relationship between independent venues and the artists they nurture, the trust work tirelessly to protect the future of our favourite local venues and up-and-coming artists. Their work is needed now more than ever.
We donated 5% of the first month of net sales in our re-opened UK shops in June-July 2020 to the Music Venue Trust. This is just the start of what we hope will be a long-term relationship with them.
Set up by Amy’s family in 2012, the Amy Winehouse Foundation helps to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.
We contribute to the Foundation with each Amy Winehouse collection, supporting their vital work. From 2013 to present day, we have paid over £1.2m to the Amy Winehouse Foundation in royalty payments.
In Amy’s memory, the Foundation works to inspire children and young people to build their self-esteem and resilience, so that they can flourish. Set up in 2012, The Amy Winehouse Resilience Programme has worked with over 300,000 pupils, in over 300 educational institutions across the UK.

In 2019, we introduced a new national youth tennis tournament: The Fred Perry Championship. 100 years after Fred first played at the Brentham Club, we returned to home soil to watch the best of the UK’s players compete to become the best in their age group. We recently won the Middlesex Tennis Competition of the Year Award for 2020, in recognition for the organisation and delivery of the tournament.
The Fred Perry Championship is a launch pad for a longer-term national initiative in conjunction with the LTA and local councils.
We host free coaching clinics for young tennis enthusiasts and have refurbished courts in need up and down the country.
The first of its kind, The Museum of Youth Culture was set up to document the attitudes, styles and expressions of youth across the UK. Its aim: to inspire future generations to make their own mark on the world around them.
Fred Perry proudly support their work and collaborate with the Museum on a number of projects.
We host events around the globe and shine a spotlight on local independents.

Our latest press statements on current issues relating to Fred Perry and the larger industry.
Amy Winehouse fit Fred Perry like rhythm fit the blues. That the collaboration between Winehouse with the timeless fashion house continues to soar in popularity almost a decade since her death renders her as unforgettable an icon of British style as Fred Perry itself.
It’s day two of ‘All Our Tomorrows’ and as we gear ourselves up for an afternoon spent luxuriating in Sunday roasts, panel talks and three more hours of new-music talent, we must remind ourselves to look towards the future, as well as live in the moment.
