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 colours to the plain-colour Fred Perry shirt. It subsequently became the first piece to carry our signature twin tipping in the 5-4-4 ratio. One of our earliest colourways, the maroon and ice tipping references the colours of West Ham United Football Club. The twin tipped Fred Perry shirt was the piece that took us from sportswear to streetwear, and with the same design details as the original, it’s a true piece of subcultural uniform.
