A true original, the M12 hasn’t changed much 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. So, Fred added subtle club colours to the collar and cuff and our M12 was born. The piece that took us from sportswear to streetwear and the first to carry our signature twin tipping in the 5-4-4 ratio that’s unique to us. Designed in Fred’s famous streamlined fit – slightly boxier than our M3600 – its production is a real labour of love, with each polo knitted, dyed, cut, embroidered and hand-finished in Leicester, England. Inspired by the bold, considered dressing of the ‘70s.
