The late 1970’s brought in a new kind of sportswear.
Vivid colours in man-made fibres changed the way sport looked forever. The Sports Authentic Collection reimagines original Fred Perry pieces from this unmistakable era.
The Sports Authentic range looks back to the Fred Perry archive, reviving the retro sportswear aesthetic once championed by football casuals and 1990s Britpop musicians.
The classic ringer tee is defined by its contrast ribbed neck and cuffs. The Sports Authentic striped version has been designed to match original 1980s colourways, and has the archive B50 Laurel Wreath badge stitched onto the chest.
Track Jackets are made from a polyester and cotton tricot that was specially developed to replicate an original 1980s sample from our archive. The sports tape is printed with the archive B50 Laurel Wreath, with classic track jacket features including the funnel neck, white enamel-coated zip and a locker loop on the back neck.
The Bomber Track Jacket blends bomber jacket details, it has welt pockets and a bomber-style ribbed neck, along with the locker loop at the back. Both are finished with an embroidered B45 Laurel Wreath badge stitched onto the chest.
Retro sportswear at its best.
