Fred Perry Country Collection Review

Posted by John Devlin

Well, its been quite a while since I’ve added a new post. Been loads going on behind the scenes at True Colours with lots more coming to.

To ease myself back in gently I thought I’d do some product reviews (got a couple of book reviews coming soon) and also accompany them with some videos to give you a better look at the items. Hopefully this will be a regular feature, but please bear with me if they’re a little ropey!

Today I’m reviewing a great set of tops from iconic British manufacturer Fred Perry. Of course the brand aren’t known for their football apparel, but earlier this year they brought out a superb range of polo shirts called THE COUNTRY COLLECTION – inspired by some of the teams playing at Euro 2016.

0000-a-385-052 0000-a-405-058 0000-a-408-034 0000-a-408-037 0000-a-408-040 0000-a-408-043 0000-a-408-046 0000-a-408-049

The shirts feature the classic Fred Perry styling in appropriate colourways along with retro style ‘laurel’ logo taping on the sleeves for that authentic 1970s retro flavour. The familiar twin trim has been dropped from the ribbed collar and cuffs to create a symbol, classic and minimalist aesthetic.

They’re available in the following eight teams: ENGLAND, GERMANY, FRANCE, ITALY, SPAIN, SWEDEN, BELGIUM and PORTUGAL.

I managed to get hold of a Belgium version and its a beautiful piece of clothing. Vibrant colours, excellent fit and top quality fabric as you’d expect from Fred Perry.

The Fred Perry Country Collection – absolutely superb and make a great alternative to fans who want something different to a regular replica shirt.

They cost £65 each from www.mainlinemenswear.co.uk – but hurry, sizes are going fast.

See you soon…

    Lovely shirts, John! I’d wear one of those any day, purely on account of the beautiful styling. And as you say, Belgium’s colour palette is right up there with the best… a wise choice, I’d say!
