A nod back to the 1980s soul scene with this Fred Perry old-school zip-through sweatshirt.
Yes, according to Fred Perry, this autumn-friendly top is ‘inspired by the joy of getting dressed up and being part of something’. And specifically, the ‘80s soul scene.
And more specifically, the early ‘80s soul scene of South-East England, where a zip-through sweatshirt was a ‘mainstay on the dancefloors’ of clubs such as the Top Rank in Reading and Goldmine in Canvey Island. If that’s your era or past scene, this might well appeal on that front.
But it has wider appeal, too, as a slightly dressier take on a sweatshirt and one with a retro look. A lovely but of casual wear, especially if you like a Laurel Wreath on your chest.
It’s made of a cotton sweat fabric, with a point collar, zip-through front, two side pockets, and of course, that Laurel Wreath on the chest. The top is also described as having a regular fit, and the colour is ecru. So an off-white if you like.
Fancy One? £130 gets you one.
