Fresh Polos - Fred Perry Polo Shirts - Diesel
The Fred Perry brand is renown for the laurel wreath logo embellishing its polo shirts. Based on the original Wimbledon symbol, it appears on the left chest of Fred Perry Twin Tipped and one color shirts.
The brand is named after British tennis player, Frederick John "Fred" Perry, who won eight Grand Slams, two Pro Slams single, and six Major doubles titles. Fred and Tibby Wegner, an Australian football player, invented the wrist sweatband and then their signature white knit cotton pique shirt with short sleeves and buttoned placket.
Launched at Wimbledon in 1952, its success continued with the mods, a British subculture, and became the preferred garment for youthful men in the '60s, '70s, and into the present.
Wanting to create the most dynamic, imaginative and quality clothing possible, Renzo Rosso founded Diesel in 1978. He surrounded himself with creative, talented innovators rejecting the slavish trends of the fashion industry. His open-minded design team was given wide stylistic freedom and the mission of creating apparel for independent people who follow their own unique path in life and for style-makers who express their individuality via apparel.
Diesel is a leader in pioneering new styles, fabrics, manufacturing methods and quality control that guarantee an outstanding product. Their people and work methods are so unconventional, albeit productive, they have been profiled in countless media and studied worldwide.
