Tartan Shirt (black & white)
A tartan shirt in crisp cotton poplin. Designed with Fred Perry's signature button-down collar and typical shirting details. Regular fit. Rounded hem. 100% cotton. Machine wash.
Originally worn as a symbol of the wearer’s clan, tartan signified the life of the gentry and the wearer’s long and noble heritage. It was adopted into streetwear in the ‘60s for very different reasons: a metaphorical two fingers to the establishment. Today, it still forms a key part of the subcultural uniform.
Do up the buttons and straighten the collar upwards, then turn inside out.
If you’ve been out dancing around at your local gig venue, wash it at 40˚c to get it really fresh.
If your shirt isn’t so dirty, wash it at 30˚c, or better yet, why not wear it again.
After washing, gently re-shape your Fred Perry Shirt whilst it’s still damp.
Please, steer clear of the tumble dryer. It hates your clothes.
Hang your Fred Perry Shirts up inside out and either dry flat, or line dry in a shady spot.
