Fred Perry was a fine tennis player, but today most of the general public tend to regard Fred as the man responsible for making white polo shirts a wardrobe staple for men of any age.
The reason we’re thinking about the eight-time Grand Slam winning racketeer is that Bristol-based independent magazine Crack have hooked up with Fred Perry to launch a new zine, Departures.
The publication sees five creatives ruminating on the journeys that shaped them and is available now at the Fred Perry store in London’s newest enclave for boutiques, Coal Drops Yard.
The aforementioned creatives are visual artist Rene Matić, Heavy Lungs frontman Danny Nedelko, Yorkshire-born painter Alfie Kungu, The Horrors’ bassist Tom Furse and photographer Charlotte Patmore.
