Fred Perry

Fred Perry was the original preppy punk. Even after winning all four Grand Slam tennis tournaments in the 1930s, the Bournemouth-born son of a cotton spinner was still despised by the tennis establishment. He didn’t care, and went on to give lessons to the likes of Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers. Perry also invented the sweatband and, in 1952, launched his eponymous polo shirt at Wimbledon. (The instantly recognizable laurel logo is based on an old Wimbledon symbol.) It wasn’t long before mods, skinheads, Rude Boys, and other British youth subcultures incorporated the shirts — sharp at night and fresh in the morning — into their own looks. (Not that you can't still wear a Fred Perry polo to play a few sets of tennis.)
