From the beginning, Fred Perry - and the tipped pique shirt in particular - has
been associated with a whole series of subcultures driven by musical affinities.
Mods, skinheads, suedeheads, soul boys, rude boys, two tone. There was even a
short-lived subculture known as the Perry Boys. When Britpop took the world by
storm in the mid 1990s it was no surprise to find bands like Blur and Oasis
sporting the epitome of street fashion credibility.
