Sitting at the center of the Fred Perry Sports Authentic collection, the taped track jacket retains all of its original features. Retro sportswear at its best.
The late 1970s brought in a new kind of sportswear. Contrasting colors in man-made fibers changed the way sport looked forever, and the Sports Authentic collection reimagines original Fred Perry pieces from this unmistakable era. It was these styles that encouraged the evolution of sportswear as streetwear and the track jacket took center stage when Britpop embraced its retro styling in the ‘90s. Made from a tricot fabric that replicates an original from our archive, it features all the classic details: front pockets, funnel neck and the white enamel-coated zip of the original: a reference to the cash-strapped time of the ‘70s, when zips and branding were generic to all colors.
