if fred perry did running gear

if they did, I would be bankrupt. I am still waiting for someone somewhere to successfully replicate some retro running clothes.

I love Fred Perry so much I can barely breath thinking about the new collection. Now don't get me confused; I'm not into the chavy stripy jumper Fred Perry but the retro tennis gear and beautiful mod Laurel Wreath collection. A few years ago I pretty much wore a fred perry polo shirt everyday, I have amassed quite a little collection. I need some FP running gear though, I need it like I need oxygen.

It's not cheap so I have to wait for sales but look at it, its well worth it. Look, ahhhhhh lovely....

vintage fred perry tennis skirt £35 - ASOS Marketplace

Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry Houndstooth skirt £90 ASOS

Laurel Wreath Collection Printed Shirt Dress - £150 ASOS (ouch)
Richard Nicholl Angora Cardigan - £175 ASOS (double ouch)
Shabba - this man rocks my world - today, yesterday and tomorrow.

I cannot tell you how happy I would be if they were to invent a cute little wicking polo shirt and some winkle picker trainers. Oh my, I am getting laurel wreath shaped shivers up and down my spine just thinking about it. If Fred Perry made music I reckon it would sound like this......................... and this.... oooh and this..................... and last one I promise I know, I am sorry. I realise I am indulging myself. I don't care. Sammy x x x
