I can’t play tennis, let’s get that out of the way first. I like the idea of it, but rather shamefully I’m probably better at badminton. Or ping pong. Or Mario Kart. Anyway there’s no escaping tennis right now, every summer brings us wimbledon and every wimbledon brings us tennis inspired fashion. I genuinely don’t think anyone will ever top Luke Wilson as Richie Tenenbaum in The Royal Tenenbaums for the classic tennis look. Mind you I can’t do headbands either but then, who can? So what does the tennis look boil down to? Well if I had to pick one item, bar the racket, it would have to be the Fred Perry polo shirt, it’s timeless, and it’s also transcended sportswear to become an essential menswear item. So here we go, three ways to wear the Fred Perry polo shirt.
