1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Just for a little laugh: [​IMG]

    On another subject, 1952 FP catalogue
    [​IMG]
    The brand makes a new collaboration with Nigel Cabourn BTW. The "original 1952 pique shirt" is quite nice.

    I'm sure that Fred Perry gear then was a lot better made that the stuff they pump out now...

    Personally I think brands like FP and Doc Martens have kind of 'worn out their welcome' and too many herberts wear them now anyway...

    That is really interesting because I seem to remember that FP now claim that in about 1956 it was West Ham fans that asked FP for the white tennis shirt to be done with claret and blue tips to collar. The shirt in the catalogue is pretty close in maroon and blue and this was 1952. I have a family photo of my dad his work mate me and my brother all wearing FPs at the seaside in about 1960.
    Great find Clouseau, you live up to your name. I want everything from that 1952 catalogue.

    I thought exactly the same Bob, i was sure in 1952 the polo existed only without piping. The apparition of the tipped collar on the FP tennis shirt has been discussed a lot on this thread, maybe this catalogue will clarify some of the questions.
    But unfortunately that's the only page of this catalogue i've seen, found on the official FP website a while ago.
    Cheers

    Looks like John Hollins in Chelsea strip 1970 or 1971. So not way off.

    Just rounded black sunglasses i guess. I've got exactly the same ones (one of the few items of this period i've still got). They were a brief fad among skins (at least here) at the time, maybe because of this fellow who knows. Funny thing, i had the same haircut, & jean jacket i used to wear with a white fruit & the loom tshirt. Well it's me in 1980 on this picture, except i'm not a blonde [​IMG].
