Now if ever there was a collaboration with our name firmly stamped onto it, its this one. Kenneth Mackenzie’s legendary 6876 label, has hooked up with Stockport tennis/mod hero Fred Perry as part of their Blank Canvas campaign to create some rather superb looking clothing.
The range consists of ten garments which include two short sleeve Fred Perry Shirts available in mercury and black. 6876 design details include darting on the chest and back to provide a warming support panel and a flyfront placket.
Two long sleeve twin tipped polo shirts available in steel marl with espresso and espresso with black with darting on the elbows and the same concealed placket. There are two styles of workwear inspired shirting; ‘Shadow’ a chambray shirt which comes in navy and includes top stitching along the placket, a Modernist take on a button down collar with concealed buttons, and the Fred Perry Laurel Wreath x 6876 logo placed on the reverse of the shirt.
The second shirt has a three button placket and a drop hem. It is made from quality Italian corduroy and available in mid grey. The shirt is finished off with a hidden military pocket which conceals the stitched ‘sixeightsevensix’ label. There are three pieces of Scottish knitwear within the range; a lambswool split roll neck sweater in the colour oatmeal and a broken stitch crew neck sweater in grey marl and a long sleeve knitted notch shirt in lake marl both produced with the finest merino wool.
The Archive Car Coat made from British Millerain completes the look. Its finer design details make this the key piece within the collection; each button has the Laurel Wreath carved on the face and six eight seven six on the edge, along with this is the special design feature of a concealed pocket behind the classic pocket – this being so you can access your belongings within the coat and avoid ruffling the 6876 Modernist look. The collection will be available from Monday 21st of November. For more info go to: www.fredperry.com
