Being from Stockport it’s a bit of a given that I have a soft spot for our most famous son Fred Perry and being a big fan of anything to do with war I’m also really into military wear brands like Arktis. I interviewed one of their designers a while back and as a thank you he sent me an amazing Swedish camo parka that had a little post it note attached. It said something along the lines of “I hope you like the jacket, the lads in the SAS seem to” at which point my knees buckled and I fell to the ground such was my level of chuffedness. Hence this collab between FP and Artkis gets the full Proper approval thanks to the appearance of their tundra DPM on a variety of pieces and accessories including a very smart bucket hat. What do you mean you can’t see any of it?
