This season Fred Perry introduces the Ventile bomber jacket. As part of their men’s Laurel Wreath Collection, Fred Perry have created the perfect spring jacket based on the brand’s iconic tennis bomber shape using the single-layer Ventile fabric. Ventile first came about in the late ’30s when the British government required a protective clothing fabric to develop efficient garments for the RAF. The fabric is entirely natural product and is made from 100% cotton. Densely woven in the UK from the finest, long staple fiber, it offers excellent weatherproofing and durability. The jacket is available in three colorways – Royal Blue, Maroon and 1964 Olive – each with a Stewart tartan lining, including the original Ventile neck label and swing tag. Retailing is set at £195, with availability through Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection shops globally.
