I'm too broke for Fred Perry, but the singer of my old band got rid of his yellow and black polo because of the Proud Boys.

People should definitely not let them take over FP: https://www.gq.com/story/fred-perry-wan ... heir-polos

Maybe they should just take the black and yellow one out of circulation for a while.

Stopped wearing mine for the time being just because I started to feel too self conscious walking around in public. It sucks.

Why are people feeling self-conscious for wearing clothes? Do you also feel weird wearing red or blue articles of clothing because they're associated colors of the bloods/crips or Burberry for being associated with English football hooligans? If you stop wearing it then they've already won. Don't let them win!

I agree even though I stopped wearing big dog brand when I was around 12 because of the association with obese dads.

I'm 6'2, blond, blue eyed and pale with red facial hair. I don't generally wear metal or wizard rap shirts because there's been 10-15 times I've gotten an explicitly racist open from guys that just assume I'm a terrible person because I fit the profile. Fred Perrys are not worth the trouble of any one thinking I'm a Proud Boy, much less a guy trying to make a conversation about it.


I'm not giving up my euro fade, though.

Was never a fan of the black and yellow.

It's pretty hilarious though to see all these fucking rednecks wearing FP shirts with their hunting hats and shit in their Facebook profile pics.

Also, this.
