Murray's homage to hero Fred Perry.

With Wimbledon starting tomorrow, Scot Andy Murray - ranked no.3 in the world - is paying homage to the centenary of Wimbledon winner Fred Perry by adorning the brand again. Perry was the last British male to win at Wimbledon, back in 1936, but many are hopeful that Murray will be the next British champion. 
The outfit is unashamedly retro, with a monogrammed cable knit jumper, (very short) shorts, aertex collared shirt and bag all bearing the Fred Perry laurel wreath logo and Murray's initials. I think the appeal of Wimbledon is definitely its tradition and values so I find the vintage tennis look completely appropriate.
