One of my birthday presents from Mr Dreadful was this long length red tartan shirt from Fred Perry. Fred Perry is one of his favourite brands, so he was delighted when I declared an interest in this shirt last time we poked around the store in Covent Garden. I also suspect he wants to turn me into Lol from This is England ’86 (we have already discussed the peroxide quiff, which due to my olive complexion simply would not suit).
|Note Lol’s buttoned up Fred Perry shirt
|My look wasn’t quite as sharp as Lol’s – I was going more for scrappy 60s urchin than tough 80s skin head, so no big stompy Dr Martens for me. I also wore a ton more mascara and eyeliner than I do normally, to avoid being confused for a lumberjack.
Outfit details: red Fred Perry tartan shirt, vintage 70s tooled leather belt, grey baker boy cap from Oasis, and boring old Gap jeans and red Converse.
