Fashion & Style: 2009 marks the centenary of the birth of Frederick John Perry, the dashing three-time Wimbledon champion, and the classic British clothing brand that bears his name is celebrating with an exclusive new collection of limited edition polo shirts. The polos feature a unique design detail: an enlarged 16 leaf laurel, based on the original Wimbeldon symbol, with centenary embroidery placed underneath. The palette references classic Fred Perry colorways - white with leaf tipping, black with champagne tipping, 1964 sky with navy tipping and red with white tipping.

Launched at Wimbledon in 1952, the Fred Perry polo shirt was an immediate success. The new collection arrives in-store on May 15th and will be available at the Fred Perry Soho store in New York, Neiman Marcus in Dallas, Citizen Clothing in San Francisco and other selected retailers around the country. The shirts will retail for $95. Perry was the World No. 1 player for five years, four of them consecutive, 1934 to 1938. As an Eight time Slam winner and an all time great, Perry was the last Englishman to win the Wimbledon, US Open, French Open and Australian Open Men's Singles titles
