Fred Perry is a brand loved by the likes of Blur and Pete Doherty, ensuring its brand credentials stay seriously cool.

It may have left cult singer Pete Doherty somewhat red faced and hot under the collar, but the news that the singer allegedly didn't have the cash to buy Fred Perry gear on a recent shopping trip has reconfirmed the brand as being seriously cool. Fred Perry is a label loved by some of the biggest names in the music scene – whether it be the Arctic Monkeys or Blur. One thing these Fred Perry fans have in common is a fierce intelligence and creativity that makes sure they stand apart from the rest of the music mob. Old school bands like Blur who have reformed and hit the tour circuit are often spotted in Fred Perry gear. Lead singer Damon Albarn was spotted wearing the same Fred Perry t-shirt at Glastonbury and at T in the Park

Fred Perry Causes a Shambles

The gossip around Doherty allegedly being caught without cash spurned some classic headlines in the papers and blogs – Pete Pocketless! Shambles in Shop! Doherty in Fred Perry Debacle! True or not, the story is great pr for Fred Perry, not that the designer clothing brand needs it. The Fred Perry label is loved by sports stars, musicians, and the average guy on the street alike, giving it a wide-ranging appeal that's unusual for a designer label. It takes in everything from tennis gear to men's fragrance, and is equally happy worn in the football terraces as it is on the rock stage or catwalk.

The Daily Gossip

Fred Perry suggests a timeless elegance and quirky style, so it's not surprising the Babyshambles front man was spotted shopping for the brand. But whether the gossip around his cash-less state is true or not is another matter. The reports suggest after Doherty discovered he had no cash, he called a friend who bought along a credit card - but the card was declined. The story was featured in somewhat untrustworthy media sources like the Daily Gossip, who said the star couldn't buy £1,000 worth of Fred Perry clothes because he had no cash. Apparently, the singer had requested the Fred Perry shop to stay open late so he could shop in peace, adding to his alleged embarrassment. One thing's for sure, Fred Perry's credentials have stayed intact.
