The Shirt became synonymous with a whole series of subcultures driven by musical affinities. Mods, skinheads, suedeheads, soul boys, rude boys, two tone. There was even a short-lived subculture known as the Perry Boys. When ‘Cool Britannia’ took the world by storm in the mid 1990s it was no surprise to find bands like Oasis and Blur sporting the epitome of street fashion credibility. The brand continues to be an integral part of British and global subcultures, the foundation for the brands success. Not bad for a working class lad from Stockport.
