Fred Perry Specials Sweater

Certain artists immediately spring to mind when you think of iconic style.  The Beatles with their black suits and boots, The Ramones who managed to unify a complete musical sound and aesthetic, David Bowie and his various incarnations, Andre 3000 (sorry Kanye) for proving that white towels and throwback jerseys should be left on the basketball court.  The list goes on and on.

The Specials, while not immediately identifiable as style icons, had a look that unified their multicultural roots and presented the band as a singular unit.  Now the guys are being immortalized by Fred Perry.  Inspired by the picture of Terry Hall (below), the Fred Perry team re-created the sweater in a limited-edition run of 500.
