As before, this is a double-sided silk scarf, each featuring two designs – a choice of the paisley and polka dot above, along with the medallion design pictured over the page.

All have a matching-but-different cotton design to the rear, along with tassles and a Fred Perry logo to the main design on the front. Quantities are described as 'highly limited' and the price for each is £50.

if it just needs modest work and some cosmetics dealing with, the current £335 price might be a decent investment.
