A classic design, but previously aimed at just the male market. However, now you can get a Fred Perry tennis bomber jacket for women.

Sadly, there’s only one colour available right now, which is the grey you see here. But it’s better than none at all and hopefully it means this is now part of the Fred Perry range.

As you probably know, this was designed for use on the tennis courts back in the 1950s, but is probably better known for being worn on the street rather than the court these days.

Of course, you can get versions for men (with the most recent being one in black), but this one has been tweaked for women in terms of the cut and of course, the sizing, which is 8 through to 14.

The jacket itself sticks to the winning formula, a made in England jacket with profile-stitched pocket shaped like a tennis ball, along with an elasticated waist (designed to grip tennis players during their match), a concealed zip pocket, the Laurel Wreath logo and tipping for collar and cuff.

Sadly, the price is just the same as the men’s version too. This one retails for £200.
