Modfather Fred Perry is celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Specials’ landing on the world stage with a set of appropriately two-toned gear. The folks at World’s Best Ever were partial to the polo, but we’re feeling this referee-style striped number a bit more.

We’re not quite ready to call them “one of the most seminal and influential bands in British music history” like Perry does, but it’s a safe bet that there’s plenty of Britons (and a few style bloggers) happy to be reminded of the ska pioneers. All together now
