Founded by designers Sam and Shaka, Art Comes First is driven by the meeting of style and subculture. Self-proclaimed ‘travelling tailors,’ Art Comes First share Fred Perry’s admiration of craftsmanship and strive to create pieces that inspire and look to the future.

Punk tailoring takes on classic Fred Perry pieces.

“Tradition, inheritance, nothing is new under the sun. We study what was done before us so that it can inspire the future. It’s the 360 circle of creativity.” ART COMES FIRST

“A hybrid style, this piece mixes design details of two of our iconic jackets. The body is taken straight from our Harrington; made in the same woven cotton/poly fabric, with the same rib hem and buttoned flap pockets. The sleeves are taken from our track jacket; constructed using the same lightweight tricot with a matt-black finish. A flat knit rib collar completes the hybrid silhouette: a reference to the Fred Perry shirt. Fitted with a zip pocket with leather puller on one arm, and chunky green Art Comes First patch on the other: a reference to official uniform epaulettes. Inside, an unexpected Art Comes First logo is printed onto the back in white: an example of the quiet punk influences of the design duo. Finished with a draw-cord puller zip, grosgrain tape at the chest, and the original Art Comes First label stitched below our 30-leaf Laurel Wreath.”

“Punk tailoring takes on classic Fred Perry pieces and sees the piqué shirt reimagined. A sharp, monochrome style, the white shirt has a black 30-leaf Laurel Wreath at the chest, with the original Art Comes First label stitched just below it. A straight fit, the shirt has a textured woven collar.”
