The clothes in the new Fred Perry Blank Canvas series play with two very iconic Liberty prints—"Mark" (paisley) and "Edenham" (floral). Strangely enough the collabo has sparked an interesting debate in the FADER office, which boils down to one polarizing style conundrum—does one wear prints on the inside or the outside? Our contributing style editor, Mobolaji Dawodu, is definitely a hardline all-over print man, and if you're familiar with the fashion spreads in this magazine and his inimitable line of clothing, then clearly you already know this. Is it really wise for a regular dude to do full frontal pattern though? Shy guys might prefer to pop a few flowers on their collar lining instead.
