French Connection Convertible Zip-Up Shirt/Vest

French Connection Convertible Zip-Up Shirt/Vest

French Connection was founded in 1972 and set out with the aim to create design-led, fashionable clothing. It wasn’t until the late 1990s that the brand really experienced a rise in popularirty after Trevor Beattie visited the French Connection offices and noticed the abbreviation FCHK on an internal memo, leading to the launch of FCUK, standing for French Connection United Kingdom. An opportunity was realised for the brand to set themselves apart and in the spring of ’97, a controversial ad campaign featuring the simple line ‘FCUK FASHION’ caused enough of a stir to give the brand the notoriety and platform to build. 

This particular piece is a great example of FCUK’s ability to recognise trends and work around them, creating simple yet effective garments. The shirt has a military feel to it, with an unconventional zipper instead of buttons and zip-off arms that allow the wearer to convert it to a vest. It also features an adjustable collar and a small personal pocket by the hem. 

Great condition - one minor loose thread by the pocket
