How did Fred Perry become trendy for skinheads?

FRENCH PAPERS, Fri. 07/06/13: The death of 18-year-old left-wing activist Clément Méric dominates the French papers today. He was killed after a fight with a skinhead gang in the centre of Paris. Was this a fight that went badly wrong, or is it proof of a rise in far-right violence France should be concerned about? Papers are divided on the issue. Also, the Huffington Post explores why Fred Perry is a brand popular with extremist groups on both left and right.
