Vintage Tennis Friday: The Fila Vintage Matchday Jacket.
If you've grown up watching tennis through the 70's and early 80's...or if you've watched Luke Wilson in The Royal Tennenbaums...then you've at least seen a very similar jacket to this. It was the Bjorn Borg signature jacket when we was en route to winning 6 French Opens and 5 straight Wimbledons in the 70s. And it's back in a range of colour schemes, including this green and white one and made from 70% acrylic and 30% wool. Hey...no one said fashion had to be comfortable. I've seen some on eBay, but this one comes from the UK, and runs £64.
