Tennis Identity

Fila brings back Boris Becker.

Boris Becker Jacket at Fila No that's not Boris but click through these pics of Becker from the International Tennis Hall of Fame. 

Fila continues its run at the 80's with this redux of a look Becker wore back in his number-one days. Retooled for today's game with all the technical stuff you expect now, this jacket is going to stand out on court. Retro fans and those with court-loads of confidence will love it.

Fila Boris Becker polo The coordinating polo, shorts and sweat pants are far tamer (the latter two are both solid peacoat blue) so if you just want to dabble in the look there's the toned down option. That said, I know some of you can pull this jacket off. 

The print is thin wavy brushstrokes in colors called turkish sea and peacoat navy. 

Fila Boris Becker logo The new Fila Boris Becker jacket will run you $90; polo, $60; and pants $70. All comfortable poly spandex lined with mesh (neither shiny nor noisy). No word on who will be wearing this on the pro court. Anyone want to venture a guess?

Find it at Fila, Tennis Warehouse and Fila retailers worldwide.
