Björn Borg’s original Fila polo.
How many of you remember this tennis shirt? It is, in fact, the first Fila White Line Collection polo that Björn Borg ever wore. It resides in Fila’s archives and museum in Biella, Italy. Be still my heart.
Made of 100% cotton baumwoll fil d’ecosse* with acrylic, the polo has a quality cotton feel that is rare today. Borg’s tennis shirt (also with red collar as linked above) was his tennis uniform (plus the shorts, headband and jacket), and not just for one slam season as is common today.
*Fil d’ecosse is very fine quality mercerized cotton
