Fantastico! Ellesse Clothing Now Available In The USA

Share

Back in the day, there were three major clothing lines from Italy: Fila, Sergio Tacchini (who was an Italian Davis Cupper) and Ellesse. They each had flagship players, like Borg and Vilas with Fila, McEnroe with Tacchini, and Evert and Vilas with Ellesse. You can check out the decade of 1970s tennis fashion here.

Back then, due to distribution issues, those lines (except for Fila) were really hard to find. Ellesse has always been impossible to locate and purchase.

Until now.

The famous line is now available at Tennis Warehouse US and Europe. Men’s Ellesse: TW/USATW/EuropeWomen’s Ellesse: TW/Europe

Here are a few styles from their selection. There is something timeless about these Ellesse pieces- maybe it’s because the look really hasn’t changed from their 1980s glory days, though poly has replaced cotton as the prime fabric. (Something only tennis geeks know- the Ellesse logo is a tennis ball with ski tips on either side, and the name is pronounced “L.S.” after company founder Leonardo Servadio. And now you know the rest of the story.)
