No Wimby logo here but it is Nike’s Men’s Wimbledon T-Shirt. Tennis balls over London Bridge. How veddy…..British. Find it: TW/USA
Bjorn Borg Men’s Summer Palmer Crew (and yes I digress). We’re adding this here because, of course, this is the guy who owned Wimbledon from the mid 1970s through the early 1980s. His original Fila BJ line is sadly long gone (though Fila has sorta reissued it,) and he has his own clothing company. This shirt is made of 90% Polyester, 10% Elastane Hydro Pro, and comes in the Aqua color shown, and a Black & White Print. I like the design as it reminds me of this classic look with the BORG on the sleeves. I had that one, and the all-white version, too! Find it: TW/USA
Roger Federer Autographed Men’s Wimbledon Hand Shirt. Maybe you’d like something to commemorate Wimbledon, from the guy who owns the tournament now. Here’s a 2016 Nike Federer emoji T, and oh BTW it’s signed by The GOAT. ‘Nuff said. Comes in Wimbledon white, size medium, and you get proof of authenticity. Just don’t spill any strawberries and cream on it- it’s not like you can ring Fed up for a replacement. “Uh, hi, Mirka? Say, is he in?” Find it: TW/Europe
