In store and more: Fila Vintage Gold does not stock much of the Fila Gold range, just select items. When I talk to the guys at Stuarts they are very cautious about this range, which is a shame. They know they can sell Terrinda (when they get it). They know they can get a great response when the reissues come in. But come on! This is 2009, and we can't just lust over something wed wore when we were 15.

The Fila Gold range is, as I see it, a continuation of the styles we wore, not a reproduction of them (Fila Vintage caters to that). Fila Gold is an honest approach to the question: What should we do next..? Let's take the best of the past, and apply it to the present, the 21st century.

I know that there is a lot more to Fila Gold. I get to see the lines that Stuarts choose not to stock. To find-out more, or to see the current Fila Vintage / Gold range go to, or Contact us

New arrival: Fila Settanta Matchday Mark 3 "Terrinda" Jacket

The Fila Terrinda Jacket is here and we are the first Stockist in the UK to get it in. With the new film 'The Firm' due to be released in two days on the 18th Sept, you can watch it in style by wearing the exclusive limited edition Navy Terrinda jacket. Stock is very limited and only 500 jackets and bottoms have been made for world wide distribution, so if you don't want to miss out - be quick!

Gift Boxed - Why all this fuss about a jacket from the 80s?

1973 Fila launched its first collection designed by Pierluigi Rolando. In an age of Tennis Whites, Fila White Line was the beginning of an era that saw them redefine sportswear with an injection of colour and style. These iconic designs caught the eyes of the mass on court and more importantly off the court. Fila weren’t just any normal sports brand. Adopted by the Italian playboys and country club crowds, Fila became the sports brand that everyone aspired to wear.

Settanta Matchday Mark 3

After the previous Fila Matchday jackets in 1982 the mark 3 was launched. Dubbed as the Terrinda jacket by the collectors and lovers of this giant brand, it was the first collection aimed at tennis players and fashion conscious spectators. The Terrinda name comes from the fabric, and off the courts and on the terraces, the Fila terrinda jacket was a must-have piece.

However it wasn’'t cheap in price because of the quality and the time spent on research and development. Originals today from the 80s depending on the quality can fetch up to £1200 on websites like eBay.

The jacket's characteristics are very simple with slight padded shoulders and white piping contrast representing the court markings. The biker style collars complete the timeless look. To put it simply, the Terrinda was way ahead of its time.

Your other half may make you kick-off your Grand Slams and hang-up the Terrinda as soon as you enter the house, but here's one way to keep the faith whilst relaxing in the calm of your own home.

Incoming: Fila Vintage Beanies

Don't get us wrong, we love summer, the great tees, nice polos, sharp shorts. But when the season cools down we can wrap up in great winter gear like sweaters, ski jackets, boots and hats.

So we're looking forward to these beanies from Fila - the Vintage Beanie (above) and the Vintage Snow Time Beanie (below). Due to land this month at Stuarts London they bring some 80's ski resort style to the humble beanie hat. Bring on the winter.

Incoming: Fila Vintage Linesman Jacket

When a sportswear brand decides to resurrect product lines from its glorious past, you might imagine a quick rummage through dusty filing cabinets to retrieve blueprints, followed by a brisk walk over to the factory to say "Start making these again, please!"

But this is Fila, and they are not ones to get bogged-down with boring admin and paperwork. Oh no.

The Linesman Jacket was reborn after it was seen on the telly, in old tennis match footage, being worn by... a Linesman. Fila used this footage as reference to painstakingly recreate this jacket, which will soon be in-store at Stuarts London.
