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.
