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.
