Due to hit the store in February next year in Ocean Blue and Gardenia + Red (white), we know how highly anticipated these colours will be so in December we will be making these open to pre-order.

Keen to ensure that Penfield don't get all the Puffa Gilet action this season, the Fila Vintage Bombedera Gilet has Fila yet again dipping into their Ski wear heritage to bring us very light and very warm winter wear. With your arms free it's much easier to, say, change a lightbulb. When it's a bit cold.

Invented by René Lacoste in 1927, inadvertently becoming known as a Polo Shirt due to the success of Ralph Lauren's version, the Pique Cotton Polo shirt goes on and on. Every brand has their take on this design and Fila are no exception. Introduce an element of Fila Vintage's Matchday line to the humble polo shirt and you get something a bit special - the Fila Vintage Match Polo shirt is 100% Pique cotton, slim fit and yarn-dyed collars and cuffs that last.

As if these weren't exclusive enough already, we now have in stock the Fila Vintage Green Terrinda Jacket with a 'Pro Badge' in the style of those jackets originally issued to players and not available to the buying public.
This jacket has the 80's Casuals motif, clearly an homage to the original 'BJ' Bjorn Borg'-badged terrindas and Matchday Jacket of the 80s.
These are extremely limited, so be quick…
Due to the huge success of the red Spin Jacket the Peacoat Navy and Gardenia (white) have been added to the collection. Stock is limited. Slim fit style, based on an archive replica the Spin Jacket has become one of the most popular styles this season.
"it's bit of an underdog" says Ravi at Stuartslondon.com "We were not expecting the demand on this style to be as much as it has become, and we bought way under expecting it to be a normal sell-through style. Thankfully we have managed to secure some more stock, and the navy, since we added them to our store and website, have began to sell faster than the red"
The Spin Jacket is made from poly triacetate, giving the jacket the old school retro feel and look.

The green Terrinda's are now in-store, but be quick because numbers are very limited. As you probably know, the Terrinda Jacket is the rarest of the whole fila collection. Also known as the Matchday Mark 3, the name Terrinda comes from the fabric used to make this jacket and in the 80's it was the most expensive item to be introduced to the fila collection.
Stock is limited and production for this jacket is controlled by Fila so the high demand will not be completed, so order early to avoid disappointment.

Have a look at Jez and Lisa's 1989 Vespa PX200. They've kindly sent us pictures of their beloved scooter, specially painted in a Fila Matchday Settanta Jacket theme, and we think it looks great!
Jez has been into scooters since the mid eighties and always wanted a custom scooter but never really had time and money to build one - until now. And what a result, inspired by the eighties when everyone was wearing Ellese, Sergio Tacchini, Kappa and Fila.
Says Jez: "I only had at that time a navy Sergio track top and a royal blue Fila top as Mum's purse wasnt that big! The idea initially came from a friend, as I now have about 24 track tops, and after thinking about things I decided to have scoot sprayed as a Settanta Matchday jacket. The Settanta was probably the most recognised item of clothing at that time as Bjorn Borg was wearing the Settanta Matchday at Wimbledon."
The scooter features the words 'Be Someone' - a quote from the film 'The Business', from the scene when Danny Dyer's character looks into the clouds. 'Admired by many worn by few' is from the Fila advert featuring Danny and Tamer Hassan. The paint job was carried out by John Spurgeon at Aerographics of Norwich and the scooter was stripped and rebuilt by Jez at a cost of £4,500. Wow.
Many thanks to Jez and Lisa for sharing their pictures with us.
