Fila Matchday in Kelly Green was one of the most rarest colours around back in the 80s. Many would argue that it wasn't even available in Menes, and was a colour released for the women's collection. That's not true, it was a colour that just wasn't produced enough, and the quantity was limited. Although this jacket has been released a few times, since the 80s, this is the best replica we have seen. The Blue zipper and the cut and sew side designs with the stripes is an exact one to one re-make by Fila. The Matchday retails for £65 at stuartslondon.com but please be aware from August 2010 the price is going to be increased to £75.00
Loads of new stock has poured into Stuarts and the feed back is the Ace polo is on nearly every purchase.

Fila's favorite "comeback mom", Kim Clijsters, needed just 58 minutes to defeat Venus Williams 6-2, 6-1 to win the final of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. With daughter Jada cheering on her mom from the tournament's players lounge balcony, Kim won her second Sony Ericsson Open title.
She last played in Miami three years ago just before she retired from tennis to get married and start a family. Kim showed today that you can "have it all" and she thanked her support network of her husband, coach, trainer, family and nanny.
It took a lot of hard work to get back into shape and I have a few people to thank, including my fitness coach and husband," Clijsters said during the on-court ceremony. "It feels really good to be back here, having won the title in 2005. It's always nice to come back to a place you have done well before, and to such a beautiful stadium.
Backing up from her third-set tie-break win over countrywoman Justine Henin on Thursday night, Clijsters was in sparkling form, dictating play with her crisp ground strokes.
As reported by the Sony Ericsson Open media team, today's win is projected to lift Clijsters back into the Top 10 for the first time since she returned to the Sony Ericsson Open WTA Tour last year.

The Fila Vintage track record for bringing back in-demand retro styling with its re-released originals is unsurpassed, but the Settanta Collection – a three stage release of the most legendary pieces from the 70’s and 80’s Fila archive.
In 1973 FILA launched its first tennis collection designed by Pierluigi Rolando. FILA White Line was the beginning of an era that saw FILA redefine sportswear with an injection of colour, and an iconic design signature. Adopted by the Italian playboys and country club crowd FILA became the sports brand everyone aspired to wear throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s.
Settanta Mark I
1976 (Matchday/BB1 Polo)
Settanta Mark I in the red, was the first tracksuit designed for Borg. The first version launched in 1976, with the iconic ‘F’ badge on the chest. In 1977 the dual branded FILA BJ line was seen for the first time at Wimbledon when Borg proudly lifted the trophy after having beaten Jimmy Connors in the final. Other popular Settanta versions were the Kelly Green and Peacoat Blue bodies with Gardenia side panels and pinstripe details, frequently worn by Borg at the US Open.
Settanta Mark II
1980 (Bjorna and Salice Polo)
Settanta Mark II, was the second of the FILA BJ trilogy, released in 1980. The looser fit and simplicity of colour marked a significant change in design signature. Available in Peacoat Blue, Ocean Blue and Chinese Red, all had a single horizontal chest stripe and asymmetric double shoulder detail, represents the two Grand Slam events where Borg had his most success, Wimbledon Championship and Roland Garros.
Settanta Mark III
1982 (Terrinda/Terrinda Polo)
Settanta Mark III known as Terrinda was launched in 1982 and the last FILA BJ collaboration. The biker style collar and padded shoulder detail was ahead of its time and highly fashionable in sportswear design. Terrinda was the first collection aimed not only at tennis players but also at the fashion forward spectators. It was to be cleaner in design than previous BJ collections incorporating the court marking piping as the key design feature. The unique fabric knit was expensive and made Terrinda the crown jewel of the 80’s casuals.
The inclusion of Terrinda and other key Fila originals within The Firm, helps celebrate the history of a true fashion forward authentic sportswear brand and introduce it to a new audience of future Fila collectors.
Nick Love said: “The Terrinda was, and still is, the last word in elite casual sports wear – to make The Firm without key characters wearing Terrindas would be criminal.”
The Settanta collection is available in limited edition quantities from selected retailers such as Stuarts London. After the first delivery the Red and Navy Terrinda jackets will be in stock from May 2010. Stuarts London has secured a limited quantity.
Look out for the exclusive Lemon terrinda at stuartslondon this summer. More info soon on this colour
