Vintage Fila Roll Necks: An '80s Classic

After the 80s casual look? Then you need to get yourself one of these FILA roll neck tops.
Since featuring in the Nick Love film, The Firm, demand for these and other clothing of the casuals' heyday has soared. Part of Fila's '80s re-releases campaign, this re-issue was a long-awaited compliment to the vintage Fila collection and is ideally worn under jackets or v-neck jumpers. Fila have named the range of polo necks after the '19th' hole, to emphasize its credentials as casual wear and the versatility of the look.
Fila have produced these roll necks in red, white, black and navy colours and manufactured them in lightweight cotton. When you put one of these on, you'll instantly have that '80s casuals look.
Fila vintage collectors and fans after the casuals look should definitely check these out.

Don't forget to look at the rest of the Fila Vintage range at Stuarts London.

Fila Settanta Mark One

Hot on the heels of last week's influx of Fila Terrinda jackets (the Settanta Mark III) in some gorgeous new colours, this week sees the return of the jacket that started it all- the Settanta Mark I. The Mark 1 Settanta was originally launched in 1976 and was designed for tennis superstar Bjorn Borg.

As with many of the Fila tracksuits, polo shirts and jumpers, these jackets were adopted by the Casuals culture in the '80s- and demand for these has been refuelled by recent British films The Business and The Firm. The high-demand has prompted Fila to re-issue the Settanta One and a few other Fila classics too.

The Settanta Mark I is back in stock at Stuarts London, as well as a whole host of re-issued Fila goodies.
