FILA Vintage

Fila Vintage Mens ClothingFILA VINTAGE 

With over 100 years of sporting heritage, Fila Vintage cannot be surpassed. FILA Vintage is FILA's retro sportswear range, based on original men's garments from Fila's 70s and 80s archives, including iconic pieces worn by sporting greats like Bjorn Borg, including such Fila staples as the BB1 Polo and Settanta Jacket. A fantastic example of 80s Casuals style, Fila has been embraced by further generations keen to channel the classic terrace look. Each season Fila Vintage delve into thier archives for 70s and 80s inspired items which fuse vintage design, clean colourways and contemporary sports comfort. 

FILA was founded in 1911 by brothers Ettore and Giansevero Fila, in Biella, Italy. FILA started out making quality textiles for local people in the Italian Alps. In 1968 they appointed managing director, Enrico Frachey who masterminded FILA's transformation into a global sportwear brand. FILA's unconventional sports clothing grew in popularity throughout the 70s and 80s, evolving into the sportswear legend we're all familiar with.

From 1975 onwards, FILA sponsored tennis legend and Wimbledon champion, Bjorn Borg, designing a range of FILA track tops, shorts and polo shirts for him. The FILA jacket most associated with Bjorn Borg is the FILA Settanta track top with its jersey construction and striped details. At Wimbledon Borg famously wore the FILA Settanta in Chinese Red and Peacoat Navy, colours which are still available. The Settanta jacket now also comes in new colours each season which are available here at Atom Retro. Carrying on the pinstripe theme, the BB1 FILA polo shirt with its contrasting collar and cuffs is another Bjorn Borg style that remains hugely popular to this day.

During the 80s, FILA moved to the forefront of sports fashion. Football fans, or 'Casuals' as they became known, adopted brands including FILA, Tacchini and Fred Perry into their 'terraces look'. The 80s Mod Casuals style was no fleeting trend, it was revived during the 90s Britpop era and again in the 00s Nick Love films, The Firm and The Business (starring Danny Dyer), ensuring that FILA reached a younger generation. FILA continues to support sport by sponsoring tennis events and even recently signing a deal with Bjorn Borg's son, Leo.

How To Wear FILA & Other Retro Sportswear Brands

Retro sports clothing is a hot streetwear trend with brands including FILA releasing popular vintage ranges. If you're into the Mod Casuals look go for top to toe sportswear; top it off with a bucket hat and wear those retro brands with pride. FILA vintage jackets, t-shirts and polos are all available in authentic 70s and 80s retro styles. Alternatively, for a more modern look, combine an individual piece such as a FILA track top or polo shirt with slim-fit jeans and retro trainers. You could even layer the look with a simple blazer for a smart casual occasion.  Check out our recommended retro sportswear in the 80s Casuals Collection.
