Fila ● Settanta track jacket

How could I say that I run a streetwear blog if I never posted any Fila item?! The manufacture from Biella Italy that did the whole cycle of production in house, from the thread to the craftsmanship of the finest sportswear, is finally featured on The Maxiemillion.

I couldn’t have a better start since the spotlight today is on an iconic item that withstood the challenge of time: Bjorn Borg very own track jacket. The Swedish champ dominated tennis courts during the mid 70s and his charismatic character made the news constantly, no matter if we talk Wimbledon or his private life.

In 1975 Borg signed a contract with Fila that represented the start of the glorious Bj collection designed by Pier Luigi Rolando whose legacy lives to this very day.

Settanta track jacked gets reissued in this colorway that blinks an eye to a current style where you could wear a cargo camouflage pant with this top. In this way you would have a proper matching with the army green side panel of what Elena S is wearing on this preview.

You read it right: this colorway will drop next Fall / Winter season and never before casual leisure basics were allowed (and very much welcomed) in a streetwear outfit. But the general tennis inspiration that sportswear is giving to street fashion is relevant like never before and an item with such legendary status is more than legit.

At current time Borg is a lifetime ambassador of the brand and this alone makes you understand in what measure this sport hero from the past made his mark in history. Now that you are recognizing the actual value both of the brand and of this item, what you have to do is wait patiently a few more months but in the meantime I have an idea: go give a look to Fila Website. There you will find a Settanta track jacket anyway, even if it’s a different color…
