Sergio Tacchini has been an Italian Davis Cup champion from

1959 to 1966, the year he set up a company to produce and

distribute sports apparel and footwear. He started out by

providing clothing for his former team mates and put colour

onto tennis track suits and strips for the first time.

In the seventies the first coloured tennis-wear collection

made its appearance at Wimbledon when an unforgettable

Jimmy Connors won the Wimbledon tournament.

In 1978 John McEnroe signs a 8-Year deal/contract with

this stylish clothing brand: Sergio Tacchini. By the 80's

the sponsership permits the brand to gain a placing on the

international market. Llie Nastase, Vita gerulaitid, Mat

Wilander, Pat Cash, Pete Sampras and Gabriela Sabatini

are just some of the testimonials who have contributed to

taking the Sergio Tacchini brand to the top of the tennis

world.

The sub culture 'Casuals' have been infatuated with this

brand since the 80's hence why some refer to this brand

as an 80's casuals brand. StuartsLondon.com back in the

days was one of the only west London shop to stock

this collection, the Football supporters would pick up

on a particular colour bearing resemblance to their

team. The Italian sport brand is considered as one of the

main retro brands around today. Stuartslondon.com is
