Brands will often go back to the roots of what made them successful in order to push forward. That’s what FILA has done with its latest ‘Between the Lines’ pack that brings back the iconic pinstripe design.
Pinstripes, love them or hate them, are a simple design element that completely changed how players looked on court and, back in the day, put FILA at the forefront of tennis style. From the BB1 polo to the Settanta jacket, FILA’s early tennis apparel pieces used the pinstripe wonderfully. Now, the brand is celebrating those pinstripes with this latest pack.
Featuring three models, the F-13 ($70), Original Tennis ($80), and Original Fitness, the ‘Between the Lines’ pack plays with materials to honor those pinstripes. There are two versions of the F-13 coming; the first utilizes a premium white suede upper that carries the original red and blue branding look; the second flaunts a premium navy suede upper that opts for a more tonal look. The Cream F-13 features navy pinstripes while the Navy F-13 uses white pinstripes.
For the lowtop lovers, the Original Tennis ($80) is done in white/blue/red to mimic the classic FILA branding while the Original Fitness showcases a cream look with a blue outsole for contrast. Both styles use pinstripes at the collar lining.
If you’re interested in picking up the ‘Between the Lines’ pack, March 3 is the date to know. The F-13 should retail for $70, the Original Tennis for $80, and the Original Fitness for $80.
