Sporty Stripes: Classic Track Tops At 80s CC
Our latest collection of track tops features sporty stripes, exclusive styles & classic track silhouettes like the adidas Firebird.
You can talk about “athlesiure” and the modern day sportswear phenomenon but the fact is the track top will always be the king when it comes sportswear. Originally designed for track athletes to wear during breaks, the track top was one of the first ever sportswear styles to also be worn for everyday use. Whether it was keeping athletes warm after 100m hurdle sprints or worn by the casuals with a pair of jeans and adidas trainers, the track top is undeniably the most quintessential sportswear silhouette ever. Our latest collection of track tops to arrive at 80s Casual Classics sees some sporty stripes (sadly not the go faster ones!) as well as some new exclusive styles. Sporty stripes have long been associated with track tops just like for example the adidas Firebird track top or the Fila 5 Stripe which both utilised stripes to their designs.

First up from our latest selection of classic track top styles is the Fila 5 Stripe. An original archive White Line design from Pier Luigi Rolando, the Fila 5 Stripe captures the magical 80s era of tennis icons, pop stars & casual sportswear. A famous 80s style that was originally worn by Wham’s Andrew Ridgeley on the Club Fantastic tour and of course spotted on Tammer Hassan in the golf course scene from The Business.
