The Ellesse Becker Track Top Celebrates The Original Wimbledon Style From 1985

The Ellesse Becker track top revives the original style as worn by the wiry West German wunderkid when he lifted the Wimbledon trophy in 1985.

Boris Becker may have been in the news more recently about “non-tennis” related issues but we’re not here to judge. Nothing will ever take away the fact that he will always be one of the greatest tennis legends to grace the green grass of Wimbledon’s centre court, the first ever unseeded player to win Wimbledon & the youngest ever male to win a major Grand Slam trophy at the mere age of 17 in 1985. Did we also mention he was one of the original pin up boys for Ellesse at their height of the Italian brands’ success following in the footsteps of Guillermo Vilas & Chris Evert. If anyone put Ellesse on the map it was Boris Becker and the track top he wore to the lift the prestigious Wimbledon trophy in is probably just about as iconic as it gets when it comes to classic sportswear from the 1980s. Released at the peak of peacocking and casual fashion, the Ellesse Becker track top now arrives at 80s Casual Classics in all its OG glory.

Before the wiry West German wunderkid caused a standing ovation on the seated terraces of Wimbledon’s legendary centre court, Ellesse had already made their mark on the Casual world of one-upmanship, trainers & track tops. However, when Becker showed the tennis world his speedy sprints and gravity defying dives towards the net, it was almost like Ellesse were there on centre court with him. The playboy appeal of the Italian sportswear had found a new champion, Becker was the new kid on the block & the Ellesse Wimbledon track top quickly became an icon of mid 1980s casual panache courtesy of the 17 year old West German.
