Forget About It: Luxury Fila Velour Style at 80s CC
Get that luxury sportswear and Soprano look with our range of classic Fila Velour track top and track pants.
There’s always been something special about classic sportswear in velour. Something which has also been closely associated with the sportswear mafia look, and these guys don’t mess about when it comes to clothes. Back in the 80s and 90s if they weren’t wearing $1000 suits they could be seen hanging around their local restaurants and bars kitted out head to toe in Fila Velour tracksuits. In the HBO TV series the Sopranos, the main character Tony Soprano is regularly featured wearing the luxurious Velour track tops from the Italian sportswear brand, maybe it’s the Italian connection or just the fact they look cool as. Its not just the ‘mafia connection’ however with the Velour appeal, obviously the original casual look owed a lot to the luxury aesthetic, with Velour a material that has always been associated with one-upmansip. Fila classics like the original Terrinda track top became a casual favourite for its luxury velour fabric adding an even greater touch of class to what was already considered a premium sportswear label. As sportswear made a move away from just being worn for physical activity, Velour played a key role in this transition, with track tops and tracksuits becoming the in look for people wanting that luxury sportswear look.
