The Business Of Classic Fila With 80s Casual Classics
We celebrate ‘The Business’ and an era of tennis icons with these classic Fila styles as worn by Danny Dyer & Björn Borg.
If you didn’t already know, the 80s Casual Classics story really started to blow up after the release of ‘The Business’ in 2005. We were trusted with the task to work alongside brands like Fila & Sergio Tacchini to bring back key 80s sportswear styles from the era that were featured in the film. Bringing back archive styles with exclusive colourways and re-releases has become the backbone of 80s Casual Classics over the years and you could say the rest is history. One thing that is for sure however, its the classic styles from Fila that have become some of our best sellers over the years from re-releases to updated centre court classics. As always we’ve got a vast selection of the latest Fila goodies from track tops to shorts to polo shirts in a variety of original, exclusive and classic colourways.

The Fila Vilas track top was featured heavily throughout Nick Love’s cult classic from 2005. Now back at 80s Casual Classics in its original colourway, the retro Vilas track top has become a sought after style for Fila collectors and admirers across the world. The Vilas is named after the Argentinian tennis player, Guillermo Vilas, who endorsed the Italian sportswear label during the 1970s.

We’ve got more iconic apparel styles from the 2005 cult classic with the Fila Settanta polo shirt. Exclusive to 80s Casual Classics, as worn by Björn Borg throughout his celebrated professional tennis career and arguably the most memorable. Classic Fila styles don’t really get much better with the iconic pin stripes, contrasting collar and cuffs as well the Fila ‘F’ branding to the chest.

Next up we’ve got the Fila Vilas shorts, a great accompaniment to any holiday or summer outfit, as well as being a key style from the Business. The classic Fila tennis shorts feature the signature piping detail to the pockets and waistband, perfect for looking ‘the business’ and some pool side swagger during the warmer months.
