Sergio Tacchini Info

Sergio Tacchini known for his talents on the tennis court, at 17 he became a professional tennis player and went on to win Italian champion and also competed in the Davis cup in which he won five times in singles and one in the doubles. In 1966 he created  sportswear which was comfortable and stylish to wear when playing tennis, he loved to experiment with colours and fabrics and designed some amazing sportswear pieces, the brand went on to expand its range for other sports such as a fitness, golf, sailing and ski range as well as a leisure range.  The Sergio Tacchini clothing brand went on to sponsor many well known tennis players in the 70’s and 80’s from Mats Wilander, John McEnroe and Pat Cash not only tennis but Sergio Tacchini also went to sponsoring the Italian basketball team and F1 drivers, it seems sportsmen could not get enough of this bright and stylish brand. Even today Sergio was worn by Novak Djokovic in the Hopman Cup in 2011.

We know this brand has a huge following in the sports world but even more in the fashion world Sergio Tacchini was one of the most popular casual sports brand in the 80’s & 90s every young man who wanted to make a name for himself with regards to fashion and style wore Sergio, it was all about the colour the brighter the better from pillar box red to bright yellow track suits, in the 80s the recession hit everyone hard so fashion lovers would save and save to afford the latest Sergio out fit to wear out to football or down the pub with the lads. This brand was also worn by “Football Casuals” or as some people call them football hooligans, in the 80s football hooliganism was a huge part of life, hard core football fans from rival teams would meet up before and after the match to have a tear up! Firms like ICF (Westham) would arrange with rival firms where to meet, you could easily spot which were firm boys and which ones were everyday football fans the tell tale sign was their clothing all of the firms would get dressed up in their latest Sergio to show off how well dressed they are it was all about image and status.

Today you with find Sergio Tacchini still has a cult following and the brand was showcased in the films directed by Nick Love the Firm and Football Factory where it shows football casuals wearing Sergio Tacchini looking cool and trendy. The 80’s retro look is very much in, maybe not kitted out head to toe in a full track suit but you will find that a lot of young lads and men are sporting a bit of Sergio from Sergio Tacchini polo shirts, jumpers, track tops or t shirts along with the other brands that are popular.

Sergio Tacchini has definitely made a name for himself with regards to his Tennis career and a designer clothing brand which is still as popular today.
