Wimbledon is upon us and that means the best tennis players in the world competing for millions of dollars and a dress code so white it makes an albino polar bear look tan by comparison. We’ve dedicated coverage elsewhere poking fun at Wimbledon’s dress code, but here we’d like to celebrate the uniformly clean and unfettered style that the same code brings to the table. Read below to find selections of great gear and clothing inspired by Wimbledon’s unmistakable fashion sensibility.
Head Youtek Speed Tennis Racquet
The Head Youtek is a versatile tennis racquet of generous proportion and a clean white composite. With an open 16/19 string pattern, a forgiving sweet-spot, and a length that goes just beyond the norm, the Youtek gives intermediate to advanced tennis players a subtle advantage of power and grace.
Club Monaco Contrast-Tipped Stretch-Cotton Pique Polo Shirt
This casually elegant polo exudes all kinds of refreshing charm thanks to a crisp white profile underscored by black tipping at the pocket. A touch of elastane allows for flexibility and enhanced comfort. Expect a truly adaptive shirt perfect for virtually any occasion.
Polo Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Cotton-Pique Shorts
Another entry that emanates with cleanliness and comfort, the Ralph Lauren Cotton-Pique shorts are part of a special collection honouring Wimbledon’s 130th anniversary. The shorts are made from 100% cotton and use an elasticated drawstring waist to deliver a perfect balance of style and breathability.
Apple Watch Sport
More than any other modern brand, Apple has done the most to advance an aesthetic of the unblemished and approachable design. The Apple Watch Sport is everything one would expect from the brilliant company and the ideal companion for Wimbledon’s sanitary dress code and timeless reputation.
Adidas Originals Stan Smith
Clean, buoyant and legendary, the Stan Smith by Adidas Originals has returned from hiatus to stake its claim as the premier tennis shoe for players and enthusiasts alike. Colour options vary but of course, we’re touting the all-white version as the choice shoe to couple with Wimbledon’s dress code. The Stan Smith uses premium leather and a rubber outsole to give your foot ideal support as you zig-zag across the tennis court, or rather while you stand to cheer as someone much better than you zig-zags across the tennis court at Wimbledon.
Stance White Out 2 Socks
What would the topic of white gear and clothing be without the mention of socks? Stance kicks it old school with the White Out 2, a traditional athletic sock made of pure cotton and featuring an elastic arch. The White Out 2s also have some black stripes along the top, making them a somewhat ironic inclusion since black stripes might be against the rules according to the staunch folks running Wimbledon.
Stussy Heavy Canvas Duffel
The Stussy Heavy Canvas Duffel flaunts a minimalist white aura and ample dependability thanks to the use of sturdy materials. This is a bag for those who like to keep things clean and reliable and say more with less. But if the all-white colour is too bright for your liking you can take a look at the rest of our favourite duffle bags.
Bose QuietComfort 20 Earbuds
When the roar of the crowd is getting too monotonous or you simply find yourself with some downtime, consider the Bose QuietComfort 20 Earbuds. Bose has essentially mastered the arts of noise cancellation and earlobe amenity so if you want to tune out distraction and tune in to some great music, the QuietComfort 20s have you covered in style.
