We teamed up with the University of California and specifically with their award-winning tennis department to create a unique capsule collection honouring our American vintage sport DNA and their history of succes.
UCLA Tennis has won 114 championships and has produced more professional tennis athletes than any other American college, with the most legendary alumnus being tennis legend Arthur Ashe.
The Mercer Re-Varsity is our brand new fabric applied to our classic Varsity pattern. The material is made from ECONYL, which is recycled nylon from a.o. seawaste. Econyl is ued by several haute couture brands, and we understand why; the appeal of the fabric is high, it has a matte look and feel, is water repellant and sustainable combining into a more vintage 90's look and feel. For the UCLA special edition we have a UCLA TENNIS embroidery on the chest, "CHAMPS MADE HERE" embroidery on the sleeve, two tennis rackets embroidered on the other sleeve and the UCLA seal logo on the other sleeve.
- The Mercer Varsity letters on the chest are made from chenille in matching tonal colours. The Mercer Quilted Varsity is padded with recycled PET bottles.
- Inside pocked.
- Zig-zag stitched satin Mercer label.
- Made in Portugal.
