who wore short shorts?

by

Fred Perry capitalized on what would have been the 100th anniversary of its namesake tennis pro by outfitting its current spokesathlete — Andy Murray — will a full kit inspired by company designs from the ’50s and ’60s.

Andy’s items all have his monogram stitched under Fred Perry’s iconic laurel logo. The pieces in white are the polo (with green laurel and tipping), the short shorts, and a leather bag; in ivory are a cable v-neck weather and a cable slip-over. We love that two other sponsors, RBS and Highland Spring, get real estate even on the sweater.

Fun fact: As a smoker, Perry originally wanted to use a pipe as the company’s logo but Tibby Wegner, his manager, said he “didn’t think the girls would go for it” so Perry agreed to go with the laurel instead.

Shoes: Andy and the folks at Nike dressed him in the non-RFed version of the Zoom Vapor VI. Buy: $115, nike.com.

Scoreline: Murray lost in the semis of Wimbledon to Roddick in the battle of the Andys. The four-setter was pretty tight: 4-6, 6-4, 6-7 (7), 6-7 (5). Alas, the Brits will have to wait until next year to possibly crown one of their own as a Wimbledon title winner.

More: A few more shots, including a pic of his bag, his practice tees, etc.; all after the cut…
