The label has taken a knock in the UK, but the vintage tennis sweater by Slazenger Heritage shows it at its best.
That’s because there’s a difference between Slazenger and Slazenger Heritage. The former is a catch-all at Sports Direct, the logo on a variety of budget items in that store. Slazenger Heritage is at the other end of the spectrum. A hint if what might have been.
This is the Slazenger of James Bond and countless tennis champions. You might recall I featured the James Bond Goldfinger sweater by Slazenger Heritage a few years back. Still available and is an absolutely top-notch piece of knitwear.
This is very much in the same groove. One of three tennis sweaters remade/reissued by Slazenger Heritage. Or rather, by Cotton Project S.L., which makes niche vintage collections using the Slazenger Heritage name in its own Spanish factory.
Of the three designs, this is the winner for me, a mid-20th-century design with enough class and detail to stand out from the crowd.
It’s made from a ‘naturally insulating’ extra fine merino wool blend, with a cable knit design at the front, a high-neck collar and the Slazenger logo embroidered in gold, plus double tipping in the collar and cuffs.
It’s a limited edition, too, which is why it’s so pricey. €175 if you want one of these in your winter wardrobe.
