    I know Tennis-Warehouse used to carry this polo. Did anybody buy one or does anyone have experience with one? TW, will you carry this classic once again?

    I got this from a shop in the UK a couple of months ago. It looks pretty sharp.

    it's called J-Tennis. You can find them on the big auction site.

    Thanks.

    the cool thing about it, is the logo appears to be a modern one, even though there is a Bj patch on it (the Bj patch looks new too)

    I have a few original ones from the 80s and the letter F are thinner and the Bj patches look a little slightly different.

    Is there anything on the back?
    Fila likes to ruin awesome jackets/shirts with some awful logo on the back.

    nope. nothing in the back.
    It looks pretty much like the original but better IMO because the collar is smaller. I have a few original ones and the collars are bigger.
    I prefer smaller collar like this one.

    Here are the logos next to each other.
    the one on the right is the logo from the original 80's jacket.

    the letters Bj look different, but that's close enough :)

    I have this polo! It was about $49 back in the day! That was in 1970s. It would be equal to $200 now!

    I have never wore it!

    But I thought Fila was legally barred from ever using that "Bj" logo again? How were they able to use them on these re-issue clothes? I have some older re-issue Fila Borg jackets from a few years ago and they do not have the "Bj" logo on them.
