Taking as his inspiration the clean court shoe with the irreverent blue smile on its toe, Todd has created a collection that took the sartorial codes of racquet sports then reinvented them for today’s modern mavericks who have their own unique personal style, both on-and-off the court.
The sneaker was originally developed in the 1930s for its namesake Jack Purcell, the Canadian badminton player, who was a natural at hyping his sport and his eponymous kicks. Since then, the original court shoe became a go-to for everyone from tennis champions to creatives who redefined their crafts including James Dean, Ray Eames and Kurt Cobain.
The polo takes many of the classic elements of racquet sports apparel and reinvents them for the modern maverick. The chest pocket features an embroidered Jack Purcell Racquet Club logo featuring two crossed badminton racquets and a shuttlecock. The subtle red and blue tipping on the collar and sleeve cuffs is a nod to vintage tennis attire, while the fabric is an on-trend terry cloth that has a soft, towel-like feel. Other vintage design details include a jock tag above the shirt’s front left hem and a neck tape in the same pink that runs throughout the collection. So, if you’re looking for a fresh take on the classic tennis shirt, look no further.
