Polo Ralph Lauren unveils new Wimbledon eco uniforms
Polo Ralph Lauren has revealed the new on-court uniforms for the Wimbledon tennis championships that begin on 27 June.
Marking the US fashion house’s 17th anniversary as the official outfitter of the championships, this year’s uniforms will use “more sustainable materials in on-court styles for optimal performance”.
So all on-court officials, including chair umpires, line umpires, ball boys and girls, will wear outfits that “combine the heritage of the brand with modern fabrications and silhouettes”.
The umpire uniform features “variations of timeless Ralph Lauren style”, featuring a belted back umpire sports coat lined with a commemorative Ralph Lauren designed signature Wimbledon print and adorned with both Polo Ralph Lauren and Wimbledon emblems. This is paired with a wide Bengal stripe shirt that includes recycled material and stylish white trouser or white skirt with pearl button closure.
Ball boys and girls will wear Ralph Lauren Polo Shirts “reimagined in a navy blue and white wide stripe” that includes recycled material which incorporates features such as stretch, moisture-wicking properties and UV protection, all constructed for performance.
Line umpire uniforms are refreshed with navy cardigans featuring a white and Wimbledon green striped cuff detail which includes recycled Coolmax fibres, providing superior comfort in warm environments with extreme moisture management properties.
