The Sergio Tacchini brand was created by famous professional tennis player and designer of the same name, who founded his namesake company in 1966.
Sergio Tacchini was initially focused on tennis wear, making kits of elegant clothes for his tennis colleagues. The company quickly went beyond tennis and started supplying stylish clothing options for various sports. Through the ‘70s and ‘80s, Sergio Tacchini went into sponsorships with top players like John McEnroe and Vitas Gerulaitis. During the ‘90s, the Italian brand started producing leisure wear for both men and women.
