Watching the French Open finals match between Nadal and Djokovic Sunday morning (before rain delayed the it until the next day) was a reminder of what a marathon of activity tennis can be. Nadal in particular was sprinting all over the court, getting his racket on even the most impossible balls. Both men were dressed strictly for heavy sport, but images like this one of Fred Perry winning the tournament in 1933 show a more dapper game underway.

These shirts from the brand, founded by the eponymous tennis giant in 1952, celebrate its 60th anniversary. Replicas of Fred Perry‘s original shirt from that year, they come in six colorways (white, light fawn, maroon, glacier blue, old navy and black) and bear a commemorative laurel crest. In 2012, they look stronger off-court with some tattoos and a brooding mug.
