TGIF Shopping: Wimbledon Inspired All-Whites

Wimbledon, the oldest tennis tournament in the world, kicked off at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London on Monday, June 29, and will extend through to July 12.

For those unfamiliar, Wimbledon is one of four Grand Slams, the only tournaments that can reach five sets, thus earning them the nickname: the methamphetamine of sports.

The longest match ever was 11-hour, 5-minute affair back in 2010.

Of equal importance: It’s the only tournament players HAVE to wear white. No exceptions. Not even for Roger Federer, who in 2013 was dinged for the orange soles of his Nike shoes which were deemed to be in violation of this code.

“Any undergarments that either are or can be visible during play (including due to perspiration) must also be completely white except for a single trim of color no wider than one centimeter,” Wimbledon’s rules state.

Never one to break such strict rules, we thought in solidarity to the great players competing (Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova), we’d put together a round-up of Wimbledon whites to keep you looking fresh and clean.

Whether they inspire you to live out your tennis player aspirations… well, that’s on you.
