If you spend any time around the All England Club during Wimbledon, as I did for several hours last Monday, you will begin to notice that many people are wearing what might be described as junior kits: a lot of the men are wearing T-shirts and shorts. While women tend to opt for summer dresses or skirts.
But the starter kit, as the name suggests, is only a starting point. Some in the crowd wore jackets or three-piece suits. Others used the tunics as an accessory of sorts, draping them over their shoulders or tying them across their bodies or around their waists.
Wimbledon is notorious for requiring athletes to wear white. Most spectators’ attire included at least one white item, often also white tennis shoes. And it wouldn’t be a British tennis tournament without more than a few smart-looking hats.
