Retired tennis player Sergio Tacchini founded Sandys in 1966 and within a few years renamed the brand after his own name. Originally Tacchini manufactured sportswear and shoes to his tennis colleagues. Experimenting with colours and textures, Tacchini’s collection stood out against the standard white tennis kits. Over the years, Sergio Tacchini has had many well-known sponsorships, including world No.1, Novak Djokovic. On screen, Tacchini has become a staple of eighties styling and has had placement in some iconic productions such as The Firm, The Business and more recently cult classic Breaking Bad.
