Short et chaussures en toile pour l’Anglais Fred Perry (à droite), futur fondateur de la marque éponyme, et pantalon à pinces pour Christian Boussus, en demi-finale du tournoi en 1936. Un look très « Garden Party », bien loin des tenues sportwear d’aujourd’hui. On adore ! Mention spéciale aux chaussettes blanches roulées sur les tennis de Perry ! ROLAND GARROS
