Paul Blick Open Era, Fashion, Tennis, Retro

Hi, I'm Paul...

...and I've been passionately playing tennis for many years. I've always thought it was cool to wear vintage tennis clothes from my grandfather, who was also a passionate tennis player. That's how my love for retro tennis styles began, from polos to sports jackets. Just over a year ago, I was on the tennis court with a friend, dressed in white socks, short shorts, and a retro polo. To complete the outfit, I wondered if there were any white tennis balls available to buy. This turned out to be more difficult than expected. So, I decided on the spot with my school friend Max, who was usually found in the club restaurant, to bring white tennis balls back to the court.

Hey, I'm Max...

...and when Paul approached me with the idea, I was immediately on board. Relatively naively, we brainstormed and quickly expanded the idea towards retro fashion. However, it turned out to be a bit more challenging than expected to "just" design stylish polos and produce them sustainably—especially with the high standards that we both had for our products right from the start. But the effort paid off! Our products are unique in their combination of retro design, quality, and sustainability. And we're far from done: We're already working on new "favorites" and have many great ideas waiting to be implemented.3.5

Our vision is to set new standards, just as the Open Era did in tennis. We aim to challenge the industry, push boundaries, and set an example in terms of sustainability and quality.
