Vintage Olympics attire

With the excitement for this year's London-based Olympics about to reach fever pitch, anyone who's over the age of 100 will remember a different kind of excitement for the first time the capital hosted the event back in 1908.

For one, there were probably less local cafés promising Olympic-sized breakfasts for extortionate prices. Secondly, the fashion was rather different. While the newfangled team GB kits have recently been unveiled, Eastie Empire have chosen to remind us what athletes were wearing at the turn of the 20th century.

Their collection promises to bring a vintage feel to your next work-out, as displayed in some of the best pieces below.

You can buy them all from ASOS.
