places like kohls and other department stores sell non-brand name clothes. same exact thing as nike, just without the logo, less than half the price

Yeah, I use their shirts. They're comparable to Nike and Adidas stuff. The shirts are thin, light, and really breathable. It's good stuff.

I really like Target's C9 Tech polos, they are thick and fit well and dry out quickly. I think I'm going to get more of them soon, the colors are pretty good too.

Walmart..they have a brand "starter" that maybe owned by Nike. Check it out and tell me what you think

I like Kohls. They don't have brand names but their dri-fit's are good looking and feel good.

I've found good stuff at Macy's. You'd think they are expensive, but they're not... good dri-fit type stuff for $15/shirt. I'm also on the Kohl's bandwagon, they have some good stuff that's cheap.

But... I would like to know why cheap clothes have to have necks cut for walruses. Every cheap dri-fit shirt i've tried at Target has a neck that a walrus could fit into. It's so uncomfortable.

I remember years ago "Starter" was a top name in athletic wear...they made all the MLB baseball jackets. Than they got bought out by Nike who turned them into an entry level brand sold in places like Walmart and K-Mart. This was all done so that Nike could get a piece of the discount retailer action without cheapening the "Nike" name and image.

You don't have Target in Canada? :shock: I'd gladly trade you a Target for a Tim Hortons.

Agreed on the C9 polos. They are very high quality for the price, and come in a multitude of colors. The Targets around me recently replaced the cool blue color with a red color, and they put all the blue ones at half price on the clearance rack. Those were a steal at 8 bucks. They also have a few colors of light, breathable shorts with nice pockets that work well for tennis.

I also like the basic drifit c9 t-shirts (like Davydenko wore at last years US open). They are cheap, light, and breathable, and the size small shirts I get certainly do not have "walrus necks", because I hate those as much as anyone.

I have found some really excellent tennis clothes- even shoes- at thrift shops. For 3 or 4 dollars you can get name brand shirts and shorts in perfect condition that would cost 40 or fifty dollars new.

Of course it takes more time than just going to a shop where you know they have dozens of items just waiting there, but that's what make it sort of like a treasure hunt.

Ross, J C Penny, Marshals, all sell Nike tennis clothing for 15 bucks and less. Still good quality.

I have a few C9 shirts from Target that are pretty nice.

I have two pair of Russell shorts that are good. You can find cheap adiddas gear at Kohl's or Macys.

Also check out some of the discounted stuff at TW. Some of the "team" lines of clothing are pretty cheap.

Best source of cheap clothes are free shirts from tournaments.

Nike, or Adidas outlet/factory stores. You can get all they're good stuff for real cheap. Some of it's current, some of it's from the previous season, but that doesn't really matter. I don't think they're worse quality in any way.

Yep, Starter used to be "the brand" in the early to mid 90's. Everyone wanted a Starter jacket or parka. They did a bunch of football, baseball and basketball...it's too bad that Nike destroyed it.

Along the same lines....what happened to Mossimo? It went from Nordstrom's to Target

Costco occassionally has dri fit like adidas, nike, russell, etc. at decent price in good quality

Mossimo was bought out by a company called "Iconix" a while back. From what I understand, Iconix buys out once popular status symbol brands that have fallen on hard times. I assume the thinking on their part is that these brands still have name recognition and just need to be marketed in other ways. In the case of Mossimo, they made it a lower level brand.

yeah, I forgot about outlet stores. about an hour away from where I live is an Adidas outlet where I got a nice tennis polo, a couple crews and a T for $20 or so

Yeah in Sams Club I recently saw 3 different Prince tennis polos with matching shorts for $11 each. Costco I have also seen Fila and Polo in addition to the adidas and Nike stuff. It is very variable though, you never know what they are going to have.

Btw, does Prince still have a clothing outlet online?

I like the C9's too, great for playing almost any kind of sport and you can wear them to just go outside.

I like the C9 stuff as well. Also TW or outlet store for the older lines of the adidas and Nike stuff. Also depending on the location, Dillards and Macy's carry Nike and Adidas tennis apperal and you can find great deals when they go on clearance.

Try stores like TJ Max and Marshall's. Also look for soccer jerseys, same materials but usually sold cheaper than tennis branded clothing.

Macy's is where its at. Although they don't have a huge selection, quite small actually but usually every quarter they get a Nike set of clothing for tennis. Usually one of the seasons' dri-fit collared tops, the regular constructed Fiber shorts, and sometimes also some shorts from that season also, and sometimes a t-shirt/dri-fit t-shirt. Those will be on sale on and off, but the good deals are when they move them to clearance when new stuff comes in. I was just in Macy's today- and if you are into those Nadal Carpis (YUCK!), you could get them for 21 dollars or so. Keep in mind not all Macy's carry the Nike tennis clothing.
