Can anyone tell me how this shirt fits in comparison to the '08 French Open shirt or the Manhattan Polo that Federer wore during last year's US Open?

I found the '08 French Open shirt to be fitted but OK in my regular size (medium), but the US Open shirt to be a little bit too tight in my regular size (though I still wear it).

I'm 5'10" and 150 pounds.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chopin

It fits true to size compared to last years Manhattan polo which is practically form fit.

No problem. I know the two I have fit nice whereas the Manhattan polo I got in the same size is skin tight.

Yeah, do you have any of the other Federer polos from this year or last? The general consensus is that this year's polos are fitted, but a little looser than last year's.

This is my favorite Fed shirt from the recent past. I especially wanted one since it signifies his FO victory. I am roughly the same size as the OP. I tried the shirt on in July and it just didn't work for me. I think I tried a Medium and Large, but the cut of the shirt just didn't work for me. The sleeves were cut short (and weird). The collar was made out of something that made it sit funny. The biggest thing is the way it lays at the waist. Like I said, I am about same size as OP, but I have put on a little weight around the waist over the years. I think this cut of shirt would work best with a long trunk, skinny arms, and slender waist. The shirt is awesome, but just not built for me.

To me the 08 French Open fits a bit tighter around the shoulders compared to the current Federer polos.

To the coward who rated this thread 1 star: you can't beat me--you can't win. I've been here since the board was first started--you won't outlast me. I'm a winner, and I'll always be a winner.

It's a European fit so the sleeves are smaller and it's a little tighter than a normal American size. But comparing it to the Manhattan polo it is larger and looser. I do not have any other polos besides the Manhattan and two clay court colors from this season.

"This polo features a European cut with a slimmer fit with shorter sleeves. Fits true to size."

Not form fit but it's no Roddick shirt.

Thanks! Yeah my threads are controversial in the former pro player talk section and as a result certain posters follow my every movement and rate all my threads 1 star.

It's ok though because I'm a winner and I'll always be a winner. And they'll always be losers :-)
