    I haven't been as into tennis in quite a few years but I did some hitting recently and got a few new things. I think what really did it was receiving the 25% coupon from TW:oops:[​IMG] Anyway, I think I got bit by the bug again and now am spending too much time looking for other things on the net. It's usually been warm-up stuff for me...tops mostly...sweat shirts or track suits. I like looking at the soccer stuff too and there are just so many good looking things out there.

    Anyone else have this problem or do you just take it easy and buy what you need/want every now and then?

    Yeah I figured it's more common with shoes[​IMG] I did buy some new ones but I went with ones that were on sale and I think they were the cheapest of the bunch. Of course UPS stopped by after I left for the weekend and I was planning on using them over the weekend[​IMG]

    I got the coupon in an email. It's good on the liquidation stuff and it lasts for a whole month (April 15-May 15)

    +1. I see the previews of the Nike shirts, tell myself they're nothing special and I'll pass. But when I see them in person, I cave.

    The reason why i cant stop buying....
    1. Federer's huge fan
    2. Nike's items is really comfortable, especially 80%Polyester 12%Elastane
    3. The retail price in my country (Hong Kong) is really cheap, plus i get 30% off even new item ;)

    Cheers

    I usually only buy polyester shirts that I really like, and although I have bought quite a few I never go for a "full collection" where I get the shorts bandanas and wristbands too... though I can try to match them if I wanted to!
    i'm more into shoes, but they're much more expensive @_@

    personally i dont think tennis designs are as good as they used to be...i havent like nadals clothes since 2010, djokovic was ok with the adidas falcon, and i think i liked federers shirts better when he wasnt wearing collars. the designs used to be more agressive, ie - reebok roddick subway shirt or hewitts old snakeskin nike shirt. now everything seems more bland, except for a couple adidas shirts that are brightly colored these days

    And then there are a couple Babolat items on TWE that caught my eye.
    And then there's the soccer stuff. this is one that I'm interested in
    [​IMG]

    I'm actually looking at these for casual wear, not necessarily for playing tennis in. I just find it addictive though like I want to keep buying them. I know I don't need 5 jackets, especially in the summer in California[​IMG]

    Must hide debit card!!!:oops:

    Another question...what's the biggest order you have done for clothes? Also has anyone ordered something, thought they were done and then went back and ordered more like a day or two later?

    I used to but toned it down after realizing I can't wear them all even while playing 3x a week. Gave away some of my old stuff too.

    I used to buy at least 2 edge/adizero crews and 1 short per line. So that's four crews in a year. Now I limit to 1 shirt per line.

    Doesn't hurt that adidas usually runs through the same colors so you can mix and match.

    I am constantly doubling up on RF stuff from 2004 to 2009 as those are my favourite years.

    The 45 federer shirts I have to the right, plus his jackets. To the left on the shelves some recent nadal stuff, plus other Nike shirts from del Porto and other guys over the past 2 years. Also fed cotton shirts, and Nike shorts.

    I don't think Nike released any of those. It is interesting as Nadals Olympic set can be found. The bandanas and wristbands are on the Bay occasionally. The closest bandana to Feds Roland Garros 09 is his Khaki/Red from last year which I believe is Dubai?

    Audjpy, do you collect other stuff besides tennis gear like blu rays or DVDs?

    Actually Fedzie, I am curious about some of the blue shirts you have[​IMG]

    heehee, j/k. I have seen your pic before. That's crazy!!! What are the blue and yellow striped outfits? Looks to be the second and fourth from the left.

    Actually your picture kind of reminds me of Floyd Mayweather JR and 50 Cent showing off their money. I hate you again[​IMG]

    I forget the actual name. But I beleive it is the Nike KO Therma Fit Training Hoody. I have the Bright Cactus, Blue Glow, & Black/Anthracite in the middle between them.

    Prices in Hong Kong are not all that cheap. And there is a serious lack of variety for tennis wear and equipment.

    I end up buying most of my stuff from TW.

    That's my experience as well. Fedal shoes sell for $200USD back in Dec'12 when I went. The used racquet price is fair though.

    Yep, and almost everything is in Asian sizing.

    Don't get me started on the court booking situation here.
