Does anyone here not care about what they really wear on the court?

    Sure I mean, I'll won't wear dirty, torn, or old clothes, but what I mean is that I really don't mind the brands I have, and I almost always just show up on the court with my shoes on, the socks don't have to be same brand as the shoe, I wear whatever shorts (doesn't matter to me they're all the same), and I just have on a cotton t-shirt.

    I'll wear tennis shirts from time to time, but for the most part it's any pair of shorts plus a t-shirt for me. Anyone else like this and not go out of their way to get matching outfits?

    I don't think I own a single tennis outfit.
    And yeah, I actually prefer cotton shirts to dri fit, not that I dislike dri fit, it's just that I'm used to cotton.

    I care but I hate matching brands. I only own 4 tennis specific shirts. I dont have any tennis specific shorts. I match colors often though. Sometimes I don't care as long as i can move in them.

    The only real tennis apparel I wear are shorts because of the pockets. As for the shirt, I couldn't care less. Usually I'm just wearing a Hanes undershirt.

    I couldn't care less about brands. The only preferences I have are 1) always wear polyester instead of cotton due to excessive sweating, and 2) I try to make my shirt and shorts match color-wise so I don't look too stupid out there.

    All of you should not even be allowed to call yourselfs tennis fans or even tennis players. Yes I care what I wear. And yes it must match.

    I don't care. I like to color coordinate but that's about it. I've worn Adidas wristbands with Nike shorts and shoes with Starter shorts and who knows what socks.

    Im the same, dont care.. usually just cotton shirt, cotton shorts.. cheap white socks.. not even colour matched..

    i dont know, id just feel ridiculous kitting myself out with the latest clothes, bandanas, wrist bands, whatever, without having the game to back it up

    i like to adapt this theory on court:
    "Even if you can't play like a pro you can still look like one."

    Brands mean nothing to me, as long as I'm in comfortable, durable tennis shoes, 2 pair cotton socks to prevent blisters, shorts with pockets, and although originally used to just use cotton t-shirts, I now do like actual sport/tennis shirts that stay dry because I sweat like a beast and a cotton shirt sticks to me and weighs me down towards the end of the match.

    However, I just get my sports shirts from target for like 4 bucks each. I never match because of this, but most of my stuff is white or plain colors that are hard to screw up like gray, navy, tan, etc. I can't see myself spending more than 10 bucks on any piece of apparel, aside from shoes.

    I never match brands. I could care less. I buy all my tennis gear on sale. Last years stuff. I refuse to pay $65 for a shirt cause Fed\Nadal is going to wear it at the next tournament. I have no Nike or Adidas. I wear mostly kswiss, lotto, diadora, fila, and boast.

    I did see a guy who made me laugh at the court a week ago. Blue tshirt, red coaches shorts, blue spandex shorts under the red coaches shorts, white socks pulled up to his knees, 80's style sweat band on his head, and racquet ball goggles. Looked straight up 1985.

    My only requirements are 1) they must be polyester made and 2) the cheaper the better ;)

    The only thing I care about enough to make sure they match are my racket brand and tennis bag brand. I also make sure I don't wear all red on the court so I don't look like Santa hahah.
