    I got a Fed Track Jacket during the US Open off of the bay and my grandfather wanted to try it on and he noticed that the zipper was on the left and he commented that if the zipper on a full-zip jacket is on the left, it is a women's jacket.

    do any of my fellow males on here think this is true and that Nike designed a women's jacket for the number one player in the world?

    I hate that about the jacket, it bites having the zipper on the left.

    Its a wierd fit, not a womans fit.

    No it is not a women's jacket. Do you ever had a Ralph Lauren jacket? They also have their zipper on the left. Don't ask me why, but I can tell you it is not because it was originally a women's jacket or something like that. Maybe because it is exclusive?

    I have a Lacoste jacket with the same thing, zipper on the left side. Found it in the men's section so pretty sure it's not a woman's jacket. Just weird and needs getting use to.

    I saw one go for $710 recently.

    That's how it is in the military. Buttons, zippers and belt buckles are to the left in the womens' uniforms.

    wow. i imagine the person who bought the jacket can't come to the courts with just the federer track jacquet. he would also have to have the shirt, shorts, shoes, racquet(s), bag. That's serious $$$ :shock:

    It is, they mean when it is loosened (at the bottom), it is still on the left side of the jacket and not on the right.

    It seems that more expensive jackets or jackets geared towards richer people have zippers on the left. All but one of my jackets have the zipper on the right side because it is a men's jacket. The only jacket I have with a zipper on the left is a jacket from the Nike Sportswear line.

    Having the zipper or button on the left side all of a sudden makes it a woman's jacket? Ridiculous stuff, sounds really outdated
