    How come tennis warehouse only sell the bandana in two colours - black + white. The photo is misleading and has 4 colours.
    Were the other colours were so unpopular that they went out of fashion or does tennis warehouse not stock these additional colours.

    You say they were all there during the US Open. Where have they gone now? Or is it that they don't sell at certain times of the year.

    it might be that black and white are the only colors they have left. they might have sold out of the red and blue. i didn't think any store could send Nike stuff to foreign countries. how did you get nike stuff from TW? are you lying? are you a liar? explain yourself:mad:

    Hi, CivicLx

    I don't know how I purchased from TW but at the moment I am wearing Nike shorts funnily enough. (The ones Federer wore at the Shanghai Masters - those blue ones). I don't understand this problem between not being able to buy from TW from elsewhere other an America. Why do you guys think this is anyway?

    Can you buy other brand names like Adidas,Wilson?

    hmm i thought i heard that Nike doesn't like US shops to sell overseas because it takes away business from some of the Nike shops in different countries. may sound weird, but I think that's what i heard.

    Link above goes to cheap cotton solution which is completely ussless, from it's functional point of view. Cotton won't stop sweat, so dry-fit (nylon 94%, elastan 6%) is real solution. But the price is different of cause

    Have you wear one ?? I've been wearing bandana ever since before Fed came on the scene and it helps me alot. I can't play without my head band or bandana. I really prefer the cotton bandana since it soakup alot of water and dry quickly. The dry-fit head tie is nice but it does not absorb water as well as the cotton one.

    I ordered from TW Black, White, Red (sold out blue color).. 4 pieces per each color. Black, White is the REAL nike bandana. RED is not. It seems like RED is the immitate one came from some cheap shop in China. No Nike label or Nike Packaging at all. I think that is one of the reason they take it down.. I heard that the RED, Blue and other colors only exclusively available for Europe or the pros only. I would love to have some Blue, Jade, chlorine bandanas.. It looks so cool..

    since the bandanas were for the us open season, they probably ordered only a certain amount, so once they sold out, then thats it. Its the same way with the yellow bandana that they had in 05

    Yes, I did, and didn't like it, I agree that it absorbs a lot of sweat, but can't agree that it dries out quickly, I say the opposite - dries out very slowly.

    I use own-made bandanas (93% polyster, 7% elastan), it absorbs sweat and dry "on a fly", I simply have no issues with dropps all other my face. Same story as you compare cotton or polyster t-shirts. Although there are also fans of cotton shirts, I never accept they suite better in getting moisture away :)

    Why would you want a longer tail? The Gonzo Look.
