    Hi all :)

    I'd like to compare several Fed's shorts color :

    - AO 2011 (grey sage)
    - USO 2011 (anthracite)
    - Spring 2012 (Khaki)

    I have the USO one, and it's a bit more greenish than grey actually.
    I'd like to compare the 2 others with this USO, side by side, to know how they really looks like in person.
    Does anyone own these 3 shorts, and could take a photo of them all ???

    THANK YOU.

    AO 2011 is nice. The vertical stripes alternate between black and... darker black.

    Also, I have a question about some WHITE Federer's 2011 shorts.

    I have the spring one (Cincinnati) and the summer one (French Open) :
    The French open is a bit transparent (enough so you can see the pockets and zip through). Spring is really more opaque.

    My question:
    What about the FALL one (grey stripe, Toronto) and WINTER one (navy stripe, London) ???

    Thanks

    There will always be subtle differences, whether its how clear they are, or maybe the consistency of the material.

    Yes, the "transparency" is maybe randomly made when a given model is produced...
    That said, I wonder if - for example - 10 "French Open" shorts, will all be the same, or will all have different transparency :confused:

    i have some NET shorts and one plaid short, i also have the ones delpo wore last year( the ones that are 85% poly and 15% spandex) the question is how are the fed shorts compared to these? are they comfy? is it worth getting one or should i stick to the medium line ones?

    I only have Fed's shorts. can't compare to NET line.
    Fed's are very soft & comfy anyway, and I prefer the zip+button closure, instead of elastic belt. I also have some Nadal's short for the same reasons.
