    That's very nice. The perfect symbiose between classic and contemporary..

    He looks like a captain of a ship.

    maximo - you reckon nike will release a tennis themed jacket like this fed one?

    i heard also that the current track jackets that fed is sporting with the high collars and RF on chest are strictly limited edition for him only and there are zero plans to make public... such a shame as they are super cool!

    Yes, it will be released at the AO.

    It will have a small RF logo like the one in the pic with a chest zip beside it.

    There will be a white and black one.

    The ones he is wearing now won't be released tho.

    P.S they will be very pricey however.

    Yep, it will have the high collar and the hem of the black version will have a red stripe all the way round it. It looks dope tbh.

    A poster named BS1 sent me a few pics of the Nike Spring 2010 line.

    Its not that impressive, but the Nadal and Federer warm ups stand out the most.

    Have you looked at the Fred Perry track jackets?

    They look exactly the same, with the stripe on both sleeves.

    What was Nike thinking? Federer didn't even look happy having to wear it...

    Damn, is there any article of clothing that Roger Federer CAN'T pull off? Man, I thought that cardigan was gay, but when RF put it on, it made me want to get one, but when Brad Gilbert threw one on during his commentary he just looked like a big fat joke.

    all this blazer and suit stuff is so lame. Can't he wear what other players are wearing. How big of an ego do you have to have to think yourself special enough that you can prance around in this stuff? I liked the more humble version of Federer a la 2003-2005.

    We see this side of federer everywhere....

    He's always so elegant.

    He should try something else to change it up once in a while.

    You guys are not professional stylist or really know about fashion and I'm not saying i do.
    Anything you guys see in fashion magazine or runway will be horrible...if this this Fed's outfit looks horrible.

    Exactly

    And people are giving Rafa a hard time because Nike made him go to sleeves and a collar, but Fed looks like f-ing david bowie from 1984 and he's the coolest thing around since sliced bread. I do not get it, Fed is sooo boring.

    It just looks so pretentious. I like Federer, but his obsession with the white and gold and the monogram and all that is just disturbing. Nike doesn't make this stuff for the public, obviously; they make it to get attention from the media. Who's going to wear that? Captain Stubing, perhaps, but that's about it.

    I'd wear it too, minus the RF logo, plus a more fitted design (how I like my clothes). If those conditions were met, it'd be a really sweet jacket
