    for anyone interested Nike are selling a extremely limited number of his red Olympics shirt in Niketown London. only difference is that it doesnt have the RF below the buttons. the material is identical and the collar is stiff like the wimby shirts etc 9i actually have a playing shirt of his from wimby and this red version is same in many ways)

    its expensive so beware - £100!!!!!

    By the time i arrive the shirts are all going to be sold, £100 is a bit too much anyway for a shirt.

    Nobody in their right mind would pay US$200 for a shirt to sweat in.

    They don't have on the website information about shipping to USA. I don't think they do. Do you know anywhere else that might ship to USA???

    Thanks.

    Actually, not true. Nike sells a lot of clothes in Europe that they don't sell in the USA. I don't know why. This is not the only Nike tennis shirt that's sold in Europe but is not sold in the US. There are many on that Nike UK website. It always seems that Europe gets the better looking clothes.

    I agree. Have you seen some of the polos Nike is selling on that site??

    Reminds me of the old Sampras Polos. I want to buy some. :(

    Really odd- the first couple of times I hit the link it did not take me to the shirt. I just tired it again after you posted this reply and it surely did take me straight to the shirt that time. Weird.

    Why not just get a regular dri-fit shirt and then stich RF on it ... 200 is a bit much for a shirt.

    I'd get one but firstly I thin roger's a bit silly with the whole RF clothing line thing and I don't like red. I would also get the nadal spain one but I don't like sleeveless and I don't like the material the shirt is done in.

    I would quite like to get one, but think it might be a little weird having a shirt for: a) a different nation, and b) with someone elses initials on. Anyone else any thoughts on this?
    I also like nadals, except for the pattern down he back

    ^^^Not that uncommon to wear a shirt with another coutnires flag/emblem.

    As for the "RF". Pole has been using the "RL" insignia for years, and are one of the biggest sellers of clothes in the world.

    Still, I want it for other reason's(collectors item)

    I just got this polo in the post and it doesn't have the RF logo or vent on the back. Also the swoosh and swiss flag are ironed on and it doesn't have button holes but has buttons? Still an awesome polo though.

    Thanks for taking the time to search for another site. In the meantime, I have a buddy who lives in England. I'm going to email him and see if he could purchase if for me.

    Why do nike then say it has the RF logo and has a picture of it, and on the other link it doesn't, the reason why is because that one is the polo that you have and not the actual one . So im pretty sure nike wouldn't be selling something thats false.

    Not at all, don't you understand what your saying doesn't make sense. Your telling me that if i call nike uk and ask them if it has the RF logo and the air vent at the back their going to say no even though it states it on their website?
