    I got a fila sport outfit recently and its pretty nice

    Can anyone compare it to what TW sells for the reg Fila clothing?

    This is what i got and I really like it, and would like to find out if the quality is the same as the reg fila.

    I haven't tried the Sport line, but I have been very impressed with the Fila Essenza and Collezione crews. These are actually much better made than the recent Nike and Adidas products I have purchased. I loaded up on every color of solid (non-printed, no pattern) crews (with the sewn-on F-box logo) from the online Fila Store at substantial savings. I am curious about comparisons of the Sport products to the regular stuff -- did not know there was such a thing until your post here. Looks very nice, but I can see a difference in the sleeve length/fit. The ones I bought have longer, roomier sleeves that also happen to have mesh venting that goes up the length of the center of the sleeve and then extends over the shoulders. The center of the back section is also mesh vented. If memory serves me, these are also SPF30 fabric. Length runs a little longer than average. Like I said, very impressive materials and construction.

    hey buddy thanks for the info. I really appreciate it

    can you check something for me?

    my sport shirt is a 2 way stretch not 4 way. when I pull it apart from itself it does not stretch up and down length wise, but it does stretch across the body.

    Can you tell me which way or both ways, how the lines you have stretch?
    Also the shorts. My sport shorts stretch very minimal up and down and just slightly more across.

    I hope I made sense

    Thanks


    edit: there is a slight stretch up and down but the across stretch is like 10x greater

    ^^^^^

    I guess mine stretch equally in all directions. Range of motion with the raglan sleeves (one piece all the way to the collar) is very good. Almost nothing good left at Fila's online store after closeouts, so TW is your best bet if you are looking for this type of gear.

    I have one F-Sport shirt and several of the shirts Tipsarevic has been wearing over the last 2 years. The Tipsy shirts feel more durable and the material is a little nicer but the F-Sport shirt is on par comfort-wise. I'm actually very impressed with the comfort and quality of the F-Sport shorts. You can get them pretty cheap at department stores in the US. One guy I play doubles with on a regular basis seems to have about half a dozen of the F-sport sleeveless shirts and wears them all the time because they're his favorites.

    is the "sport" line considered the "lower" line from fila?
