    Memo: tennis apparel execs: Not all of us want to wear monotone crews

    Good to see high collars featuring on mens' tennis polos again. The pointy, firm ones with all the retro appeal of Rosewall-Laver WCT c.1972. Superb stylistic throwbacks done with a modern relaxed flourish. I'm all in on these.

    Maybe the designers at HEAD were inspired by Mad Men's Don Draper and his awesome casualwear (esp. the recent episode when he seduced ex-wife Betty at summer camp)

    There was a thread about Head taking its apparel line in house, so obviously a good move.

    ^^^ If that's the case then good for them. There are minor graphic elements in the range that seem to hint at an individual approach to design.

    These styles would garner the usual excitement among the fanbois if a Swoosh or Three Stripes was affixed to the chest instead of the Head logo.
