    This is a line of clothing I've been waiting to be release by Nike for years now. It's easily the best season line-up of attire I've seen from them in 2 years. The 12'' cargo shorts look great, and the abundance of colorful, versatile crews and polos is simply awesome. I know there's more to come for the US Open apparel and shoes (I'm particularly excited for Fed's black and red Vapors and polo), but this is a fantastic way to kick off the fall series of clothing. Highly impressed and will surely have a sad wallet soon!

    im excited as well! ive been looking forward to the 2012 fall line. Not really digging the winter or 2013 spring line. I believe the new vapors and polo are obsidian (dark blue) not black. luckily it wont come out until late july/early august. Ive already purchased the blue vapors and shorts already.

    Buy Fall 2012 during Spring 2013 and then they look as attractive as the clothing.

    Just to clarify, it's not black.. it's a dark navy (obsedian). But I'm also excited for the release of the navy/red vapors :D

    up to $68 for a pair of shorts.

    I wonder how many more seasons until the first $100 shirt or shorts.

    it's becoming harder for me to scoop up this stuff in the $20-25 range at various outlets and online sites.

    I'm glad to see some longer length shorts. The long lengths never bother me and I always seem to have to order a size larger than normal to get the feel I like. Glad to see this!

    Yeah the prices are still pretty crazy, as expected, but I've always been fond of the longer shorts so that is awesome. The variety of shirts and shorts in nice colorways is just great. It's actually going to be really difficult for me to commit to a shirt to buy.....there are so many nice ones to choose from now.

    I agree. Get it while you can if you really want the color, otherwise it will be a crapshoot.


    The polos are pretty close to reaching the magic $100 mark not to mention when the shoes are gettng close to crossing the $150 mark.

    I say buy what you can afford as Nike comes up with a great style one season and missing completely the next season.

    does anyone think the new rafa crew is going to be a bit longer than the standard crews/ his old crews? the picture seems to indicate it... would be really nice if they're a bit longer like the 2010 ones!

    Just checked out the new Fall 10" Woven Short at a local shop here in town. Very nice shorts. You can easily tell the difference in length compared to past collections.

    I can't remember line by line, but it is impressive. If not the best, one of the best.

    Huge order in - and the black with red Vapor 9's aren't even available yet...

    21" Outseam, you will notice a difference. They look pretty sharp too. They only had a M so I couldn't try on my size. Told me they would have more in next week.

    Wouldnt wear them on the court. I think they would look goofy on the court.

    Casual yes, court no.

    I dont like the short sleeves. I wish they would make more shirts with the longer sleeves. I ordered and sent back Rafas Wimby crew because the sleeves were to short. Rafa and Feds line both are short in over all length and short sleeves. Hate that. Looks like they are wearing a size to small.

    Hear hear.... What's with the darn shorter than shorter short sleeves...

    TW needs to get their descriptions right for the past seasons.. these aren't average sleeve lengths.

    Nike, quit it... They look horrible on my arms.

    Niketown Vegas just put it out today (wasn't out yesterday - said they were waiting for a few pieces to arrive). Looks good in person too. Didn't have the Fed Olympic shirt or white or black Vapor 9's.

    Must say I'm not a fan. But I am a big fan of the deep royal plaid shirts for fall. Think I'll be picking those up.

    Yeah the US Open fall collection looks nice for Nike too. the Federer navy polo with white and red stripes is his night shirt I believe, and it looks great. The colorway for his night Vapors is looks sweet too, with the red sole.

    To those who don't like this new early fall apparel, I personally think it looks nice because of the streamlined looks, good color variation among the different shirts/polos, and the longer shorts of course.

    Nadal's US Open night session crew looks like a copy of Fed's French Open 2012 polo shirt minus the collar and front pocket. Same weird yellow spots on the shirt...
    Not impressed with nike recently, not quite sharing all the hype around this stuff.
    Although Fed's polo shirt looks quite decent.
