    Saw Jesse Levine wearing Wolf Grey/Blue Glow crew. Blue Glow is an excellent color, I will have to pick up the premiers at the Open if they have them.

    I wasn't talking about Federer's set up here: it was just to imagine if the blue crew would match an obsidian short.

    Thanks for the info, though :)
    Do you know if he'll wear the obsidian Vapor 9 for both day and night ? Or will he wear the white/blue version (same as Cinci) for day with white short ?

    Good to know !
    I made this color with the help of online shop pictures, but didn't see it in person yet ! So I don't know what the "real" color is...

    Ah, I see. :)

    Btw, I am most definitely going to buy the red and the grey RF shirt from the Fall collection - I can post pictures of those too if you want.

    Maybe posted somewhere else, but in this video, Federer wears parts of his hard court outfit. I think the blue doesn't look that bad.

    I thought the blue match shirt was suppose to be his day USO outfit.

    Hmm, you're right. Maybe he wore it just for fun, not for his match.

    Another question: Does anyone know how long a "Hard Court Pull On Short" compared to the RF short is?

    Thank you in advance.

    Actually, it's this practice tee :

    The Hardcourt Crew have a different v-neck :

    On your video, at 2:40, you can see the neck is the Tee one.

    Arrive at least 2 days later than I expected as the seller used the cheapest/slowest shipping method.

    With the V9, dont let the pic fool you. They are basically the same color.

    ^Tks Bab.



    It's cool now since I have them in my hand here haha, thank you for the nice words. It would have been much better if I were able to get the "real" RF shorts like you did, my old ones have worn out so bad. Such a shame that Nike does not distribute them widely anymore :(

    Oh and btw have you rock the set on court and blow people away yet? I just tried them with white shorts + socks and they look great.

    Do you live in the US? Is it helpful for you if I buy a pair here and send it to you or is that a problem with customs or sth. like that?

    I didn't wear the outfit yet, but I am definitely looking forward to it - this will be a great moment. :D Thanks for the tip with the socks.

    Thank you so much for the nice offer. I'm still in my home country Vietnam where we basically get a portion of what Americans get but I will move to California soon for college. Would you mind if I contact you later if I need some help then :)

    Well that is for me with the white shorts, for you I dont know haha. So you're waiting for Roger to wear them first :p

    You can contact me anytime if you need something from the European TW - I am happy to help you if I can.

    Actually, I am waiting for my hair growing a bit longer again so I can wear the bandanas too. Crazy, I know. :D

    Chardy is wearing the obsidian vapors!! However, Chris Fowler and Brad Gilbert did not like the white sock/obsidian shoe combo.

    Thank you very much in advance :)

    That's what I call a complete (Federer-esque) package :D Opposite for me though, I always try to keep my hair short instead of wearing bandana. But that's maybe just because I dont have one that match yet. Things may change later when I get my hands on more of them :)

    You are very welcome.

    Funny story: I had longer hair for a long time in order to wear bandanas, kind of a similar hairstyle to Fed and then I cut them short. First day after the "shortcut", some guy who was in the same course with me at university walks up to me and says "Did anyone ever tell you that you look like Roger Federer?" That was kind of a strange moment. :D

    Back to topic: Besides the obsidian bandanas for my USO outfit, I only have black and white ones. My training outfits (so far) are grey/white, red/obisidan or obsidian/obsidian and white or black matches with each of them I guess. So white and black ones are a good start in my opinion.

    Wow that was an unusual situation indeed, should have been the reverse :)

    For me, I once had this crazy idea to grow my hair longer and then curl them like Roger did so that I dont have to much work for Halloweens. But I was too afraid that will just help to embarrass myself, especially with my nonathletic frame and low level of play=P


    Thank you for the suggestion. Right now I only have the RG'10 blue which basically doesnt match anything else haha. And while I also think that while/black would be the way to go since they're easy going, I have also already planned to buy matchy bandanas when I get to the states as they're quite hard to resist for me. Should have planned my luggage first :D

    Funny, I also thought about curling my hair once that way, but I guess one has to have such hair, otherwise it will be difficult to reach that kind of hairstyle - but it looks not that bad without curling I think/guess/hope. :D


    I also can hardly resist to buy bandanas and wristbands of every kind since I love matching outfits - I am looking forward to the Winter collection and Rogers purple outfit bandanas and wristbands. I guess those will become part of my collection. ;)

    Not going to lie, like two years ago, I really wanted a different hair style, so i asked myself, why not Roger's? Easily the best decision I ever made. The ladies especially love it;););)

    Night outfit with white socks? hmmm Everytime Nike tries to do this Fed always ends up changing them, let's see what happens this time around...

    [​IMG]

    It appears, not clearly though that he will use the White/Grey/Obsidian/Light Blue V9 he is currently using in Cincy for his day outfit on the US Open...

    How exactly did you do that? Is your hair a bit curly in general or did you do sth. to it? Mine is even (right use of this word here?), which makes it a bit more difficult. :D

    Maybe he plays a traning session with a white and a black one, like he did in Paris. ;)

    I thought everyone was thinking that he would use those during the day sessions? Was it mentioned somewhen that he used the obsidian ones for both?

    I'm wondering, in reference to the wristband, if Nike just messed up the photoshopping of the picture. As we all know, nike doesn't get Roger to pose for most of these shots, they just take old ones, and then change the colors on the clothing. This photo is the same one they used in the 2010 Us Open day clothing, and the swoosh on the wristband was obsidian. Not sure if Nike would overlook something like this, but it's possible.

    My hair is not really curly at all. a lot of it has to do with how your barber/hair dresser cuts your hair. My previous one was a massive fan of Roger, so she knew exactly what to do. I don't think roger's hair is even that curly, it's a lot wavier. I find that my hair gets more like that the more I grow it out.

    Yeah, I think that another problem is that I will look kinda silly with them :p

    I'm very curious to see how it will look like too, atm I prefer winter 2010 though.

    Very nice, congratz mate!


    / I think the only thing that we can be sure of right now is that Roger somehow is going to find a way to show off his kicks on facebook :) But first good luck for him in tmr's final!

    Yeah, probably will do that and ask fans through FB. White or Obsidian. And in the end he will choose the one him and his camp tells him looks better lol

    Good to know. Such a barber is certainly an advantage. :D Also my opinion: Very nice, and congratulation to that hairstyle. ;)

    It's such a pity that the outfits from last winter are not available anymore. The one Roger wore to the WTF was so stunning and it had the same colors as the trophy and the whole artwork of the tournament - it was perfect.

    I must also say (to include at least sth. on the topic ;)) that the outfit he currently wears in Cincy looks very good to me. It is rather simple and the blue and red applications on his sleeves are unseen (at least for me) for most of the time, but it looks classy in a very good way.

    And by the way I have decided to pull the trigger on the uni blue crew, hope to get it soon :D

    Nice. Please post pics of it as soon as you got it. I also thought about buying it, but I know me well enough to be aware of the fact that once I had the blue crew, I would also buy the shorts, the shorts would lead up to the jacket and the jacket to the shoes and so on and so forth. :D And in order to save some money for the Winter collection, it is better for me to not buy the blue crew. ;) But I am definitely looking forward to your pictures.

    Thanks, I thought I could make one up with the Cincy outfit, since it looks really good an Roger. Love yours to, it's very funny. :)

    The Code for the obsidian is 451, if we mean the same code. ;) For the red, I am not sure, but if you search the color code thread for "University Red", you may find something.

    Edit: Did it myself, according to the thread, it is:

    I understand this so well haha. Right now I'm eyeing the lighter shade jacket, the obsidian practice tee and shorts already. And that should keep me broke for a while :p

    It's all good as long as there's Roger! And did you see that bagel few hours ago ;)

    I got the obisidan night set (except the socks unfortunately) and just ordered the obsidian and the white/grey pull-on shorts along with the obsidian, the red and the grey tee for practice sessions (since the USO outfit will be used only for special occasions) ;).

    Looking forward to see pics of your new stuff if you want to post some.

    Yeah, I noticed the bagel - seems to fit perfectly there. :D

    Yeah that's what I planned too. Same goes to the USO'11 night outfit, if I will complete them both. They're too gorgeous to wear on any normal practice day and might even get you some unwelcoming eyes :p

    Sure I will post them whenever I can, just need to remind the guy to use some shipping methods that are acceptably fast for domestic :twisted:

    Oh, and for the socks I would be more than willing to help you get them if I can. Can you just drop me your email here since it seems that I cant email you thru your profile :D

    Yup he meant that, tags inside wristbands would possibly be even more annoying that the one behind your neck :mad:
