    They would have to reissue the whole line, otherwise what are you going to wear them with. Ten years ago they reissued some McEnroe stuff, maybe they will do it with Agassi stuff, it would make sense.

    They do seem really 80's, but not cool retro 80's.

    There's good 80's and bad 80's. I just think these were bad 80's.

    McEnroe Tacchini, Lendl/Edberg Adidas, McEnroe Nike checks, Pat Cash Tacchini.....all good.

    Agassi denim shorts....not so good. Usually seen worn with day-glo socks and dooley-boppers (alien antenna head gear). If you see it....take a wide swerve my friend.

    Totally agree - here's to hoping Nike keeps those horrible things in the memory vault only.

    Those denim shorts shouldn't see the light of day.

    I'd personally like the McEnroe Checkerboard line being re-released again. However, the cut of the shorts have to be the current style (longer and looser). I don't have the body I did 20 years ago... LOL

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Agassi colors being re-released as well. However, the cuts definitely have to be the current styles as well.

    I hope there will be some type of retro Agassi clothing in the Fall 13 line.

    Take old acid washed jeans. Cut off the legs. Apply Nike logo. Profit.

    These look best if worn with long pink compression shorts underneath and a mullet on top of your head.

    I'm not sure the words 'look best' should really be used in this thread at all :)

    I would amend this to read..."These will never look good, but to acheive the full-on horredous effect, wear pink compression shorts and get an awful haircut.......shortly to be followed by being dis-owned by all family and friends".

    The McEnroe Tacchini shirts and Fila Borg shirts, together with corresponding track tops ( I myself wear a Tacchini Dallas to and from matches) are acceptable, but please bear in mind that the items re-released are issued for a reason, the same applies to those that have never seen the light of day since.:)

    That was our uniform on my high school team for 91-92 except we had to wear our team shirts that didn't match very well. Being a huge Agassi fan at the time I still thought I looked great in it. Pink spandex and all. :)

    Shorts do seem to be getting a bit shorter again. Federer's shorts were cut about 2 inches shorter at the end of this season than they have for the past few years.

    I actually wore those denim shorts back when Agassi sported them.

    Their biggest problem, if you could get past the looks, is durability.

    Denims simply do not last.

    Those denim shorts single-handedly ruined the tennis apparel industry. Once those came out, guys thought they could just wear whatever they wanted to for playing tennis - and so they did. I blame Nike for all of it.

    I think Nike is currently doing a good thing with "Agassi" era inspired design on their items now. With the "flame" V9, B4.3 and B2k12 it's just a hint of the flame rather than the entire shoe.

    Maybe along the same line, Nike will release a denim looking shorts that are made of modern dri fit material for better comfort and performance. Something along the lines of jean leggings for women.

    Sinclair looks like he has some real tennis skills! The other guy, not so much.

    Oh, yeah. Few things look as good as FAKE denim. Ugh.

    Admit it, you'd be intimidating... or at least think your opponent is a nut

    I agree on both of these...I'd even enjoy the Nike denim shorts (they were great), but they'd need to be more the length of shorts we wear now. The McEnroe stuff was always great!!!
