    Sweet just got Fed's Orange Polo from IW, Rafa Purple and Teal crews. Used the TW 25 percent liquidation for all 3 items. Would have been like 180+ bucks for all three, got em for 135. :)

    Thanks TW!

    Is Nadal wearing a Gym Red bandana?
    It seems to have a lighter shade of red

    Is Nadal wearing the Summer Crew Rafa in fiberglass at Monte Carlo? It looks almost white on TV, but more wintergreen in the picture on TW. Don't see other color options anywhere though.

    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Nike_Mens_Summer_1_Premier_Rafa_Crew/descpageMANIKE-NMS1RAC.html

    Where on the color palette does fiberglass fall anyway?

    Smart looking outfit on Nadal though. Simple and subdued clothing with a little more flair in the shoes/accessories. Like the approach.

    It's like a very pale mint. You can certainly see the difference with white when laid next to a white shirt.

    From the summer catalog, there are only 2 shorts:
    This blue one, and a white one which should be release June 1st.
    I guess the white one is for Wimbledon only.
    So yes, he should wear the blue one for Masters + RG.

    saw fed's FO shirt yesterday. Like the light purple colour but the RF logo in the tournalime green looks a bit out of place.

    Its not a decision of TW its a decision of Nike directly (don't know if it has something with the customers who prefer this version better), the only place where they don't sell RF original version its USA, other places Europe, Latin America have them.

    Yeah I know it's more of a USA market thing, just specified TW since this is their forum. Maybe get them to answer my question directly. It's sucks that we get these take down version.

    Great looking polo btw! Looks like a great polo to wear in the court and off!

    aenri86,

    Those shorts aren't available for us to sell. If we could carry them, we would.

    For example, Federer's shorts are on TWE. TWE also has the "original" Nadal shorts, with the red dots and not the grey ones. So it has to be with Nike's decisions, not TW not wanting to carry them: they do want! They also have the orange and grey Vapor and CB, which are clay-only outsole, but that's more because Americans don't play on clay as much.

    Although it's not written in stone. For example, the first Air Max Cages and Propulse 4 appeared first on TWE, then on TW. I'm not sure for the Cages, but I'm absolutely affirmative for the Propulse. Then, Babolat is a French brand, despite the Propulses being Roddick's signature shoe line. Still waiting for the new Cages colourways, or simply clay Cages since I mostly play on it.

    The clay shoes make sense, but the shorts thing is just idiotic. It's just Nike being ***** and sticking it to us Americans...

    Clearly in the US we need stretchable waistbands since we are all obese.

    TWE desciption : Midnight Turq w/Total Crimson & Fiberglass
    TW desciption : Midnight Turq w/Total Crimson & Fiberglass

    TWE has a real product photo, with crimson dots, while TW has the 3D promo picture (with grey dots) which, most of the time, is not the final product.

    I'm sure there is not 2 different shorts.

    Got the Platinum/Total Crimson wristbands today, initially they looked almost white but if you look close enough the platinum is noticeable.

    Hey Saringas! First of all compliments for the beautiful Dimitrov's polo: where did you get it?

    Could you please tell us the code of the polo?

    Is it cotton made?

    Thank you

    Hey Saringas, where did you find this polo you have a photo of that Dimitrov was wearing at the Monte Carlo tournament? They're asking about it on another thread.

    Hate to say this since I always brought name brand tennis clothing and shoes - mostly Nike and Adidas.

    But since I purchased the Walmart warm-up jacket; I purchased some Walmart shorts and then some Walmart tennis shoes too. I played with my new Walmart stuff and people say what brand is that? I just say it a private brand and they are intrigued and want to know where they can get it! I just laugh!

    I think you're right - I have the Pure Platinums - seem a little less baggy (wouldn't call them tight) - and maybe an inch shorter. Gorgeous color.

    Yeah just got my platinum's in the mail yesterday great great color, unusual though why Nike made their sizes a lot bigger than what they usually are.

    Not sure if these have been mentioned yet, but saw them at Nike today...
    Sorry for the white-balance, but the cage is actually an reddish-orange, while the heel-counter is grey. Volt airbag.

    The orange is pretty much identical to this...

    Great find. He will wear matching shoes with a "Teal Tint" swoosh.

    Any pics of Rafa?

    ^^^^ @lukhas, thanks for the link. Some better images than I'd previously seen for Fed's next 3 outfits (although I got the RG shirt in early April... :) )

    I wonder if Fed can really wear that Wimby outfit. The shorts appear to be Platinum, not white.
