    The outfits the non-Federer Nike sponsored guys are wearing at the Open are utterly heinous.

    Tomic's outfit is three items - shorts, shirt, shoes - none of which remotely match. Don't they bother to look in a mirror before they go out on court?

    Did you - or anybody else - buy Spring "Fed" anthracite short ?
    Is it the same anthracite shade as usual? (Masters 2010, USO 2011, FO 2012)
    Thanks.

    The black socks for Rog during the Davy match are really throwing me off.

    Did/Will anyone buy the RF platinum short ?
    (which he will use for Indian Wells, I guess)

    [​IMG]

    I'm curious to know what shade of grey it really is : very close close to white, or darker.
    Any pictures would be welcome if/when someone has it.
    Thanks

    Are these the shorter shorts that Rafa is supposed to wear this season? Or are they only for practice?

    Sarcastic? Honestly thought Fed would not wear the blue until after Aus Open but clearly I was wrong.

    Does anyone know if the wristbands Fed was wearing at the AO Night sessions will become available? In the Wristband thread where TWE were a asked about them, they answered first "yes" than "no", so I am rather confused.

    Thanks.

    No we can't : for now the AO13 retail one is not available (not sure it will be, by the way).
    But as anthracite was the maiin color from his AO13 outfit (shoes, short, headband) it's obvious the wristband was anthracite too. Same color as USO11 then ;)

    Back to what? Haven't played for months! These prices are scaring me away from tennis...

    Guess Nike is using Fed as cash cow until he retires...:?

    As long as people are willing to pay for it, I foresee $120 polyester polo before Fed retires...

    Has anyone here bought any of the Royal blue/squadron blue apparel? I'm curious as to how they compare and how, in particular, the royal blue looks (as on TW it almost looks purple.

    I'm also hoping I can get a pair of those pure platinum shorts from TWE. They look absolutely stunning.

    I bought the platinum short. The shade is kind of icy light-blue.
    Here is a picture compared to a white short and a grey crew, for you have an idea of the color.

    [​IMG]

    The length is back as it was in 2011 (2012 were a half-inch longer)
    The waist is larger than the previous year... I usually wear M but I had to go down to S so it fits good on the waist.

    Thanks raph they look great. Interesting that the waist is larger. I haven't bought a pair of shorts in awhile aside from Rafa's WTF shorts from last year which I bought in M. Do you think an S might be better?

    Also not sure if anyone noticed this....
    [​IMG]

    Look really similar to me, and I believe nike never released these back in 2009.

    Don't knwo which one you should buy...
    The Nadal's shorts I have (2011) sized a bit larger than Fed's one.
    I bought S for Nadal and M for Fed.

    About the 2013 fed's shorts, yes the waist is a bit larger (I felt like I needed a belt with). S fits me better.
    I would just advise you to buy 2 different sizes, try them, and send the "wrong" one back ;)

    This is weird but I think that they may do this every so often becuase they want to focus more on clothes or shoes. This year they had the air max cages and teams so they might have focused more on that. Just a guess

    Hi! Someone asked about royal blue appareal. I have the royal blue polo and I think it's a beautiful shade of blue. It looks great with platinum shorts. I made a pic with other polos so you can see the shade of blue compared with clay 2012 polo, us open 2012 polo, winter 2011 polo and master 2012 polo. I added also a pic of the behind, cause it's all mesh!
    I hope pics will help people interested in buying it: it's beautiful in my opinion, so are the platinum shorts (kinda of ice white more than grey)

    RF81 that outfit looks amazing. I may just have to get that outfit now. on TW's website the outfit looked almost purple in color, but you can really tell it's blue in that photo which I am pleased to see.

    How does the length pf the shorts compare to the Spring/Summer 2012 shorts and the 2012 Fall/Winter ones? I have a pair of all 4 seasons and felt the Fall/Holiday are longer than the Spring/Summer ones even though they say it's the same length.

    I have the anthracite and platinum 2013 shorts, so I can answer that:
    It's basicaly shorter that all 2012 shorts, and the same length than 2011 shorts.
    But be carefull : the waist is larger than any other shorts... I had to change from M to S for it fits me better.
    I can just advise you to buy 2 sizes and try what fit you the best ;)

    I'm glad to have helped about the colour: yes it's definitely a great blue shade, not purple.

    About shorts lenght, my friend Raph said everything. I usually bought M ones but I've got an S for these. They fits perfectly and they are definitely shorter than last year fall ones.

    About the zip, I think it's nice, no problem with it

    Great! Thanks! I would love to get ones with the Zipper but can't get them here in the states. Maybe when I go to IW they might have them since Last year I got the Miami ones with the Zipper in the tent they had in the grounds during the tournament.

    Since this outfit (royal blue polo + platinum shorts) will be most probably Indian Wells outfit, you think that Nike will release some Premium Wristbands in royal blue to sell event only? If that will happen there is someone here that good to buy them and send to Italy?
    thank you in advance!

    More probably orange wristbands/bandana, to match the orange details from the polo, and the orange Vapor9 ;)

    edit:
    Just found Nike "previews" from the Indian Wells outfit with orange wristband.
    Not that these previews are always correct - some details often change from it to the real thing - but it could be that way.
