    If you could have one shirt from the past re-released for consumer purchase, what would it be?

    Please include picture if possible.

    Oh i'm torn here, I had have somewhere) the sampras range from 94/945 I think Queens club, shirt had brown cheques on the collar and sleeve with matching shorts.Or i'td have to be the hot lava agassi shirt, (either the mainly white or black one i'd be easy)purely because i was about 9 when it came out and there was no way i was asking my parents for a shirt that cost that much, course now they go for even more!

    Already done,

    Fila Borg
    Fila Vilas
    adidas Lendl argyle (Okay, the new one is a bit different, but close enough.)

    Were they not already done, I would have chosen the Fila Borg.

    Ditto on that Fed shirt Jolly posted, i actually was gonna get it had borrowed a credit card all ready to order from TW and it tells me because of some Nike restrictions they don't ship outside the US. :cry:

    [​IMG]

    Wouldn't mind this top as well the one with the swirls on the back from 2001 not in the red though, can't find a pic but it comes in dark blue with electric blue swirls on it (describing the colours from memory). Anybody got a pic of it so i can see it and live in envy of wanting to own that top.

    the all red Tacchini shirt Rocsoe Tanner wore back in the late seventies. I had two made of Egyptian Pima cotton, best looking and made I ever owned. !

    I'd quite like adidas to bring some Edberg stuff out with more 21st century colouring, like they've done with that Murray shirt that's borrowed the old school Lendl argyle stuff.

    Sounds like there's a few late-80s or thereabouts tennis fans around here!

    This one's simple, but I liked it and had it as a kid...


    [​IMG]

    Mentioned above, I agree, here's the pic:

    [​IMG]

    Again, with the mentioned / agreed / pic:

    [​IMG]

    And hey, you said nothing about gender. I'd like this to be brought back! I was at the AO this year (02), and have some fairly amazing pics somewhere of some of an early round match with these two, with kournikova looking simply resplendent!

    Wow, that is a surprise to me. I know he wore Mizuno at the end of his career, but to be in Nike now is almost sacrilege. Kinda like Andre now wearing adidas.

    BTW, what is Bjorn wearing there? I can't make out the logo.

    I'd love to see Lendl playing in the new adidas argyle shirt. And Bjorn in some kind of Fila retro pinstripe....made of poly as cotton is obsolete for competitive tennis.

    And while we are at it, Donnay should resign Bjorn and have him use one of those new racquets.

    That's enough to make me cry.

    Also, had you have bought a second set and stuck it in a closet, it'd return you a better-than-blue chip return on your 20 quid on **** after those 20 years :)

    That's not vintage Sergio Tacchini. These are. 8)

    Two of the GOAT shirts in the same match.. 1989 US Open..

    The 'spray paint' and the 'chalk duster'
    [​IMG]

    OK.. I'll give it to you. The Sampras archer shirt is beyond awesome. I'd love to get my hands on one of them for my collection.

    I had a couple ! >>

    Egyptian Pima Cotton hard to describe how well made these were ! to nice for tennis I wore them when I was thru playing, took a licking in a hot washer and dryer and looked the same. that special cotton. the all red was awesome and had different collar. I got two as gifts and WOW did I ever get compliments when I wore them.

    I know, in the early 90s i had a pair of green agassi shorts with bllue/purple lycra, and a matching shirt it was the white bottom with a top 3rd, diagonal colour block much shorter in the front than the back type of shirt.I had the green and red shirts, didnt wear them for years, forgot they were there, one day drove my dads van and the red one had become a seat cover!Now of course another 8 years on they sell for over £50 on the bay....hindsight would be a good thing in advance!
    Oh i got this shirt and top set lendl has on here
    http://www.google.co.uk/images?rlz=...tle&resnum=1&ved=0CCkQsAQwAA&biw=1345&bih=490
    Assuming the pic works its the one with the ribbon effect across the chest, same shop same prices.....oh to be able to go back in time!

    in that picture bjorn is wearing his own brand 'bjorn borg.'

    this picture was taken when they had the exhibition match on Nov 6, 2010.
    where lendl defeated borg 6-4, 7-6

    next year, he will take on John McEnroe :)

    as for racquet, lendl now uses a bosworth

    Lendl lost to Mac on the champs tour a month or two ago.

    That said, great that he's in Borg-beating form, looks like he's lost even more weight, great to see....

    his next match against mcenroe will be a doubles match.
    http://tennis-in-depth.com/2010/11/18/ljubicic-will-partner-lendl-at-aussie-world-team-challenge/

    Ivan Lendl will play with Ivan Ljubicic
    and John McEnroe will play with James Blake

    I think currently McEnroe is better than Lendl but Ljubicic is better than Blake, so it's going be an exciting doubles match :)

    Fed's from Wimbledon 06, it was really basic looking crew with nice details and lots of tech. It had this advance Nike Sphere technology with flaps on the back that would open up and vent when you were hot (probably BS, but interesting none the less).

    I have this shirt, probably one of my favorite crews. The sphere react on the back really opens up when you sweat, but I don't think it does any better of a job than a good open mesh fabric would have done.

    I don't know if anyone remembers this, but it was a shirt that Nike made that featured a denim collar with some nice yellow lining.

    I would love to get my hands and (neck) into one.

    Fila does have retro/vintage shirts that they still sell. Yet Borg's classic Fila shirt at Wimbledon would be it for me. The red Fila warm up top is great too.
