And some Federer French Open polos.
J, nice collection as always. but the thing is, I just dont think the contrasting collar looks that good. not sure what Nike was thinking about.
Funny, I really like it, I have a bunch of shirts with contrasting collars. Tennis and otherwise.
The orange one with the white collar looks great in person.
Im tempted to try one on next time I go to a tennis shop. Usually Im not a big fan of collared shirts. I would love for Nike to bring back the zip-up half collar a la Federer's global power top in early 05 or what Adidas has every season. If I had a few of those I'd be holding up pedestrian traffic next to my court (even moreso than now hahaha)
Yeah I agree, the collars do look fantastic. I especially like the newer editions, like the one Federer is wearing in wimbledon where the collar is only partially a different look. Very nice collection by the way!
Gaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh~!!! Love the navy blues, J!
Ya, I like the way navy tops and white shorts look.
Even though I usually wear all black.
Side note: There has been like zero nice black stuff this year.
Hopefully the Fall stuff has some nice black tops.
Jolly, where can I get those polos? The obsidian and sky blue. I don't see them on the www.niketennis.com
Edit: Just realized that those were last year's polo's. I guess I'll go and get this year's.
J, yours are MORE bad-ass than my feathers III! :shock: :grin:
jolly i'd like to see a snapshot of your closet or whatever.. i'm sure it is a sight to behold.
my roommmate used to buy clothes like crazy...but never duplicates....he had literally about 40 different pairs of khakis though..mostly different shades....and just about every single color imaginable for polos. He was also a huge label hizzoe...only wear like R.L. Polo...and he had a liking for huge billboard labels like HOLLIST...or ABER....across his shirts Ah...he had a couple hundred caps...mostly baseball like new era fitted hats.
when you're in practice,do you take 2 or 3 of the same shirts? Or do you mix it up?
You know where to find them:
you selling those inno?
Yeah, he is. On the 'bay.
My normal closet like with my regular clothes too, or just my tennis shirts?
Normally when I practice I wear all black. And I have either solid black, or black and white shorts (yea, like a billion pairs)
So for like a normal after work practice I will wear one short, and have 2 shirts that match it, either the same shirt or different, doesn't much matter.
For like a long weekend practice, or day at the park or tournament, I will bring a few shorts and a bunch of shirts.
I also bring a bunch of hats and socks, if it is really hot I'll bring a couple pair of shoes, but I really don't sweat much so I rarely need to change shoes or use wristbands. Just the backwards hat, or bandana to keep the sweat out of my eyes.
You know how some blacks are darker than others, so some shorts are closer in color to some shirts, and I try my best to match them up. (yea, I have a problem, I know, at work we have uniform service, and the older uniforms fade the more they get washed, and the new ones are darker, so I try to find a pair of pants, and a shirt that are evenly faded, so I am not wearing dark blue pants, and a faded blue shirt at work)
Sometimes I wear something nice to hang around and BS in and do my errands, then when I actually go out to practice, I will change into my normal black stuff.
Then when I get home I hang all the stuff on a drying rack so it doesn't go into the hamper soaking wet.
wow lol i only wear my tennis specific shirts for tournaments cuz i dont wanna waste them practicing
you seem pretty well-off, judging from your inventory of rackets and clothing. may i know what you do for a living and what your secret is?
Oh, I buy duplicates of normal clothes too if I really like them.
But moreso tennis stuff, because that is mostly what I wear.
I am all about buying stuff to wear it, not to have it sit in your closet and look pretty, so I have really good clothes and shoes, and I wear them.
And if they get stained, or messed up, then whatever.
So where with a tennis shirt, I'll buy a bunch of them, and wear them the same day, with a dress shirt, or something, if I really like it, I'll get 2 and that way if I wear one out and spill something on it, I'll have another.
I really don't buy normal clothes too much anymore, just to fill in certain things that I need for whatever season. I have pretty much everything you could imagine covered (I have been basically the same size for the past 8 years, and have more classy than trendy taste), so it is pointless to buy excess stuff when I already have it.
I am for sure a label who**, but I would never wear crap like A&F, or Hollister, it just isn't my style, nor do I find it tasteful. Any time that something like that would be worn I am either preppy, Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Brooks Brothers, or else something like Oakley if the preppy would be out of place.
I know, I am F'ing weird...What can I say?
No wife and kids, get rid of girlfriends when they start costing too much or interfering with tennis.
Does wonders for making an otherwise ordinary income go further.
The stuff just accumulates over the years as long as you stay the same size.
If you buy 1 shirt a month, after 5 years you have 60 shirts.
They don't wear out like sneakers.
You can still get them, many nike outlet stores have them, tell them you did a nike find, or ask an outlet to actually do a nike find and they'll ship them for free.
No problem Blask, I love the white/reds. I was so happy to see them again!
I'll have to go check them out, I want the Blue Fed polo...whats your user name inno?
Really? His name is right on the photos: tennis_innovashaun
^^^^^Thanks for sorting that out for me.
i really really dont like the way the 1.2s look. how do they fit??
Pretty good. I have an over abundance of shoes so I wanna get rid of some. They fit well. Very similar to the ones before them and similar to the last version of the Cage's.
Jo11y why do you have so many Fed polos? You should get some of the orange nike polos with the white collar. Those are nice. http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageMANIKE-NMSCAP.html
I had a lot of fun with this.
Someone blown aces thru your shoes? Bullet holes?
