    How often do you rotate hats? I only have three, so I rotate every other time I play. Seriously, that's a HUGE investment...

    you have not seen innoVAShaun's collection yet ^_^
    I bet he is the king. I also have good collection of hats (mostly featherlight).
    guess closed to 40 hats. I usually rotate every time. It's not a bad idea to have some hats so I don't need to wash the hats every week:)

    i just shaved my head so i won't be wearing hats for a while, but when my hair was long i would bring like two hats to school everyday. One simple hat, and then one athletic hat. Most of the Fila ones are unworn, but i wore like 14 different ones a week

    lol don't think it's wise for me to challenge you on this (I know I will lose:twisted:), I was actually admiring the bruce lee hat.

    Happy shopping and don't forget to show us what you bought.:)

    I just got clearance featherlight hats from TW.
    and new nadal hats.
    I thought about getting Mc featherlight but $26 is a little stiff so I will wait until prices goes down.
    [​IMG]

    maze yellow and mid w e s t gold yellow looks exactly same color. (I can't write the word midxxx).
    it's impossible to differentiate those two yellow color.
    I don't even know until I saw the tags.

    now I can see some differences. mid'west gold is slightly darker than maze but it's very hard to differentiate.

    Kimguroo,

    Do you think you can post a pic of your Dark Marina Blue FeatherLight hat with any other Marina Blue clothing, like the wristbands? Thanks in advance.

    I only buy items on sale ^___^
    I don't have any Marina blue Items since no one sell it for less than MSRP now.
    anyway, TW pictures are closed to actual color so you can compare those first. I will let you know if I can take some pics in near future. who knows I will get some good deals today :)

    The hats and wristbands were from the ADNA starter and spring pack. The longer black one was a little gift though

    I should not say "only" ^__^
    always..... there are some exceptions.
    I am not a fan of rafa but I like the bull logo (maybe because I was born year of OX haha)

    Looks almost green in the pic. I'd buy one if they release a dark green version.

    I found this wristband at local store.
    This was the first time that I paid a full price for wristbands ^_^
    thought it might be worth more than $10

    Nice find! I see you have a lot of tennis accessories and apparells, do you use them or collect?

    I try to use them but sometimes certain items became collectible or rare items then I keep them. if I have several items then sell it.

    mostly bandanas are good. as soon as they are discontinued price start to go up (usually keep it for a year or two then mostly price goes double).

    I am thinking of cleaning my closet because I have closely 40 tops and 30 bottoms (only wear about 10 apparels each. mostly apparels are still new with tag). some of apparels, I am not interested anymore so might not wear it. recently, I play 5 days a week so it's not bad to have many hats and apparels because I don't need to worry about washing ^_^

    Just curious . . . to you guys who wear hats. Do you wash them every time you play? Do they get nasty over time?

    It depends on. If I sweat a lot, I wash them after I use it once but if I play double with easy game or match, I use twice ^_^. I wore twice during the summer time and smells bad (because I wanted color match). I don't do it anymore. Usually dri fit feather light hat can dry within 30min so there is A possiblity that you can wear twice but dri fit fabric can't remove smell ^_^ that's why I have so many hats hahaha.

    Its true, I think the items that are popular and become collectibles over time (in Nike's case) are usually released during Federer/Nadal slam winning seasons, for example, Federer USO 08, FO 09 and AO 10. Nadal's French Open gear has always been popular even last year's despite he lost. I see Fed's blue polo from this year's AO are still changing hands at high prices on e bay, especially the smaller sizes. Wish I had stock up in advance.:)

    It's like a gamble. Actually, I can't predict which one will become rare item. Only time will tell ^_^
    I had several good bet and bad bet. Worst one was fed 15 hat( very hot item right after Wimbledon but now not many people look for this hat) and best was blue and white bandana.

    I guess it's because Federer seems to win slams so easily, in no time it's already 16 going 17:twisted:! If 15 was his last ever slam then it'd surely be more popular.:)

    I wash all my Feather Light hats everytime I play. They're just like any of my other clothes. If I sweat in them, they go right into the laundry.
