    Airness, a french brand that sponsors Davydenko and Petrova, new to tennis although I had seen some of their soccer equipment before.

    I had no idea Fred Perry was such an awesome British tennis player! Now I'm gonna buy all their stuff, and even more Lacoste clothing!

    Fred perry has been around for like 50 years +. Not really a small company.

    You don't see many people wear their clothing because it is not readily available in the USA and it is expensive.

    You realize of course that is tantamount to loving the Cubbies AND the White Sox, right?;)

    Probably not the garage-ish startup you had in mind, but....I think diadora is amazing. Not expensive, topnotch threads, clean designs and a hipper look than anything the big manufacturers have been churning out of late.

    Not exactly just starting out either as Fred Perry has been around for at least 60 years.

    If you like retro then check out the new Boris Becker "Serveman" clothing line. Both a new start-up and a small company.

    i never wear it, but loads of chavs wear it here, it must be available not that expensive but i would imagine that the nicer stuff would be quite expensive. and loads of people wear it here.

    Chavs- that is not exactly a complimentary term is it? :D

    Yah I guess since it is UK based, it may not be that expensive where you are located. Nike is the same way over here. Hit the Nike outlet and some discount places and you can get their stuff pretty cheap, but probably not so in the UK.

    I'm liking the boris becker line, and it's the closest thing i've seen to well done, retro, simple tennis clothing. Plus i like my tennis shorts to have built in linings and his line does. Babolat has a few things I like but I really don't like how proud they are of their logos and the size of them.

    I'll check out diadora tho.
