    yeah i remember watching one of nike last year videos the designer said they start the process of making the clothes for rafa and roger 18 months before the event

    so lets say that by the time of last years wimbledon they already knew what they are going to wear at this years us open

    Just got my two Federer crews (black/red and white abyss) and also the polo's (abyss and red). They are spectacular in person!! The material is just amazing. Better than any other year. In my opinion Spring 2012 is one of the best.

    Yes I will post pictures soon. Well I loved all of them, I will say the red polo is amazing (Im a fan of red) it is very similar in color to his 2010 World Tour Finals, so for that reason its not my favorite. The Abyss polo has a very sharp color, again quite similar to French Open 2010, however just a much sharper color.

    The crews are my favorite. The white crew with the Abyss is much better in person than photos. The Black and Red is just money, so either one of those I would say are my favorite and you can't go wrong with either. Like I said before also, the material is just awesome. Much softer than any of the other years.

    Probably.

    Also, maybe you'd know the answer to this. But you know the current 'Fed Jacket' he's sporting, there's something about the actual styling that really makes me want to buy one. However, I'm not digging the colour.

    Is this the 'style' of Federer's jackets for 2012? Whats the chances there's another offering of this jacket but in a more forgiving colour - black, navy...?

    Just look on TW Europe. The Green Abyss colorway will most likely be released Feb 1st in the US.

    I keep forgetting to post pictures of the 4 spring shirts I got.

    I saw on another site that Federer will wear the white/abyss crew in Miami, that seems about right. But now he still has 3 polo's to wear between that time and that seems to much. He would have to change outfit every tournament, I think Nike are just taking advantage of us if that is the case. I mean i got 4 shirts, and still don't have the entire season??:-?

    Just got the white polo in today. Excellent quality from nike, of course. really digging the colors, it goes well with the khaki shorts from fall 2010, as well as the new cargo khaki color.

    It's an extremely light weight shirt, not too slim fit. I'm getting the blue one with my Tacchini shipment. Looking forward to matching it (or not) with the summer 2009 shorts I have.

    Just got mine too. Agree that the quality is still great and very light weight too. But just like the other two that I currently owned so no surprise. The fact that I bought it for ~ $32 helps too ;)

    Sorry for my terrible photography skills, which in contrast doesnt help...In fact this is my first time not-lazy-enough to upload pics here:

    [​IMG]

    Next to my other 2, size S also:

    [​IMG]

    As you may or may not see, the Red AO has the normal fit where as the Anthracite USO 11 is the slimmest. Biggest is obviously the stripy RG polo. When I tried them on, the difference is quite noticeable (I'm quite small at 5'6",132lbs so kinda the "XS group") Though you might wanna take in into account that the stripy polo has been washed twice already...

    EDIT:
    While frunk said that it's extremely lightweight, I'm not that surprise. It's most likely because that although I have very few shirts, I only buy the Fed polos so I'm quited used to them. Nevertheless I decided to weigh them in and here are the results:

    RG11: 180gr
    USO11: 190gr (probably due to the backstripe?)
    AO12: 180gr

    I know right? Whereas living in Vietnam is quite a barrier for me to get the good stuff at an okey price (for example, retail V8 = $150 or a Burberry shirt could costs nearly twice its MSRP in the States). But on the other hand, I got access to things that are stolen out of the factories at a darn low price! I suspect that my recent purchases belong to that category as well whereas the seller said that they are from Singapore??? However the most important thing is that when I receive the polos, it's not difficult to tell that they are legits (I took a look at the one in stores as well).

    Still, even as a citizen in this country, I don't have much idea about so many "classes" of clothing out there. Apart from the ones that I got which I think are authentic, there are tons of fakes out there.

    Having said that; if anyone want to hook up with me, you should consider that while I do buy stuff in the US and ship them back quite often, I've never sold anything internationally so...:p But still; if you would like to take the risk, you could email me @ fg_trung40@yahoo.com.vn and I'll try to figure things out :)

    Call me insane but I weighed the 2011 AO and 2012 AO polos...10 gram difference! AO 2011 (Varsity Maize/White) weighed in at 206 grams, while the AO 2012 (White/Cargo Khaki) weighed in at 195 grams.

    Forgot that I weighed with the tags yesterday so redo today and the results are:

    RG11: 180gr
    USO11:190gr
    AO12: 17
    But again mine are all size S. What are your sizes frunk? And it might be understandable that the AO11 shirt is heavier because it has those trim things :confused:

    Well as far as I'm concerned my Nikes folllow the same fitting system too. They are not a company that makes specific Asian-size clothing like for example Levis based on what I know. I think the difference in fit to be objective is not that significant either (have a look for yourself in my last pic), but to someone who's so small like me, I'd be kinda overly sensitive :)

    yep...
    dont mean to offend anyone but asian people generally have a smaller gut/waist line / and shorter than westerners...

    all clothing companies know this... including nike...

    friend purchased S nike sportswear tshirt for me in USA...
