    I don't understand, tw says the content of all the fed shirts are the same, but each year the feel different.

    You mean "Black is deeper than the blue one" ? or "blue is deeper than the black one" ?
    Judging on these photos, I guess the black is less deep, and it's bad cause I liked the feel of the blue deep v-neck (I have the Miami grey version, which is great)

    I also have the miami peach color one. It is the same content and feel as the blue crew. Yeah, my black crew is deeper than the blue one.

    perhaps roger's are different. I do not know. I am just going by what I have.

    polo = mature

    crew = young

    I didn't buy the blue polo, because I have the french open polo that he wore in 2010 and the look pretty close in color. So that's good for me.

    plus I want the Darth Federer look :twisted:

    Could you post a pic of the black one then ?
    I'd like to see sleeves length and neck deepness.
    Thank you very much :)

    sorry man, I tried. I took a picture of it with my phone, but could not save it to my computer.

    Anyway on the inside of the shirts were you can see the nike info, and what size it is. The black one revels much more. you can see the words nike dri fit, and even where it is made, while on the blue one yoou can just see the nike sing.

    when you say the blue one you talking about last year one right? also what does it mean that the collar is deeper and would you regret that you got the black one over the white-blue one?

    When is it likely that the Nike Spring range prices will drop?

    The Black one is meaner and more badass.Its also something that you can wear to a casual dinner out. The white with the blue is more fun and more summer type of shirt to be worn during the day. They both really cool, like I said, can't go wrong either way.

    I think there were pics posted somewhere before, its just going to be while with a bit of black accents on shoulders and what not... shoes are probably going to be more or less like the 4.3's already on sale

    Not getting the blue polo was absurd. Probably the best piece nike has done in recent time.

    yes the abyss colored on. It's 'blue' nonetheless. I love it for the exact same reason i loved the 2010 and 2009 FO gear.

    The US price of $125 plus tax is a joke. It's full price in England is $98 inc tax, so nearly $40 (c.30%) less.

    Fit is usual for Nike, quite wide with long sleeves. Material is very soft on the insets, main jacket shell feels rougher but still nice. It's not like your regular track jacket but I like that. However, I wouldn't recommend it until it falls below $100 (see if TW offers a decent price drop this time) as in 6 months they'll be easily available in all sizes for about $60 from certain major retailers.

    By the way, they are using the exact same jacket style (but different colors) for the French Open 2012 (black/volt) and Wimby (white/green/purp).

    I did not, but I indeed did speak incorrectly and meant to say black and yellow (or dark grey and fluorescent yellow). It was my bad using Nike's terms, I'll stick to the actual color palette from now on. :)

    vneck really isn't worth the money. If you want a sick jacket, go for the Djokovic stuff. FAR higher quality than the Nike gear.

    Fed jacket is actually pretty crap, his jackets from last year were a lot better. Material is not nice, its more of a proper jacket than just a track jacket to me.

    I really like the feel of the new jacket.
    Its definately different - yes - feels more like a softshell jacket and is very light and thin,yet keeps you cool/warm. Im digging it.
    The only downside is the price, but I buy all my Nike stuff with a discount so its not that bad for me.

    Agreed, it's totally different different to last year's but that does not make it inferior at all. I also do not think the ST Djoko line is of higher quality I'd more say they are about equal, certainly the fit of these jackets is a little better as the ST's are long in the sleeves but too short in the body. However, in the US Nike's msrp RF prices are indefensible.

    Discount is the only way to roll no doubt.

    I think they are real and it makes sense that Nadal will be wearing them as his wristbands are green and this shorts are black which both matches the shoe. Thus I believe he will be wearing the blue tour shirt.
