    If anybody lives in NYC and can get some of this stuff, I will pay you (profit for you of course).

    Doesn't float my boat style-wise -- plus Uniiqlo's reputation in their non-tennis clothing line is based on being stylish yet inexpensive, rather than high quality.

    I find it interesting in generel that Novak has his very own paths when it comes to clothing. I guess Nike, adidas, ... would take him without thinking and they would provide him with a signature line - but he chooses some other manufacturer nobody else has. Impressive!

    I like his stuff, but the problem is - it is not on sale online. Does anyone know where to get his stuff online?
    Will TW start selling Uniqlo stuff?

    I concur. But, I'll fall prey to buying the shirt/short combo when I check out the store before I head out to the day matches:oops:

    I was wondering the same thing - not going to buy just wondering what their strategy is - I'm an IT guy - doesn't take this long to set up a website. Or negotiate with TW or one of the other major sites. If they don't then they could end up failing as epically as ST.

    His USO stuff is off the charts fancy compared to this.

    To be honest, I like tennis clothes that are less than extravagant (which is why I usually buy Roger's clothes than Rafa's) so I like this. I'd like to see how the quality is before I buy though.

    It is not about tennis, per se. Sponsoring a high profile tennis player is just part of Uniqlo's international branding. They have been rolling out stores in numerous countries as part of their expansion over the past few years, including two or three in NYC with more USA stores to come soon. Sure, they will want to sell tennis gear at some point, but that is not the primary objective. By the way, the shopping experience in their Japan stores is pretty cool -- free alterations in an hour on anything you buy there.

    Anyone know the sizing for these? Price seems great especially for the polo and I might actually go down to the 5th avenue store

    Thanks for the info. Haven't been to Tokyo in a while - maybe next yr.

    But they could do both. Setting up stores and setting up websites are different things.

    PS - like the avatar; careful with that beverage. :)

    I don't like that Logo. I think they should change it to Gozilla, or Mothra or something similar. More standout and unique

    Looks really nice! And how is the fit? Oh and also are those warm-up jackets (the one with the cap) worth buying? :) I need something to wear during trainings in winter.

    ^karomanovic, I visited the store when I went to the US Open earlier this week. I bought the Warmup jacket which is 100% polyester and rain resistant. It's very good and i'd recommend it for the winter. I think the jacket you see there is the Track Jacket which is 15% spandex and 85% polyester with ribbed cuffs of another material. I have the blue shorts and polo as well as the warmup jacket and they def fit a little small. Small might be the wrong word to use because the style of these clothes seems to be slim fitting so to replicate a looser fit like nike/adidas you'll need to go up a size perhaps.

    I gotta say......I love the simple designs and I think Nole' looks fantastic in this stuff. I don't even mind the Uniqlo logo. I don't care for the splashy colorful neon stuff that some of the endorsement deals provide. I like the simple, basic, classic, vintage styled stuff and I think Novak's new duds sort of fits that bill.

    It's amazing how much different Novak looks now compared to earlier in his career. He was smaller, wore oversized stuff, and had a bigger head of hair. Now he looks like a conditioned athlete, streamlined, matured, seasoned. And the uniqlo stuff fits him in a way that accentuates his physique.

    I was all like wtf? when I heard he signed with Uniqlo, but I have to say... I'm impressed.

    None whatsoever. The material is fairly thin and will test it out today on the hot humid texas weather. I hope it doesn't smell like spoiled plastic like Adidas' polos and crews.

    My blue polo has venting at the armpits. The shirt vents quite well, the sweat absorption and release is much better than dryfit or climacool, the shirt is very lightweight, and it dries VERY fast compared to nike.
