    I have never heard anyone ask this question and was just curious if anyone knew.

    Yes! Fred Perry.

    FP stuff was pretty big in the '70's and '80's here in the states, but not so much now. I consider it kinda retro, but it must still be happenin' in Europe (or at least Great Britain). Don't see any other pros wearing it.

    Now it just reminds me of that movie "The Royal Tenebaums" (sp)

    Are you serious? Go to any high-end department store and you'll see Fred Perry stuff. It's pricey, just like Lacoste.

    I saw his shoes are Nike though. And I've also seen him in Adidas recently. Doesn't he have a shoe contract?

    I thought he signed a deal with K-Swiss at the end of last year. Does anyone recall that?

    No shoe contract for Murray so he can wear whatever shoe he wants.

    That was reported but he said he's staying with FP for their centennial year.

    He is indeed wearing Fred Perry. Some of the other british female players are also wearing Fred Perry but as far as i know Murray is the main male pro who wears it. Fred Perry is still popular here in the UK and its expensive !!! Its very much like an english version of Lacoste :p

    In the early 80s when Fila, Ellesse Tacchini etc all appeared in Britain, Fred Perry was very affordable and considered lesser in style and quality. Skinheads were famous for wearing it. Now it seems to have undergone some retro renaissance and its back in style.

    Fred Perry was the last englishman to won Wimbledon is the 40's i guess, and after retirement he created this brand that now wears Murray.

    And he wears pretty much any shoe he wants, since he's not under contract for shoes. most likely you'll catch him in Barricades, although he's been seen with Vapors a few times.
