    Nike should give the winner of wimbeldon a jacket every year and let them wear it the next year to wimbeldon. Might be a little tacky though.

    On tv, it kind of zoomed on his logo on left chest and it wasn't nike. I couldn't really make out what the logo was.

    It's a logo specifically designed for Federer to show that he has won three Wimbledon titles. The three racquets on top of that logo show that.

    It comes across as pompous and tacky. Sorry Fed, I'm a big fan, but the jacket looks ridiculous.

    It looks better than that hideous green jacket that golfers get to wear when they win whatever it is they win.

    I think it's classy. It really works for him because he's not a sweaty hog after matches like the other pigs out there.

    The badge on his breast pocket is some custom design with 3 racquets, representing 3 wimbledon titles, and FEDERER written underneath. The jacket is manufactured by Nike, when he was interviewed post match by the BBC, he said that Nike will have to make a new jacket with 4 racquets on the badge.

    I am surprised the the "Traditional" Wimbledon allowed him to wear it. It was not even white. I thought it was ok though.

    Nike allegedly makes the jacket which means it has contracted the job out to some sweatshop. Brands may design stuff but they don't actually make anything any more.

    A google search is a very easy way to find answers.

    From what I hear the design for the crest was created mostly by Federer and the jacket was his idea. Federer knows how to stay classy.

    Nike didn't make the jacket. From what they said on ESPN, Nike sent the design to Prada to be made.

    This IS in the tennis tradition. Check pics of Davis Cuppers in years past, around the Cup, and they are all wearing such blazers.

    Say 1973, when Laver & Newcombe (with Rosewall as a replacement), the greatest Ozzie team ever, destroyed US at home in the final: 5-0.

    Now, this might be a bit of aggrandizement these days, and I understand the reservations some people may have.

    federer always has been a student of the game...apreciating the history of the sport...and im sure he observed the history of wimbledon being that he has several titles...im sure he saw that many of the old players did so, and honestly that was a more classy period of time...i think the jacket is classy

    Jep, no complains about the jacket at all. The jacket symbolizes the elegance the majesty of Roger Federer. The classiest, greatest tennis player of our generation.

    Would it have worked had Nicolas Kiefer or Lleyton Hewitt worn them? The crowd (and the players in the locker room) would probably have laughed their ass off.

    I agree and thought Federer looked majestic in the jacket (but he also backed it up with his play). Well I think once you've won the slam three times you're allowed a jacket :) And next year, Nadal should get a burnt red leather jacket for Rolland Garros!

    I always remember watching old clips of tennis matches where they wore blazers just like that, although I dont remember if it was Wimbledon or not

    I remember Pete was once without sponsor - just wear a white shirt with American flag. I call that class!

    I think Fed gets too into being No.1 these days. i.e. the whole privileged membership thing. I am a Fed fan but usually players who are very commercialized or always talking about being No.1 / the best / winning no matter how talented they are never last long. Fed has another 3 years to match Pete's number 1 record, and another 3 to match his Wimbledon record. Hope he doesn't fall victim to all the media pressure/commercial pressure.
