Looks like another year I won't buy much clothing.
 
Man, it seemed like 05-10 was such a great five years for almost all brands, and 11, 12, and so far 13 have just been churning out hideous quasi 90's clothing and shoes.

Thankfully I stocked up on a lot of stuff that was simple, clean, and classy, or had cool patterns. The last few years stuff just seems garish.

i thought 05 and 10 was the best federer polos

I've changed my mind about the Grey polo, I think it's beautiful if you see it on live, the problem is the price tag. $90!? Come on.

Really? I thought 2010 was pretty lackluster for Fed. The "F" polo's with the tuxedo style collar edging were quite gaudy IMO. On the other hand 2009 was GOAT.

2009 was fantastic... all the polos were at least pretty.

2009 > 2007 > 2012 > 2011 (come one, that RG '11 was the beautiful shirt that Nike has ever made) > 2005 > 2006 > 2010.

I like fed's pink and grey aus polo, I already pre ordered it, but I will not be buying much more special tennis outfits as nike's inflation is a monster. fed shirts go up in price ever year.

we just have to wait for RF to retire.....prices will go back down again...haha....hopefully designs will be much nicer rather than selling on the player "brand"

I agree 09 was great, you left 08 out of your chart though.

It really annoys me how they charge $90 for a polo that cost less than $3 to make. Just shows how much they pay these sponsored pros.

I personally only buy clearance clothing and usually try to pick my stuff up at stores like Ross, TJ Max, and Marshalls. At least there I can keep the cost ~$20 and only pay ~600% markup.

Isn't that strange? The material feels so much better and it fits me so much better than all my other polo's. Could just be Nike's inconsistency when it comes to quality? I did like the clay court crew's and the Hard court V-necks from 2011 but definitely the RG polo is the stand out item in my collection. I still haven't worn it yet.

J011yroger 01-10-2013 09:43 AM

I wasn't big on the looks of the 2011 French polo, but the quality was exemplary. Also the 2011 blue RF v-neck is possibly the best made shirt I own (tennis shirt that is lol).

I bought 2 of them and 2 of the red v's :)

It would be nice to see them step up the quality for this year's stuff but not sure that will happen. I bought a couple of last years polo's - the AO red and IW green and I thought the quality was really bad, didn't like the tapped shoulder seams either.

'08 comes right after '07. That blue chili polo worths the whole season, but he had so many good shirts. The Night Session of AO, Wimbledon, Roland Garros, and the Brown shirt for USO.

From 2011 I have the clay season crew (in XL, I only wear crews a size above), Paris/Basel and WTF shirts. I love the fit/quality of all of them.

JGads 01-10-2013 01:02 PM

The RF Henley. Now that was a cool shirt. Wish they could bring that style back.

Adidas did last year in the AdiZero line, for spring.

Totally agree, 2009 polos were the GOAT.

All this modern clothing is a bit tacky for me. I just wear solid colors with no logos. I also prefer cotton these days to plastic clothing. The only thing I am have become a little picky about is shoes. I get irritated every time the phase out a good line of barricades. Lately I have been going back to Head which feel a little better after a break in. They have proven to be just as durable as well.

JDMasFCK 01-10-2013 04:46 PM

I totally agree, wont be getting any Nike apparel this year... looks really bad imo

aznhippos 01-10-2013 08:13 PM
