Yes, I mean they "borrowed" heavily on the iconic look of the Fila Borg line. Sure Fila doesn't "own" the pinstripe, but thanks to Borg this particular Fila shirt has gained a certain notoriety and is often referenced (see "The Royal Tenenbaums", "The Squid and the Whale"), that is has become one of the quintessential references for a tennis shirt, much like what the Zippo is for lighters.
Nike being such a design driven company I am a little surprised that they ended up so close to such an obvious reference, especially as Nike is generally creating those design icons themselves.
Having said that, it is really nice.
