    Thanks. Good info. I’m pretty chill. Just commenting on a board dedicated to tennis apparel.

    adidas Fall Release—Red and Black Again

    Come on, adidas. I want to love your stuff. But I really feel like it’s you, not me. You have to meet me half way. You did the red and black argyle thing, then match code and now this. Where are the releases like the London Henley a couple years ago? Or the RG green and white? Or the...

    Tennis Channel Ads I Can’t Stand

    Joe Nameth calling the Medicare helpline and “getting all the benefits he deserves... Including rides to medical appointments!” Ugh. The NEW Jardiance commercial. Just your average, perfectly diverse bunch of adults taking time from their weekend to kick it in a group setting about Type...

    Best kits of 2019 RG?

    Totally agree. @Bobby Jr is the man for Ellesse. Has hooked me up. But you are very right — such subpar designs and fit these days. Feli wore the Japanese line and I don’t think anyone on tour is wearing that or if they even are still making it. Feli’s line was awesome. Big loss.....

    Best kits of 2019 RG?

    Good thread. I’d go Yonex and Nishikori Uniqlo. Honorable mention to Nike for going for it. Really like parts of that collection. Not for me though with the exception of the bee shorts (paired with a plain gray or white tee).

    Adidas 2019 French Open.

    Absolutely. I bought that kit and love it. Wish the shorts were less baggy but still great.

    Adidas 2019 French Open.

    Observation: As I watch Theim/Novak, and having watched a many other adidas sponsored players at RG: 1. The design of the current shorts looks bizarrely short. 2. The design of the current shorts makes even these elite athletes look leavier than they are. Probably because of the length and...

    Fed FO 2019 Outfit is out!

    Agree. Yeah, the Nishikori kit is not always available in the US, but I think signing Fed raised the profile enough that they are now offering it.

    Why does Le Coq look so good?

    LOVING the crew Hanfmann is wearing from Le Coq against Nadal..... Can’t find it though.

    Adidas 2019 French Open.

    I’m really bummed we don’t have a true adidas RG kit this year...... Truly a first world problem, I realize.....

    Absolutely. Very easy mark.

    Fed FO 2019 Outfit is out!

    So I thought the Fed kit was really poor. Got the Nish stuff and passed on Fed. The. I wastched the video posted. Think that looks great. Had to go back and pick up the shorts and the tee. It is possible I’m not as smart as I think.

    Nike Summer 2019

    I have virtually no Nike pieces in my wardrobe other than shoes, but they really brought it with this release. Cudos. Love the bee shorts but can’t figure out what to wear as a shirt with it. The plain white on the model doesn’t do it for me.

    Fashion Alert : Worst Outfit Ever!

    This reminds me of the old Berdych H&M kits. Not my cup of tea, but I applaud Nike for being creative.

    Nishikori Pink Compression Shorts

    Anyone know where to get them or brand? They do not seem to be Uniqlo.

    Nice Job in Rome, Australian L’Alpina

    Totally. Agree 100%. I have a couple including the current. The last collection with the army green was a miss for me but a few have been excellent recently

    Nice Job in Rome, Australian L’Alpina

    They did a solid job with the apparel the ballkids and lines people are wearing, including the jackets that some wore during the rain.

    Fed FO 2019 Outfit is out!

    Yikes. I was a huge fan of Uniqlo tennis gear a few years ago, but this is tough. First they give Roger a shirt with a collar that looks like he should be playing pickle ball in Boca and now an outfit that looks like he should be hunting crocodiles in the Outback.

    Bumping Up Using Poser Techniques

    I’ll pretend to see a microscopic piece of debris on the court and pick it up and hold it out in my hand waiting for a ball kid to race in and take it from me. Quite effective actually.

    Nike Summer 2019

    How does Dimitrov get out of wearing the mustard and faded blue kit Nike is currently selling? Thought you had to win a slam to get a separate gig. Maybe bc he won the year end a couple years ago?

    Tiafoe 2019 Estoril Open shirt (Round of 32)

    Jesus. Give the OP a break. Christ. This is the stuff you point out in a tennis forum in a sub forum about pro gear. So tired of outrage. Breathe.

    Why does Le Coq look so good?

    Are these the sizes that worked Coq for you? Are usually wear a large Adidas shirt and a medium Adidas shorts for point of reference.

    Lajovic Fila Shorts in Monte Carlo?

    Thanks. Smart that he has them tailored. Looks much better that way. Fila shorts look so ill fitting on all the other players who wear them (Schwartzman, Cilic, etc). Ellesse has the same problem these days.

    Lajovic Fila Shorts in Monte Carlo?

    I have never gotten into Fila gear in large part because I have never like the cut of their shorts (too baggy). Does anyone know which Fila shorts Lajovic is wearing in Monte Carlo? Much more tailored cut. Look great. Thanks

    Fila Shorts Question

    Hi TW, Bit of an unorthodox question, but I’ve wanted to get into Fila gear and have always resisted because the cut of their shorts was too baggy or, in my view, sloppy (on me). Does anyone at TW know which Fila shorts Lajovic is wearing in Monte Carlo? They are much more tailored and look...

    2019 Player Gear: Best Sponsor?

    Very tough year for apparel as far as I’m concerned. Sad. So I’d say Australian L’Alpina. https://img.tenniswarehouse-europe.com/watermark/rsg.php?path=/cat_banners/ADAUS.jpg&nw=770

    Baggy Look Making a Comeback?

    Interesting — seems that after several years of tight, form fitting kits, there are signs that designers are moving back toward Sampras-era stylings. For example, some of the (non-Rafa) kits from Nike seems to be larger. And Diadora kits are the same right now. Probably are others.....

    Nike Summer 2019

    Speaking of gold, the mustard yellow polo I’m seeing Rublev and others wearing, along with faded out, pseudo-Agassi shorts looks like crap to me.

    Adidas 2019 French Open.

    To add to that— even my beloved Ellesse keeps disappointing me. Bright spot: picked up at Australian L’Alpina kit from TWE recently.
