On a side note, I look back and I still can't get over how much I really like the green/white kits from 2017. The polo that Tsonga wore and crew which Thiem and Zverev rocked were fantastic. Last years Navy and orange (ish?) was cool too. The one that I really did not like were the 2016 zebra Y-3 collab. But there were quite a few who loved it so just goes to show how tastes differ. Which one is your favorite, J?

Goodness that is atrocious.
It makes the US open barricade collection look compelling.
My only concern is usually the RG collection has the tournament logo... so maybe this is just a practice top?

I always anticipate this collection as well.

Someone had just posted a picture of a women’s tank above called the “Paris tank” but it looks like it was deleted...

There is a new collection on Adidas’s tennis page they are promoting and on social media.
It looks like it’s just for clay court season since it’s not RG-affiliated

There is no RG collection this year. The line they are promoting today on social media is for the French Open.

A lot of it is on UK Adidas. I am sure TW or at least TWE will stock it soon.

The black and blue is actually refreshingly clean from Adidas. Simple. Would NOT look ridiculous wearing it at a club

This is Thiem's shirt:


And the Ubers are clean too. Nothing crazy

Bummer. Doesn’t do anything for me. To me, that blue color has nothing to do with the black they have paired it with. It looks like a guy rummaged through his drawer and pulled out the first two adidas items he could find without regard to whether they went together well. Not a lot of effort there sadly......

I'm with you. Not a fan of this either. I believe 2017 and 2018 were amazing kits by comparison (Rolland Garros insignia was a plus as well). The jackets really looked good as well especially the dark one (Thiem).

2017:


2018:




I wasn't a fan if the Y3 collab in 2016 though.

It's a slightly safe and simplistic look but I personally like those kinds of designs, and you can't really ever go wrong with those. I think that blue and black combo should stand out nicely against the red clay.

I also find it totally uninspired. Disappointing but oh well.
Mostly I don’t understand how the design team gets paid so much, to come up with ideas like this... I should apply lol...

This makes me a bit sad. Adidas RG line has been something to look forward to every year and like others have said; the past two years have been great!

I like it anyway. Hopefully see more of the men's line soon. Those uber 3's look nice though.
Doesn't look good, looks like a night gown. I think Adidas entire line this year might have some sort of blue color in it, like their Play for the Oceans campaign. Might be wrong though.

The Adidas Men's outfit looks standard and like one user said wouldn't be too flashy worn recreationally.

Poor Garbine. They must be punishing her for the rankings drop by putting her in that awful dress. The waistline cut is so unflattering and the skirt part looks baggy like a kilt
She used to wear the Stella line. Is adidas no longer paired w/ them?

Wow, what a let-down.

Can't help but agree with the thread consensus: this is a very disappointing line.

Maybe my expectations were too high after 17 and 18 collections.

In all fairness, expectations doesn’t really need to be high at all in order to be disappointed by this line. ;)

Agree that 17 and 18 had me expecting something great, or at least something with the RG logo. And the parley line was ambitious and great also. This is just...as I believe someone else here has said - plain.

What is it that you don't like about the blue outfit posted (head to toe, including the shoes)?

:cool:
The graphics, colour choices, even the lack of priority Roland Garros branding, it's a big step down from the normal flagship Roland Garros line that Adidas has been doing the last few years (imo). Even the cut looks a bit dull but could be hard to assess that without seeing it on the players. Maybe the initial photos are misleading.

There is nothing wrong with blue per se (we saw it used well in January) but here it is used in a mediocre fashion (again, imo).

I could be a victim of high expectations, but the Adidas RG lines in the last few years have been used to break new ground visually whereas this looks more like an Adidas club line.

What I still want to know is what the range is like from a performance standpoint.

Do you think you will buy the whole outfit, or just some elements from the range?

I have no idea, but the poster is a known Nike fanboy (the user name and profile pic tell the story), so I don't expect him to give any sensible answer.

:cool:
Hahahahaha, this is too funny. Please check my older posts to see how much of a fanboy I am, even though I do believe the Air Tech Challenge II is the sweetest tennis shoe ever designed. Regarding what a gym look is, I'm gonna use one of my favorite saying from Beavis and Butthead: "if you don't know dude, I'm not gonna tell you" ;)

Totally agree. The 2017/18 Roland Garros adidas lines were arguably the best lines of each year in the whole sport. This isn't bad, but it doesn't measure up to the standard they had previously set.
