It may have two on one sleeve (in Eng & Jpn), but the one on the left side is Novak's logo.
Hardly a great looking outfit.
What a way to make a intro to your new brand than with a bland white zip polo with a few stripes and white shorts. At least put him in that shirt in solid red so he stands out against the backdrop. I like Djoker but feel his choices are very odd. Maybe this was all last minute and this polo was just something to get him in. Japanese brands are all about exclusives and interesting collaborations so I doubt (hope??) that he won't be in the white/white outfit forever. At least he is fitted well and not slobbing around in XXL stuff like Roddick.
(I also don't know what his designers (adidas/ST/ULQ) always put detailing down his right side, his Roma outfit was horrible)
I also don't get his new logo. I watched the design video so I get what they were attempting, but what was produced is a non-memborable few arcs that do not convey tennis or his name. He was getting somewhere with the Adidas bird/hawk imagery, maybe just a bird logo? Or just a square with Dj in it?
Nishikori's UNIQLO shirts have been hit or miss, always seemed tame for such a fun guy. I think their designs are a bit goofy, kinda bad-90s badminton gear.
Thank you, I have eyes. I said "logos", not "Uniqlo logos".
You summed the Uniqlo gear I've seen to date perfectly right there. They look like 1980s Chinese Communist Party badminton team uniforms.
Uniqlo better put Djokovic into a t-shirt and leave polos to real men like Federer.
Hooray for abuse of apostrophes.
Uniqlo - is it coming to TW?
Imagine the uproar if Nole had signed with those arriviste Chinese brands like Li-Ning or Erke...I wouldn't have been surprised if he did. Money talks.
Just waiting for Djoker to plaster his Uniqlo shirts with all those ultra-nationalist -sorry- patriotic Serbian colours he seems to wear everywhere nowadays
So I guess no more $20 sports clothes from Uniqlo very soon...
you do have eyes and one big stubborn head, too...
There is nothing wrong (and absolutely no over-marketing) with his logos there...
real man -- anyone but girly Swiss, please...
Anyway, the t-shirts are MUCH cooler than the polos...
Is there the other reason to sign with the clothing company???
.....thanks. I can imagine it was not easy to believe but my sources were and are real and well 'inserted into the system.
nobody wanted to believe it but who did probably saved some money not buying the ND ST outfit presented in rome as it stood alive for just two weeks.....
it will be my pleausure to share more info with you as they'll come up to my ears....
I, for one, think that zipper polo is mad sexy.
....as i confirmed djokovic was going to sign with uniqlo after somedays the forum managment cancelled the thread and all my posts posts...... the money power.... the thread was ' big rumours: djokovic to nike'...cancelled as all my posts...
do you have any info about the deal?
I hope they give him more colors than red, white, and blue.
Of course not, that's why everyone does it.
No... wait. :lol:
You really should learn when to tuck your tail between your legs and give up. You've hit rock bottom in terms of your credibility on this topic and continue to dig.
No... But apparently a supply of free shoes is enough for a footwear deal.
Roger triple bagel Nadal in RG is more likely to be true than this.
The outfit looks very ordinary. MEH
Tennis warehouse is exclusive seller of ST brand in USA. Because they have their store in Europe from which they import the goods.
To say that Novak is no longer with ST is attack on tennis warehouse's profit that's why they deleted your thread.. Too bad that this forum doesnt allow free speech :-? :-?
You seem very jealous and insecure.
You are so right. Uniqlo is bargin house for relatively stylish atheltic wear for low cost.
I actually like their style; simple and clean, not over the top like the latest from adidas. I hope they come out w/ the novak series everywhere soon unlike Nishikori's stuff which was only for japan.
But yea, I hope they don't take it as a license to start selling polos for 80.
Great work my friend.
Are you sure about this? I have seen ST in many other stores, even online.
Does Uniqlo make good T-shirts ? most japanese clothing companies make some great T's but i haven't seen any in their website
"The only way one US retailer, Tennis Warehouse, was able to carry Djokovic’s Tacchini gear exclusively in the US, is that it was shipping gear that it had received from its European affiliate."
Yes, but within the context that it "reeks of despiration" and that you doubt it "increases exposure in marketing terms", implies that either 1) you were referring to Uniqlo logos or 2) you're making up/modifying your argument as you go.
Maybe they mean that they were able to get it in regular basis? because I know that TE and HB used to have some of the ST lines including Djokovic's, but I also know that ST had troubles covering the demand here in the US so maybe TW was able to get all the lines in enough quantities via TWE.
I think it would've been great it he moved to Fila.
Where was Will Smith on this list?
Why do they need him to sign anything, he could just wear it for free right, kinda like that Nike he'll be wearing, WHOOPS, BAHAHAHA.
Better how? Aside from that dragon stencil crap, Tacchini had some nice looking designs.
This Uniqlo gear looks pretty generic, so I don't see anything is "way better".
I am more curious about what is the exact contract with Uniqlo.
seems like it's not good as I might expect because the 5 year contract include off courts apparels too
He might not have any other endorsements from off courts high end apparel companies... I can't image that Djokovic can only wear uniqlo clothes all the time for next 5 years.
Never seen a millionaire only wears Gap/old navy clothes all the time......
I liked this one:
This one too:
Then.... they did this:
Seriously, i prefer the angel than the FLAG one, THE FLAG ONE IS THE WORST DESIGN EVER...
Dragon is even better than that
They deleted it because Babolast and others in the thread kept citing sources that didn't really exist. Once called out on this by several people, everyone was then called trolls by him. TW deleted the thread for that reason.
Not sure if you were serious about the free speech stuff, but that doesn't apply on a website you sign up for to use.
That white/blue one is a f****** beast, how the hell did they go so wrong???
Went from coolness to the eurovision contest.
His team is still wearing ST
This one was the worst from ST imo:
One of my favorites
bottom line, they are the biggest seller of ST in US.
LOL. For some reason this looks to me like something you would buy in a motorcycle apparel store.
That red shirt leads me to believe his RG setup is going to be much more subtle and toned down than the ST gear.
It is the practice shirt and (may) have nothing to do with the actual RG shirt he will be wearing...
No, I am just open about the purse man
You continue to make an idiot out of yourself!
Credibility??? I never came up with any "info" on his switch, I just stuck to Babolast as he has been more credible than other sources. Again, we will see what happens.
2012 + 5 != 2013 however" 2009 + 10 never added up to 2012 either. Money talks...
