Fed cincy outfit

Hard to say. If anything I'd be more likely to believe he will wear this same design until the Australian Open next year, just in different colourways.

You might be right though we still got many more tournaments to go. Surely they can at least alter the collar.

At least Nike is still keeping it real with the RF!

More Nike fanboys making accounts just to blast a rival company and Federer.

Lol

:cool:

Excuse me? You don't know me and you're talking **** about me? I'm giving you my honest thought on Fed's kit. I'm not a fan boy of any brand. I bought stuffs from all seasons from all clothing brands year round. I buy the stuffs I like and Mix match brand. Don't care if it's Nike Adidas Under Armor Yonex Asics Lacoste etc. As much as I want to try Uniqlo, It just feels too cheap on hand for my liking and the fit is just terrible for my average body type.

You on the other hand, bash people's thought because you can't comprehend them? Fuking low man.

Looks really good to me. I like the switch in the way they are doing the shoulder seams and stitching.

They should release this shirt in a selection of colors.

I like classic and boring shirts. Not all these stupid geometric patterns and random fluorescent colors that seem to be the trend these days

The Cincy navy has been my favorite so far. US Open red looks good too. I really like the shirts he's worn so far. I still wish it was Nike, but this has looked better than the Nike alternatives. Uniqlo is also so much cheaper. I mean you could buy his whole kit with shipping from Japan for $130. With Nike, the shirt alone would cost you $100.
I really hope he can work out a shoe deal with Nike and coordinate colors. He should go back to Fire red's for with his red USO kit lol

I agree that Nike overpriced Federer outfits. Unfortunately so far Uniqlo has not produced anything I would want to buy. All one color is bad.

Interesting. I thought they would have another design lined up for the US Open. Maybe its really early in their relationship. If they have this design for remainder of the year then it would be quite disappointing.

Exactly what I thought.
Unusually see him with only one colored US open apparel.
Probably he might use white color and red shorts during day matches......
I'm hoping they release the Cincinnati color as well, and perhaps he will have some sort of combination.

if they replace the double block on the sleeve with the RF and replace the double block on the shorts with the chest one block, I'm almost OK with it.

Pretty snazzy color for the US Open.
Hope it fits him better.

So funny how all the competitors mirror each other.
Nike has been been featuring Henley's more in their line up before Uniqlo got Fed.

That is true to an extent, but because there are better options out there, not because the sober outfits of Uniqlo don't look the part.

I like the understated simplicity, and would buy the blue one, if the materials are good, and it is for sale.


It is a very safe and versatile colour, so not much to complain about, if one is not looking for really distinctive designs.

I also like the fact that Uniqlo do not pretend to be a "traditional" brand by creating retro designs.

I wrote that I like the fact that a new to the tennis world company is not trying to recreate the spirit of times when it didn't have anything to do with tennis.

IMO, that is an effort to create marketing hype (as it is "cool" to be retro from time to time), drawing from fake sense of history.

Retro is cool, when the person doing it was there, or the company doing it was involved, or it is an original item that was created in its time.

When I see a modern company do retro designs, I am instantly reminded of those car kits that you can buy, where you have a "modern" car with retro body.

IMO, that is tasteless and wrong, as it offends the sense of time and place by trying to recreate part of reality that is missing its logic and flow.

The approach of making something that carries the marks of its time is, IMO, a lot more honest.

Modern with styling throwback to the history of the game is a completely different matter. In my post that you responded to I was talking about retro.

So you wouldn't take issue in me forever being a fan of the stylings of the BMW Z4?

Not sure if it was intended but the stylings of the original seemed somewhat "classic" to me (just not classic BMW, perhaps).

I am not sure what you are referring to here when you talk about styling here.

Was the original drawn from other retro car?

This collection was made especially for Fed, so it's his choice of color scheme too.

I liked the blue, just not blue on blue. Today in combination with the white was good. I’ve always liked the Henley’s and simplistic design.

I got your point of view. Can you provide me with some examples of modern companies without tennis history that do retro designs?

It's apples and oranges, and bananas for somebody. Me prefer blue/blue, white/white and i like classic polo not henleys.

I don't think that it will be particularly hard for you to find one here if you try, and there was a larger point (than finding items worth shopping) I was making.

I remember before I saw the reveal, there were some articles saying that the design was reminiscent of classic muscle cars...tbh that's about it

I don't see similarities, but I would read something that elaborates on the claim.

However, I am not interested in marketing drivel for possibly the American market.

It's okay, I saw loads of them in Germany too.

Sexy car regardless of what audience it's trying to pander to.

I meant the claim that it has anything to do with the "muscle car" category, not that the car is made for the American market.

Muscle cars, by definition, are about show off and raw power, rather than performance of a fast sports car, which is substantially influenced by aerodynamics, which is a clearly visible aspect in the design if the Z-series.

Not to speak of the original car category that was the core of the muscle car movement.

I like retro designs very much, with new tech materials designs of the 80's is the perfect combo.

I know only one modern company that make retro design outfits, it's small but great - Vollaix, hughly recommend it. No other company is familiar to me and i certainly will not make any search for it.

Well you got the one I had in mind, although companies like Fila are also trying and Lacoste has never quite abandoned its effortless timeless approach although there was a period of struggle with its identity (maybe because of the ownership).

The latter two at least are not going for the "straight out of the 70/80 ies" approach, but try to give it a modern twist, which is what I expect from a tennis apparel company.

Business is business, but pretence over design approach as a basis for the ethos behind a company needs a serious understanding about what design really is.

Maybe that is the reason why very serious companies do not simply recreate designs from many decades ago, although they certainly can.

I don't understand your last sentence.

In your previous post you said that you are looking for such companies, and here you say that you do not intend to look for them.

Fila and Lacoste are two great companies with very long tennis history. They could do very good vintage style outfits. Also retro designs were very classy, modern are just sucks style.

I am very curious.

Do you also drive a 70ies car?

I have one that I drive at retro rallies, and as much as I appreciate it for its unique design and features, I will never swap my modern cars for it.

I’m certain he will wear this design until the Australian Open.
 
If i will have possibility i will drive a 60's car.

I am sure you have the opportunity.

The thing is that you don't want any 60ies car (I am assuming you are talking about a Porsche).

You want one particular 60ies design, that has risen above the predominating Godawful 60ies designs, and that is an implementation of what was possible with the then available cutting edge technology (and that is exactly what I was talking about in my previous posts).

I do, i want Corvette Sting Ray and Jaguar E-type.
Modern cars (like modern tennis) do not have style and class and all looking the same.

The E-type was not a unique design among the sports cars of its time.

There were a number of sports cars with similar bodywork, most notably Alfa Romeos and Ferraris.

It is a beautiful car, but, like I said, it was created with the purpose of making the most of the technology that was available at the time.

It is the same with the current sports cars, and super cars, the exterior of which is largely a result of better understanding and being able to harness new technologies.

Compared to them the said retro beauties are dated designs with very little sense.

Also, there were many 60ies designs that were so ugly that it is beyond comprehension how they were even in production.

IMO, the Stingray is also very ugly.

I have also sat in all the vehicles in question, so I can confidently say that, while they are beautiful on the outside the insides are mediocre compared to even moderately expensive modern sports car.
