ATP Finals 2018
Only outfits I’ve not really liked. They’ve done a great job with some gems there like Cinci last year, this year and French this year.Madrid/Rome 2019
I didn't like the Madrid/Rome outfit, because of the low contrast between the white and the light mint green, the completely out of place shoes and the "lab collar" as I dubbed it.Only outfits I’ve not really liked.

The Madrid outfit was a total mess. Seems like they forgot to send over the correct pair of shorts to roger and he thus had to wear his remaining Miami shorts. That blue didn’t go well with the white at all.I didn't like the Madrid/Rome outfit, because of the low contrast between the white and the light mint green, the completely out of place shoes and the "lab collar" as I dubbed it.
It is interesting that we are of exactly the same opinion about his best outfits. For me RG was number one, followed by Cincy 2018 and Cincy 2019 (although the preference is strictly because there is more contrast against the court, I like the colours of 2019 better). I actually like the Wimbledon 2019 because of the collar (I think that they struck gold with that one and should continue to use it) and also Shanghai, which is a very nice combination of colours. The others are more settled, but very very wearable combinations.
Eeeexactly, it is a dress shirt collar type *. That is one of my preferred collar styles for dress shirts, so I am partial to the shape and cutaway. As for the single thread, I don't know about that (I don't have so much use for completely white outfits, so I didn't buy it, and the Cincy outfit is not available), but nothing that cannot be remedied next time I am with my tailor.Yeah when I first saw that collar, or more specifically the lack of buttons where the elastic is, I was weary, but seeing roger wear it did change my mind. I must say though I don’t like how in the retail version, it’s held together by a single thread. Seems like it’s bound to break. The collar seems to be inspired by the wing tip collar on dress shirts it seems. The Australian open collar was a miss, but this is a hit.
I do wonder if, and when they will start to go a bit crazier with the designs and start introducing patterns. Or maybe roger doesn’t want that.
He has been wearing the exact same shoes all year. He certainly had the exact same black colour way during RG. The white model dates back all the way to the AO. The only special colour ways for him were for Madrid/RG, and Wimbledon (well, not much of a colour way anyway).This is amazing. Glad Nike gave him black shoes. In the original promo he had white shoes.
Honestly that third picture with the black headband/white shirt/black shorts/white shoes combo is the best looking one for me. I'm glad Uniqlo is slowly but surely giving Fed more unique and sharp designs.USO 2019 (more pics to follow as the tournament progresses)
As far as I can tell that combination is the most pleasing for the majority of the people that saw all of Federer's USO outfits this year. It certainly is to me.Honestly that third picture with the black headband/white shirt/black shorts/white shoes combo is the best looking one for me.
