is anyone else a fan. tipsy s new gear looks high quality
I have stuff from the last several years, I liked the Boris Becker stuff they re-released, would buy more of that, but the current Tipsy stuff just looks very bland, nothing special.
The old stuff was good - by "old" I mean from the 1970's.
The most recent stuff have a strange fit in that the shirts are very wide and short. Since I'm tall and thin, the shirts just don't fit me properly. Also, some of their tennis shorts are too short for modern times.
Fila and Nike are pretty much the dominant brands in my collection of tennis gear. I have a lot of the retro Fila stuff that is sold mostly in the UK like the Borg and Vilas shirts. If you can find the retro stuff it's really nice but most of it is more classic than the new performance poly crap.
I like it the shoes too.
Tipsy's shoes look nice. But I've heard bad things about filas in the past.
Oooh what is wrong with them? They look durable?
I don't know just heard it around here...
oh ok i may still try them
I like the Fila shorts. I have one shirt, and the fit is awkward.
Yeah the fit is odd, the sleeves are too long.
The materials on the Tipsy shirts are no better or worse than the poly stuff seen on millions of other activewear shirts. They certainly don't feel any better or worse quality to me. I like how Tipsy's shirt stripe integrates visually into the stripes on his shorts.
Ditto, these are the brands I willingly shop for, although shipping from the UK's 80's Casuals store is an extortionate joke. I found a department store in Kuala Lumpur that was selling Borg/Vilas inspired Fila cotton shirts and polos and stocked up there.
Can I know which department store? Thanks, mate
Isetan in the Bukit Bintang shopping mall where H+M is. Let us know how you go.
