I had the white shirt with the blue and black checked "rip" through the middle and matching embroidery on the edge of the collar and sleeves.

Probably my all time favourite tennis shirt. Wore it until it was just threads.

This dude is cataloging all the annual clothing lines for Agassi starting in 1986 and the first few hears has overlap with the McEnroe/Checkered stuff. Seems to have all the different variations of the checkered shirts. Not sure if this guy is doing the art himself, but pretty cool:

This stuff is amazing!

Going thru all the pages, is it just me or the designs went from wow! to okay, in the end? Also, moving to adidas didn't help with the wow factor, hahahaha

Abosultly, from 2000 onwards it was pretty bland. There were two seasons in a row (01 & 02) with the butter colored button down, yikes. Not much clothing from 99-05 really does much for me.

Well they (Nike) did move to the skateboard/punk rock/surf like influence of the early ‘00. That’s why you saw mostly white and black and a small mix of color.

It’s all me. I learned the basics of adobe photoshop when I was 17. my sister moved back in with us after finishing art school (Savannah College of Art and Design) in 1994. She had a brand new Apple Macintosh and she knew graphic design. She taught me and I had a fun time making weird pictures. That was 25 years ago, and I’ve kept up my skills. All the designs and all the artwork on my website is my creation. It’s a lot of fun. Like playing tennis, it’s agonizing at first because you can’t do anything right. But, with great practice you can really impress.

I restarted international shipping. USPS and fedex. FedEx is expensive, but it’s reliable. USPS to Canada has been ok. Some packages to France have taken two months (but most are 10-14 days). I’ve learned how to do both fedex and USPS international online, so I don’t have to stand in the long lines and be potentially exposed to covid. I get enough of that at my day job.
