New Nike Aust Open gear

T21D

The small details such as the reflective bull horns on the heels and on the Rafa/horns on the tongue tag would have made his shoes so desirable.

Nike, take my money! I neeeeeed the white LBs! Seriously, weren't they supposed to be released at the same time as the red ones?

Guys is it just me or the shoes that Rafa wears, remind me of the new (NBA star's Kevin Durant) KD VI's???
 
Oh, I can't post pic from iPhone.

Today, I got Federer's Crimson jacket.
It's not jersey, it's a knit. Soft and very stretch, the silhouette is very tight.
I love it.

TW staff :
Is Rafa's Gladiator premier 7" Shorts "base grey" as written on the TW description ?
It seems as "light base grey" as Federer's shorts, and the Premier Rafa Jacket...
According to the catalog, the shorts are Base Grey as indicated in the description. They are definitely darker than the Fed shorts if held next to each other.

Federer is wearing a different shirt from the retail one.
Collar is different: night factor and red. Much better

Maybe because Federer refused to play in the dark-colored polo like he was supposed to?

"F*** you Nike, it's hot enough to fry an egg out there, I'm not wearing that dark polo in the sun. Make me something white, now."
the dark polo ("night factor") is supposed to be for night matchs.
For day matchs he was supposed to wear the lighter "birch" one.

Maybe the birch color was not good with the short in the end - but was perfect with the grey AO11 shorts he wore in Brisbane 2 weeks ago - so they made a white one for a little bit more contrast (I really don't know, just trying to guess)...

Brisbane short looks exactly the same short from AO2011

and seems like the white polo is PE only not releasing to public?

I thought the "birch" was Brisbane only?

Yes it was AO11 "grey sage" shorts... that's what I wrote in the post you quoted ;)

I quite like the Federer polo that he wore at Brisbane - prefer it to the white one today.

As for the blue one - does the retail version have the different shade of blue for the sleeves ? Not keen on that..

Also, does anyone know if there are still doing cheaper version of Federer's top ? Without the RF logo and slightly different material ??
