Thanks mate, i'll keep that in mind.
Fed's light blue shirt looked better out in the sunlight than it did in the store with fake lighting. Now I'm tempted...
USO Night Polo is the GPOAT. I've never worn something so light and well-ventilated.
I know that by your last name "Huynh" Do you speak Vietnamese?
Thank you for the nice words. And yes indeed I'm looking for a hitting partner right now
Well there's a home made red clay courts by one Vietnamese veteran but it's in the North though...
And you're still battling whether you should buy that blue crew or not?
/Urghhh, my $60 phone doesnt want to sync yet so I still cant post pics
^ I don't haha. I understand it when my grandparents and parents speak it though..
You should post in the Tennis Travel section; list your level, time you're available; whether you want to practice, play, join a league team, etc.
I got the white one the 1st day it went on sale. Like I said the light blue looked good in the sun. But might get the night polo - or just wait for the winter stuff.
It seems Roger is wearing the SL version in both shoes (day and night session). No more mesh as he wanted in the beginning of the year.
The night polo is pure genius. It seems like they get better and better quality each season. The AO2012 polo feels like trash compared to the night USO one.
Thank you very much, I just realized that I'm supposed to post there too.
That's quite important in California right Good luck with your purchasing!
I agree to a certain extent. The USO polo indeed feels quite better than the AO; with very nice details on the sleeve, a longer back hem and a nice collar that stands up too.
My part of the state! You're going to be seeing a lot of grey skies and fog in your near future. But better than moving to Minnesota and using your tennis rackets as snow shoes...
I would go for the winter stuff, that purple polo has been on my want list ever since I laid eyes on the catalog version =D
Got the university blue crew! Much nicer that I though.
A nice detail is that there is actually 2 shades of blue:
the front panel is brighter that the neck, shoulders, back and sleeves.
I hope you can clearly see it on my picture below :
We saw a promo video, weeks ago (can't find it again, sorry), with Federer wearing another version of this blue crew with white neck/back/sleeves.
Maybe it was a first attempt, and they decided to changed it to a slightly darker blue. Nice.
I also took pictures of the blue crew with different shorts :
White (it's the white/obsidian from 2011) just like Federer did at the USO.
Obsidian (Nadal 2011 version) to match the obsidian details from the crew :
I think that the Federer setup obviously looks great, but the obsidian short really matchs it too !!!!!
(I would probably buy the USO obsidian short with red stripes, to match the red details too)
Great shirt! Shame Roger only wore it for 1 match.
Yeah very nice crew! I'm liking this new trend in Fed's USO lineup with the v-neck crews during the day and dark polos for under-the-lights. Shame he made such an early exit....but maybe now Murray has a chance to win his first major! Didn't like the guy much before but he grew on me after his great play at Wimby and push for Gold. And plus I don't like Djoker at all.
Anyway,nice buy Raph, probably the best crew pick from the nike fall lineup.
Blue looks silly in my opinion. White one is CLEAN. Matches the black and the obsidian shorts as well.
I also tried it with the USO11 short :
Looks a bit weird, but the red stripes makes sense after all...
Got a camera here with me finally (most of these are ~ 2 weeks old)
And yes, I will match those Elites with these outfits!
Mistake the real premiers with these reversibles. Anyone wanna help me out by taking them?...
Bonus pic of epic comforter
Those elites will perfectly match the outfit! Looks sweet. And I really like the red and black stripes lining the pockets for the shorts
Bad news. After ONE wash, the "no sew" bonding of the white RF top got unglued.
Which one? The one on the polo?
Nike needs a six month guarantee on their shirts that cost way too much, what a joke. You can't exchange this can you?
I think he meant the Cincy crew one. Which is kind of strange to me since I thought the short would be more fragile.
Obsidian V9 with white laces
Looks pretty nice. Congratulations on your purchase, btw.
Wow those obsidian vapors look great, and the white laces was a good idea. Accompanies the white swoosh well! How do they feel on the court?
Thank you . I also get some new stuff here:
Thank you for the nice words. Too bad I have only played once in them, so far so good though. Nice comfort and feel more secure than V8 for me but still does not make me feel extremely confident on court yet (maybe it's just me who havent hit for a while)
Just a question concerning the fall collection:
Does anyone have the marine shorts and the light blue RF crew and can tell me if they are matching?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Just saw that somebody posted a picture of that combination just one page before that one.
I get the obsidian short to match the top finally, sorry for the low quality pic.
Also got this jacket, but since it does not feel like $99 quality, I'm returning it:
Might be returning this also, it does not match the USO'11 top that well:
I found some of the RF stuff in Nike Town Vegas....and the quality seems to be going down?
one shirt already pulling apart at the seams.
meanwhile the Sharapova stuff I picked up for the wife looked really nice and well made...why such a difference in quality from the same brand?
Pictures of seems falling apart please ?
ON TW Europe website . . . oh yeah!
When will the WTF gear be released?
Could you go into detail more about the jacket? I really like the look of the new seaweed one that is out, but I don't want to blow that much money if it is really that bad.
I actually liked the jacket. It's not a warm jacket. made with a very interesting "hard" polyester material but has panels of spandex that let you actually practice in it. it has exceptional details, much better than the N98 Rafa jackets.
Never thought I'd see the day when a company used 'seaweed' as a color descriptor.
Is it just me or did they shorten the Nadal shorts for Fall and Winter?
Some of it is already available now, like the shoes the shorts and the jacket.
Just the polo is missing.
They did, and will shorten it even more next year unfortunately.
That's such crap, Nadal can't like that.
Good. Seriously, who needs a 11" inch inseam unless your over 6" foot tall? Pirate pants style.
With new shoes, bandana and wristbands now I have the complete USO day outfit. Still need the obsidian wristband to complete the night one though, hopefully sky is going to help me on that
And of course, I am going to do my best - just send me an email.
