    I (think I) have this polo.

    But looking at the picture his collar seems like normal width. But my one is much narrower. Is there a difference between the one Federer wore and the retail version?

    Thanks in advance.

    Federer wears customized shirts and his collars usually seem to be a bit stiffer and longer than the retail versions.

    I was at some tennis/golf retail store and they had a few leftovers of the same polo recently. I must say, the collar was crazy short. It was almost awkward how short that thing was. The shirts in the picture above must be how they made all of the retail versions. Lucky guy, that RF is....


    Cheers!

    Yep Roger's shirts are customised and always different from the retail versions. The collars for Roger's versions are always crisp and smart, whereas the retail versions are usually soft. The Manhatten polo is probably one of the worst replicas of Roger's shirts. Apart from the collar, the Nike swoosh is too tiny, and the cut for the shirt is really small. Nike improved the replicas for this season's shirts though, and they look closer to what Roger actually wears.
