Not sure if anyone notice this. The jacket wore by RF in this video is the same exact same jacket sold on Uniqlo website WITHOUT the uniqlo logo on sale for $14.90:
I purchased that jacket a few months ago and put Uniqlo logo on it exactly as seen. I also put the RF logo on the jacket along with the small sign GOAT, just below the RF logo ;)
Ha! I have the same one as well!

Still can't get over Rafa's outfit. I love a controversial pop of colour but it's too much and the shoes are so child-like! I'd prefer more purple on him not pink.

Is the goat sign easily removable?

BTW, are you doing that on purpose? It is embarrassing to read how proud you are with your fake goods.
Yes, I am doing that on purpose. I am not selling them and I am proud of it.

It is embarrassing to read how proud you are with your fake goods. Going back to our previous conversation, no, most Federer fans wouldn't want the fake logos on their stuff.
You care to list the source where you get this from? I get it that you don't want it but where is your evidence that most Fed fans don't want it.

I was at USTA center in Orlando recently and I have no shortage of kids, and even adults themselves, approached my kid and asked him where he got the jacket from and they WANT it. My kid told them as the jacket is "custom" made it for him and literally everyone wants to have it, regardless of how much it cost.

Yes, the source is the fact that the overwhelming majority of the said fans are not looking for such fake goods (despite of your assurances how much interest towards your stuff there was from ...... kids), are not wearing them, and would label such accordingly, if they are aware that someone is trying to sell them such.

Anyway, the thread here is about something else, but we can check your hypothese by making a thread with a poll about that and see what people on this site think.

Again, you're not providing anything to back up your claim. Most people are not wearing them because they are not available for sale anywhere, legally.

Just want to point out that the jacket worn by Federer in that twitter feed is the exact same jacket made for Novak Djokovic when Novak was sponsored by Uniqlo. I checked at some of the jackets I bought for my wife and daughter back in 2016 and 2017, Uniqlo used to sell those jackets with Uniqlo logo on them but they stopped doing that after Federer was sponsored by Uniqo in the summer of 2018.

Since I customized many items for a while... here is my thought.
From general tennis population, logos or personal initials/images do not mean anything for “MOST” of them. From Fed fans, Purist only wants items from manufacturers and Many die-hard fed fans want any items even thought it’s fake or customized. it used to be almost 50-50. Those die-hard fans were peaked around 2009 and started to decrease. I am seeing much lower numbers nowadays.

False. People get all sorts of fake goods, and if they wanted to they would have commissioned someone to do it for them even if such weren't available. The fact that almost no one is doing it is indicative. There is a customiser on this site that can and does exactly that and I see that he already chimed in. Interesting that you liked his post when he confirms what I am saying.

It is just a normal jacket that is a staple in the Uniqlo lineup. They put a logo on it and that is the only difference. It is not a special line or special materials, so, even if they put special logo on it it is just that, but now they don't even do Federer's logo. It would be another matter if you can get hold of for example his RG jacket as those are not staples in the Uniqlo lineup. If you could you would have an interesting item even without the logo, because the fact that is worn by the player as well as its exclusivity will make it such. You are literally swooning over things that anyone can buy for peanuts and put on logos that aren't even on the player's own apparel. Then you boast about kids wanting to spend their parent's money on these fakes. Really, how absurd an affiliation with clothing logos can get? We get it, you bought some mass produced athletic apparel dirt cheap. Putting logos on it won't make it "exclusive".

LOL... I like the way you selectively phrased the kimguroo. He said: "From general tennis population, logos or personal initials/images do not mean anything for “MOST” of them.

Much lower does not mean 0%.

I guess you and I just have to disagree.

I didn't "selectively phrased" him. I literally said that what he says confirms my stance, which is that there is no major interest among the Fed fans about fakes, which is confirmed by his words:

"Purists only want items from manufacturers"

You are not a manufacturer and your fake items do not fulfil the requirements for originality as per his own words, so you are left with the "die-hard fans".

The said die-hard fans are only a very small part of the entire fanbase, and most of them are some sort of "collectors" of apparel. As I previously said, that contingent has absolutely nothing to do with your multiple claims like "most people", "most Fed fans" etc. Even amongst them there are many who wouldn't even pay for his original apparel, let alone for customisations.

Now you have lowered your estimates to "the % of such people is not 0". Well, duh, you are one of them, so it is obviously not zero, but that doesn't mean that you are right and most definitely means that I am right.



I guess you and I just have to disagree.
Disagree on what? You already agreed with me that the number of people that would be looking for such items is extremely low.

Federer's and Nishi's outfits are up on the Uniqlo's European websites for those interested.

I really wanted these but seems like the replica versions you can buy are not the same as Fed's, missing the stripe design on the shorts, sleeves etc... just plain versions it seems

That is correct. The colours are very good, but the details of the retail shorts are underwhelming. I bought the white crew and socks and will be looking to acquire the Federer original model at some point. Also bought multiple of the Nishi's socks and wristbands, as I found them to match very well with Fed's RG outfit from last year, adding even more retro vibe to it. All in all, could have been better, but nothing to complain about.

I think this is one of the issues with Uniqlo. Federer original model is not there and it makes people resort to making "fake" model.

Novak Djokovic did a much better job when he was sponsored by Uniqlo. Yes, the NovaK original model could not be purchased on Uniqlo web site but you could go to Djokovic's foundation and purchased the original model there. For example, Uniqlo only sold the Uniqlo with Novak's emblem on the shirts and jackets; however, Djokovic's foundation sold the same shirt and jacket but it also has the Peugeot logo on the shirt and jacket. The foundation also has some other items specifically to celebrate Novak the the official Uniqlo web site did not.

Wish Federer does the same thing so that I don't have to come up with "fake" items :p

I got my Fed gear. I like the navy shirt a lot more than the white one so I just bought two navy blue shirts, one a size down because I will be trying to lose weight. Bought the wristband and socks as well.

$300,000,000 and Uniqlo produce retail attire that is so far below par that, in spite of the money, Fed can't actually bring himself to compete in it, and instead has to wear reverse engineered copies of his previous sponsor's gear. Lucky that Uniqlo aren't responsible for producing the things that really count, like his racquet and shoes. Enjoy!

There you go again with your fakes! FYI, you cannot make a fake model of Federer's lilac shorts: the tone in tone pinstripes are either there or they aren't.

These companies are not paying me to wear their clothes, so, since I cannot totally avoid logos, I would like to have as few as possible. Why would anyone want to have PEUGEOT on his sleeve just because someone who is paid to do it has it is beyond me. BTW, RF foundation also is selling some original Uniqlo items. The difference is, you want to put on logos that are not even on Fed's apparel, never mind retail.

Yeah but they haven't put the socks up in the UK. I even went to the store, wristbands, shirt , shorts all there, even nishikori socks but the fed socks aren't there or listed as available even though the model wearing his kit was wearing his socks!

My brother lives in the US and can get me the socks though...and everything is cheaper in the US! $8 v £8 for socks/wristbands

They were definitely there upon release. I first looked up the German and the French Uniqlo site for Fed's items and there were only Nishi's socks and wristbands. I even thought that there won't be a release for Fed's socks and wristbands in those countries, so I looked up the UK website and they were there (7.90 GBP for a pair).

Strange, I checked the website around lunch time on the day they came out, and nothing :( snooze you lose I guess! hopefully they re-stock.

I went to the store at the weekend, they had the full kit but no socks, not even on the model (which was wearing the nishikori socks). Their posters in the shop also listed shirt, shorts and wristband only.

I see. Yes, that is the case, as they seem to produce limited quantities of some items. To be fair, they might not be as limited as it looks, but the quality, paired with an attractive for it price makes people buy more than normally, as they are not available in other times. I know I do, and I am a recent buyer of these items. They are better quality than anything from Adidas or Nike, and on par with some Lacoste socks (which are my main staple but at double the price).

Hey @jmacdaununder2, Im interested in what you said about Fed having to wear reverse engineered gear. Is there any article pointing to this fact? All I know is that I just noticed what he is wearing at the Australian Open is different to what Uniqlo is selling on their website. On the website's Overview it says, "Replica wear" and the sleeves on the t-shirts are different. There is like a lengthwise pattern flowing from the neck towards the purple accent on Fed's actual t-shirt, which is missing on Uniqlo's sale item:

totally agree, bought last year's AU and Wimbledon collection and I must say materials is just the same with their regular Uniqlo's DRY EX line compared to what Roger is wearing which is seen on photos. Roger's materials seems to be Nike-ish, thinner and lightweight compared to DRY EX materials, it's not actually that bad when we consider the the price. Of course if you're Roger Federer you can pretty much request anything you want, look at his current AU Nike Vapor X shoes.

I love all the dry ex stuff. I wear the Crew shirts a lot for both causal and tennis ($14-$19US) They have strategic mesh paneling on the side and at the back which seems to be close to what Rog has on the shoulders area of his authentic piece? More ventilation? Occasionally, I will rock the Fed "gamewear" shirts/shorts and they perform great and have held up well. For the price of $39, I am satisfied with the Replica items. However, I would love for them to offer the authentic version for say $70ish especially the AO kits as the extra detailing looks great.

Oh dear, and now the clones appear. A whole squadron of them. New users too with interesting tagging of likely minded individuals.

said who? re-read my comment, been a Uniqlo user here way before they signed Fed, the only reason I bought last year's stuff as it's just minimal looking not bcoz RF is wearing them, got both plain white for AU/Wimby Polo and short, didn't even bought the US one since I didn't like the design same with this year's AU. I mentioned it's not that bad considering the price, I bought mine for 25USD each so reasonable, why would I want the clone I'm no pro. But at least I am not a hater for those who want's to buy RF gear.

Their best may be the crew that Martínez is wearing in his match vs Medvedev.

They are also doing shoes but have no idea about quality. Anybody wear them?

Said someone, who had in his hands every Fed outfit from Uniqlo (issued to the public) from RG onwards and Nike (RF) in the past ten years. Not only are they not "Nike-ish", but the Nike materials have gone down the drain, becoming literally like a bin bag (who could forget the abomination AO 2018 and many other instances where the shirts were literally sticking to the players. Here for your enjoyment of "premium materials":







whereas Uniqlo has been quietly using a mixture of materials produced by one of the biggest petrochemical companies and pioneer in synthetics Toray (Japan) and were never "Nike-ish" in any iteration that I know of. You "seem" to know what Federer has been wearing on himself, even though you never had his personal items in your hands, so you are talking out of your behind for obvious reasons. The rest of your comments are indistinguishable to me as to what they have to do with anything outside of what is weighting on your mind also for obvious reasons.

And yet you're apparently the one who is looking to 'acquire the Federer original model' having purchased the '...details...underwhelming' retail items...I guess you need to to 'complete the outfit' with your logo-ed socks, wristbands and headbands that you stated you purchased - you also stated that you don't like gratuitous logos.
