Boring I know... but white clothes are classic and everyone needs a few as staples. I really like the light green Nishikori pops.

Heres what has been shown so far on the official website.

Nishikori (I like)

The shirt is nice imo. Shorts too plain. They should have atleast put accents on the pockets like last year

Rogi (Still like but less fun)





Interestingly enough.... the socks have slightly different make ups:

FEDI: 57% Cotton, 26% Acrylic, 11% Polyester, 4% Nylon, 2% Polyurethane
NISH: 58% Cotton, 26% Acrylic, 11% Polyester, 4% Nylon, 1% Polyurethane
WOW,, boring colors........... only at Wimby. why don't they just bring back the White balls too while at it

Still don’t like Nishikori’s shirt which has two part front panel.
They should just make one front panel and put graphics, patterns or lines instead of two part front panel.

Also Nishikori short looks exactly same from FO except drawstring color.

It’s very strange that uniqlo had very limited quantities for Wimbledon gear at US online store.
Not sure they will add more products later..........

Looks like everything but the socks are still in stock
Socks and wristbands were gone.
Popular size M and L shirts and shorts were gone (for Fed. Nishikori items sells slower so it’s available but quantities are limited than FO)
It might show in stock but when you click M or L, it said out of stock in US online store.
Hard to believe uniqlo only had limited numbers than FO items.

I also think it might be flippers. Hoping Rogi scores another (possibly final) Wimbledon. Those will sell for a fair bit more than what Uniqlo charges

They do make more M and L size. They are not stupid hahaha.
Even though XS and XXL sizes are limited, it’s not sell well so it feels companies make exactly same for each size but that’s not true.

Just bought my Federer shirt. I don't really know if I will like this shirt enough to wear it to play tennis. I don't know if I will be a fan of that collar.

Yes, the stitching will make the shirt uncomfortable without an undershirt while this shirt could have easily been made to be more comfortable. I would have bought one if they did what you suggest they do.

I had the same problem years ago but decided to lift weights. Now I only use XXL shirts. You should do the same thing.

If it was that uncomfortable Nishi wouldn't wear it and Uniqlo wouldn't sell it.
Designs and opinions aside... from their button downs to undies and other clothing... comfort has NEVER been an issue with Uniqlo... so I would give them the benefit of the doubt here

He doesn't wear the same shirt we get. Uniqlo gives us a shirt that's modeled after the ones they wear, not the real deal. Have you wore Kei's purple shirt without a shirt underneath it? Not very comfortable. I'd be very surprised if he deals with the same stitching as us.

I dunno, the cut and stitch look to me similar to me. Sure maybe a slight change in the actual shirt material but his shirt has a stitch across the chest and regardless of material it'd be apparent on contact. Could he feel it? probably. Would it be the wort feeling ever? no
If there was no stitch it would be very hard to have 2 different color materials without one of the colors being "inked" on which is arguably worse

Yes, they do indeed seem to be the same. I am surprised because this shirt is not comfortable at all. I can't believe a competitor would have to deal with this stitching running across their back. You'd think Kei would say something. Maybe I'm just easily irritated. It does say though, on the site, that the shirts we get are only models of the real deal. So I don't know what's going on with that. I thought for sure there was some weird stitching situation or something as I'm not a clothing expert.

I know for a fact his is tailored. But the rest is indeed a mystery. Does your shirt fit you tight or loose?

It used to be loose and now it's tighter (put on some weight :(). Definitely less comfortable when it was looser as the stitching would repeatedly come off my skin and land back on it, where now it kind of hugs my back so the body may habituate a bit.

Off topic but flew out of SFO last week (Alaska Airlines terminal) and there was a Uniqlo down jacket vending machine. What a time to be alive! :)

i do work out... and the only thing that happened was i had to buy bigger underwear and shorts... they just kept getting torn off...
 
OK, I'm not trying to admire Fed's back side... It's odd (amazing?) how terrible Fed looks in his shirt. Something about how the shirt is cut... It looks terrible. I also think it's possibly the material that looks hard.

Nah...I've always worn XXL shorts naturally. I didn't need to work out for that. The only problem are my hips. They're too small for XXL but the rest of it fits.

You must be doing something wrong. It only took me a couple of years to move from medium to XXL.
Well, when someone lifts weights in the gym; its not always to have a body like arnold schwarzenegger or some random dude with humongous muscle mass. There are different goals and reasons for lifting. For example your gould could just be having an aesthetic but functional body like for the actors and actresses seen at movies. Or for performance like nadal and other top athletes. And also, Having big muscle mass does not usually equate to being stronger, you could look big and scary but inside the muscle to fat ratio is off

We were talking about moving from medium size to XXL size so increasing muscle mass was the topic. Johnwah had an issue with wearing medium shirts but XXL shorts.

I'm all muscular but not big, so it will not limited my agility for playing tennis and cross-country skis.
I've experienced some limited mobility due to the increase in muscle mass. I try to make up for it by increasing the power and spin of my shots.

It's not. The only way to get jackets with original logos is either buying Novak/Kei ones off auction sites or getting PE versions for fedr and friends.

If/when it does get released you still won’t be able to buy it. The M sizes will be sold out and you can’t fit XXL. Weights are your friend.

I need a 3XL shirt. 2X fits fine, but once it gets washed, it'll be too snug, and I like shorts oversized IE Roddick.

Mostly cotton material can be shrink after washing and put into dryer.
Poly material can be shrink but rarely happen.
Best for apparels are
Inside out then cold wash and hang dry.
Cotton material won’t be same after washing but poly material will be same.
