UNIQLO really missed big on selling Fed merchandise. I cannot buy or even find Fed stuff anywhere. If they are not gonna even market him why signing him for $300M?

Saving money since he moved to Uniqlo since his stuff is hardly available or just doesn't look nice.

I'd say that it's the same Shanghai/Basel outfit but in Blue with white (and maybe black) trims. Let's see.

Because they signed him to promote their whole line of clothes, not just tennis things, which is a very small segment of their catalog. Thus, they are not fully interested in promoting every tennis outfit Federer wears.

I don't understand why this pretty simple concept is so difficult for Fed/Nike fans on this board to understand or accept - at least those always complaining about the distribution levels of Federer's tennis kits.

It is not difficult to understand (even for them), but it is a thing they can blast Uniqlo/Federer for, and they are doing it for it.

You just need to look into the behaviour of some of them to know it: like the guy who cries that there is no Fed merchandise, that his local Uniqlo doesn't have "anything", that he doesn't like the colours and designs, that they don't have XXXL T-shirts for him to wear etc. It is a circus from the Nike fanboys that are angry that Federer left.

There is a very small minority of fans that would like to have to opportunity to buy some of his Uniqlo outfits, but they don't approach the matter like the above group, and yes, it would have been nice if Uniqlo was selling his outfits even in limited quantities, as there were quite a few that were very good. I think that if they didn't want to overstock they could have just continued to do what they did with his Wimbledon 2018 kit: preorder, so that every single outfit is sold for sure.

:cool:

That's just weird, to be angry over something like that.

Buisiness must be so good as they have nothing on the website to buy. Always been like this. They’re so stupid as they are losing so much money. Uniqlo are most difficult clothes to buy online and even in the shops they rarely stock the tennis outfits. Such a joke!

I will say, best men's sweatshirts I've ever worn. Got four of em, and the last two were on sale for 10 dollars each. Score. But yeah, they should always have a Federer range up. Not just a few hit or miss pieces before a Slam.
 
To be fair Trump was very successful obviously well before he even contested for presidency
Fair enough - I just read his comment as criticizing the Uniqlo owner by comparing him to a Trump as President, not as business person.

Although Trump’s success as a business person is debatable (at least shady) i.e. various bankruptcies, IRS investigations, Trump University etc.

But why you would use Trump as an example of a successful billionaire out of all the possible choices is strange. Unless there is an ulterior motive, which doesn’t belong on these boards.

Unfortunately this is where the con started.

He's a weak man's idea of a strong man and a poor man's idea of a rich man.

This probably isn't the worst though...Somebody here once told me that Trump must be a good speaker because of how much he's supposedly paid for public speaking engagements.

Just obvious to see it. Try to buy something online,guess your just too ignorant and arrogant to check and confi what I’m saying is correct. Twat !
I've literally bought all the shorts the guy has worn from uniqlo since the start of the year so yeah I guess I really don't have a clue! haha :-D

Uniqlo needs a dedicated section on their site that sells polos, shorts. socks, T's, jackets, bags, the works. Not just one shirt and one short around Slams. Anything less is a continued fail for them. How Fed lets this continue is beyond me. He's all about "It's important for me that fans can buy my stuff", he has said this-----yet they can't do much of that at all. 1.5 years into the deal---and nothing has changed.

Uniqlo is quite satisfied with the "continued fail" well reflected in their growth as a business and a brand. Federer doesn't own Uniqlo, so he doesn't have a say what the company chooses as their strategy.

Oh, BTW, Nike wasn't giving Federer his own line or logo deep into their partnership never mind 1.5 years. He was wearing their generic stuff, but for someone like you who started following tennis yesterday these things are not that obvious.

I'm assuming you mean all the shorts that were available to the public?
Yeahh correct

Instead of complaining and complaining, be certain you want the item and then get ready as soon as it goes live and wallah it's yours for the taking!

Yeahh correct
It is snark on his part. He knows fully well that Uniqlo doesn't release many of Federer's items, so he is quick at pointing out at that, regardlesss of the fact that he blasts their quality and designs all the time i.e. he has no intentions of buying, which gives a context of his remarks.

Another one who blasts Uniqlo at every turn, complaining about their quality, their lack of availability, their designs, their business acumen etc etc. In the past he complained that Uniqlo doesn't produce size XXXL so that he can wear their T-shirt "how he likes them".

It all started after the switch of Federer from Nike to Uniqlo. You probably get the rest.
