Tennis Fashion at Roland Garros: Roger Federer French Open Nike 2011
Federer's French Open polo will be this Nike RF Trophy stripe tennis shirt in sport red with team red and white, $80. Updates from past polos include a super high-quality lightweight dri-fit, a collar and placket with window-pane detail and "sonic welded seams" for zero discomfort. The yarn died stripe is woven right in and is quite subtle, adding a more youthful, sporty feel to an otherwise traditional cut.
Federer's shorts are constructed of dri-fit woven fabric with a herringbone print and classic tennis short detail; a tailored look (complete with button back pocket) with modern day stretch built in. Alas, we mortals will not be offered this exact short. The version we get is a more simple elastic pull-on with faux fly construction and a zip back pocket, $50.
Will Rog see that checkered flag? Time will tell.
