Slam Fashion. Roger Federer in new Nike for the French Open

Here's what Nike has planned for Roger Federer at the French Open. I am actually quite surprised to see him going so sporty again after his recent success in more buttoned up looking kits. No collar, no placket, no zip fly or structured shorts for Roland Garros. Comfort must be the new fashion king in RF's life. I can relate.

Tech notes: The surface of this crew has been sanded for a soft feel and the ribbed fabric of the collar provides a snug fit that will not loose its shape with use. Bonded side seams and flat locked shoulder seams reduce chafing. 

My favorite thing here? That red t-shirt. The jacket is pretty cool too. It's the Nike Tech Windrunner.
