Ok I’ll be the first to say that I don’t know why I can’t peel myself away from this Roger-mania. I really fell for whatever Nike‘s doing to keep up the buzz about his fashion sense.
To recap: until today, we’d only seen bits and pieces of his 2007 Wimbledon outfit. First I caught wind of the style of shirt he’d be wearing, and that they were to be paired with gold shoes. Then we saw the cap — embroidered with a monogrammed crest — at Satuday’s press conference. Then came the photo shoot with the the casual wear: blazer, pants, jumper, and bandana. And today he comes out with two match play shirts (one with an embroidered crest, the other with the gold stripes) and a crazy quilted bag. Jesus Christ there were so many layers to peel off. I couldn’t get enough of it.
Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
The folks at SlamXHype gives us some close-ups of Roger’s bag. One side of the quilted-patterned duffel has the “RF” logo and the other has the Swoosh.
The quilted/gold motif carries on to Roger’s shoes. On the right, you can see how they look when they’re worn.
Nike provided him with two shirts: one with the gold stripes (right) and the other with the “RF” crest, which goes along with the blazer and white pants.
And these are the pictures of the outfits coming together. The sports jacket, warm-up pants, and shorts.
I say they did pretty well. Much better than last year’s slapdash job. At least for before the match, the pants really help define the style he’s going for.
So, what do you think? Tell us!
