it’s raining mail

Our normally testy UPS delivery man must have been having a good day because we received a package on the first attempt! We are now the proud owners of a pair of Re-Up Lux sneakers, a collaboration between Orchard Street and Reebok.

This is one of two recently released “teaser” pairs for an expanded collab line, images of which can be seen here.

Buy: Re-Up Lux, $90, orchardstreet.com

And we also received packages from both the SEWTA and ATP World Tour that contained each group’s media guide, which includes pronunciation tips for players’ surnames. Hopefully, this’ll make us less of a tool at Indian Wells, where we spent most of the 2008 repeatedly sounding like a total gringo (“Gilles Simon“, “Camille Pin“, and “Alize Cornet” come to mind).

Dork out: The SEWTA has its own book, while the ATP provides an edition that combines the men’s and the ladies’ info. Get a copy of the latter here.

Ripe for the picking: Orchard Street’s Spring ’08 collection



NYC-based streetwear brand Orchard Street teams with Claremont for another tennis-inspired Spring line. (They started up last year.)

The logo with neon yellow roses are back (squint enough and you’ll see its tennis ball skeleton) along with this elaborate “Seven Star Brand” insignia pictured above. That’s just DYING to be a tattoo. Any takers?

Buy: You’ll eventually be able to grab the goods on the Orchard Street website. Right now they’re still peddling the winter collection.

some cool t-shirts: orchard street x claremont

New York shop Orchard Street is back with some more tennis-themed shirts as part of their 2007 Holiday Collection. This tattoo-esque flower/tennis ball design is a far cry (but a great follow-up) to the simple silhouettes and bright block colors from their “ode to the Open” shirts earlier this summer.

What do you think of the designs? Tell us!

Browse: Click on the photos below to enlarge. No word yet on when the holiday collection will appear on the Orchard Street site. (Edit: The shirts are now available.)
