raf simons x fred perry = 100-year collection

October 15, 2009

As part of Fred Perry‘s year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of its namesake’s birth, they continue their collaboration with designer Raf Simons, this time creating a small collection inspired by an outfit worn by Perry circa 1947. (Click here for a pic. Kinda sharp, no?)

The pieces look similar to the already-existing collab between Fred Perry and Raf Simons. There’s a single-breasted jacket, baggy grey flannel pants, a white dress shirt, an ivory cable knit sweater, a grey tie (with maroon laurel detail), and a black and white brogue version of some ping pong shoes.

imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, we guess

That multi-year Erke deal as the Shanghai ATP Masters tournament’s official apparel sponsor has churned out some pretty good merch: equal parts classic (polos, tees), outerwear (hoodies, winter jackets, pullovers), and pants in bright colors like lime, fuschia, teal, red, and navy. Graphics punctuate the pieces here and there, and that tooth-shaped Masters Series logo, along with the Erke “swoosh” (or is it a pipe?) also make appearances.

Lacoste, is that you? It reminded us a little too much of Lacoste‘s current website (Exhibit A), but at least they were inspired by something visually appealing.

tommy robredo in tacchini’s young line

October 15, 2009

Tommy Robredo fell to compatriot Rafa Nadal in the third round of the Shanghai ATP Masters in straight sets (6-1, 6-4).

Nadal’s been getting some flack for that green Nike polo he’s been sporting through his run in Asia, but no one can complain about Tommy’s classic look.

The two-time 2009 titleist (Copa Telmex in Argentina, Brasil Open) wearing a the Young line from Sergio Tacchini — the same design that John McEnroe made famous back in the day. And of course he accessorized the outfit with a white-banded TW Steel watch.

Draw: Up next for Rafa is Ivan Ljubicic, who won after Gael Monfils hopped on the Shanghai injury train because of a bad back (Murray, Roddick, del Potro, Haas, Acasuso, and Zverev are already on board). See the draw here.
