roger’s aussie open day wear

January 20, 2008

More fashion: Top seed Roger Federer and Nike don’t deviate too much from the black and blue they used during the 2007 U.S. Open. (Why fix what ain’t broke, right?) For Roger’s 2008 Aussie Open day wear, the colorway is New Blue, Soft Grey, and White.

Some nice detail, too. Notice the grey stripe running the length of his blue wristband. And of course the monogram on the polo.

What do you think? Tell us!

Buy: Federer Control Polo, $65 (order will ship on 2/6/08); Global Control Short, $45. Alas — the headbands and wristbands are not available.

Scoreline: Roger has taken out Diego Hartfield, Fabrice Santoro, and Janko Tipsarevic so far. His opponent in the fourth round is Tomas Berdych, the first seed Roger will face in this tourney.

more stripes: filippo volandri in EA7

January 20, 2008

Filippo Volandri lost in straight sets to Sebastien Grosjean in the first round of the Australian Open.

The Italian dressed up for his performance (of course!), wearing white from his sponsor, EA7 (that’s Emporio Armani‘s sports line). They’ve also jumped on that stripes trend, adding some diagonal black and white detail to Volandri’s polo. Nice and simple. We like it.

Flashback: See Filippo’s previous EA7 outfits here.

Shop: Everyone’s still doing winter clearance, including EA7. I loved the lookbook. Some highlights below the cut…
