New Hoodie Collection from Old School Tennis showcases the VIVA Collection

viva vitas hoodie.pngviva arthur hoodie.png
These hoodies speak for themselves, but we really love that they are paying tribute to two legends who we lost too soon - Arthur Ashe and Vitas Gerulaitis. They're lightweight, 50% cotton, 50% polyester, from Hanes. Perfect warmup sweatshirt for when the weather breaks a bit and its a little cooler outside.

First look at Nike Tennis Classics shoe package

fragmenttennisclassic.jpgNever to be outdone by rival adidas (see adidas Tournament Pack brings the tennis classics back!), we have a first look of the Nike Tennis Classic Pack - which includes Tennis Classics in gray, blue and "bordeaux" which is a fancy way to say "maroon." The kicks are suede and an outlined Swoosh without stitching. In addition, a small stamp from the designers, Fragment Design< is stamped on the back of the heel. So they aren't a direct parallel to the adidas classics really, we'd rather have seen them in the classic looks. No official release date yet.

Serena Williams Nike Apparel for Spring

nike-serena-spring08.jpgWe're digging the "conservative and feminine look" that Serena Williams is sporting with this season's NIke threads. Nice colors, clean design, classic looks with understated detailing. And the bow on the shoulder really caps off the look.

Nadal's Nike Gear for the French Open

It looks like greens and olive khaki's for the world's #2 (#3 if Nolo keeps it up). As usual, it will be the Nike Dri-Fit Sublimated Sleeveless shirt and the Dri-Fit Capri (capris being something we're still on the fence about). On the footwear, Nada will be in the Nike Air Max Breathe Cage II in classic green/white/black metallic. And the obligatory wrist and headbands.

Federer's Nike Apparel for the Spring Season

You can't cover Sharapova's new nike threads without also talking about Federer's, so here we go. I don't know where Down The Line digs this stuff up, but it never fails to impress, so thank you.

fed+nike+miami+2.jpg
Looks like Fed will be sporting the Nike Sphere React Cool Polo in white + dark obsidian and the Dri-Fit Control Short in black for the Sony Ericsson Open.

fed+euro+blue+chill.jpg
For the European clay-court season, it will be the Sphere React Cool Polo in blue chill.

dTL Women's Tennis Apparel - Fashion Meets Function

dtl.jpgWe are very intrigued and interested in dTL Sport's (Down the Line Sportswear) women's tennis clothing. Functional, fashionable, unique styles, and affordable! What a novel concept!

We're no experts on women's fashion, but we know what we like. And we like designs that are flattering, unique (i.e. not the same old same old from the big apparel makers), and able to be worn during matchplay.

They are aspiring to enter a market that's dominated by some very powerful players - not the least of which are Nike, adidas and Reebok. Very smartly, dTL has taken a page our of the Tupperware book, facilitating what they call Courtside Parties, which are "informal gathering(s) at a home, business or even at the tennis courts after a match." Holding such a party allows people to earn credits towards future dTL purchases. Brilliant.

Thank you to Tennis News Blog for alerting us to dTL.

Stella McCartney / adidas Tennis Dress

mccartneyDress.jpg

As Tennis News Blog says, "...the current trend in tennis apparel is now more than just something you wear when you play tennis. It is also about turning heads and looking great." I have no idea how well this apparel performs in actual match play, but it certainly is a beautiful design.

Check out Stella McCartney at adidas
