I know you all loved the pink shirt at the French (until it became the shirt of death). But then came the bizarre checked boxers this fall and now this monstrosity, reportedly Rafael Nadal’s outfit for the 2010 Australian Open (via FortyDeuce):
Seriously, what is this mess? Tangerine and fuchsia with coordinating diagonal plaid? The warm up looks fine, but it’s almost impossible to f-up a hoodie.
Between this mess and Roger’s horrendous waiter on safari outfit at Wimbledon, I’m starting to wonder if 1. Nike thinks “tennis” is Brit-speak for “circus” 2. designs are created with the aid of a Twister wheel (“I got my left hand on ‘Michael Jackson’ and my right foot on ‘figure skater'”) or 3. down economy means fabrics from the 80s remnant pile.
But what do I know?
