Created for the 2009 Wimbledon Championships, Nike works up a new apparel collection for tennis superstar Roger Federer:
“This year we took inspiration from a jacket in the Nike Sportswear line, the M-65. Based on this modern interpretation of a classic military silhouette from 1965, we used the body as a starting point and created a tailored look for Roger to wear when walking on and off court. This contemporary piece is intricately hand-crafted and includes engraved zipper pulls with premium detailing throughout the garment that’ll give Roger a clean, understated look as he walks on court. The herringbone texture speaks to traditional menswear, tailoring elements, bespoke suits, and classic menswear fabric.
There is also a coordinating vest, polo and trousers that Roger can wear in different ways depending on the weather throughout the tournament. These have also been designed to be worn for his pre-match warm-ups as they incorporate Dri-FIT fabric technology that works to keep them cool and wick sweat away from the skin.”
