A passion for food + fashion

Shirting the Issue

TheFoodinista.com will return to her scheduled programming tomorrow, but please indulge me another sartorial tennis musing. Can we talk about Nadal and Monfils and their matching Nike NYC Collection shirts in contrasting peacock hues of Midwest Gold and Glass Blue with gradated dots, respectively? Frankly, I think the embarrassing wardrobe gaff is what rattled Rafa’s cage in the opening sets, but you would think Nike could’ve seen this coming. Federer, take note for Sunday. Your favored Nike Open Men’s Polo in Challenge Red/Black (admittedly a step up from your staid Court Tennis Polo in White and Jersey Gold, yawn) against Rafa’s yellow is going to read awfully Spanish flag when you guys face off. Advantage Nadal?
