Here is Roger Federer's US Open 2019 outfit from Uniqlo. The outfit will go on sale on August 19th some UNIQLO stores and online ahead of the tournament kicking off on August 26th.
Like his previous outfits, this is another collaboration between Uniqlo Japan and the Paris research and development centre led by Christophe Lemaire.
The fabric is said to have a high wicking and quick-drying properties thanks to the performance material “Dry EX” jointly developed with Toray. Will it keep him cool in the New York humidity that derailed his US Open last year against Millman?
In terms of colours and design, I like it. Uniqlo says it's a one-tone design inspired by a tuxedo, suitable for an elegant playing style. Not sure on the flat collar but I like the detailing on the sleeves.

I wanted a full body black style for the design of this US Open, I received a proposal from the design team for a wonderful and sophisticated outft. The details and concept of the design are based on a vision that goes beyond sports based on LifeWear's philosophy. Thanks again to UNIQLO's design team for providing special wear for all tournaments. Federer on his US Open 2019 outfit
You can also see his practice t-shirt above which has a US Open court print on it. For me, it looks a bit low budget like the sort of thing you could produce on an online t-shirt designer using a stock photo of a tennis court but I'd need to see the finished article and print quality to make a final judgement.
What do you guys think of the outfit? Let me know in the comments.
