Dapper + Gent : US Open 2012 Mens Style

Andy Murray captures the US Open 2012 last night and finally his first Grand Slam to followup his Olympic gold medal win last month. Murray have lost his first four Grand Slam finals — against Djokovic in the 2011 Australian Open, and against Roger Federer at the 2008 U.S. Open, 2010 Australian Open and 2012 Wimbledon. It had been 76 years since a British man won a Grand Slam singles championship and, at least as far as Murray was concerned, it was well worth the wait. But this was a different win for Murray as this was on a Grand Slam tourney, the standard measure for tennis greatness and the 287th since Britain’s Fred Perry won the 1936 U.S. Championships as the event was known back then.

Yet last night watching the men’s final the style evolution we see on the top players apparel style have evolve throughout these years. Murray was a former Fred Perry spokesperson wears the German sportswear Adidas now.  Fashion-wise, Andy’s wearing different colors of the same outfit with a mix of the all-blue version, a blue and white combo and a lighter blue with sometimes the blue and orange combination – something different from blue and red.

Djokovic on the other hand went a bit tailored and looks well put with an indigo apparel from his new partner, Uniqlo, the big Japanese sportswear apparel company. He tends to go more red, white and blue same color combination like he did at the French Open and at the Olympic Games.

Roger Federer always look great and fabulous and very dapper with use of the classic American colors perfectly. Sometimes he uses a white shirt, and sometimes the dark blue.  While the evolution of men’s style have been the closest impression to show the players personality, they have come a long way.
