Andy Murray, who I think has one of the best baller sites around, is giving us a behind-the-scenes peek at a fitting for his 2009 Fred Perry gear.
The Brit baller is seen in a meeting discussing the design inspirations and getting fitted for his new duds:
It's an interesting process, which is all the more important to pro athletes. Whilst we might just size clothes up in a 'well, it kind of fits' kind of way, these guys have to feel totally comfortable in it day after day.
Every little detail is looked at, with feedback taken on items from last year.So now you know, a lot of work goes into making sure that shirt sits absolutely right on his shoulders. They even discussed how the fit of the shirt changes over the course of a match.
And, it looks like the designers found an iconic source of inspiration for next season:
Could it be the return of the shorty-shorts to tennis after all? [Insert Rafa/Simone imagery]
This is great stuff. I give big props to Team Andy for consistently giving fans an "insidery" look into his world on and off the court including pre-/post-match thoughts, training, fitness, fashion, and plain ol' fun.
Now if only more baller sites could jump on his bandwagon.
