    According to the Yonex Japan website Lee Chong Wei, Taufik Hidayat and Peter Gade are going to wear the following new Yonex attires. Lee Chong Wei (blue), Taufik (Red), Peter Gade (White) and all three of them will wear the black attire. The last picture is an impression of how they look with their clothes. They may just start wearing them in the Japan Open SS.

    Some how the single-sleeve top just doesn't work for me :eek:.

    Size: M, L, O
    Polyester 90% Nylon, 10%

    I like the single sleeve design. But the color combinations is horrible. It doesn't even match with the ugly looking Z Slash(Yellow is not Gold!!!).

    Yonex need to fire all their design team, for the second time.

    Hey, Kwun, why the spelling check recognize Nike and Adidas but not Yonex? :p

    The picture of the actual t-shirts shown here actually doesn't look half as bad compared to the sketches in the above pictures. However, the gold is still a bit too garish for me. Silver would be better?

    According to Yonex Japan, the shield emblems are not the actual designs but the individual players can select their own emblem 'to express their individuality'.

    It went on to say the feature of the single sleeve is to facilitate movement in the dominant arm. This design allows for smoother movement of the shoulder and arm. I think this apply if the player is a right-hander which so happens all the three featured players here are right-handers. Will a reverse sleeveless be available for left-handers?

    The material of the fabrics is a composition of mixed 'xylitol Berikuru'. Their actual words.. wonder what it means. This feature absorbs sweat and moisture. Prevents heat exposure and enables a player to 'feel comfortable playing in the hot gymnasium'.

    In your mind
    Haha, well, I'm pretty sure they need to have some of them with the single sleeve on the right. I would think the scheme would be that without the sleeve, there is more freedom in arm movement. But as it is, it would only work that way for right-handed players. :p Or else they could wear them backwards, for even more quirky flare! :D

    the new apparels dont look as bad as i thought they would on them, as long as their sleeveless arm isnt skinny or anything then it doesnt look to weird i wouldnt be opposed to wearing one of those now actually but nothing to flashy ig do with the black.

    I'm just wondering..

    ..would they design that apparel for left handed players as well(sleeveless on left side)??..or is that a fixed design; sleeveless on the right side and sleeved on the left side??..
