    New national team wear included in the Sports Wear catalogue, including Japan which we have already seen them wear in the past tournaments . One of my favorites so far is the one also worn on the cover here .
    Full 2013 Badminton catalogue is out as well and for a change does include their latest rackets ARC11 and ARCFB (unless than means something else is still in store for AE ). LCW gracing the cover again in the same outfit as last year but in full colour and different shot.

    There are a few exceptions, but I'm a bit disappointed by Yonex lately: boring, plain, old-fashioned apparel. Business chique in my humble opinion. The Team Japan wear is definitely something different (in a good way, although their 2012 pre-Olympic wear was my favorite with the red/white arrows), or the polo-shirt with the lightning strikes (as worn by Lee Chong Wei during the Malaysia Open)

    Yes it is more plain every year now . The LCW one is from the 2012 Fall & Winter catalogue already, obviously it wasn't pretty enough to get noticed until LCW started wearing it . If you get the yellow one you can pretend to be Pikachu if you put on some ears as well .

    Agreed. Loss of creativity? Super plain boring compared to previous years.
    The same applies to shoes design also.

    Maybe Yonex is trying to let the shirts look more luxury and more prestige with the plain looks.
    If they are really trying to do this way, I also have to say: Yonex, you fail with that and you're boring.

    I think Yonex new design try to be on par with tennis series. To suit not only Asian but European taste as well as mostly European players will wear them on court.
    My Favorite designs: 10108, 10109 (cover photo), 10090, Japan new team wear, 10096(red/white only), 12062 (lightning bolt/thunder w Hawaii feel), 10106 (Blue/Green only), 10089. Funny that 10055 & 10056 still selling after being featured in few past catalogs. Much due to its plain design. Its a risk that they try simple design.

    As a Yonex endorsee, i am very disappointed in the new range for 2013. It seems that variation of design is the in thing with Yonex rather than creating great shirt designs which they have historically done.

    I do wonder what is happening at Yonex because they are not wowing us and bringing out designs we all want to be wearing. The design team has either a new brief based on minimum change or the best designers have left because they are falling so far behind some of the competition.

    Victor seems to have a far better design team at the moment.

    Don't think you have to worry about what's in this catalogue as it is for the Japanese market (though the sponsored players on tour will be supplied with these). Some replica versions might make it's way to South East Asia at more affordable prices but these are not the designs for the international lineup (which will be even more bland as usual , though a few are similar, namely the tennis ones and those marketed as national team wear for Denmark, Germany, Indonesia and Malaysia in this Japanese online catalogue)
    It has taken Victor Europe long enough to let some Asian designs slip through as well and even then in limited numbers/designs/colours ...
