[UNIQLO] Roger Federer RF logo cap - $39.99



A little background: https://www.gq.com.au/style/news/roger- ... c857e6b81e

TL/DR: When Federer signed with Uniqlo in 2018, Nike wouldn't give up the RF logo to Federer even though his contact had expired. Fast forward almost 3 years, and Federer finally has his logo back, and it's a re-launch of his classic RF cap with Uniqlo. Cheaper than the Nike version too; believe those were selling for $59.99 retail.

The cap was launched today, and a lot of colours online are low in stock or sold out. You may have better luck in-store if your region isn't in lockdown. Uniqlo hasn't been the best in keeping up inventory for Federer's past items, so I don't know if there'll be a re-stock.

EDIT: The cap is basically sold out abroad. No stock at Uniqlo UK, Germany, Japan, Australia....

$40 for a lid? Definitely RF and not RFD.

Obviously a niche item, but I never bought the old $60 Nike cap because of the price. Current one is more accessible.

Colours selling out on launch day, kinda back that accessibility.

I thought this forum was for deals?

Would this hat go well with my $1,790 Burberry t-shirt?

Mods can move this to Expired Deals. Sold out online (as expected).

Good luck finding the cap in-stores.

I do have my OG RF Nike but I was looking forward to this release. Does anyone know if this will be a mass produced hat or is this some limited drop?

Recognizable hat logo if you’re into tennis.

I think it will eventually be mass produced because Federer now owns it. He was sponsored by Nike before but after switching to Uniqlo, Nike held on to the RF logo until they sold remaining inventory. Sounds like that is done now and he can finally use the logo again (I don't think he's worn it in the past couple years either).

I see limited stock for the green and teal caps. Will probably sell out in minutes.

Uniqlo doesn't have the best track record of making their tennis/Federer apparel available.... so I'd just grab one now. (EDIT: just saw black and blue low in stock)

This reminds of the Kawhi situation where he wanted to used his Klaw logo with New Balance... but Nike wouldn't allow it.
