Prints are in for men when it comes to shorts this season. Notable pros to step out in printed shorts at the start of this season include Roger Federer and Juan Martin Del Potro. Here are my top five printed men’s tennis shorts.

Best of 2013: Tennis apparel

We tennis players are a good lookin’ bunch! Our sport of choice would certainly win the “best dressed” award when put up against the competition. Our Tennis Warehouse playtesters have picked their favorite racquets, shoes, and strings of 2013, and now we’re looking at clothing. So without further ado, here are our favorite apparel pieces and brands for the year.

In late 2013, we introduced a new men’s brand called Travis Mathew. It outfitted James Blake in the latter years of his career. After retiring, Andy Roddick also signed on as an ambassador as well as an investor. It’s all about great style and feel for this Southern California-based brand. Count Jason and our own Andy Gerst as fans.

You might think, “Oh great, another high-end clothing company looking to tap into the tennis market.
