Allow me to get all “girlie” here but can I say how disappointed I am in badminton clothes? I like the general cut of the shirt (especially the square neck style) but I hate the colors and designs of them. The colors are all too bright, too flashy, the designs too overpowering and blocky. I’ll show you what I mean:
It kinda hurts my eyes. A nice, simple style is just hard to find. And the pro’s, with their national pride at stake don’t seem to do any better…
The only official team shirt I liked is the one worn by the China team at the recent China Open last week (and the Hong Kong Open the week after). It has a lot of the elements I hate (blocky design, bright colors) but I like the way it is put together (underarm neon is kinda cool when paired with a dark shirt). I also like the plain shoulders, and the neon kinda separating the shirt from the sleeves.
I have a few badminton shirts, most bought in the recent Singles Day shopping event, but I generally just wear general “sports shirts.” I can get simple solid colors, and they work just as fine. But I would really appreciate someone making some good looking badminton clothes.
