As you may have noticed from Wimbledon, the ballboys are usually the best dressed people on the court. Of course, it’s usually through a judicious application of summer whites…but that’s not to say a few patches of color wouldn’t improve things.

This is Ralph Lauren’s upgrade—soon to be seen on the backs of the 80 ballboys that just completed their tryouts for the U.S. Open—and it’s pretty handsome stuff. Ralph being Ralph, it’s a bit more polo than tennis, but in the less strict confines of the U.S. Open, it should fit right in. And of course, if you find yourself playing lineman for any less professional games this summer, it might not be such a bad piece to have handy.
