Other than hype, if someone could explain why Polo is so good, I'll take back my remark. Leave out the quality, yes, I know it's good. But there's SO MANY ALTERNATIVES, like too fucking many. Other than, that's there? Bears on shirts, Horsey's on gold shirts with extra long back but fucking half forarm length sleaves, 5 organic pantone colored jackets and shit, blegh.
And YES, I DO own Polo items, but they were gifts, and I don't even wear them.
Look at this, what the fuck is this. This guy looks like a fucking square, he doesn't drink or smoke, he rather sip on tea than brandy, and he loves books... But in actuality, he sells krills on the corner of 135th and lennox.
yo, first off if we are going by only observations, niggga is jacked and has a tattoo on his right arm, coulda butt-raped and killed 3 dudes for all you know.
but back on point, you seem to misunderstand why people and especially those from the hood love polo. It's something they could strive for, it was expensive clothing, that only rich white folk could buy. And like it or not, it is a classic look.
Whether, you are from some corner on baltimore, kid from nantucket or some japanese kid trying to act american. A RL Polo, is classic, looks good on practically anyone as does most of the clothing.
Yes, if you go hardcore and wear the shorts, with the polo, with the shoes...you look like a tacky ass mofo. But fact is most people dont do that, instead they have a sweater or a jacket etc.
Polo wont die, Tommy Hilfiger was a fad, but Polo is a legend.
