New RL Polo

What do you think? New look for Polo? Jon.

What does it say?
post #3 of 15
The graphic is beautiful, but I'm ignorant of its meaning. Does it say "$75"? The "RL" watermark or whatever is tacky appropriation. I wouldn't wear it.

Damn...Where are the streetwear police when you need them...

I refuse to move this thread... I can't read Chinese, but it would be great if the wording was "I am a man who sells my buttocks for money".  I would buy one for my brother (who doesn't read Chinese either). imo, shirts that have Chinese (faux or otherwise) writing on them (from Polo, no less) are one rung lower than faux vintage t-shirts from Urban Outfitters.

I don't know...its so tacky I kind of like it. Wouldn't buy it, but I like it nonetheless. Jon.

I don't know why anyone would buy clothing featuring prominent writing in a language they don't understand. This also applies to the mangled Engrish on Japanese products. Even worse are tattoos in nonsensical or backwards characters. LA Guy, during the "kamikaze" shirt craze of the mid-80s, a guy I know screened some shirts and headbands with the rising sun emblem and Japanese phrases like "stupid tourist" or "I have diarrhea." He was trying to get someone with a store on Hollywood Boulevard to sell them, though I don't know if they ever did. Personally I want to publish a book of tattoo designs. If someday you run across a girl with a lower back tattoo of the characters for "entrance" pointing down, you'll know she bought my book.

LOL. I was think something more like the word 'insert' pointing down. Jon.

I guess I am the only person on this forum who would wear that shirt.

I could see wearing an actual t-shirt from Tokyo or Beijing that looked something like that, but buying an (overpriced) Polo imitation of what should be the provence of street vendors? No thanks. Most of my faith in Mr. Lauren's stylistic consistancy was shot by these:

Guys, Those are both very clever. And so darned appropriate. Thanks for the laugh.

Absolutely disgusting. It's such a joke displaying something that you don't even know what it means. I kid you not - a friend of mine got a tattoo that even the tattoo artist was not aware it had a second meaning: "take it in the ass." Whoever made that stencil is a genius.

my friend tells me that the large print says something to the effect of "yellow elegant building." (in order of the characters). the small print below says "travelling hourse." (some sort of a polo horse euphemism?) ...i can think of other places to spend the money...

I have those pants in blue with the ponies all over them and always get lots of compliments when I wear them.
