Big Polo fan, and he't not repping his brand(s) properly.
All suits should be MTM purple label -- we're talking a billion+ dollar company here.
Even if the suits cost Polo couple hundred grand, they are receiving millions worth of exposure, and had they done it right, sales would have spiked. They've had years to plan for this.
These outfits suck.
So, because a company has seen a tremendous amount of success they are immune to mistakes and incorrect brand positioning from time to time? The results speak for themselves -- these uniforms have generated much more negative pub than positive. RL is supplying uniforms in an effort to be patriotic, main goal being to increase sales. Not so sure people are going to want to run out and buy Polo suits/sportswear because of these fugly uniforms.
Polo could have dropped the hammer on the world stage and come up with something classically American, instead they are being ridiculed for ugly uniforms made in China.
In my opinion (better)? Polo did not rep their brands properly (in this case).
Do you think Polo could have done a much better job of presenting something that really wowed people? Maybe the sales will increase by leaps and bounds, perhaps this will be worthwhile for them overall, I just expected more from Ralph -- one of my all time favorite designers. You know it's in vogue to hate "Merica", I feel like Polo could have made a true statement on the global stage.
