I am 25 years old and work full time and go to school full time. I wear a Â lot of Polo and Kenneth Cole because I buy it super cheap at work. I jsut bought $69.50 Polo dress shirts for $16.00. I can't afford the expensive shoes and $2,000 suits. I feel inferior on this website because so many people talka bout high end clothing I don't have. What's wrong with the basics like Polo. Am I the only one who feels this way? Please let me know how you feel.
I can't believe nobody's addressed this person's initial concern about products like Polo or KC. There's nothing wrong with Polo. My only complaint is that I feel it is overpriced, by maybe 20%. However, this is true for most items anyway. The quality isn't the best of the best, but it is still better than many of the other brands you see in the typical retail setting. So, I can only suspect 2 reasons why nobody is defending Polo- its overpriced or its ubiquitous. But, with this person's discount, there's no way we can call it overpriced. I don't know if he could do that much better if he went to the discount thrift stores or ebay without spending considerabel time and effort, which he doesn't have since he's going to school full time and working. Basically, I feel a lot of us are sartorial snobs. We have more time than money. If Polo was some small brand which nobody had ever heard of, I think the overall reaction would have been much more positive towards Polo.
