I worked as a cashier at a Ralph lauren store ( redondo beach, has since closed )during college in 1995. At that time, tyson beckford became the marketing face of the brand and we began to see a shift in demographics. I think it started with more black people inquiring about polo branded shoes( i think Polo canvas shoes were quite popular around that time ).
this thread was so nicely buried, and you had to bring it back up again.
Welcome to the forum, dyyhard.
Rugby's price is upper medium
Learned something today, thanks.
Fuck POLO. How about worrying about raising your own net worth because thanks to you sheep Ralph Lauren's net worth is 7.5 Billion. After buying his cheaply made in China bullshit now he wants you to buy his vintage cartoon POLO Bear. Hip Hop is who pushed him to billion dollar status while the only status you have is when you update your Facebook. Do you think Ralph Lauren gives a fuck about hiphop beyond our dollars? When hip hop wakes up and starts owning RL stock, when Ralph Lauren acknowledges and thanks hip hop and when he starts having his clothes made in America and create some American jobs then and only then I will get off his back
Polo RL is a good brand from which acceptable products spring!
Granted, it's by far not the best one can do, but most of us can afford it and (again) is great quality for the price.
For those reasons, Lauren should have a good name for himself.
Great post. People love to overpay for labels.
