Ralph Lauren's logo is also sometime way too big IMO, then why...

    then why nobody here complains about this fact. I'm not trying to question its quality, etc. But it seems to me that there are double standards here. Thanks!

    There have been many posts on the subject, but it sells, so they'll keep making the large logo.

    Actually, the size of the logo and the "herd" of polo ponies that now dominate some RL Polo shirts is the butt of quite a few jokes or comments on Styleforum.

    I think that most of the members here don't like big logos (or really any logos on clothing) and steer clear of the RL Polo shirts with the "big pony" as a consequence.

    Very true, its sad that the big pony ones are the most modern fit i.e shorter shirt, slimmer around the arms/waist, but I've found the "custom fit" ones with the regular logos almost the same. I have to admit that i do own one of the big logo ones but that was a special chinese new year edition one that i got at Singapore's Changi airport where the 33 was replaced with the chinese letter for my birth animal.

    Oh my god that is hilarious LOL. Yeah I think they're getting carried away with the size of the pony on the shirt, it was classy in the 90s when it was no bigger than your thumb, now it's just tacky. Speaking of logos, does anyone else not like the express lion logo? Sometimes I'm about to buy a shirt and then I see the logo and I'm like - no thanks.

    This brings the lulz every time.

    I'm actually wearing a rugby similar to the one in the OP right now. Let's see if I can find a pic.

    BOOM

    I still find it funny that RL did not look into the meaning of the term "big pony" in London before releasing their EDP.

    It's a double standard compared to what? I don't get it. Is this carry-over from another thread?

    It is a two-letter abbreviation of a mall brand that I'm wise enough to refrain from mentioning here. Otherwise, I would suffer all-out scorched earth nuclear bombardment... Sorry.
