Yes, I am doing it. I am getting ready to blog on the topic that is hitting the streets all over the country. USPA. United States Polo Association??? I may not be a die hard fashionista, but I am VERY familiar with my designer clothes. Let me start off by saying that USPA looks neat, and therefore it is acceptable. But when people are throwing it up like it's the real thing!?!?!?! Now, I'm going to have to call them out.
Let's start with the logo's.
The logo to the left is USPA, the one to the right is Polo. This is what irks me about these shirts. They "tried" to closely immitate Polo's logo. If you notice on the USPA logo there are a slew of race horses rather then just one, much like the Polo brand. Yea, If I were the race horses I'd be racing to get the fuck off these shirts as well. And I'm not sure if USPA got the memo, but it's a pony on Polo's logo.
Next we will go into detail on how USPA copied Polo's release of the large pony graphic shirt.
To the left is USPA's design. Notice the large number on the sleeve as well as the large graphic of the race horse(s). To the right of us we have Polo's large graphic polo. I'm sure the quality of the stiching is heavier and better detail. But look at it!! Ain't that about a bitch. Damn near the same exact shit.
The last and final aspect is the price. After seeing a slew of these USPA shirts popping up on loved ones and all over SoHo I ventured out to see where someone would cop one of these bad boys. After shooting USPA polo's in google, the first site that popped up was Sears. Yes, I said it...SEARS!!!!! I thought Sears only sold appliences?? Soo umm, on the way to pick up your fridge did they have a USPA section next to it??? Anywho, the average Ralph Lauren Polo ranges from $85 to $150. The average price of a USPA polo is a mere $15.00 to $29.00. First of all, I am MAD MAD MAADDD at anybody who pays $30 for one of these shirts!!! To make matters worse, USPA decided to drop some bootleg "Polo" sneakers as well. OH MY GOD I CAN'T.
Here's what the problem is...I'm no Gucci and Versace wearing hussy. But I know how to shop. Shopping is my life. They have REAL Polo in Marshalls!!! The people rocking these USPA shirts are going IN on how fly they are and how they don't rock fake shit and how they know how to dress. I'm starting to think whether or not they know that it's fake shit!!??!?! Maybe they think it's Polo's sister brand?? I'm not hating..If USPA is all you can afford then more power to ya!! But pleasse, please, pleeeaseeee keep ya ass low key. Don't try to be seen with USPA..The word is OUT!!! That is NOT the business.
P.S. There is even a Facebook fan page..Ya'll know I had to join that mess!! HAHAHAHAA
