The Polo earned its reputation among the green of the tennis court, but like many sports clothes it earned its name on the streets. From the euro hip-hop kids in Paris to the American West Coast skaters, its iconic nature has transcended throughout time crossing a range of social boundaries – whether that be on or off the field.
