    The biggest "offender" being Ralph Loren Polo.

    How many of you wear items of clothing explicitly associated with a given sport or activity that you have never taken part in - whether actively or a spectator.

    Are you a Polo wearer who's never been to a polo session?
    Are you a "Yachting Crew" wearer who's never been on a boat?
    Are you a Man U shirt wearer who's never seen Man U play live?

    Who's confessing first?

    For the most part I don't know or care what sports people play, so I'd never know whether or not their clothes matched their hobbies! I don't wear any sportswear at all so I don't.

    Offender? Errr, what? How could any of that be an offense? What about people in foreign countries? Oh, so they can't wear a Man U shirt (without being an "offender") because they've never had a realistic opportunity to go see them play? What if they just want to wear one because they just want to wear one?

    Edit: stuff like "yachting crew", ok, maybe. But not the rest. I mean most people these days don't even associate polo shirts with polo anyway.

    Damnit, now Ive got to throw away my England cricket practice top. Ah well, the massive adidas on the back was annoying anyway.

    "Offender" in the sense that the fashion police might come after you

    Right, ok, that makes more sense.

    As in, at least people who have some kind of connection with the sport have an alibi for wearing such horrible things. :P

    People because each sport has it's desirable connotations.

    Polo- wealth, upper class
    Boxing- tough-guy, ability to defend yourself
    Surfing/ skating - rebel cool.

    It shouldn't be that way but generally it is. What is fashion if not a way to communicate something about yourself without telling them. aha

    And yeah i do it. I wouldn't hold it against some one for doing it either, no more than i'd hold it against a punk to have a mohecan or dying it pink

    Polo Ralph Lauren isn't exclusivley for polo players, why would they sponsor wimbledon and golf championships if that was the case?
