File this under, did you know.
Speaking of OCBDs. Did you know that Polo, the Ralph Lauren mega-brand, can’t use the word “Polo” on a polo shirt? The word “polo” when used in reference of a woven shirt with a button down collar, is the property of none other than the shirt’s inventor, Brooks Brothers. It is also worth pointing out that Mr. Ralph Lauren was a tie salesman at the Brooks flagship store (346 Madison) just prior to launching his label. Coincidence? Maybe not.
As my father likes to say: “That is a little known fact, not worth knowing.”
