I like sunshine and cucumber sandwiches as much as the next girl, but I’m confused by ad campaigns that play upon these interests specifically. It doesn’t seem very practical – who actually plays croquet? Or wears hip waders and a rugby jersey? (Tommy Hilfiger, I’m asking you directly.) Or plays polo? Besides wealthy English people? And while I’m sure dukes and etc. have a blast playing the noble sport, it’s an extremely niche market, Ralph Lauren. There aren’t many dukes out there in Ontario to buy your polo tees.
If you or your friends look like this when you hang out, please let me know and I’ll take it all back. I promise.
