XXLMAG.com POLO & HIP-HOP, AN ORAL HISTORY PT. 2 «
I just wanted to Mention I grabbed this from my fam Wiggz-lo Website – showyalo.com
Wiggz- Completely revamped the photos and videos to the post to completely give the Article a little moor pizzaz, and Validity .
Enjoy!.. Remember my Faces of a Lo head article? – This partly is some of my logic behind the article. Always A Student to the game, and as a Historian. I enjoyed this Article, but it can go much deeper then this.
I meant to post this last night but I got 3/4 of the way thru it and somehow lost all of the content…needless to say I was pissed and just decided to call it a night. The second installment actually proves to be the better one and is a bit more in-depth. I’m actually not mad that XXL decided to do this because Polo obviously has a heavy presence in the world of hip-hop again as it once did in the early 90′s and it’s only right that this generation be brought up to speed with a little bit of knowledge on why the world STILL can’t seem to get enough of those exquisite garments made by Mr. Lauren….enjoy… . There, we saw Polo go from one of many prep brands worn by street kids in Brooklyn to the most celebrated brand in hip-hop. After peaking with Raekwon’s Snow Beach Pullover in Wu-Tang Clan’s “So Simple” video in 1993, our ‘Lo heads remember how Polo rounded out the ’90s and headed into the new millennium. —Calvin Stovall

Newcomers in China may find market saturated
But foreign companies continue to push aggressive expansion plans
By noon on Monday, a dozen shoppers were milling about the newly opened Marks & Spencer Plc department store on Huaihai Road in Shanghai.
Wearing loose-fitting shirts and drowsy, listless looks, the shoppers, mostly middle-aged women, were outnumbered by the shop assistants inside. Rather than peruse the clothes and accessories put carefully on display, most of them appeared to have entered the store to bask in free air conditioning.
Asked about the scarcity of customers, a saleswoman who declined to provide her name said: "It's Monday and it's already better than we had expected".
The other side of Huaihai Road offered the casual observer a study in contrasts. There a Zara store displayed large posters to advertise a sale and was packed with long lines of customers waiting to pay at counters or trying on clothes inside fitting rooms.
Despite slumping sales, rising costs and increasing competition from domestic online-shopping websites, foreign retailers are showing no signs of wanting to back away from their plans to venture into crowded shopping streets in cities such as Shanghai and Beijing.
